US Impeding Bali Climate Talks

"It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends on his not understanding it." - Upton Sinclair

Yes, I get the irony of the post following a post on how I don't talk about Global Warming is about Global Warming but that's on a personal level. On a national governmental level it is of the utmost importance and agreement on this fact is what is going to make all the difference. So how sad am I as an American that my government is one of the biggest problems and at the same time is refusing to be a part of the solution.

Check out this article in the NY Times which illustrates how much of the problem we in the US are

or the one in The International Herald Tribune

or in The Australian

and then sign the petition here to tell them that you won't stand for this

And then pass this on to everyone you know who has a child or grandchild and ask them to do the same.


Live Sustainably

Dig these excerpts from Al Gore's speech in Bali.

Cool. Thanks for posting em Doug. I especially appreciate the fact that he didn't pull any punches in calling the US out as one of the biggest problems.
