BAD post

Our language is evolving all the time. First 'bad' stopped meaning ... er ... bad and started meaning 'good'.

Now it means something else entirely. And it's very, very good indeed.
I'm talking about BAD, as in Blog Action Day.
And it's today!

Can you think of a single area of life that climate change won't impact on?
The food you eat, the place you live, the clothes you wear, your mode of transport, your health, the air you breathe, your community ...
And in the poorest countries, your life itself.

Though some may still disagree about the causes of climate change, the one thing all intelligent people agree on is that it's happening - and at a far faster rate than previously thought.

So what can we do?

Well, for starters, we can think carefully about our own impact on the planet. Choosing locally sourced food, growing our own, re-using and recycling, refusing goods that are heavily packaged, lowering thermostats, using cars less, switching off appliances, reducing our waste ... the list goes on.

But it's big business and industries that really need to make the changes. And they're generally only interested in their short term profit margins and sod the future.

Who can make them change their practices?
And who can influence governments?
Well, you can of course!

And the good news is you don't even have to leave your computer screen to make a difference.

Go on. What are you waiting for? For Hell to freeze over? It could happen, y'know ...

Am not intending to blog today but I have signed and tweeted (I think I have more followers on Twitter than readers on my blog anyway). Thanks for flagging this up, Debi. I hope it makes a difference.

We can but try, Queenie. I didn't know you were tweeting.

Must ... resist ... must ... resist ...

Important food for thought, all this. Thanks Debi.
