Tom Friedman wrote a column today on "Global Weirding is here" . Interesting Read. Check it out here
More intersting is the link he provided to the website ClaimateProgress . The site claims to have put together an "Illustrated Guide to Latest Climate Science" . Check it out here
With the backlash on some of the loopholes in Climate Reporting by the UN body led by Dr. Pachauri , a lot of the "knowledgeable" professional community even in India have resorted to mud-slinging and petty fights.
The confusion is good for businesses out there bent to destroy our ecology. It is even better for businesses trying to make a quick buck out of the business of "climate change". However, for those grassroot environment professionals working every day in the field to conserve our local habitat, the daily destruction of the forests, the fight for drinking water, the man-animal conflict and changing local climate is a stark reality.
Nature has its own way of taking revenge. It can be cruel as illustrated in Haiti. Left on its own, it has an outstanding capacity to heal too. I remember, in one of our social forestry experiments few years ago, we created a social fence around a ravine depleted land in Gujarat, India. The earth responded like there was no tomorrow regenerating and nourishing the soil and rebuilding the ecosystem.
It should be the same story for our climate. It is in our interest to work with her rather then against her. Better, for mankind if we want a few more generations of us to survive.
I would love your comments on the topic. Do blog about your own field examples of how we can regenerate our "earth" at the local level. Too much time is being wasted on the business of "Climate Change"!
