Unique Ideas to Fix Our Flailing World

When I was growing up, climate was a concept, not a challenge. Today’s children think about their impacts on the environment every minute, and it’s not hard to see why gloom and doom may overpower optimism in the face of such daunting outlooks. 

But hope survives, and there are very unique — some would even say rather obvious — ways to stem, if not even turn, the tides. This week’s issue brings three such ideas: one rooted in soil, one focused on the sun, and one developed by our own intellectual institutions, all aimed at showing what’s possible to make a difference for our grandchildren’s grandchildren.
