COPENHAGEN: Hope for/from Copenhagen

COPENHAGEN: Hope for/from Copenhagen

While a legally binding agreement coming out of COP15 is far from happening there are many hopeful souls still here in Copenhagen fighting to move the conversation forward – to move the world in a direction of real climate change. Rumor has it the UNFCCC has asked negotiators to stay through Sunday.  Hopenhagen is still alive.
 
Here’s one post of hope… “Over the past months, and now as as we reach the deadline for governments to reach a global deal here at the climate talks in Copenhagen, I have been struck by the collaboration – across borders and oceans – occurring in so many places and in so many quarters. On an unprecedented scale, business leaders, faith leaders, mayors, governors, and NGOs are working together within their communities to take on the climate challenge. This gives me hope. As national governments work to negotiate an agreement, this action by sub-national governments and others will enable us to move further, to act faster, to meet the urgency the climate requires.” – Aimee Christensen, Executive Director of Global Observatory and long-time climate change adviser.

My hopes were dashed with people the world over due to the disappointing outcome of the Copenhagen summit. Do we not understand that our lives are intricately tied to the lives of all mankind? How can we continue to live on the backs of third world nations by continuing to live excessively?

Hi Bob, It is not so much the photo as the sheer arrogance of the lady. It seems there is no other way than hers!
BTW: I took the vitamins but I'm a realist so they do not seem to help my jaundiced view of the world.

Thanks to Renee L. for posting those 3 links to get more information for oneself. There are so many different opinions as there is people, so calling one opinion down does not make the others right. We need to act all like respectable adults that we all are & respect each others opinions. Only God know for sure what is since we have been bluntly lied to by so many politics & Government official that we all have very good reasons to all make our own observed opinions. What will be will be! At this point it is all in Gods hands.

Tsk Tsk tsk; Oh Jack , now there you go again.
Didn't you ever hear the one about people who live in glass houses?
Now be a good boy and take your vitamins.

Judging by your photo, you are the most arrogant three-year-old Shirley Temple wannabe I have ever met!
