“What to do” is a question I’ve tried to answer before. A Google search for “what to do”turns up 75 places on my web site where I use the phrase. I like my May 29 post in response to “What’s one thing everyone could do to slow climate change?” for example. It hits the nail on the head, ranging from advanced systems science to the every day practical necessities.
The more general message I keep telling people, though, is to become explorers of the real world that will be grading our exams… That likens our circumstance to not having paid attention in class, and finding a couple hundred years of back homework suddenly coming due.
