What have you done today to lower your impact?

We are washing away the foundations of our existence on every front. It is high time we move from crashing about on the planet like a bull in china shop and find a way to go forward with intent. We must find systems of living based on sustainability. The systems and tools exist, it is up to each of us to adopt them.

Maybe I was too hasty to get depressed about Copenhagen.

Sounds like I might have reason for optimism. First I checked out the interview with James Hansen that I posted previously. Now I've found this post from Joe Romm over at Climate Progress.

It seems that the agreement reached in the final hours of Copenhagen, regardless of the shame of how the developing world and civil society was shut out, could end up being the best outcome we could have hoped for.

Could be.
Check it out.
What do you think?

We made progress forward. This is going to be a tough one-- a marathon, not a sprint.

Our expectations were unrealistic-- our end goals are not.

Good point, no one ever said it was going to be easy. I find it very difficult to reconcile the imperialism on display at COP-15 with the idea that the end result may be the best we could have hoped for given the realities of the world we live in.
