Is your house on fire? I agree with Greta Thunberg when she said,
"I want you to act as if your house is on fire, because it is."
Climate change is just one issue. How are we going to overcome all the epic challenges when it looks like everything is on fire!
James “Gus” Speth - Author of 7 books and a champion of fundamental systemic change with The Next System Project offers some insights,
“I used to think that top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that thirty years of good science could address these problems. I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy, and to deal with these we need a cultural and spiritual transformation. And we scientists don’t know how to do that.”
I believe complicated problems do not require complicated solutions.
Every problem holds the answer to its solution.
Within scientific circles, high carbon dioxide levels are accepted as significantly contributing to climate change. While scientist struggle to develop carbon capture technology, a perfect technology already exists, it is called a TREE.
Planting a tree is a simple solution you can do today to improve our environment. The Nature Conservancy's Plant a Billion Trees campaign is one coordinated effort toward a global goal of planting a Trillion Trees.
