The real inconvenient truth is...

we’re an inconvenient species.

Our environmental mess is accelerating – despite our wealth of available solutions. The self-conserving human systems we call “business” and “the economy” aren’t responding fast enough.

In a world of massive technology capability, it’s time to get smarter about the real challenge – effective innovation delivery within our inconvenient species.

We don’t have time to upgrade the global human psyche – and we don’t need to. 

It’s time to take advantage of the solutions developing from the quiet “soft tech” revolution, solutions that acknowledge what we are (and what we aren’t).

Join me to explore and apply the wealth of solutions we already have...

Some key human inconveniences

This blog is a work-in-progress, sparked by ongoing conversations with serious, concerned, committed citizens who want REAL climate action. Again and again some key "everybody knows" assumptions come up - assumptions that (from my point of view) are as limiting as "the earth is the centre of the universe". I see the world from the […]

Unrelieved fear shuts us down

Fear and anxiety were great for human survival when we wandered the plains of Africa as hunter gatherers 20,000 years ago. We needed to be afraid of the world around us - so we'd be ready to RUN or FIGHT when a rustle in the long grass turned out to be a saber tooth tiger. […]

Out of sight - out of mind

Take your climate impact to a 
whole new level

Hi, I'm Leigh Baker - supply chain consultant turned regenerative business advocate.

The unspoken "inconvenient truth" about global warming is that we HAVE all the solutions we need. 

See Project Drawdown's list of 100 existing, scalable solutions – just one example among many solution sets from Biomimicry to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Unfortunately, humans are a truly inconvenient species. 

Our behaviour is dictated by our illogical, risk-averse, approval-seeking, short-termist neurobiology.

We can work smarter.
We'd get a whole lot further a whole lot faster if we accepted and worked with human nature, instead of operating on 20th century myths about logic and control.

So this blog (and my upcoming book) will explore our inconvenient nature and the wealth of tools that can enable faster, smarter innovation. Tools that deal with the reality of how we are and particularly how we AREN'T.
