CO2 Levels Are Rising Even Faster!

A report released just yesterday from Australia is painting a grim picture for planet earth. According to scientists CO2 levels are rising at an alarming pace.

"The growth rate for carbon dioxide, or CO2, emissions has averaged 3.3 percent a year since 2000, compared with 1.1 percent in the 1990s, according to today's study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The rate rose 35 percent more than economic growth had led scientists to anticipate, said Corinne Le Quere, one of the authors of the paper."

Perhaps it is time that we really start to worry and begin taking some serious action... The snowballing effect of climate change is just going to make things get worse a lot sooner then scientists are predicting I am afraid. If the carbon sinks have reached their saturation point of CO2 levels we are in big trouble. You see a lot of the CO2 that we product is absorbed by the oceans and forest, but the ocean can only soak up so much CO2 and the deforestation and wildfires are devastating our natural CO2 sponges.

Today Is Blog Action Day!!!

To tell you the truth I didn't even know about blog action day until just yesterday, but as soon as I did a little research about the project I went out and put banners to promote this day on most of my blogs. There is truly power in numbers and every little event like this brings the issue of climate change a little farther into the spotlight.

With Al Gore and the IPCC recent win of the Nobel Peace Prize I think that a major worldwide movement is beginning to form. The nah-sayers that have been funded by oil and energy companies can only keep up the fight so long, before the just look silly.

The fools in The White House can only stay into power for another year (way too long in my opinion), but it will change with the power of the people. Majority rules in most cases, this one was just clouded by a lot of dirty money that funded research to try and refute the hard evidence that man is causing climate change. Sure there will still be organizations like Fox News and Exxon Mobile that try and sway public opinion, but last time I check they are not a large board of climatologist from around that world gathered together to study climate change like the IPCC are they?

We've Come A Long Way Baby!

Well maybe not... The windmill was first introduced in the 1st century A.D. and yet here we are in the year 2007 and we still have not harnessed all the power that we can from these rather simple devices.

As the news of the devastating effects that climate change is causing spreads across the planet hopefully more people will realize that this is a simple part of the solution.

There is energy all around us... whether we choose to harness it or not is our decision! Take a look at this video for a little more insight into the energy generating machine...
