The thing about economics is this:
It stems from the Greek, "oikos", for home, hearth, surroundings, environment. Not from anything to do with money. Fancy that. So ...
eco-logy: knowledge of the home, hearth, surroundings, environment
eco-nomics: management of the home, hearth, surroundings, environment
Worth a thought. Maybe not so diametrically opposed after all. (We'll gloss over the economic doofus who informed me some years ago that he couldn't support my programme to help businesses become greener because "environmental input does not equal economic output". Oh, how silly we were to think otherwise. )
And worth hunting some of these fab people out. Oh, and try Ecosia rather than the G***Gle thing. Make everything count.
