The Need to Think Crazily
"Every really new idea looks crazy at first.”
― Alfred North Whitehead
A Big Conference
I have two of the most beautiful, intelligent, and lovable great-grandchildren in the world. At 89 years of age, I know I won’t have the chance to see them much longer.
Plenary Speakers include:
Bill McKibben: Global Climate Change
Vandana Shiva: The Well-being of Women
Sheri Liao: Evolving China
