Episode 49: When everything seems hopeless, what do we do?

“There’s no difference between a pessimist who says, ‘It’s all over, don’t bother trying to do anything, forget about voting, it won’t make a difference,’ and an optimist who says, ‘Relax, everything is going to turn out fine.’ Either way the results are the same. Nothing gets done.” ~ Yvon Chouinard


Whether it is climate change, or our houses are going into foreclosure, or we have just been dumped, or we have awful diseases or injuries—we have to face the facts, breathe deep, and move forward.

No matter how hopeless things are, we are going to wake up in the morning and do our best to save one little piece of this world.
