Welcome Ian Chambers... (summary) Ian motivated us with highlights of his 'plan' & book. He postulated that while the global village is in a "really big mess" we are still just barely doing 'catch-up. Big business has still not found solutions as there is no coordinated plan. From his research, Ian identified several core actions necessary to reverse these negative trends. Key among these were addressing world population growth and the destruction of many global resources. He recommended embracing current elite technology as evidenced by the amazing turnaround of 'Apple' (from near bankrupt to mega corporation in 12 years) and using existing technology to engage people through clever and viral methods to get the good message out there. Ian's book offers an exhilarating read for a way forward, filled with facts, figures and ideas for a truly better Planet.
