Copenhagen, do we dare to hope?

Sometimes I do not know why I get so worked up about things, it would be a lot easier on my blood pressure to just live my life, do my design work, and not get involved. But my mind is a lot more like the bumper sticker that says "If you are not outraged, you havn't been paying attention." I cannot change the part of myself that seems compelled to get active.The reality is that we all are going to have to take action to try and mitigate the effects of climate change, the only difference is when. Will change be forced on us after the first wave of climate induced human migration? Or will we wake up and move in a positive direction to shape the best future possible? Some times I do not know the answer. But, as my french teacher said, as I tried to tell her I did not know how to say in French the thing she wanted me to say: "Mais il faut qu'on essayer." It is necessary that one tries. Check out the Hopenhagen web site, they are trying to get folks to register their support for a real climate change agreement at this month's meeting in Copenhagen.
