Our world will change

Brave new world

As the world enters a whole new phase of addressing climate change and biodiversity loss, a lot is at stake. That is, everything is at stake.

The changes we are experiencing, and how we as a planetary people respond to them, affect every living organism on the planet.

Never in history of human consciousness has this been more the case. Yes, Earth has weathered extinctions before, but none influenced so very much by our actions or inactions.

I am hopeful, but also afraid of the outcome. I invite all Earthlings to see what a difference we can make by demanding a clean, fair, and abundant planet.

Will we do it? I think we will both win, and lose.

In the long run, however, I think our uppity species will learn their lessons.

The lessons we learn will create a whole new world!
