Supporting Blog Action Day

I don’t have a lot to say about Climate Change that hasn’t been said already. It’s a complex topic with many smart people arguing all the bits of it.

What I will say is this: if anyone needs to be convinced that we are fucking up the earth, just look at a traffic jam, or a landfill, or a shanty town. The disaster we are making for ourselves is obvious, and to hide behind intellectualisation is a cheap trick. The plans and proposals before the UN are far too small to make a lasting difference at this stage, but they’re something.

So for what it’s worth, I’m adding my voice to the fray in the hopes that common sense, if not scientific knowledge, will inspire us all to behave differently.
