Our eloquent friend, Sir Ken Robinson at TED this February. I agree with his major points, especially that
1) the global warming is more than an external issue: it is an ‘internal’ issue, as well. Desire and consumption are at the root of global warming – not fossil fuels. This same spiritual sickness we suffer as our culture progresses also contributes to our willingness to squander our authentic lives away for a decent paycheck.
2) A key to global warming as well as authentic lives is a revolution in education. What will the new model be based upon? The answer is agriculture. Education needs to let organic forces natural to the human species thrive in rich environments – just as a farmer cultivates his crops and groves.
