One of the best TED talks around looks at why we need to be looking at reframing our thinking around climate change away from fear and into a more positive mindset. This talk uses many of the same ideas being talked about by Hazel Henderson in the 1990’s (see May 14, 2009 post below)

This is a summary of the talk as provided by a US newsreader

To see the actual TED talk and also the Robert Kennedy speech that was referred to in this talk go to the following link
Australia came in 102nd on the Happy Planet Index A very large ecological footprint – one of the worst of the 143 countries surveyed – is to blame for the poor result.
