CONVENTIONAL MONEY IS A MEASURE THE ECONOMIC PART OF THE SYSTEM

The MONEY we use for FINANCIAL TRANSACTIONS, WEALTH and CAPITAL

When the population and the economy were relatively small, the impact on society and the environment could be ignored without much consequence.
But the 21st century is different. The population of the world is at record levels, and the degradation of the environment has become consequential, whether it is air pollution, water pollution, land fill, deforestation, ocean plastic or any number of other issues.
