Climate Change Effects Health, Renewable Energy Ready Now

The EPA finds climate change will have a "substantial" impact on human health [ark | search] in the coming decades; worsening wildfires, hurricanes, smog and summer heat waves. Perhaps then we should do more than talk about the problem.
Our recent alert, suggesting Mr. Gore was not being ambitous enough in pursuing sufficient climate action, grew from a perception that given all the accolades and positive awareness building, there was more Mr. Gore could do in terms of calling for and organizing tranformative change. Apparently he felt this as well. The timing of the alert and the positive lifting of campaign goals by Mr. Gore are coincidental, yet given this positive development, we have decided to retire the alert. Yet, let's be clear, climate solutions depend on both personal AND social change. Thank you to all that participated in emphasizing the importance of sufficient climate solutions to the climate elite. Ecological Internet took a risk with this alert, like we do when we identify something as being important and under-reported, and perhaps in some small way together we reinforced the need for climate sufficiency [search].
