  • A reasonable society should be willing to undertake fairly significant precautions to avoid catastrophic events. Over the past few decades, however, social and cognitive psychologists studying human judgment and choice have learned that reasonable people sometimes fail to make reasonable choices.

  • Planet Earth is in serious trouble! The selfishness of some is the

    misery of others! The species of the Earth are many, but

    more and more become endangered

    every year!

    Climate change is a complex issue, and

    so is putting the message

    constructively forward!

    Climate change is catastrophic enough as it is, and deserve more attention and

    ACTION!

    We need to start living up to the WISE humans

    we named ourself to be!

    We need to shift from an EGO, to a

    more ECO, lifestyle!
