    •  what is our maximum gloom level? (7+ / 0-)

      I know there are things I can do, personally, to live more energy-efficiently, but not everyone can. My husband and I planned for several years to cover our roof with solar panels, to put in floors of bamboo and cork, to insulate and replace old appliances with efficient ones. Changes like that are out of reach for a lot of people who don't have a close relative pass away and conveniently leave a helpful amount of life insurance.(to be frank) I want to see solar water heater panels on the mobile homes, the old drafty houses, the apartments, the public buildings here.

      Still, the bad news far outweighs what my contribution can be, and it is hard for me, as the mom of an eight year old, to dwell on what kind of future he will have if there isn't cooperation at the highest levels. MB, even I feel paralyzed by the environmental news, and it is hard to read things like today's headlines.
