One Blue Marble
An activist web site in the war to slow climate change
is now online, and will grow as we focus on our medium and our message!
Richard Levangie & Kristina Robinson
We've always been environmentalists, but after reading Heat by George Monbiot last year, we realized that global warming is the most serious problem that our society has ever faced. More serious than the Cold War, potentially more deadly than World War II.
Then, as luck would have it, we found work in the environmental publishing industry, so we now read hundreds of climate change and clean tech stories every week, and that's provided us with a deep understanding of the issue, and a strong sense of purpose.
One Blue Marble is an attempt to focus attention on climate change. We're running out of time.
The most important thing you can do to slow global warming is to get involved. No one can sit on the sidelines; we need to engage everyone in society, beginning with our politicians.
In fact, this campaign was inspired by President Barack Obama's call to ordinary Americans to become the change we wish to see in the world. We're thrilled about Obama's rise to the White House, and want to do everything we can to support the whirlwind of change that will be needed for the US to become a leader in the fight to slow global warming.
Truth to tell, we both have been profoundly saddened by Canada's slow, dishonorable slide off the international stage. We are now one of two or three developed nations standing in the way of a comprehensive agreement to combat climate change. At the climate summit in Bali last December, the Canadian and American delegations were booed! We're doing the same thing in Poznan, Poland this year.
