    TRANSCRIPT:

    Speak up. Not only you, but you and your friends and simply use one word, and say: Don't. You create groups and the groups will create more groups. Write letters to each other. Publish articles whenever you can. Say don't, don't do it to us. Don't play with our future. Go further: Don't betray our future. If you are enough in numbers, believe me, it can help. It surely will.

    Promoting thoughtful discussion I think is really important.  Making choices that you can stand by is really important. It may not change the status quo but if you have adopted a lifestyle that you personally can live with when it comes to things like energy consumption, or pollution, or how often you drive, or fly, it’s going to make a difference in how you feel about things and how you think about things.  And, because of the power of social media, people can communicate those types of choices, and aggregate them, and feel that they’re not alone.  These are things that you have an opportunity to do every day and so, why not?
