  Daniel Goleman, Author, Ecological Intelligence Joshua Freedman, CEO, Six Seconds; Author, Inside Change Though ecological awareness is on the rise, environmental depredation continues at alarming rates. While many people cognitively understand that behavior has to change to save the planet, that knowledge isn’t often enough to trigger change. People hear about “the Great Pacific Garbage Patch,” but they still buy bottled water and throw away plastic bags. The disconnect is rooted in understanding the human brain – and the way our brains actually process danger.

She was falsely convicted of conspiracy to aid and abet terrorism because she issued a press release on behalf of her famous client, an anti-Mubarak Egyptian cleric. This was an obvious attempt by the U.S. government to silence dissent, curtail vigorous defense lawyers, and install fear in those who would fight against the U.S. government.
