Paul Hawken: We Are Not Alone!Posted: August 13, 2011
In his book Blessed Unrest, Paul Hawken has some sobering words for us. Right in the introduction, he says, “If you look at the science that describes what is happening on earth today and aren’t pessimistic, you don’t have the correct data.” However, he also says that if you are not hopeful because ofthe millions of organizations and people working to create an ecologically sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, and socially just human presence on this planet, you also don’t have the correct data. This is very important indeed. Quakers in Transition, and those involved in many other efforts, are part of this global movement of movements that has no single name. Welcome to the Earth’s immune response to a corrupt way of life! You are a healthy cell.
