Is there anyone else that would like to see Environomics in the English Ditionary?

I'm sure that if and when the word is established in everyday usage, the OED will be happy to include it (whatever it means).

Would you think the world would be a better place if Environomics was in the Engish Dictionary?

I do.

Well, it would be a better-defined place if the word happened to be in everyday usage and the OED recorded it. Then again, if it wasn't in everyday usage, and the OED didn't record it, then that's cool too. smiley - cool

Not sure what you're getting at though? Is there a reason you favour this particular term? (whatever it means)

Hey, I just looked it up for you - the nearest term is Environometrics:

International Environmetrics Society, The (TIES):

A society formed for the purpose of promoting statistical and other quantitative methods in the environmental sciences. It publishes the journal Environmetrics. http:/www.nrcse.washington.edu/TIES/index.html

This was from the Oxford Dictionary of Statistics.

No Enviromonics, though, so I suggest you use Environometrics instead.

smiley - cheers Icy

Why stop at the Garden of Eden? Why not take it back to when Dinosaurs roamed the Earth? (was this before or after Eden - I'm not sure)

Well, I'm sure it was, but the whole Earth wasn't like that, was it? Eden was a garden which the Lord God planted somewhere in the East. Who's to say what it was like outside?
