Well said Michael. I agree that because we have borders, that is where diplomacy and a truly wise world view will come in. My deep hope is that at some point enough leaders will collaborate. ( okay Paris,we did pull out, but I will hold my tongue on that for now) if you invest in reading any of the superb books by the terrific Dr. Carl Safina, those will give you a good idea of what we’re up against when it comes to conservation, pop growth, the gross overuse of resources and lack of foresight. I think most of have no clue how fast time eludes us until we hit a certain age, or point of awareness, when time suddenly becomes something we no longer have enough of, and that is so true in so many contexts. Thanks for your thoughts.
