  1.  She should run for political office . Sounds like a politician . No specifics . Is General Mills going to stop using  Pesticide laden G M O Grains in their Breakfast Cereal ? But like most Politicians their priorities are apparent shareholders -first and foremost , the community -if it doesn’t compromise shareholder interests  , and (last thing they care about) the earth ,which could sustain us ALL if it weren’t for the Greed of the General MIlls’ , Monsnatos’ , etc ,etc of the World .
