He believes that over 7 billion can peacefully coexist in an abundant environment but only if we meticulously plan it out. He knows that we can no longer compete with each other and should instead partner with the planet and other nations to combat global concerns as if millions of lives depend on it, because they do. Some of the pressing concerns include world hunger, climate change, the eventual carbon bubble collapse, and more. He is haunted by the fact that if we don't map out and plan paradise now, while the sea levels continue rising at a record pace, we will likely default to oblivion soon. What fuels him is creating a better tomorrow for his daughter, loved ones, and for the entire human race.
