Please Rank Your Choices 1-9

1. Jason Hicks: a friend of Giles Fox

I have a “crowd pleaser” talk that I give on cruise ships… it is part 2 of climate change, and it is entitled “Climate Change – Stewards of Our Planet”. It focuses on each individual’s contribution to climate change and explores the solutions, but with the conclusion that we are in the middle of a largely unrecognized revolution that marks the end of the fossil fuel age. It is a little more optimistic than most straight “climate” talks.


2. Charlie Paxton: friend of a friend of George Tyler
