Stockholm 2009 Deserves its own Blog

December 10, 2009

How could I finish this fortnight as a guest blogger without tackling the two juiciest issues of the week. So for the first:
The world engaging in a climate change binge. Why am I being so cynical? Well what are we 6 climbing to 7 or 8 billion people, well even to me that’s a big number. We are totally committed to money and growth and that means every business and every government with growing hunger for more money in the public purse and more profit in the business sphere and an insatiable urge for the new and different and better, both smaller and bigger and faster and …
So, is it really our hope that even though we want more and more and better and better for everyone everywhere, we will be able to do this without polluting our atmosphere? That is, assuming that it is us tiny billions of polluting creatures and not the sun and thus cosmic realities beyond our control that are heating our atmosphere i.e. assuming that it is actually heating. It would seem to a naive observer like myself that we are still engaged, globally, with attempting to deal with what would seem to be a real issue, purely by indulging in discussions about the symptoms. I mean, what really do we need to be talking about. Really?
