希望的無畏

I’m not talking about blind optimism here —— the almost willful ignorance that thinks unemployment will go away if we just don’t think about it, or the health care crisis will solve itself if we just ignore it.

奧巴馬在2004年民主黨全國黨代表大會的講話,今日已被列入「經典」了。談奧巴馬的政治魅力及其”kennediness”時,總會見人Quote之不疲。

奧巴馬這篇speech,放在任何一個做氣候變化的人口中講出來,其實也很貼切。We’re not talking about blind optimisim here –the willful ignorance that thinks climate change does not exist if we just don’t think about it, or that it will solve itself out as a natural phenomenon if we just ignore it.

Hope —— Hope in the face of difficulty. Hope in the face of uncertainty. The audacity of hope!

所以就說climate change–but so can you!

It’s not about rich versus poor ;
young versus old ;
and it is not about black versus white ;
it’s about the past versus the future.
