While I’m excited that politicians will be meeting in Copenhagen in two months to devise a better way to deal with climate change, I am a firm believer in the power of the people. In a world like today, where people can start the biggest trends instantly through the click of a camera phone or a simple tweet, I’ve seen how it’s shifted from the hands of mainstream media into the hands of the ordinary citizen.
There’s no better time than today to use that power you hold in your hands. Join thousands from around the world in raising the issue of Climate Change for Blog Action Day 2009.
There’s plenty you can do to play your part. I’m making conscious choices when i buy my light bulbs. CFLs, not fluorescent.
I vote with my spending dollar when i choose locally-sourced and sustainable food. Organic, because no harmful pesticides contaminate the soil and water my food grows in. Fair Trade, because it helps the people who work to grow my food become self-sufficient and sustainable through fair wages and better practices.
Join the conversation. Share with me what you’ll be doing to build a better future for our children.
