090: Obesity and the Environment
How we treat our bodies is how we are treating our environment.
How we treat the environment is how we are treating our bodies.
The fat and CO2 concentrations aren’t the cause of the problem. The are the effects.
The cause is our behavior. Our behavior is rooted in our beliefs, emotions, and behaviors.
If we want to change the effects, we have to change the causes, which is our behavior and changing behavior is the realm of leadership.
Our environmental and obesity-related behaviors, beliefs, emotions, and motivations are more similar than different, they come from similar cultural trends, they have documented problems of disease and death no matter how people change standards to accept them, there’s just no changing standards on suffering and death, and the way out is through leadership.
