Demystifying Climate Change

December 1, 2009 at 11:50 am 2 comments

My long time friend Afia Salam is the Communications Coordinator, Education & Outreach, for IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature). I have been trying to convince her to start a blog highlighting some of the issues and explaining to us novices what each of us as individuals and as companies can do to help the environment and counter Climate Change.

Until Afia agrees to do this, I will start putting up some information on “In the Line of Wire” that she sends me. This might pressurize her to set up the blog sooner rather than later.

Here are two box items that she has done for Dawn leading up to the Copenhagen Summit on Climate Change.

    Is Copenhagen the new Sharm-el-Sheikh?

    With delegates going in to the meeting determined not to commit to sorting out carbon sequestration issues, and equally strong determination to keep interrelated threads (knowledge sharing and energy, for instance) separate, we seem doomed to a dark future.

    Over and above all this, we have powerful undercurrents of strife all too obviously being stirred up between South Asian countries, which makes for an even darker future. As a friend told me earlier today, the First World seems left with no manufacturing skills at all except weaponry, and no global agenda but trouble for others.

    It may seem odd to talk about strife on the eve of a Climate Conference, but to determinedly NOT talk about strife when it affects us all seems much odder to me.
