Time for Action

posted on 3rd of april, 2009

In line with this month's assignment, I want to share something with you that I hope will inspire you to slow down a bit and consider where are we all heading to in our rush for money, money and more money.

We, as the dominant species that runs the planetary show seem to have totally lost touch with the reality. What are we leaving behind for our children and grandchildren?

Three months ago, I started reading a book that got me really worried. The title is Plan B 3.0 Mobilizing to Save Civilization by Lester R. Brow, the President of the Earth Policy Institute. Mr. Brown is an accomplished scientist and author that does not need an introduction. Just ask your “friend“ Google about him and you will have more information than you can handle.

I strongly urge you to read the book.
You can print it for free from: here
If that sounds a bit too much for your hectic life, take just a few minutes to look at the slide show that summarizes the book. Too bad that the pictures are from another agency, but that is really unimportant. Here is the slide show.
If you are a teacher, use the slide show to teach your children what’s waiting for them, maybe they will succeed in mobilizing their parents to spring into action. Send the link to the politicians that represent you and are responsible for the decisions that will affect us in the decades to come.

It is still not too late, but we seem to be much too close to the point of no return.
Feel free to comment on what is your contribution in this race against time.
