One day I want to be as composed and moderate as Post Carbon Institute Fellow Bill Rees who appears in the video below.

Now this opportunity is not without an equal amount of risk. We can also lose it all, if allow our lower instincts, fears and addictions  take us through the wrong path or keep us long enough in the current collision path.
