But if I repeat it three times, I’m making you believe that it is important… Let’s look at a picture of the planet for no reason …. Slowing my speech, lowering the volume of my voice, by looking at you directly, and by making a list on my fingers, I’ve made you believe there is a point. Sip of water. (Ahh!) Check the time. (Hmm!) Let’s bring this puppy home. Graph! Graph! Graph! Graph! Pie chart! Statistic! How about we end with a question? A very big question? What if everyone in this room decided to come together and agree with what I am saying? Here’s a picture of the planet again. That is a world I want to live in. Coming back to the center of the stage. Standing ovation…
