2. Ideas on how to solve our probs can come from anywhere...the problem for many
is the scope

Most are not prepared for the enormous scope....simplistic answers without a solid backup is the norm we no cigars...

Reduce the complexity with simplicity and the picture becomes clearer

Think NEW

Think BIG


Think Sustainable

Think Efficiency

Think Inclusive....

we can do it...we can think of ourselves by thinking of others...Empathy ius a key....

3. this is just.....
what I thought would happen...

Barack said over and over during his campaign...
I cannot do this alone...
I'm going to need all of you to stay involved and
help make the changes happen...

There is a meeting on my island...
and I plan to be there.
It will be interesting to see what's happening.
