A chance for change for our future
The UN Climate Change Conference begins in Copenhagen today where our leaders have come together to negotiate a treaty which will be so important for the world in the years ahead. It is important that we don't get any more prevarication and fudges - there should be no doubt that we are in a period of serious global warming which is having consequences for all nations. Developing nations need the help of the wealthy nations - we all need to help each other. We can all do things individually to consume less, waste less and live our lives in without having every new gadget that comes onto the marlet. I'm not advocating a return to the harsh conditions that our parents endured - just think before we act. I'm a serious over-consumer so I'm going to commit to change - hope you guys will as well!
