Here is an amazing video, by Paul Gilding of the Huffington Post, who speaks the truth loud and clear. The topic: overloading our planet in the race for technology, and how too much, can definitely be a bad thing. We’re confronted with a choice, and as he states in his video, if something is going to be done about it, then it’s up to us to make it happen.
Mr. Gilding is an independent writer, advisor and advocate for action on climate change and sustainability. An activist and social entrepreneur for 35 years, his personal mission and purpose is to lead, inspire and motivate action globally on the transition of society and the economy to sustainability. He pursues this purpose across all sectors, working around the world with people, businesses, NGOs, entrepreneurs, academia and government.
Below, Mr. Gilding comments on the topic of his video:
My message is a tough one for this audience — that sure technology will do wonderful things for us, but the reality is we are going to face some very difficult consequences of our overloading of planet earth, and its too late now to stop those consequences. I argue strongly that humans are amazingly capable and will recover from this inevitable crisis and indeed in the end build a stronger and happier society.
