  • The speakers at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, just can’t help themselves. They can’t resist telling everyone what they really want.
  • Take Nicole Keller, managing director of something called GreenUp, a Swiss non-governmental organization that promotes a “resource-light” lifestyle.
  • Keller let the cat out of the bag when she said, “I feel that — we were talking about work development, I think indeed we don’t need, like, growth or development.”
  • The discussion on “Protecting the Climate Vulnerable” took place on the second day of the WEF, which continues through Friday.
