I may be wrong or more likely unaware, but it seems to me we are on the precipice mankind has never seen. We may have a real opportunity to actually manage our future.

Imagine the first men looking to the heavens with arms outraised proclaiming loudly that they would do something to manage their environment. Imagine the world they would have left us all these generations later.
