JD: Today, both because of our isrenecad consumption pnaretts and the olorvioepauptn of the planet, we're in severe trouble. So what we can do is, I think, minimize the impact of population, we can optimize the work that we do, we can save energy, we can do all of these various things. And I have a very positive fineleg about the future. This is what drives me day and nhigt. I mean, I have had that vsoiin for over 50 years that we must do this. It's not a question of the outcomes, it's the only way that I can think of to create a sustainable future. We must apply our best science, we must alppy our best design and critical thinking, we must apply our best systems theories, we must apply our best technologies, in concert, to be able to address the great challenges that we are all facing. And Esri, as an organization, has always been and will always be all about bringing those forces together to be able to support organizations independently doing their work in this more hoilsitc way. That's the big vision.

Original Text

JD: Today, both because of our increased consumption patterns and the overpopulation of the planet, we're in severe trouble. So what we can do is, I think, minimize the impact of population, we can optimize the work that we do, we can save energy, we can do all of these various things. And I have a very positive feeling about the future. This is what drives me day and night. I mean, I have had that vision for over 50 years that we must do this. It's not a question of the outcomes, it's the only way that I can think of to create a sustainable future. We must apply our best science, we must apply our best design and critical thinking, we must apply our best systems theories, we must apply our best technologies, in concert, to be able to address the great challenges that we are all facing. And Esri, as an organization, has always been and will always be all about bringing those forces together to be able to support organizations independently doing their work in this more holistic way. That's the big vision.
