July 29: money hugger
Opposite of tree hugger. Unscrupulous, money hungry, money collecting individual or company willing to do anything and destroy anything on this planet to get their fix - more money.
I don't care about your environmental impact or the old tree growth, and that frog is not worth those millions I can make here, said the money hugger.
The importance of this post should be clear: An environmental economist is somewhere in between a tree hugger and a money hugger. Indeed, I'd love to test the assertion about the value of the frog.
