Plastic everywhere...  soon the world will be wrapped in a virtual plastic bag.    not that we need reminder!   A number of people have said "Every snowflake in the avalanche proclaims, it wasn't my fault" (something like that).  It's up to all of us.

Davey,

Please make sure you invite everyone in this group after you start the new Climate Change group. I'd like to continue reading and commenting about it.

I also tried to set up an outline of subject matter and found it difficult as it kept growing. That in itself would be an interesting independent topic for discussion. Why hasn't anyone commented on my discussion about HOME SOLAR CELLS?

Thanks,

Chris

Reading through the comments twice, I'm not sure what to add, except to acknowledge the strongly held points of view.  Thanks for the thoughts.

I'd be hard pressed to suggest something for you, as I find I am less and less active, just like 100s of other users who fatigued from A|N and T|A, due to inactive 'groups'. I would overhaul the entire concept of both of these Ning sites, delete most groups, and use stronger search engines to pinpoint conversations we want to participate in. I've suggested this elsewhere in appropriate conversations.... IMO, the only reason to create 'groups' is to create 'safe-havens' to get away from certain haters, as experienced from males in feminist groups for example.
I see overpopulation driven earth deterioration as the first political priority of our civilisation... so to 'chat' about environmental factoids among a half dozen people is quite unproductive. We need to get out there to the 'masses', on Ning and the real world, and work on our argumentation skills.
Changing political paradigms is less about facts than it is about power of persuasion, we could all improve on this :)

I do like the idea of going to a category, such as a category of

banter,

communities,

ecology,

economics,

government, 

hobbies. 

personal comments,

philosophy,

politics,

science with subsections,

sports,

work related subjects by occupation. 

Good heaven, trying to catalog topics would be a herculean task.

 TNT666, help me understand a preferred way to join a group or start a new one. When I have something to post, I do a A/N search to see if there is a topic under which it would fit. If this were an ideal site, how would you design it. I like the idea but don't know how to make it happen. I certainly wouldn't want the job. 

I just went through the first 8 pages of groups and there are so many, and some are impossible to categorize. 

Comment by TNT666 on August 19, 2012 at 1:15pm

You're absolutely right... I don't have to follow 'every' group, and I don't, and I'm following fewer and fewer groups, because of inactivity. I'm not talking about just me here, I'm looking at A|N from a philosophical-sociological perspective, the more splinter groups there are the less effective A|N is at communicating a message through dilution of interest. Look at how many gazillion discussions people "start" which never get interaction. Environmentalism, all of it, is always biological-political-social, there's no getting away from it.

More groups = less readers per topic, it's a loose-loose situation.

Comment by Daniel W on August 19, 2012 at 12:35pm

A group doesn't have to be continuously active.  This group is ecological issues in general.  Climate change is an important topic than encompasses ecology but is more political, sociological, economic, and other.  The title of this group does not reflect that, and the topic is overwhelmed with climate change postings. 

You don't have to follow every group.

Comment by TNT666 on August 19, 2012 at 11:52am

If it were up to me... I'd cut the number of groups at A|N down to a dozen. We're all talking to people who are already on the wagon... and it seems a majority of the groups in A|N are not active anyway... we are way too spread out.

Comment by Daniel W on August 19, 2012 at 9:27am

Davey, that's great!  I'm glad you are doing it!  Be patient with group approval - sometimes it takes a few days because the people at the helm are volunteers.  I will love to join - important topic!
