May riot update

I seem to have messed up my original post. I’ll try to fix it when I have time.


No Time To Waste

This appeared on a website called The Daily Kos. My mother reads it every day and sent the link to me. I thought it was so important I wanted to spread the word. To read the whole post click on the link at the bottom.

“Hansen on Warming: We have ONE year.. ONE election (Updated)”

Mon Jun 23, 2008 at 07:25:51 PM PDT

In 2006, the great climate scientist James Hansen famously said

I think we have a very brief window of opportunity to deal with climate change … no longer than a decade, at the most.

Since then, things have gotten much, much worse.  The Arctic ice is melting faster than expected.  CO2 emissions are accelerating.  Global warming is accelerating.

Hansen no longer stands by his estimate that we have one decade to turn things around. He now thinks that was too optimistic.

Today, James Hansen told congress that  we have one year.

Recycled Art

A friend sent this information too me. Lynne Stein is an artist who uses cast-off clothing to make artwork. It is very beautiful and could be very useful as well. Check out the others who are recycling what they find into art.

BBC – North West Wales In Pictures – Lynne Stein

Now if I could only figure out where to find some clothing that nobody wanted so I could make one of these as well…..hummm.
