Well in my mind, and my reality (the world that I observe around me), the climactic patterns throughout Australia have changed in my lifetime, and for the worse I may add. Victoria is quickly becoming desert before my eyes, year by year, getting less rainfall on average each season, making life for those on the land near on impossible and unbeknown to the city folk, difficult for them. The cities rely on the country for food and produce, who in turn rely on the city folk to buy its food and produce. Everything is connected.
As I mentioned in my post "COP15 - A New Hope", the time for turf wars are over, and it is now time to act for the salvation of all remaining species on planet Earth. After all, we are in the midst of the greatest mass extinction in the history of humanity. Who knows, it may even eclipse the big 5 mass extinction events of all time. Ok, a bit dramatic, but if we act now, we can prevent not only other species extinction, and maybe our own (I am exaggerating to prove a point)!
So, to keep it interesting, here are a few thoughtful blog posts from fellow bloggers covering some of the events at COP15:
Crunchy Chicken - Climategate - Should It Matter?
Cluttercut - Racism and Population Growth Copenhagen Climate Summit
Clusterfuck Nation - Climate, Oil, War, and Money
More news from COP15 as I review it each day and great blog links about the event and climate change news as I read it.
