  •  There was an excellent diary with this theme (7+ / 0-)

    published today by Muskegon Critic.

    A short excerpt:

    One of the oppressive things about a warming planet is, it's not just that it's a huge PROBLEM. It's also a HUGE problem. The sort of thing that seems so huge, so globally enormous, we can't possibly hope to do anything about it as regular folks. A terribly helpless feeling.

    But I'd like to gently point out: that's the sort of thinking that got us into this mess in the first place. The notion that "We tiny humans couldn't POSSIBLY impact the climate. How could we possibly? We're so, so small and the world is so, so big!" The forces against us are just to huge.

    Ah...But here we are, aren't we.

    Here we are.

    The lesson is, yeah! We CAN impact the climate. We DO have an impact. But that can be a realization for good as much as it can be a realization of "Oh...crap."

    We got ourselves into this fix. We also have the power to mitigate the effects.

    I highly recommend the whole thing.

    Let's make 2013 the year we take back our planet.
