VISION IS THE MOTHER OF HOPE
If the Swedes can do it, so can we.
The Swedish people have collectively decided, through their government, to eliminate all major environmental problems within one generation – by 2020. They don’t want to hand them on to their children and grandchildren.
They have established 16 policy goals, and if you go to their website, they track the progress on each of the goals. They’re not doing very well, but at least they’re honest about it.
We live in a time of incredible opportunity. Never before in the history of humankind have we had so much access to knowledge, learning, information, and the skills that are needed to implement change.
At the same time, we live in a time of the most disastrous portents. Almost every week, a new science report warns of the direst consequences if we do not act very quickly to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.
