I am a self-employed organizer and author who works to develop a positive vision of a sustainable future, and to translate that vision into action. I am founder of the BC Sustainable Energy Association, co-founder of the Victoria Car-Share Cooperative, President of the Yellow Point Ecological Society, and co-founder and Interim Coordinator of the West Coast Climate Action Network. I am the author or co-author of ten books, including The Climate Challenge: 101 Solutions to Global Warming and Journey to the Future: A Better World is Possible. I am currently completing my 11th book, The Economics of Kindness: A Ten-Year Transition to a Green Cooperative Economy.
I believe that the 2020s are the most critical decade in the history of our civilization. I am a climate alarmist, but not a doomer: I share the view of Paul Hawken that if we put our minds to it, we can end the climate crisis within one generation. If we all work together, we can exert an incredible influence.
