John is a firm believer in Paul
Hawken’s assertion, "If you look at the science about what is happening on Earth, and aren'tpessimistic, you don't understand the data. But if you meet the people who are working torestore this Earth and the lives of the poor, and you aren't optimistic, you haven't got apulse."
