I blog about environmental and social justice issues because I am very concerned about the health of the interdependent web of life of which we are a part.

Climate Change: Vanishing Sea Ice (and you may blame Bush for hiding the info)

"Disappearing summer sea ice poses considerable dangers, scientists have warned. Ice shelves are used by animals such as polar bears as platforms for hunting seals and other sea creatures. Without them, they could starve. In addition, ice reflects solar radiation. Without that process, the Arctic sea could warm up even more. The phenomenon threatens to set off runaway heating of the planet, say climatologists."
Email your MP and the Minister of the Environment and tell them that we want them to negotiate an effective, just, and binding deal on greenhosue gas emissions.  It is a matter of social and environmental justice!  And, as my earlier posts on the City of Portland illustrate, it IS POSSIBLE to roll back greenhouse gas emissions.
