“You really have to start with yourself and then whether or not you reach out to others really depends on whether or not you’re the right person to do it. Some people are really good at arguing, and that doesn’t really change peoples opinions. But if you can get into their hearts, that’s what’s so important. Make people think about this question: if we’re the most intellectual animals that have ever walked on this planet, which we are, why are we destroying our only home? I think we’ve lost wisdom, the kind of wisdom where people say, ‘How will this decision affect people generations ahead?’ Now we make decisions based on, ‘How will it help me now or in next year’s shareholders meeting or next year’s political campaign?’”
