Off all things we could do for the environment – what is the most effective?

Global warming, melting polar caps, disappearing species, depleting ozone, receding rainforests and fast growing deserts – which problem should we deal with first ? Will we find the answer to these questions at conferences and seminars discussing strategies to reduce emission or change environmental law or do we have to look deeper and closer than that.

"Well," the young man replied, "in your advertisement you said you wanted somebody with imagination."
