Q: By the way, what gave you the idea to do these things?
A: Well... that is a good question. It started many years ago with a vision that I had... about humans killing themselves off.
Then... over the past few years... science has proven the vision to be true -- most scientists and world leaders believe humans have caused severe consequences, such as human induced climate change, that will have a dramatic impact in their lifetimes.
People like the Prime Minister of England, who use to say it might affect their great grandchildren, now acknowledge that they may not outlive the problem.
In the year 2000, I set up an estate plan for any grand children I may have someday. What would I want to leave behind to my grand children?
I started an in-depth study, an anthropological sort-of experiment, that asked people what made them the happiest in their lives.
What do you think they said? The answer was not money.
The #1 answer among the "not so old" crowd -- experiencing their children.
The #1 answer among the "elders" -- experiencing their grand children.
This led me to the conclusion for my estate plan:
I want to leave behind to any children I may have that they have the ability to experience their own children and grand children.
In order for me to execute my estate plan, I need to ensure a healthy environment for "my children's children's children."
The more effort and time that I put into executing my plan, the more I came to realize that I may fail.
At first I couldn't really imagine a world without humans. Now, that I've done my homework, it's hard to imagine a world with humans. Sorry to say, this tragedy is not in some distant time, but is within the coming years.
Oh, no! What can be done? I can sit here and cry about it or we can do something about it?
That's what this website is about -- let's get together and take the high road!
