What is your biggest concern re. climate change?
The possibility that we have reached irreversible states of change that will be incompatible with our species continued existence.
What is your biggest inspiration re. climate change?
The fact that my 17 year old daughter chose to write her senior thesis on the topic of "A History of Plastic" and her decision to stop eating meat, reuse and recycle more, and the hope that this generation may be active in their response to global issues.
What do you think you can do to help prevent / minimise climate change?
Reduce my own footprint and awaken understanding in others through writing and encouraging community building. I also think the work of the Asheville Jung Center helps people recover their negative projections upon the world around them.
