Posted to the “Wall of Disruption” at the 2014 Badger Bioneers Conference by Carl Whiting.

“We are the stories we tell ourselves and others about who we are, and our attempts to live up to those stories”


Well, it’s long-past time to tell another new story: A story that tells us – if we are going to fix this planet, right this climate, it will be in the course of this life time that this must happen. Too often, this is presented as a burden: “look what we’re stuck with”.


But there is another way to put this challenge: This generation has been given the opportunity to give the greatest gift any generation could possibly give the next: the simple right to live a meaningful life on a healing planet. In the entire history of humanity, this is the first time we are faced with such a burden, such an opportunity.


Will we look back in sorrow at what might have been? Or will we celebrate the gift we have worked so hard to give? Will we smile at our power to turn this ship around?


Tell a new story: a story of hope. A story of life.
