I was born 12 years after the end of World War II. The global population was 2.8 billion people. You could buy a house in Vancouver for $15,000. The level of CO2 in our atmosphere was 316 parts per million.
At the age of fifteen I quit school. Not because I found it too hard – I graduated with honours from Junior High – or because I needed a job. I quit because I was bored. I skipped classes to go to the library and read. I saw through the charade that was trying to get me to fit into society. I wanted to learn more. I wanted to do more. I wanted to live more.
This is my journey.
