Making Observations: Seeing the World as it Currently is and Adjusting Accordingly
with Javier Ocasio

"Making Observations came about through my need to educate myself, my fellow active citizens and the passive people who go about their daily lives not knowing the current state of the world they live in. Only by getting a visual picture of the present health of our biosphere and the humans who reside in it, can we see what our impact is, and thereby understand how urgent and dire our current situation is. That in turn will enable us to see the importance of developing a broad strategy in which everyone can participate to respond to this crisis, and how unity is the key to our survival." -- Javier Ocasio
