“There's always a story. It's all stories, really.

The sun coming up every day is a story.

Everything's got a story in it.

Change the story,

change the world.

"I used to think that top global environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that with 30 years of good science we could address these problems. I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed, and apathy, and to deal with these we need a spiritual and cultural transformation."
