32 Benefits of the Earth Dollar

The benefits of using the Earth Dollar includes financial benefits, as well as social benefits in making the world a better place. Let us all work together to create paradise on Earth.

THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION

The 9 to 5 system was created about 200 years ago during the Industrial Revolution in which people worked with machines from 9 am to 5 p.m.. The Industrial Revolution made many advances in the technology, but were unable to feed millions of people who die from hunger every year. The 9 to 5 system also creates perpetual wars, destruction of the environment, economic enslavement of humanity, kills millions through starvation, hunger and unclean water, oppresses the masses and promotes other horrors in the name of profit and economic growth (GDP).

This 9 to 5 system includes Trickle Down Economics – give to the rich and it will trickle down to the poor, as well as Neoliberalism – protect the ruling class and oppress the poor through measures of austerity.

Solution: The Earth Dollar and our Living Economic System upgrades our economic model to correct its fundamental flaws in the 9 to 5 system to stop the destruction of the environment and to preserve life on Earth. By upgrading our economic system to a 21st century model, we will be planting a seed for the true enlightenment of humanity. With the upgrading of our economic system, true progress and true prosperity will mean that we can value the most important things in life: happiness, good health, clean water, clean air, healthy environment, lush forests, thriving wildlife, caring communities, world peace, inner peace, respect for all cultures, true justice, and a better future for all beings on our planet.

1. Solves climate injustice with long term usage of the Earth Dollar

You are helping to brings climate justice by using the Earth Dollar. Everyone that uses the Earth Dollar is an agent of change and an Earth Guardian.

The Earth Dollar in bringing climate justice can save millions of lives. Climate injustice is one of humanity’s greatest crisis, and the World Health Organization says that climate injustice kills an additional 150,000 people every year due to drought, floods, tsunami, tornadoes, and numerous other avoidable disasters. The people who are most effect by climate are usually the poorest people, so the additional hardship pushes them over the edge.

The Earth Dollar solves the climate injustice crisis by preserving the last remaining forests, planting of billions of diverse trees, reforestation of deserts, maintaining the health of carbon absorbing microbes in the oceans; all these measures will absorb and sequester greenhouse gases that are largely the cause of climate injustice.

The Earth Dollar creates wildlife sanctuaries around the world call “World Heritage Sanctuaries” to protect the last remaining forests, the oceans and sacred places on Earth. The sanctuaries are the last remaining refuge on Earth; the wilderness helps to clean the air and water of pollutants; it is also how to numerous species of plants, animals and ancient peoples. Only less then 10% of the land with intact forests on Earth remain.

The Earth Dollar can pump trillions of dollars into the sustainable economy to fund the development of green and sustainable projects; this includes encouraging the installation of millions of solar panels on homes and the wide usage of electric cars.

2. Reconnects us back to nature

You are reconnecting back to nature and also to one another by using the Earth Dollar. The greatest illusion is the illusion of separation. The Earth Dollar breaks the illusion of separation by reconnecting people back to nature. We all breathe the same air and drink the same water, so we are all connected, but scientists are also finding out that we are connected to one another on a quantum level as well.

The prosperity of people using the Earth Dollar is tied to the health of our planet via the Earth Index, which monitors the health of our living biosphere. War, destruction of the environment, clear cutting of trees, climate injustice, and other negative human behavior will cause the value of the Earth Dollar to go down in value. The opposite is true; the Earth Dollar will keep on going up in value, bringing sustainable prosperity to everyone on Earth, when the environment is clean, the forests are thriving, there is peace, people are healthy, community is strong, and people treat our home (planet Earth) with respect. The Earth Index is programmed into the DNA of the currency to control the value and flow of the Earth Dollar.

Since the Earth Dollar is cooperative in nature, just by people using the Earth Dollar they will be reconnecting back to nature and to one another. Welcome home!

3. Preserves life

You will be preserving and protecting the sacredness of life by simply using the Earth Dollar.
The Earth Dollar preserves life in many ways, including human life, wildlife, trees, plants, fauna, and ocean life. We believe that life is sacred and the preservation of life is the duty of each one of us.

The sanctity of human life is not due to the fact that we are such wonderful and good beings. The only reason the sanctity of life applies is because we are created in the image of our Creator, therefore human life should always be treated with dignity and respect. The sanctity of life should motivate us to combat all forms of evil and injustice that are perpetuated against human life. Violence, abuse, oppression, human trafficking, and many other evils are also violations of the sanctity of life. While the sanctity of life can be the foundation, love must be the motivation.

We also believe that all beings on the Earth have the right to live in peace and harmony. so that is why we have adopted The Universal Declaration of the Rights of Mother Earth.

4. Protects forests. wildlife, fauna, and ecosystems

By using the Earth Dollar, you are protecting and creating more World Heritage Sanctuaries; within our sanctuaries we are protecting the forests from being clear cut, protecting the animals, the critters, the fauna and the ecosystems that gives us life. If there are no more forests, how will oxygen be generated?

Forests are essential to the health of our environment. For example, trees and forests absorb and store much of the carbon dioxide that otherwise would be contributing to climate injustice. Forests are home to about 80 percent of remaining terrestrial biodiversity. Forests also regulate water cycles, maintain soil quality, and reduce the risks of natural disasters such as floods.

Many of these services are undervalued although they are key to the resilience and green growth of local, national and global economies. Increasing finance for forest conservation and protection is a priority – particularly at a time when natural systems are coming under demographic, economic and climatic pressure. Although the pace of deforestation has slowed in some regions, the world still loses about 14.5 million hectares of forests each year. Worldwide, an estimated 2 billion hectares of lost or degraded forest landscapes could be restored and rehabilitated, returning landscapes and communities to their healthy productive potential.

Help us protect the forests for future generations by using the Earth Dollar!

5. Ensures cleaner water

By using the Earth Dollar, you are protecting our watersheds, lakes and rivers from being polluted. We are 70% water and if our water becomes polluted then our bodies become polluted as well. We believe fresh water is a right and everyone on Earth should have access to clean and safe drinking water. By using the Earth Dollar on a long term basis, you can save millions of lives by providing clean water to billions of people. We can do it together!

Protecting the sources of clean water is a collective responsibility and using the Earth Dollar is your commitment to valuing the importance of fresh water. Freshwater is the lifeblood of Earth. Protecting and conserving freshwater is a major political challenge for the 21st century. Humanity continues to put a heavy strain on water infrastructures and drain our valuable freshwater reserves.

Sustainable communities and sustainable livelihoods need healthy watersheds. We are committed to responsible water stewardship. That includes protecting watersheds from industrial and urban activities and restoring those that have been damaged by such activities. We advocate responsible water management, focused on strong regulations and programs created in collaboration with all parties involved. When it comes to our vision for freshwater; our message is clear: Keep it. Conserve it. Protect it.

  • Keep it. We keep fresh water sources from being polluted and damaged.
  • Conserve it. We work to ensure sustainable use of our water resources and at the same time maintain and improve access to safe water within our management. We foster efficient use, and regulations that protect and enhance water quality and ensure that our environment does not become a haven for water-wasting industries.
  • Protect it. We protect and restore freshwater ecosystems and their ecological services (e.g. as habitats for fish and freshwater species, as domestic water supplies for energy-generation and recreation, as sources of water for irrigation and other economic uses). This is especially important when considering the changes in quality and quantity of the world’s freshwater that will occur due to climate injustice.

6. Protects the oceans

By using the Earth Dollar, you are protecting the oceans and the creatures that live in the oceans. We intend to create World Heritage Ocean Sanctuaries in the oceans to protect sensitive areas like coral reefs from imminent destruction. The oceans contains Earth’s largest life support systems. To survive and prosper, we all need healthy oceans. Oceans generate half of the oxygen people breathe. At any given moment, more than 97% of the world’s water resides in oceans.

Oceans provide a sixth of the animal protein people eat. They’re the most promising source of new medicines to combat cancer, pain and bacterial diseases. Living oceans absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and reduce the impact of climate injustice. The diversity and productivity of the world’s oceans is a vital interest for humankind. Our security, our economy, our very survival all require healthy oceans. Whether you live on the coast or far from it, whether you eat seafood or not, you and the future of all those you love depends on healthy oceans.

By simply using the Earth Dollar, you will ensure healthier oceans.

7. Minimizes pollution

Using the Earth Dollar minimizes pollution of the air, the water and the environment. We encourage education about Sustainability, reducing, reusing and recycling products. We further advocate the protection of the Natural Capital in our World Heritage Sanctuaries.

Pollution can be toxic and harmful to our bodies, which can lead to disease such as cancer. Stopping pollution grows more important with each passing day. The air we breathe is laden with hazardous contaminants, and our oceans and waterways have been poisoned with chemicals. Left unabated, pollution could leave us with a planet Earth sapped of its beauty, vitality, and diversity.

8. Brings true prosperity

The Earth Dollar frees up unused, undervalued and untapped assets, including Natural Capital to create a more prosperous future for humanity. We envision using the Earth Dollar to eliminate hunger and to save millions of lives.

The Earth Dollar can pump trillions of dollars into the sustainable economy to fund the development of sustainable projects, sustainable jobs, sustainable homes; one of our pet peeves is to see the installation of millions of solar panels on homes and the wide use of electric cars.

We believe that true prosperity is happiness, good health, clean water, clean air, healthy environment, lush forests, thriving wildlife, caring communities, world peace, inner peace, respect for all cultures, true justice, and a better future for all beings on our planet.

The value of the Earth Dollar is tied to the health of our planet via the Earth Index, which monitors the health of our living biosphere. War, destruction of the environment, clear cutting of trees, climate injustice, and other negative human behavior will cause the value of the Earth Dollar to go down in value. The opposite is true; the Earth Dollar will keep on going up in value, bringing sustainable prosperity to everyone on Earth, when the environment is clean, the forests are thriving, there is peace, people are healthy, community is strong, and people treat our home (planet Earth) with respect. The Earth Index is programmed into the DNA of the currency to control the value and flow of the Earth Dollar.

9. Brings better health

By using the Earth Dollar, it minimizes pollution of the air, the water and the environment, so it will bring better health to people in general. Currently babies are now born with over 200+ man-made toxins in their bodies; this should not be normal.

Here is what pollution can do, like for example health problems associated with air pollution include:

  • Damage to airways of the lungs
  • Increased risk of asthma development
  • Worsening of existing asthma or other lung conditions
  • Increased risk of heart attacks and strokes
  • Increased risk of death from lung cancer and cardiovascular disease

10. Encourages peace on Earth

The Earth Dollar is Peace by Nature. The Earth Dollar naturally encourages people to work together to protect Mother Earth in order to increase their own wealth. Wealth by our definition means both wellness and prosperity.

Yes, peace means no war. We all understand no war. However, there is more to peace then no war. What is peace?

Climate injustice is a war against our planet. The people of the earth can stop this war against our planet. Hunger and poverty is a war against humanity. We can stop this war against humanity. Over-fishing and polluting the oceans is a war against nature. We can stop this war against nature. Destruction of the environment, the forests, the waters, and the animals is a war on Mother Earth. We can stop this war against Mother Earth. Our inhumanity towards our brothers and sisters is a war against our family. We can stop this war against our families. The displacement of indigenous peoples from their homes for corporate profit is a war on our brothers and sisters. We can stop this war against our families. Greed is a disease and a war against ourselves. We can stop this war against ourselves.

The benefits of peace means less stress. Stress in the collective consciousness not only fuels terrorism and war. It also breeds crime, economic instability, and governmental incoherence. By reducing social stress, large groups of peace-creating experts have been shown to profoundly benefit society in each of these areas. Peace means both inner peace and outer peace. Peace begins with us.

11. Low transaction and transfer fees

Since the Earth Dollar functions like bitcoin and other crypto-currencies, it offers zero to low transaction fees to transfer money from one person to another.

12. Increases investments in sustainable businesses and sustainable living

You are helping to fund and grow sustainable businesses and sustainable living by using the Earth Dollar. We intend to use the Earth Dollar reserve to fund and grow sustainable businesses; furthermore we plan to fund sustainable living, like allowing more ordinary people to have affordable and sustainable homes around the world.

13. Fosters cooperation

You are fostering cooperation among people by using the Earth Dollar, instead of hyper-competitions. Due to the nature of the Earth Dollar, people are placed in the same boat to help save our planet. In Africa they call it Ubuntu.

Ubuntu (roughly translating to “human kindness)” It is an idea from the Southern African region which means literally “human-ness,” and is often translated as “humanity towards others,” but is often used in a more philosophical sense to mean “the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity”. People, animals and ecosystems teach us about a more interconnected world. “[Nelson] Mandela said often that the gift of prison was the ability to go within and to think, to create within himself the things he most wanted for South Africa: peace, reconciliation, harmony. Through this act of intense open-heartedness, he was to become the embodiment of what in South Africa we call Ubuntu. ‘I am; because of you.'”

14. Increased volume of currency in a local area and around the world

The volume of conventional money in a local area and around the world is scarce, evidenced by the millions of people starving to death every year and the shortage of money to create a sustainable world. The Earth Dollar increases the volume of money worldwide to mobilize these resources. By tying the Earth Dollar to the conventional currency when making a purchase, it can be assumed (and in some cases measured) that the velocity of money in circulation is increased.

15. Increased liquidity of money in a local area and around the world

The Earth Dollar runs parallel to existing currencies to bring climate justice. The Earth Dollar creates more wealth for those in the community by funding and fostering sustainable jobs and projects. Whereas the national currency drains out of the economy when it is spent at a non-locally owned sustainable business, or on goods that are sourced from outside of the community, the Earth Dollar remain where they are – supporting sustainable businesses, increasing the liquidity of money. The effect of the Earth Dollar is that it keeps money within a specific area longer, namely supporting sustainable businesses, is called a “multiplier effect”.

16. Increased access to the local and global market

By creating a new free market for the exchange of goods and services, participants in the Earth Dollar have a new and stable market for the goods and services that they offer.

17. Increased possibility of local import substitution

By encouraging sustainable locally-generated business, goods and services that were formerly sourced from outside the locality may be substituted by goods produced from within the locality.

18. Increased employment opportunities

By providing a new market for goods and services, the participants in the Earth Dollar system offer what they want, rather than being forced to perform work that they would prefer not to do if they had the choice. The Earth Dollar discourages harmful activities simply for money, the Earth Dollar gives their participants a safe way of trying out their new employment choices.

19. Increased importance of traditionally undervalued activities

The Earth Dollar gives community members themselves the chance to decide the value of such things as childcare, artisan skills or community organizing. In particular, this gives them the opportunity to reassess the value of women’s work, either undervalued or unvalued in the larger market economy.

20. Discouragement of environmentally destructive activities

The Earth Dollar discourages environmentally destructive activities, by letting people understand that there is value in a living tree, value in fresh water, value in thriving wildlife, value a healthy ocean, and value in people living on the land.

 

Without the payment of interest to encourage environmentally destructive activities for its monetary value, there is no incentive to cut down a tree today in order to begin accumulating interest from its sale. We intend to implement a zero interest rate system, future units of the Earth Dollar are worth more than those exchanged today. This encourages activities which will facilitate future exchanges, such as planting trees.

 

21. Increased support for small sustainable enterprise development

With the Earth Dollar, rather than relying solely on a high interest commercial loan, entrepreneurs are able to procure at least part of the goods and services they need for startup simply by making a commitment to supplying the fruits of their labour to the community sometime in the future.

22. Increased strengthening of social relationships

The Earth Dollar is designed and intended to help the members of a society to overcome social inequities based on wealth. An intricate social network is reinforced/created as a by-product of members meeting to exchange goods and services. In an indirect way, it may be exactly these types of social benefits which determine the economic success over the long run. An example of a success story include lending circle program which results in community cohesion.

23. Counter-cyclical economic tendency like recessions and depressions

The Earth Dollar counters recessions and depressions by bringing in more resiliency into the economic system.. According to Professor James Stodder, who did a study of business intertrading systems in America, and found that alternative currencies exhibited a tendency to increase during economic downturns, which he concludes by supporting the introduction of alternative currencies such as the Earth Dollar in areas hit by economic recessions, we can bounce back from economic downturns faster.

24. Money stays in the sustainable local business longer, reducing need for external input

With the use of the Earth Dollar, the less money that is flowing out of the sustainable local community, the less that needs to flow back in.

25. Multiplier effect from increased circulation

With the Earth Dollar in circulation, more money stays in a sustainable community, the greater the spin off benefits from the circulation. Economists call this a “multiplier effect”.

26. Increased personal savings and wealth of individuals

The Earth Dollar increases local capitalization and personal savings, or disposable income.

27. Reduced need to migrant to urban areas in a search for money

The Earth Dollar provides enough income to mobilize sustainable local production using sustainable local resources to meet local needs, people do not need to leave the village for the city in order to earn money.

28. Fostering self-reliance and individual self-esteem

The Earth Dollar by meeting local sustainable needs using local sustainable resources, people are active in helping each other. Many people structure their time and value their life through their work, leading to happiness and increased self-esteem.

29. Decreased gap between the richest and poorest members of a community

The Earth Dollar provides lower-income people in a community with access to a local means of exchange, and possibly increased access to capital. This means the gap between the richest and poorest members of a community decreases.

30. Access to credit at very low rates

The Earth Dollar lowers the barriers to accessing credit means. This means more opportunities for people.

31. Reduction in fees & interest becomes profit

The Earth Dollar saves money by not paying interest. As a result, this becomes an addition to people’s income and their profit. This cycles back into the community and everyone benefits.

32. Increased purchasing power at the local and global level

The Earth Dollar increases money supply, which means increased purchasing power at the local and global levels for people and organizations.
