Comment on Busy doing nothing – seven reasons for humanity’s inertia in the face of critical threats and how we might remove them by Floro

My apologies Brian. My criticism was clearly aimed at Mark’s “Reason for Inertia 6: Our brains are maladapted to modern life”, and, due to my haste, I made the mistake of putting your name. I quite agree with your reply. May I also add that I’ve just read your “Changing the Lifestyle Package” at and I found it enlightening and inspiring. Thanks for including a link to Paul Hawken’s “Blessed Unrest”–the best commencement address I’ve read so far. Keep up the good work!
