Wiki talk:Community Portal
What if a person was shown the localized effects that buying a product might have on climate, cancer, water quality, storm intensity, air pollution, drought, coral bleaching, food supply, fires, flooding, coastal wetland loss, peace, malnutrition, cardio-respiratory disease, sea level, tropical diseases and the economy.
ecofxMeta is about getting numbers related to those correlations -- even if we have to tell readers that there is a broad margin of error. Every purchase, every product, every service, every choice makes an ecological impact in a human's, an animal's and/or an ecosystem somewhere -- and can be demonstrated at a statistical level.
So, let's need to go after those numbers with some bold statistical modeling.
Until we decide our main meeting place, for a next few days, we are inviting Meta participants to post their ecofxMeta formula proposals, calculations and general correlation solutions here on the http://ecofx.org/wiki/index.php?title=Wiki:Community_Portal page. And/or, a person might want to post their ideas to their own blog and then add a link and a summary there, and/or post it to ecofx Facebook.

The <a href="http://www.ecofx.org/card/">ecofx pledge card</a> states:
Before buying (or offering) a product or service, I pledge to estimate the ecological effects it has on natural habitat, on humankind, extinction and/or climate change, and then decide if the personal benefit
outweighs the environmental impact.
As an ecofx member I will:
1/ Use ecofx matrixes and formulas to find out what impact the products or services that I might use (or might offer) have on habitat (in m2 or ft2), other lifeforms (in kg or lbs) and the biosphere.
2/ Show others how to find out the ecofx of products, services and choices.
The <a href="http://www.ecofx.org/card/">pledge card</a> will eventually be double-sided with quick formulas on the back, and other goodies on it too.
#10 The <a href="http://www.ecofx.org/card/ecofxCardTwoSided10Up.htm">ecofx member card print-page #10</a> has 10 cards on each print page. However, your printer and browser combo must be capable to do it, and the top and bottom margins need to be set to zero. Internet Explorer does 10-up pretty well. <a href="http://www.ecofx.org/card/ecofxCardTwoSided10Up.htm">>></a>
