80% of Homo Sapiens Sapiens live on $10 USD a day or less. Ever so simple simple.  ::) Eckhart is worth $70,000,000.00

Don't get me wrong it is a good gig if you can get it. I'm not complaining just sayin'

Namaste!

this "just saying" thing is one of the most persisting lie people get away with.

it's absolutely not ok to judge someones motives from his bank account alone, at least not if it's within a certain range that even neven, I and others would see a possible wealth cap.

IMO on the contrary, if someone who does not have to work for a living uses his time and resources to spread important news and positive views is worth much more than just being poor. ;)  this after, despite having the means to live with huge climate-relevant negative footprint, coming to terms in the first place is the bigger achievement than having a smaller footprint due to lack of opportunities.

if anything, much more important than simply look at someone's bank account, would be to look-up how it was earned (carbon footprint-wise and ethic-wise) and if there is an running income from work, what that would be. (same criteria because others are none of everyone's business, ethics includes basically everything)

one problem with having $70 million in the bank is that the bank then loans multiples of this .. so there could be 70 million being spent clearing rainforests , another 70 mining in Africa , another 70 planting oil palm .. perhaps another 30 multiples of the deposit .. all working against Eckhart's own principles ..
b.c.

ps .. top climate-friendly action .. get your money out of the banking system .. it is only doing harm in their hands ..

Or support a value based bank. 55 of 'em around the globe now:

A small but growing issue is that cash payments are on decline and some even refuse to take cash nowadays, Ekobanken (the only one here) doesn't provide card payments.

Is the issue about card payment the IT and network that is required ? Or is it the problem that it allows consumption at any time ? I don't get the point.

I met on the Friday for Climate protest a guy who made a list of "top friendly actions", a little bit more than 10. I thought I could share it :

Nothing really new, but a good check list if somebody is looking for one.

Mornin', no it's not technical issues, they are looking at offering both swish and cards but they need more customers before they can take the next step. Ekobanken is built by their customers and they don't have a large investor behind them. Large investors often lack the required ethics.
