An ounce of hope

On Thursday, I attended a talk from George Monbiot, given at Ways With Words, Dartington Hall. I enjoyed it immensely, which isn't surprising. I've been a fan of Monbiot's pet philosophy, "Rewilding", since before my age held double digits (before I, or indeed Monbiot, had even heard the term).

Still, his talk not only reinforced my love for rewilding, but also introduced a new favourite ideal: that for environmentalism to succeed, it must promote a future that is more amazing than the present, not just the least worst-case scenario. Because, ultimately, hope outweighs despair as a rallying cry.

Also: charity.
