Hi Daniel

I read the preview to your book " How Soon is Now" with interest.

My question is do you outline a practical, realistic, step by step plan for change other than lets all 'drop out' and do drugs ? If so, please could you elaborate a little perhaps to encourage me to purchase the whole book.

You seem extremely well connected with the wealthy elite "movers and shakers". You seem happy to travel globally, sometimes in private jets , rockstars helicopters, fancy weddings etc
(But sometimes you ride your bicycle, LOL!)
What are these people doing to curb their ecological impact? How do they react to your self described , manic messiah like rants. Do they just pay lip service to it all, in order to seem trendy and "cool" and "with it" and soothe their consciences ?

I would be interested in your reply to the post by Alexander4450? Do you agree with him?


My answer to your question , is it is way too late. Selfishness and greed is unfortunately part of human nature. The planet will fight back with reaction, and will win, and it will eventually recover differently with or without human beings. If any survive, they will be few and THEN they might have a chance to wake up to the mistakes for a while, until selfishness and greed takes over again.

Cheers
Steve
