I am back from my trip to Washington, DC and New York with lots of follow-up work – more on that in the coming days!
For now I just want to share a quote from a Commencement Address Paul Hawken gave earlier this year. The quote speaks for itself:
At present we are stealing the future, selling it in the present, and calling it gross domestic product. We can just as easily have an economy that is based on healing the future instead of stealing it. We can either create assets for the future or take the assets of the future. One is called restoration and the other exploitation. And whenever we exploit the earth we exploit people and cause untold suffering. Working for the earth is not a way to get rich, it is a way to be rich.
