“More Good > Less Bad”
If there is one fundamental way of thinking we can change that will slowly ( or in some cases very quickly) make the world a better place, it is the simple understanding that even a little bit more good , is infinitely better than a lot less bad.

This has been presented to both high school students, and renewable energy entrepreneurs.
