What Are Our Leaders Doing?

This is a photograph of me with my granddaughter, Kimaya, from 2012, taken at a protest outside a Climate Reality training session in San Francisco, CA. The protest was to ask Vice President Al Gore to talk about animal agriculture so that we can begin to address our lifestyle issues and transition from our caterpillar phase. He still refuses to talk about it. Moreover, the problem isn't just Mr. Gore, but every one of our leaders avoids talking about consumption and lifestyle issues as they are stuck promoting the growth-oriented consumer culture of the Caterpillar.
