“People want to act, but it’s hard,” my business friend said to me, speaking on the environment. I said it to myself for most of my life before learning that acting on the environment, however hard, was fun. Raising a child is hard too, but people do it.

This time we happened to be speaking over video and recording it. I’m posting what I happened to say extemporaneously. I wouldn’t describe it as a rant, but sort of close. I talked about slavery, abolition, learning, doing hard things, and more.

I said what I wish someone had said to me twenty years ago. I would have acted earlier. It also shares how someone who has acted more sustainably for more than a few years thinks.
