Blog Action Day 2009: Climate Change

Blog Action Day is an annual event. On October 15th bloggers around the world post on the same issue of global importance on the same day. Any blog big or little can participate ~ nor is participation limited to environmental action oriented blogs. academic blogs, community blogs, literary blogs, news blogs, activist blogs, political blogs, art blogs, DIY blogs, food blogs, gardening blogs and so on.

As of 11 am today, 9,335 blogs ~ 12,765,983 readers ~ from 150 countries have registered for this year's event. To participate, all you need to do is write a single post on your blog about the issue of climate change on October 15th. Do sign in at the Blog Action Day website so you can be counted and listed with participating blogs around the world.

Maybe I'm cheating by blogging an image and some links... but then again I do have other blogs to do the action post thing on (even if this is the only one I registered so far). Then again, there's that saying about a picture being worth 1,000 words.

Since I can hear climate change denial grumbling among some readers, I'll keep it short, easy to follow (1 picture, 2 kids' science pages) and NM relevant (Aldo Leopold). As for those not in denial, virtuously separating recyclables is not enough: do you have any idea what flying does to your carbon footprint?
