We’ve all seen the images of huge ice­bergs break­ing off the Antarc­tic ice sheets into the ocean. It’s not just polar bears and pen­guins who are in dan­ger of los­ing their habi­tat. Our pale blue dot” in the uni­verse as Carl Sagan described Earth, is in per­il. The top sci­en­tists of the UN Inter­gov­ern­men­tal Pan­el on Cli­mate Change say we have only until 2030 to avoid cat­a­stroph­ic envi­ron­men­tal break­down.” Young peo­ple see their future fraught with risk.

They are demand­ing rad­i­cal change in busi­ness as usual.
