Rio’s murky waters and Zika mosquito challenges are a preview of coming attractions unless as an Olympic Family, like the musicians and actors, we boldly mobilize to curb climate change.

As a result of some coincidences on New Year’s, my imagination went wild of how we can easily, blissfully, passionately inspire a phenomenal Earthrising in 2015.
