Want everyone else to buy into environmentalism? Never
say “Earth” 

By Heather Smith


>From me: you've got to speak the language of people you are talking to. It won't help if I post my thoughts in Russian, would it? May make the conversation a bit exotic, I guess ;-) On a serious note, after speaking to all sorts of groups over the years I saw that it is a whole lot easier to dismiss a speaker if he or she is talking in a "different language". Complex ideas need to be presented in simple terms. Don't try to make PhD's out of your listeners - you'll just fail. All you need to do is to open the door. People will walk in themselves. The challenge for you it figure out which door to open!

Good luck,
