If I could rip open my heart and show you what's inside, this is what you would realize.
I have something to tell you all and you need to listen. I'm old and tired but still have a long way to go. I spent the first fourty years of my life
learning. Now I'm ready to tell my story. And the story is not unique and original. I am only at the center of it because I can see everything and
it's all around me. I understand the grand scale and can see how the future is really no different than the past. So if you can listen, then I can
tell you a story and that story will explain almost everything else that connects you to it all. And connects you to me.
I have come to a deep understanding. Nothing is truly mysterious to me anymore. But that doesn't mean it's not awesome. And I can't put it all in my
head all at once. It's about looking around and putting what you see into it's proper perspective.
My job is to write and reflect the truth that I find in the world and tell you what it means. That is all I can do. Think of this space as the tall
mountain where I sit. I have found many answers and love to share. All you have to do is ask.
So your job is to listen to the story. And then tell that story to someone. Bring them to me when they want to know more. I cannot force anyone to
listen. But I must speak to you all. Because it concerns you all. It concerns the whole planet.
Here's the simple answer. Our pursuit of fossil fuels will be our undoing.
Let me count the ways.
Do not expect a world where temperatures rise ever higher along with the oceans. It will not be a water world. It will be an ice age.
It's all about time.
It's acceleration. Civilization is racing. And it's out of pace.
