the movie

His theory of change was that he'll write his book, people will read it and they'll change. But that's not how change happens. What is required is to make a little noise, be a little uncomfortable, and push other people to be a little uncomfortable. The time has come for us to take a clear stance against the burning of fossil fuels, because we are coming up against limits.
