Our free market economy is nothing more than a huge auction called 'Supply and Demand', which - very efficiently - puts a price on everything.
The problem is that it allows us to sell everything - the last drop of oil, the last tree, the last fish, the last of everything. It's called growth - but it is, obviously, growth into oblivion - the exact opposite of ecoEconomics. It is a fatal flaw of our present economic system.
Or, as Greenpeace puts it: "When the last tree is cut, the last river poisoned and the last fish dead, we will discover that we can't eat money..."
The solution? - 'Reserve Prices on natural resourcesA reserve price, as defined by ecoEconomics, is the minimum price sellers can charge for a natural resource. This reserve price is always a percentage of the selling price - the 'Reserve Price Component' of that price, which is payable into a 'Reserve Price Fund'. ' - just like reserve prices on rare and valuable items at any other auction - easy and very effective. - A 'Reserve Price Authority' simply adjusts the reserve price of a natural resource to ensure that its supply is and remains sustainable.
The eco-economic price for a natural resource is, therefore, the price you would have to pay if our planet were to release that resource only at a sustainable level.
Reserve prices on natural resources are, in the end, the easiest, if not the only way, to achieve sustainability - and anyone who is unwilling to pay a reserve price on a scarce natural resource, obviously, does not support the sustainable and equitable use of that resource.
In fact, without these reserve prices, someone else is likely to consume (and often waste) your share of scarce natural resources.
Reserve prices on natural resources are, in fact, the ultimate implementation of the 'user pays' principle.
If we had, for example, implemented a reserve price on fossil fuel 30, 20, even ten years ago, we would not be running out of crude oil soon and could have avoided the threat of catastrophic climate change.
Instead, climate change is beginning to be noticeable, dangerous climate change is almost unavoidable - even if we implement a reserve price on fossil fuel today and catastrophic climate change is certain if we don't.
That leaves, probably, the most important question to be answered.
What happens to the money from reserve prices on natural resources?
The money could, of course, be spent on many worthwhile projects, but the most beneficial use for it, by far, is to pay women a basic income - alleviating over half of the world's poverty in the process.
In fact, it will alleviate 75% of the poverty of the world's poor, because 75% of the world's poor are women.
However, in view of our worsening climate crisis, the more urgent need is to use these funds first to prevent climate change.
Unless we solve this problem first, world poverty will increase and worsen and will, in the end, be that much more difficult to overcome - if at all.
In fact, if we don't solve this problem first, billions more of us will slide into poverty, because of rising prices as we run out of our most versatile source of energy - crude oil.
There is NOW only one way out of this dilemma - Real Carbon Credits.
'Real Carbon Credits' - issued by ecoEconomics' 'Emissions Trading Scheme' (ETS) - are the most, if not the only, profitable way to stop global warming and climate change - and to do so while we still have a very, very slim chance. They are also the only carbon credits that will, at the same time, preserve some of our crude oil reserves for future, more efficient, use.
ecoEconomics will, therefore, reward you for supporting this solution with a special, reward class of 'Real Carbon Credits'.
As you will see, your rewards for supporting ecoEconomics are huge and that, of course, means that the 'penalties' for not supporting ecoEconomics are also huge.
On the other hand, if you believe that these rewards are too generous or, worse, even fraudulent, you are, of course, welcome to support ecoEconomics without them.
But remember, the size of these rewards, above all, reflects the urgency with which YOU have to act on global warming and climate change.
Your first rewards ...
To thank you for your first visit to this Web site, ecoEconomics will reward you with 100 FREE (reward class) 'Real Carbon Credits'. - You may claim your reward by sending an e-mail to: gro.scimonocEoce@sdrawer.
Tell a family member, friend or colleague about ecoEconomics (one per e-mail) and - provided you are the first to do so - ecoEconomics will reward you with one (reward class) 'Real Carbon Credit' for everyone you tell.
ecoEconomics will credit your rewards to your e-mail
(If you don't have an e-mail account yet, ecoEconomics recommends Google's Gmail. It is a free, easy-to-use service that comes with many features and plenty of storage space.)
Online access to your 'Real Carbon Credits' account is coming soon.
If there is one thing worth remembering about these rewards, it is this:
A 'Real Carbon Credit' is always worth a barrel of crude oil.
A 'Real Carbon Credit' is always worth a barrel of crude oil, because ecoEconomics has tied the official price of 'Real Carbon Credits' - the carbon price - permanently to the price of a barrel crude oil.
(The value of a 'Real Carbon Credit' is, therefore, currently around US$ 90.)
Should you collect these reward?
Basically it is your (Hopson's) choice. But here are three tips to make your decision a little easier:
Whether you like it or not, the crude oil price will again reach (and exceed) previous record levels very soon. You may as well profit from it by collecting and saving 'Real Carbon Credits'.
Collecting and saving 'Real Carbon Credits' is the easiest way to offset the future cost of having to change to a low-carbon economy.
You can take advantage of ecoEconomics' offer to invest in 'Real Carbon Credits' now, while the crude oil price is still very low, and pay for it later - no deposit, no interest and no payment until the price of crude oil reaches US$ 200.
Investing in 'Real Carbon Credits' - at today's discounted price - and paying for them when the crude oil price reaches US$ 200.
Investing shares/stock in 'Real Carbon Credits' - on the condition that it is more profitable than not investing them.
Swapping non-performing debts for 'Real Carbon Credits' - debt collection with a difference.
Sponsoring ecoEconomics - sponsorship with built-in sales promotions.
