Inspiration for Copenhagen

| 1 Comment

Here are a couple of websites that were listed by Dana Roth and Fred Stoss on Chemical Information  and Science & Technical Librarians listservs:

1.  From Saturday's International Day of Climate Action  http://www.350.org/?p=4

2.  Announcing two major photography exhibits, "Climate Change In Our World" and "How We Know About Our Changing Climate," which will premier in Washington DC just as the U.S. Senate begins debate on climate and energy legislation and a month before the international UNFCCC meetings in Copenhagen.
 
In an effort to educate and inspire about climate change and its solutions, Gary Braasch brings twenty 5-foot color photographs of climate change and its solutions today, to the Washington headquarters of the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences -- November 10 through March 15, 2010.
 
Accompanying this show of images from his book Earth Under Fire: How Global Warming is Changing the World is a teaching exhibit for kids and adults about how scientists learn about climate change, in association with Lynne Cherry. This show includes educational ideas for classrooms and Cherry's films about kids who are reducing their climate impact in school and their communities.

Location: AAAS

Special Note: The "Young Voices" films also will be shown several times at events in Copenhagen.

I would like to see both perspectives on this issue unified in some way. I find that people are talking right past each other when it comes to the discussion of climate change. Are we destroying the planet? Of course we are. Now, what do we do about it? Is pollution in our water, air and soil making this Earth less than it should be? Of course it is? Well, people who believe in climate change like to eat out, too, they like to shop, and they like their toys from China.

We literally have to stop the industrialized world in order to reverse what is known as climate change. Nothing else will work, not carbon credits, not new government policy. We have to stop producing things and get back to harmony with the Earth.
