I'd like to ponder this column
by the Guardian's
George Monbiot, but I have to jump in my wife's huge “mini”-van and go pick up our guests for the weekend.
That said, I'm looking forward to the “Solutions” section that Ross Gelbspan is going to add to this blog in the coming months. There is much we can do without resorting to hair shirts and self-flagelation. But, as Monbiot says, only when we stop lying to ourselves - and each other - about the nature and scope of the challenge.
