A Marvelous Set of Possibilities
The day to day news has been increasingly alarming recently. But from time to time we get some wonderful and hopeful perspectives pointing toward a truly important and positive way forward.
Such is the case with the publication of The Great Pivot by Justine Burt.
Available now on Amazon.
There is growing agreement that climate change offers not just challenge but peril. And along comes this book which presents us with ways forward. And it is not just what we might do but it details how we can respond in a very constructive way.
The Great Pivot is remarkably detailed and I recommend it. It is not a dreamy Saturday morning read but very rewarding as it offers us details about how to proceed toward green solutions. The book is of special interest to policymakers and job creators but is also of interest to all of us.
The author is my daughter, but I’m focusing on it in this newsletter because of the import of the book. As part of my work as a psychologist I spent many years evaluating people for vocational rehabilitation. There is great good news. High tech green jobs can be done by the very people who are presently being displaced. I won’t go into all the details but, for example, as jobs in coal decline, the very people displaced can actually move on to new technology in the green economy.
A Brighter Future Than Many Believe
I’ll stop there. The book is fascinating and points to a bright future, not in an overheated planet but of technological wonder and promise of a productive future even for the people who are presently seeing their future darken. Take a look and let it brighten your day.
