  •  your reporting has been stellar, boatsie (5+ / 0-)

    and I thank you for that. I think our need for constant attention and and obsession with splashy headlines is a manifestation of why the planet is in such disarray. We often react before we reflect, and the talking/listening ratio is totally out of whack. It feels like everyone is running around screaming and shouting, and in the process we keep kicking up even more CO2 into the air. It may sound strange, but sometimes the best thing I feel I can contribute to the planet is to turn off my computer, just breathe, and listen to the birds and bees.

    Keep doing your fine work, it is noticed and recognized, even if not by standard ratings measures.

      that the folks trying to paint the pretty picture to ensure what limited access to the talks that they still have (most NGOs are now BANNED from the sessions and it looks like it is going to be even worse in Durban) aren't too happy with the coverage Im providing ....

      makes for lonely but necessary work. It sure would be great if this community would rise up and take on the cause of the International Climate Justice movement ...

      Hopes to be Reporting LIVE from Durban @COP17 ...
