Ehhhh. Wrong answer.
I've long felt that the problems are deeper than that. That we need to hold up a mirror to ourselves and scrutinize what we find: our culture, our economic systems. I was pleased to discover a film last night at the DC Environmental Film Festival that so succinctly captures this idea, Surviving Progress:
The filmmakers don't offer a prescription, but they do suggest a theoretical way out. Nature is running the human experiment, they say, and it's looking like it might not work out. The problem is that we're running high-tech (and technology obsessed) software on hardware - the brain - that's over 50,000 years old. To make the jump, we have to tap into some collective, innate moral potential. It's a long shot, but wouldn't it be transcendent if we managed to make that leap?
