Think Global. Act Local!

A politically binding agreement to do something, sometime...

The NY Times is reporting that leaders are delaying a climate change agreement in favour of a less specific, but still politically binding, agreement to do something about the climate problem at a later date.

Many people, including climate scientists worldwide, see the Copenhagen climate talks as our last chance to get on track with reducing emissions and I have to admit that I see the talks as crucial.

Now more than ever it is important to keep up the pressure on our leaders to act in our best interest. This weekend will be The Wave. See the full details here. Also, in the middle of the Copenhagen summit there will be candlelight vigils held around the world. I'll blog more details in the future.

Working in the field of climate science I get to see first hand the concerns of scientists and also the onset of climate induced disease and species loss. Let's do everything we can to reduce the problems we are set to face in the future.
