I just got finished reading a thought provoking article at Worldchanging.com about climate change. The author makes a very valid argument that climate change needs to be addressed in a more holistic manner (which we would probably all agree on). He states that "contrary to conventional wisdom, climate change is not actually primarily an energy problem, and by thinking of it as an energy problem, we risk making huge mistakes in the coming years." Instead, he goes on to discuss how smarter growth and changing our habits are the key issues at hand.
It's always nice to read about solutions (especially ones with a broader scope) rather than more doom and gloom, although I wonder if it's too late for the massive changes we would need at that scale. Well, even if it is too late, I'd rather see us try with every ounce we have in us than continue this stalemate existence it feels like we are in.
Its worth a read, so if you feel like it, pop on by:
