Doomsday scenarios depicting looming environmental crises and disasters are starkly out of sync with such a state of mind. We argue that they should be. The important lesson of the past few decades of environmental awareness is that the interests of wildlife and the environment are better served by optimism and hope. The environmental challenges are real, but our imagination and innate creativity give us confidence that humanity, against all odds, can and will prevail. The overwhelming complexity, elegance, and grandeur of nature powerfully motivate our concern and our resolve to protect these priceless assets.

Americans have expressed their respect for the earth in poll after poll. We have actively chosen to both live in the modern world and to avoid the tragedy of the commons. ’’ Our business acumen and entrepreneurial spirit must be used in service of achieving a ‘‘more perfect’’ stewardship of the earth. If we approach the environment with the zeal and spirit of an entrepreneur, we can accomplish much more than just the application of some bureaucratic band-aid.
