If this is climate change, then – terrible thing to say – there are moments when I rather like it. Sadly, though, the mood here at the Tällberg Forum is often closer to that you might find in a small village as the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse ride in.
A few snippets from Paul Gilding’s speech yesterday: we are all in denial, no-one is going to change, growth is finished and we are headed for global, cataclysmic collapse.
On the other hand, there was Gro Harlem Brundtland, who said in relation to solving the climate change, “We can, we must, we will.” And sessions focusing on Rwanda and on the Loess Plateau of China showed what can be done once people get serious about change.
Alejandro (Litovsky) led a great session yesterday on entrepreneurship and scale, in which the Volans corona (and our 5-stage Pathways to Scale model) featured rather nicely.
Something of a relief, though, to sit by the lake this morning and collect my thoughts.
