If your day to day responsibilities were taken care of and you could throw yourself completely behind a cause, what would it be?

Way back, when I was contemplating a career in law, I was passionate about the environment and the health of our oceans. That passion hasn’t gone anywhere, if I had the wherewithal and the education to set me on my way, I would very much like to do work for the United Nations in reference to safeguarding our seas, especially in the Arctic Circle, the very fact that the ice has receded to the extent that it has and that countries are competing over oil rights, natural gas rights and any other mineral rights makes my stomach clench. How much more climate chaos do we have to undergo before the greedy conglomerates understand that we are at an impasse. Our planet may survive these climate catastrophes, but we humans may very well not. I want to leave our future generations clean air, clean water and soil that hasn’t been depleted of all nutrients. I think that our humanity is on the line, we need to embrace compassion, empathy and self-awareness to fight for our climate’s equilibrium.
