Gem of the day

There's a lot of great things going on in the world today. Al Gore's 24 Hours of Climate Reality project launches around the world, and it's the 40th anniversary of Greenpeace changing the world.

On that note, as probably the last global NGO that works with big business to force radical change and bears witness to the entrenched battles we're fighting, Greenpeace is one of our only real hopes for a sustainable world. From literally stopping the oil industry in its tracks to winning attention from those ever-elusive "consumers" on complex issues like toxics in the supply chain, to fighting for the oceans, the world is truly a better place because of Greenpeace.

I can't say the same thing for many other organisations working on sustainability.

Here's to 40 more years.
