If I could change one thing in the world, it would be:

Breed a new species of human that acted out of a sense of enlightened self-interest and understood the difference between short-term and long-term risks.

I think the most important environmental issue is:

There isn't a single most important issue, they're all related. We're at the end stage of the Rubik's Cube, and the final solution will involve several simultaneous moves. Reductionism is misguided.

The greenest thing I do is:

Commute by bicycle

What does "sustainability" mean to me:

There is no such thing.

Why am I passionate about being green?
