Want a preview of what I will be talking about? Take a look at my 45 PowerPoint slides -- beginning with this one.

In my presentation, I emphasize the critical importance of totally re-engineering and optimizing ALL of the "systems" of human activity on this planet. 

Here is the slide that I use to make that point -- followed by the slide that addresses the all-important system of feeding ourselves.

The Bottom Line. In 2002, after becoming curious about the optimal diet for humans, I began a study that has led to an eye-popping, 18-year adventure of exploration and discovery regarding the fragile nature of our existence on this planet.

As I explain in my segment on Saturday and, to a much greater extent, in our new book, Outcry -- things are not looking real good for our future right now. But I have reasons for optimism -- and explain them briefly on Saturday and in much greater detail in the book. 

For an in-depth version of our best thinking regarding our chances for surviving as a species, I invite you to delve into an e-copy of Outcry sometime soon. It is a quick read that is totally-focused on how we can actually "do something" great for the billions of innocent children who will follow us on planet Earth.

My first blog on the crucial topic of totally reinventing our civilization was posted 9-21-18 and heads the list below. It was all about GRATOLA, an acronym that refers to a "green region" corridor running from Atlanta to Los Angeles. 

Since then, I have posted almost 100 additional pieces on that topic, including this one on 9-4-19 in which I introduced the GBN (Great Big Northern) -- one 25-mile wide corridor along the USA's northernmost border that would theoretically be capable of sustainably housing ALL 300+ million Americans in an area the size of Oregon.

You can find all of my SOS Memos at this page on my website. Here are a few of them:
As always, I will continue to focus on this crucial topic - in my research, my writing and my speaking. 

Promoting health, hope and harmony on planet Earth
