There is a story we love to tell at Citizens Climate Lobby. It's a story about Gandhi's first meeting with General Smuts. Gandhi, all of 5 foot 4 inches, told the imposing South African general and politician that he planned to oppose the Asiatic Registration Act of 1908. General Smuts looked at him and said, "Really? Anything else?"
"Yes," replied Gandhi. "I will prevail."
"Oh? And how do you plan to do that?" asked the general.
"With your help," said Gandhi.
