Stark Reminder

We should mostly be aware of the importance of the time we exist in, and how the next few years ahead of us are critical in dealing with  the various economic and environmental threats we face.  It is however important to remind ourselves of the nature of these threats.  This is a very well elaborated talk from Jeremy Rifkin.  Don’t let his slightly annoying delivery get in the way of the importance of what his is discussing. Quite inspirational.
