Every time I grow weary with ALP equivocation on climate change, I tune in to what the National Party are saying about global warming and Australia's proposed Emissions Trading Scheme. Terms like bush-populism, scare mongering, truth challenged, lowest common denominator, dumbed down, heads in the disappearing top soil and other emotive responses come to mind.
Since I've been trying to give up negative attacks and sarcasm, I thought I'd offer another Climate Change website for the blogosphere from Think About It:
TH!NK2 Climate Change is a 3 month blogging competition with a focus on UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen (COP15) in December 2009. Some 90 bloggers from 43 countries, including all 27 EU Member states, India, China, Brazil and the USA, the world's biggest players in climate policy, will come together on the European Journalism Centre's thinkaboutit.eu platform, to exchange ideas and debate the issues of climate change.You don't have to be European to join the community. Just register at TH!NK ABOUT IT
Participants are encouraged to report about stories in their own back yards; to bring out the local side of a global issue. The aim is to create a portal into the lives of the TH!NKers, to show how each one experiences the effects of Climate Change policies every day.
