If you could solve one global challenge what would it be and why?
Sustainable land management. We get so much from the land, and yet we continue to manage it poorly for the most part. To solve this problem requires us to address technical, policy, financial and governance issues. Solve these and we solve so many other issues, including climate change. Perhaps that is why it is so hard to achieve.
Who would you most like to have dinner with, dead or alive? And why?
David Brin. His grasp of science and society and how they work together for better and for worse would make for some fascinating conversations. Plus I could bug him to get another book in the Uplift series written.
If your company had a theme song, what would it be and why?
Move on up (Curtis Mayfield). Upbeat with a strong message to keep on moving forward.
