UN meeting Climate Change 2010 Cancun, Mexico

Added on by NYC Subway Girl.

 

Global Climate Change action in Cancun, Mexico seems to be for the most part stuck.  As it was sadly inefficient last year in Copenhagen, will those that are meeting this year finally agree that humanity is as stake?

here's a blog post by Richard Leigh from Urban Green Council (UGC)

We can and should do so much more.

I've learned from Radiohead's website that UK Prime Minister David Cameron is not attending.  Why is it that heads of state find it so hard to understand that leadership means thinking about the future of our future.  I do hope that US Energy Secretary Steven Chu's warnings of our own hiding under a rock while other nations charge forward into newer technology's will hold sway.  It's a new millennium folks, call it whatever you'd like, Greentech, Green jobs, but developing and funding alternatives to petroleum and coal are healthier and more sustainable for our environment while being very financially appealing.
