Don’t don’t give up on the dream. I think that people like yourself Corina, who’ve been working on these hard problems for years and years. And I think sustainability and climate is about as hard a problem as any one could possibly work on. It’s not easily solvable. There’s no one solution. It takes coordinated action. It takes concerted action. It’s going to require sacrifice and change and creativity and curiosity. Those kinds of problems are really, really hard. And it’s very easy to lose faith and to say, Hey, what am I. I gotta do something else in my life. And I just encourage everyone. I say this to myself every day. Okay. Just because it’s hard doesn’t mean it’s not worth it. And so I guess the thing I would say both to myself and to anyone listening, especially to your your listener. Now don’t give up. I think I feel excited by the kind of people I work with and the quality and caliber of people that I see working on sustainability and climate these days, it’s just an exceptional community coming together.
