Thoughts about the climate change.

By February 3, 2007 No Comments

I guess (or hope) everyone’s already aware of the climate change report which was published yesterday. The panel concluded that it was at least 90% certain that human emissions of greenhouse gases rather than natural variations are warming the planet’s surface.

So we should act.

But doesn’t it feel a bit odd to buy a energy light saving light bulb when currently there are over 2500 coal mines in China and dozens (or even hundreds) more are being built every year?

No wonder people are thinking that the actions of one individual do not count.

But it’s worth remembering that even though you’re thinking your actions won’t count, it still is a bigger bad when you won’t do what you easily COULD do.
