Climate change is overwhelming and the news is always bad. Reading a book like EcoMind is a welcome relief as it re-frames problems and potential solutions.

Using the phrase "Thought-Trap", Lappe tackles assumptions such as "No Growth is the only solution" and "Human nature must be overcome" and the far too commonplace "It's too late! We're F*@#$*!".

She provides well researched data to show the above and other assumptions are false, and writes about recent examples of people, groups, and communities overcoming the hurdles to effect real changes that make a difference.

In fact, there are so many examples, one could easily pick out an idea that inspires them to support, local and regional, national and worldwide. Borrowed the book from the library but I may buy my own copy to refer back to and to keep a positive perspective on the challenges we can all address.
