In our climate changing world  we need to make some significant changes.  The  title of this article suggests that we are moving in the wrong direction.  We are making things worse. We need an “off ramp”–a way of  going in a different direction.  We need to change the way we think about the new climate changing world we are experiencing.  We need to go down the off ramp to move in and create a new road forward.  One of the steps in the process is a practise of meditation.
