Climate: A New Story (2018)

In this video from Spring 2018 in New Zealand, Charles advocates for expanding our exclusive focus on carbon emissions to see the broader picture beyond our short-sighted and incomplete approach to mitigating climate change. The natural and the material world--the rivers, forests, and creatures--are sacred and valuable in their own right, not simply for carbon credits or preventing the extinction of one species versus another. Seeing the bigger picture of how everything from prison reform to saving the whales can contribute to our planetary ecological health, we resist reflexive postures of solution and blame and reach toward the deep place where commitment lives.
