  •  Good morning boatsie. (16+ / 0-)

    Hope you had a good night's sleep.  I saw your comment to me this morning.  I went to bed right after that comment.  You are a real trooper and I thank you for all your work.  I will repost a comment I made in bb of florida's diary earlier.

    I would say I'm disappointed but I'm really not because the results I expected actually were realized.  The failure of almost 200 nations trying to come to consensus on an issue as difficult to deal with as global climate change should not surprise anybody.  Never fear - nature will not let the issue go away and self preservation is one hell of a motivator.  Comfortable politicians in suits who have their own national vested interests to uphold and protect could not be expected to succeed.  That is not how this fight will be won!  Do the Math - 200 nations agreeing to take coordinated action - never happen.  Kingpin nations (like Germany) are emerging as role models.  We need to work on making the U.S. one too.  If we can succeed in doing this the ripple effects throughout the world will be dramatic.  Those of us who care about this issue must not get discouraged.  
    You should feel real good about the work you did during this conference.  This public face of climate change mitigation efforts does not reflect the underlying reality of change that is happening out there.  Keep the faith!

    If we really want to straighten out all this crap we really need to think about shit - Holy Shit.
