My children’s world

How often have I asked you to do something for me? I think I asked you once to think about drinking more water from the tap, but that’s the only thing that comes to mind.

What I’d like you to do now is a little more important, but it requires a lot less effort. Consider signing an online petition. It’s about the ongoing climate negotiations in Bali, and the role the US has taken to thwart progress. The hope is the petition will urge the US, Canada, et al to consider cooperating, rather than stifling progress towards a meaningful successor to Kyoto.

I really wish I had more time to tell you why I think you should, but it’s getting really late. I will say that I was probably more like you a few months back, but I’ve come to feel that things are a little more urgent. Maybe tomorrow. In the mean time, at least give it a look, and consider taking a small step towards a better world.

Give the gift of words.
