  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.

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.
