[important]From the CVGSS Newsletter, February 2008[/important]
The good news is that we can focus on the good news. The knowledge of how to grow sustainably already exists. It can be tapped into and enhanced in myriad ways. Around the world people are feeling and thinking that it is time to create the world we want rather than to fight the world we don’t want. We all, each and every one of us, have bought into the destruction of the earth that has resulted in global climate change. We can stop buying into it.
