Do you feel more like an ecologist or ecologist, econologists or econolgists?

I propose, but we had already talked about it, to decide once and for all: by amalgamation between ecologist (politician) and ecologist (scientist), I would like us to define the 2 terms in the same way, namely:

a) The econologist: the "political (politicized?)" version of econology or even the "commercial" version ...

b) The econologist: the scientist who, in his reasoning, couples ecology with economy (and vice versa)

Le department of Seine Maritime has just made (September 18, 2008) a conference where ecolgists and econology are clearly cited: to download here: ... -3968.html here is the page:


How ?

The French have appropriated Sustainable Development by
practicing balance, personally and daily,
between economy and ecology

The French are investing in a new space for expression of
environmental awareness: consumption.

They fabricate ways of doing things that combine economy and
ecology without contradiction, seeking compromise
acceptable between "doing well" and satisfying their needs.

Thank you Christophe for these links,

I know from your site that I am an expert econologist, it is written under my nickname, so it must be true! : Cheesy:

In science the ogy, the ist and the cien fight.

We have the geologist, the oncologist.
We have the chemist, the biologist.
We have the physicist, the hydraulic engineer.

Oceanologist / oceanographer

So econologist, econologist, econolocian, econolome, econologist.

I prefer personally as an econologist because:
Ecology -> Ecologist
Economy -> Economist.

Econology -> Econologist.

Hello Christophe, hi Remondo and hello everyone!

For my part Christophe, the proposals seem to me to be quite suitable and reasonable.

But let's see a little further…

If econology is a first step towards a global awareness which would place man in his right place within nature, we would already be taking a gigantic step in the right direction…

But what could be the next step?
This will be the subject of a thread that I intend to launch soon, where it will be about our own development as "a human being" rather than as a "being a consumer".

With greetings from Lietseu :P

Well no because there is also an ecologist:

ecologist is precisely the "political and media" variant ... of someone who is interested in the environment closely but also from afar or not at all, for example: "there are more and more builders of green car ... "...

The main questions for an ecologist when studying ecosystems are:

* how was the colonization of an arid land achieved?
* how did this evolution continue?
* is the current state stable?
* what are the relationships between the different elements of the system?

The ecologist is therefore a scientist ... pure and hard! Unlike the environmentalist who can be cooked with all sauces (especially now with greenwashing and so on ...)
