Climate Change: Don’t Despair

I’ve written before on the issue of despair in the face of often daunting problems facing people and our planet.

In that prior post, I encouraged taking a time out from mainstream media in order to go in search of positive news at outlets like GreenBiz, Inhabitat, Ode Magazine, Yes Magazine, a recommendation I renew here.

However, I came across a video today that offers an additional approach. In this dialogue between two of my heroes — scientist/environmentalist David Suzuki and Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh — the suggestion is made that, by practicing awareness of impermanence combined with meditation, it is possible to not only avoid despair, but to actually become a much more powerful activist.
