Birdsyeye view of a beach in Papua New Guinea

About Being Future Focused

I was guiding a cargo ship through a narrow channel called the Buka Passage in Papua New Guinea in the 70s (but that’s a story that would take longer to tell). The passage is only about a couple hundred metres wide with a clear view of the shore on both sides, and both were littered with broken glass.

Response to Boven’s Book

I read Rick Boven’s new book The Soft Landing: Re-Imagining Civilisation’s Future while on a New Year’s break. Below where I was staying the sea looked beautiful and pristine – what a strange contrast to the destruction and disaster he warns that is looming to our environment.
