The future is not some place we are going, but one we are creating. The paths are not to be found, but made. And the activity of making them changes both the maker and their destination. – John Schaar
The preceding article in this series – How You Can Reverse Global Warming – shows how millions of years of evolution have hard-wired your brain:
- to ask right questions
- to make decisions based on pre-existing answers revealed by those right questions, and
- to take swift action on those decisions by engaging people in conversations and inviting them to consider asking themselves those right questions
It shows how you have the power to activate the right-question-asking, consensus-decision-making and successful-solution-imitating powers – of the people with whom you are in conversation – to reverse global warming.

If you follow what I’ve laid out in You Can Reverse Global Warming, you will succeed in reversing global warming.
The next step is up to you.
Here are the choices:
Which future do you want for the world’s children? It’s your decision.
Your decision is the spark that ignites action. Decide for yourself what kind of planet you want for the world’s children. Decide today that you will ask a question, make a decision, start a conversation, to reverse global warming.
I could have coasted, making money as a tax lawyer on Wall Street, or a patent litigator in Silicon Valley. Somehow, I got guided first to superconductors, then to renewable energy, then to Hawaii to learn what I needed to learn – how to ask the right questions to reverse global warming.
I wrote You Can Reverse Global Warming to show how anyone can ask the right questions to reverse global warming. I wrote You Can Reverse Global Warming to show how you can change the destination, to show how you can create the future that you want for the world’s children.
You have something valuable to share – a question to ask, a decision to make, a conversation to start. Ask that question, make that decision, start that conversation, and make a lasting difference in the world.
It’s your decision.

Ready for a deeper understanding of how to reverse global warming?
My new book, You Can Reverse Global Warming,
- frames global warming as a decision-making problem
- shows a decision-making process for swiftly achieving 100% renewable energy and reversing global warming
- shows a “right-question-asking” process for persuading decision-makers how to shift to the “unlimited upside” shown in Figure 1, and making them think it was their own idea.
Got questions about how you can swiftly achieve 100% renewable energy? About how you can reverse global warming? If you do, I hope that you will send me a message at email@example.com.

An earlier article in this series – How to Evaluate Benefits Delivered by an Energy Option — showed that a second step in a decision-making process for achieving 100% renewable energy might look decision-makers evaluating benefits of energy options available for adoption.
In the next article in this Reversing Global Warming series, I’m going to show you a first-ever method for evaluating the performance benefits of energy options.
Thank you for reading this article. I’m grateful for your comments.
