Feast for Thought

Not pontificating. Only trying to bat on the side of the environment. And ethics. And simple living. And slowing down. (And trying to learn and practise before preaching or teaching...)

Dare we hope? at Copenhagen?

Last June this blog mentioned "The Story of Stuff". The same presenter has come out with another video on The Story of Cap & Trade ahead of the Climate meet at Copenhagen. Host Annie Leonard introduces the "energy traders and Wall Street financiers at the heart of this scheme and reveals the "devils in the details" in current cap and trade proposals: free permits to big polluters, fake offsets and distraction from what’s really required to tackle the climate crisis. If you’ve heard about cap and trade, but aren’t sure how it works (or who benefits), this is the film is for you."
While on the subject - listen and pass on this message too (message from a 12 year old, delivered at the 1992 Rio Earth Summit, which is now more relevant than ever).

I hope this young lady's speech is heard around the World. It is too much to expect World leaders to make far reaching announcements at Copenhagen next. When the planet decides to give us a wake up call, it is not going to be pretty!
