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.

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!

I'm wondering if it's time to start a group that is specific to climate change issues?  It would be great way to consolidate the topic.   i'm not up to moderating another group, myself...  lost track of how many  I do moderate.  Any takers?

Interesting article about coping with climate change.  HuffPost.

I like a number of aspects about the article.

First - it shows industries and farmers who are not climate change deniers, but facing the crisis head on.  They are not all in denial.

Second, it shows that some people are working on ways to cope.  That's not to deny the seriousness of climate change, but if the most of the world is either in denial, apathetic due to greed, politics, religion or narcissism, or ignorant, and we are already at the tipping point, doing something proactive to cope, and teach others to cope, is better than nothing,

Finally, it's once of the few articles I have found that shows attempts to adapt to a changing climate. 

So they are trying to be proactive, knowing that tipping points are just that - once you are past the tipping point, there is no coming back.

I would like to see more, especially two-fers.  A two-fer is 2 for the price of one.  For example, development of dry tolerant crops that use less water, use less energy, preserve the soil and cut back CO2 emissions.  So that is adapting to change, but contributing less to causing change.   Using hemp or grasses, to produce paper and fabric, are examples.  More development of bamboo for construction, saving trees to sequester more CO2. 

As for myself, I got a white roof to help cool the house - makes a big difference.  This summer I've planted 6 fruit trees, some to shade a south wall for additional cooling.  Once established with deep roots, they won't need much watering like lawn or garden.  I have 3 more left to plant, but with the heat it's hard to keep up with watering, even with a heavy mulch.  I've been converting light bulbs to LED, which are cooler and use a lot less energy.  Still driving to work....  would someone please tell my employer to reopen the office they closed, 3 miles from my house?

Temperatures climbing, weather more unstable, a majority says in poll

From the Washington Post:

Most Americans say they believe temperatures around the world are going up and that weather patterns have become more unstable in the past few years, according to a new poll from The Washington Post and Stanford University.

But they also see future warming as something that can be addressed, and majorities want government action across a range of policies to curb energy consumption, with more support for tax breaks than government mandates.

Sigh, immediately following the article this link was in the comments: http://www.wakeupkiwi.com/climate-change-scam.shtml

That web page had a link to "The Alien Presence"
