Sioma High School in Zambia has gone solar. In the grand scheme of things, this may be a small step. However, if you have eyes to see and ears to hear, this is a glorious accomplishment. Here is what I see coming down the road.
- The developing world looks to the developed world (with America as one of the leaders) for lifestyle standards.
- Two billion people (from countries like China, India, Brazil, Russia and more) will be joining the world’s middle class over the next quarter century.
- There are not enough in-ground resources for everyone to live like Americans do now. Even if there were, there are a lot of environmental questions about the wisdom of continuing with our present consumption patterns.
- Enlightened approaches to living happier, healthier, and more rewarding lives are even now available to us.
In life, helping others is what means most. Period. End of story.
