How to get started with changing your world
Last week I introduced you to the idea of Storming the Castle but I’d be the first to admit not everyone wants to change their own world let alone change THE world and these posts aren’t for those people. Instead they are for that small minority of people who do want to create change, whether it’s in their own life or whether it’s for the benefit of others and incidentally, as you’ll begin to see, those two things are not mutually exclusive. Many others who have come before me will tell you that it is a lonely road when you are storming a castle and it can feel a bit like you’re in a fi...

‘Where Are the Kids?’ School Is Back in Session, but Many Kindergarteners Are Missing
It didn’t take more than one day of virtual kindergarten for Ryan Greenberg’s 5-year-old daughter, Samantha, to break down in tears, begging to go back to regular school where she could see other kids face-to-face. “I’ll wear two masks,” she told him. But for Samantha, in Montclair, N.J., and for hundreds of thousands of other children across the country, school will continue to be remote for at least the first weeks of school due to the coronavirus pandemic. And while this school year has posed new challenges for students of all ages, it’s proving especially challenging for children ...

How Climate Change May Be Contributing to Our Political Instability
If you pick up the newspaper these days, it’s hard not to be overwhelmed by the headlines: historic wildfires, a deadly pandemic and an impending U.S. election unlike any in recent memory. When you take a step back, it seems a bit like the fabric of society is fraying. Climate change isn’t entirely responsible for any of these problems, but there is a growing body of literature suggesting that climate change shapes political and social stability. Research has shown repeatedly that warmer temperatures and more extreme weather contribute to a slew of adverse outcomes: violent crime, political instability and the...
