Emergency Petition - Please sign!

Please add your name to the petition to demand that these three countries get on board with the rest of the world at the Bali Climate Change Conference!

Scientists agree that a 25-40% reduction in carbon emissions are needed by 2020 to avert the worst of global warming scenarios. If you feel strongly about this, please consider adding your signature to those of the 165 000+ people who have already done so in the past 45 hours!

Just thought I'd let you know, I've nominated you for a blog award. You can read the details here :-)

And yes, I'll sign! The debating and time-wasting is disgusting - I've been following bali and am appalled.

Thank you so much daharja. I'm flattered to have been nominated. It is very humbling to have one's words be considered powerful. I have been reading a book by Buddhist monk Thich Naht Hanh lately, who says that words can relieve suffering and produce joy - mighty tools indeed, and ones to wield with care.

Thank you also for signing the petition! It looks like a deal was reached, from what I heard on today's news, but with vague and watered down language. Our Canadian prime minister Harper needs to be nominated for a "Weak Words" award I think. I'm appalled right along with you.
