    How do we organize a civilized response to the needs of a new age? What do we want and how can we achieve it in a democratic society based on the rule of law? In this episode of World Ocean Radio host Peter Neill attempts to answer these questions and more. This is part 1 of a 3-part series on designing a plan for the future which will protect natural resources such as water, wildlife, and air, one which will endure over the challenging circumstances of the 21st century.
