I highly recommend reading Abundance: The Future Is Better Than You Think. This is a feel good book. It provides a long list of positive activites that are happening right now. It is very inspiring and can help one get moving and make a difference. This is in contrast to a book like Tim Flannery’s Here On Earth which highlights the problems, but sheds little light on solutions or activities in progress. Flannery’s book is a must read, but it feels so “heavy” afterward.
