James Aspey: This speech is you WAKE UP CALL! – “I want to talk to you about what we are doing to this planet, ourselves, and our fellow Earthlings.

I want to ask you to listen to this speech and hear a new perspective. Perhaps it will change your life, perhaps it won’t, but I believe you deserve to know the truth. I know I’m very grateful to have learned it and now I want to share it with you. I think you’ll be grateful, too.”    – James Aspey
