Habitat, Life, Extinction Formulas v2

Explore ecofx wiki to find out how much natural habitat for one year (in square meters and feet) and plant and animal life potential for one year (in kilograms and pounds) is affected by a consumer product or service. There is also carbon footprint, extinction trigger and ecomedia to check out. Make eco smart choices for the biosphere using the matrixes, formulas and other goodies.

If a product does not have a ecofx matrix yet, make one by using the formulas. Then add your matrix here on the ecofx wiki. Edit and expand other matrixes too. Request a user and editor account via emaiI

Write or copy one or more sentences about the ecofx of a product and share it with others -- via facebook, bulletin boards, other wikis and your own ecomedia. Link back to the product's matrix.

Envision a tale or story about the positive effects on a life by not purchasing a product, or the negative effects of purchasing a product. Blog your ecofx tale, then add a link in the ecomedia section at the bottom of a relevant ecofx wiki article. Writers, artists, musicians and media makers are invited to add their ecofx tales as well. Request a user account via emaiI.

The ecofx dance is a way to use ecofx stats to thank your friends for taking environmental actions that help save habitat potential.

* a multi product matrix example *
____ environmental impact of four consumer products ____
Estimated carbon footprint, loss of natural habitat potential for one year, loss of plant and animal life potential for one year, and extinction potential from producing, packaging, shipping and using a product.
-----------

+ Except for CO2 emissions, estimates are based on Habitat, Life, Extinction Formulas v2 via ecofx.org. +
Estimates do not include the possible long-term ecological effects of climate change and persistent toxins.
Formulas use "human appropriated net primary production (HANPP)" to "CO2 emissions" correlation.
-----------
1 kg(kilogram) = 2.2 lb(pounds)   1 m^2(square meter) = 10.8 ft^2(square feet)
1 km(kilometers) = .62 mi(miles)   1 liter = .26 gallons
