    About two thirds of the way through I too felt "There is no hope."  And then he gave me a map and a reason to move forward.  I am starting by sending this to everyone I know and encouraging them to watch this video.
    Global climate change has been my number one issue, but now it is number two.

      breath down our necks (so to speak)...if we don't go after the root it keeps sending up new sprouts.   Money is the root of our government's evil.

      •  You are definitely correct (0+ / 0-)

        I think my despair comes from we are going to have to face the personification of "evil".  People who truly have no compassion, no care, only mindless greed, and people like that seem to have limitless energy and funds.  I hate sounding like some nut job using the word "evil", but I can't think of a better word.

        No matter what, you are right we have to fight this or we cannot move forward.

    •  Problem with being all concerned about (0+ / 0-)

      Global climate change is that the GC movement will be hijacked by Big Money also. Already there was one "study" released in Britain which showed these metal structures offered more carbon dioxide to oxygen production than anything else - the implication being, let's cut down the trees for this company to install these devices!

      Offer your heart some Joy every day of your life, and spread it along to others.
