Climate Change Blog Action Day


Apparently today is Blog Action Day for Climate Change and I thought I'd throw it open to my wonderful blog readers.

I find myself alternatively optimistic and despairing on climate change. How bad is it going to be? Are we going to do what it takes to avoid the worst? And what do you think is going to be the most help? People and communities and businesses taking action themselves? National governments agreeing on strong action at Copenhagen and setting up strong domestic laws, like emissions trading? Peak oil or economic crisis reducing emissions automatically? Or technological breakthroughs making it easier than we thought? Or will it take some real environmental crisis to get the impetus?

What do you think? Put in your two cents for Blog Action Day - bloggers, regulars, visitors and lurkers!

Cheers

Dave

Hi:
A little late for Blog Action Day
But I suppose that's OK
Because my satisfaction
Depends on CC inaction--
Foot dragging in a positive way.

For when the mystery of CC has been resolved,
And "What's green and causes warming" is no longer a popular riddle,
The legacy of that era will be, simply:
"Never have so many made so much over so little".

(Apologies to the late, great Winston Churchill).

I'm way behind but seeing as you asked. I am more worried about all the loss of species than anything that will happen to us. We will adapt but our children will ask us what it was like to hold a frog or be stung by a bee. I think we underestimate the spiritual aspects of life and especially the role of nature in our happiness and wellbeing. But I am not grieving yet!
