I agree with Chris that Marx and Engels appear to have missed a trick on
this topic.

Part of the reason may have been the much smaller pressure on total
resources in their day.

But (from distant memories of reading Martinez Alier's "Ecological
Economics") I suspect that a stronger reason might have been that they were
put off early ecological writers by the attempts of some of the latter to
base value theories on the energy content of commodities.
