Today is Blog Action Day! Blog for Climate Change.

Blog Action Day is every October 15th, when blogger are asked to post something about a single issue to show our strength and conviction as an online community. It's a great way to feel connected to the greater good, and the participation of so many bloggers to support the world's leading non-profit organizations is something you can do to help, right now. By blogging today, you're supporting some of the world's leading non-profits and sharing your voice for change.

This year's topic is climate change, and we'd love to read your thoughts on the topic. If you participate, leave us a link to your post in the comments, and we'll do a roundup of all the posts here on Everything TypePad.

Go to to learn more, get a badge for your blog showing your participation, and see some ideas for your post on climate change.

Here is my entry for Blog Action Day 2009:

Thanks for this wonderful project. :)


Blog Action Day

There are still those who reside upon this planet who do not yet accept that their everyday lives, their very existence, is as tenuous as that of the mayfly. They do not yet accept that the cumulative results of their actions, and inactions, of themselves and their fellow Earth-dwellers, when added to that of their ancestors, has, since at least the dawn of The Industrial Age, resulted in the planet's current lifeforms being brought to the brink of extinction. They do not yet accept that it is human activity that is the prime-mover of this result. And, most terrifying of all, they do not yet accept that they, that we humans, can, if we act quickly and decisively and bodly enough, perhaps slow down and even reverse this tragic heading.

This horrific situation we find ourselves in is known variously as global warming or climate change.

The inevitability of the end of life as we know it upon this blue planet we call home is as real as anything ever has been. We have collectively taken the path towards our own destruction and that of our fellow living things. To avoid the inevitable, to save our own lives, and to guarantee the future of humanity in the universe we can and must take action now to mitigate our negative influences upon the planet and to multiply our positive actions in changing course away from self-destruction. But we must act quickly. We must act now. And we must act in every country, every province and every village.

Very soon, in Copenhagen, some of the world's leaders gather to ponder this situation we are in. Some will deny that we are "in" anything, let alone dire straits. Others will say that we still have time to act or that there is nothing we can do about it. Others still will say that this is merely a cycle that Earth goes thru and that she will naturally come out of it in her own time. And then there will be those, mostly from the countries that are the most greedy, the most consuming and the most destructive of Earth's dwindling resources that will say that their country cannot afford to do anything about climate change. They will say that it is not fair that they have to make changes when other countries, such as the United States of America, have acted so irresponsibly. And there will be much difference of opinion, much arguing and name-calling.

While Copenhagen fiddles, the Earth warms.

If the world's leaders do not act and act now, the inevitable will be upon us. Some day soon, perhaps in our lifetimes, we will reach the point of no return. The point beyond which no actions on our part will have any positive affect. The point at which those who have not accepted reality will find themselves starting at the face of it. The face of death. Death of dreams, of goals, of families, of prosperity, of democracy, of good and of evil. And the earth, less blue, will still revolve, though lifeless, around the sun. And no one will be there to tell the tale of man.


I'm doing my small part by writing about climate change and going to a Farmer's Market this wknd. Any little bit helps!

This is a blog about my Daughter's Wish for every child on the planet:

I blogged about the aspects of my new triple-bottom-line business that provide consumers with ideas and eco-friendly choices that improve the quality of their own lives, the lives of those less fortunate and the environment ~ reducing our carbon footprint and, consequently, our impact on global warming. New visitors are welcome! I look forward to reading the other blog action day posts tonight.

Carpe Diem ~



Planet Venus was named after the Greek goddess of love and beauty because it's supposed to be the brightest and most beautiful planet in our solar system. Yet, planet Earth is even brighter to me and, possibly the most beautiful planet in the Universe! I think it's worth making a small effort to save it from total destruction,


Here's a link to my blog on climate change that I have hosted on typepad these last couple of years !! I am trying to cover some of the technical and accounting responses that are beginning to evolve.

Key to this is my belief that society has to develop new procedures to account (in monetary terms) for the emissions that our manufacturing, power and service industries produce, as well as those that we generate in going about our every day lives. This is tricky as it not only involves accounting for emissions as they are generated, but also those that are embedded in the products and services we buy.

I hope my blog will be of interest.

Posting and posting about climate change, 350 ppm and starting some new pages with free climate change actions art-work made by The Design Squad and we strated some Communication Waves supporting 350.


My Blog Action Day post is located at and contains 5 things you can do to reduce help the environment.


Although I follow the area of climate change carefully, I was caught unaware there was going to be a Blog Action Day dedicated to the very subject that my blog focusses on. So belatedly, here is my contribution to the Day:
