This gentleman was very interesting to talk to. He was visiting NYC on business from India. When I met him it was his last day in town and he was trying to see the sites before he left that evening. I told him about the project and he told me, "You know there is not even a conversation about climate issues happening in India right now. We live in a really crowded, really polluted country and all anyone is concerned with is having more. They are all chasing the American dream of having everything."
Well, maybe now he can have the conversation, and maybe now we can think twice about the role model we may or may not want to be.
