A Hopeful Message! - The Third Industrial Revolution - Jeremy Rifkin

A Hopeful Message!!!  Jeremy Rifkin predicts fundamental reordering of human relationships, from hierarchical to lateral power, that will impact the way we conduct business (more cooperatives), govern society, educate our children, and engage in civic life... This is a positive outlook for those of us promoting more respect for "Mother Nature", more integrity in our food production, political, and economic systems... Monte Hines - Hines Farm Blog

According to the The “European Energy Review” “Perhaps no other author or thinker has had more influence on the EU’s ambitious climate and energy policy than the famous American ‘visionary’ Jeremy Rifkin.In the United States, he has testified before numerous congressional committees and has had success in litigation to ensure responsible government policies on a variety of environmental, scientific and technology related issues. The Union of Concerned Scientists has cited some of Rifkin’s publications as useful references for consumers and The New York Times once stated that “many in the scholarly, religious, and political fields praise Jeremy Rifkin for a willingness to think big, raise controversial questions, and serve as a social and ethical prophet”.
