is the founder of The Right Livelihood Award, also known as the "Alternative Nobel Prize". Four winners will share 1.5 million Swedish crowns, which James pays from his own pocket. The prize is usually awarded to people who are considered somehow work practically for the earth and its inhabitants best interest. A board of five people, and representatives from every continent appoints four award winners from the usually about 70-100 received nominations. One of this year's winners is whistle-blower Eric Snowden, which is particularly gratifying, because he is hit hard by the consequences of his actions. See above! Erik Snowden is well worth both appreciation and recognition for his bravery! Right Livelihood Award Foundation and Jakob von Uexkull are heroes that make the earth a little bättre.
