I write here about the environment
from time to time, for I think there is a significant likelihood that we will face important transitions in our lifetimes or the lifetimes of our offspring that will impact us in multiple ways: personally, in the way we live, and professionally, in the way we produce what we need to live and earn what we need to acquire those things we need to live. (If TIME
is right, we may not have to wait that long for those transitions.)
Presentation Zen posted You can learn a lot from "a child"
, a speech by Severn Cullis-Suzuki
at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio De Janeiro. It touched on the big issues I perceive we face: figuring out how to make life sustainable on this planet, and figuring out how to live together. Watch it.
I also write about presentation
skills from time to time. As Presentation Zen reports, Al Gore called this "the best speech at Rio."
