I think more people need to listen to George Monbiot

George Monbiot has been churning out articles like this one for ages 

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/aug/27/arctic-ice-rich...

He must be so frustrated as his messages read like an old testament Prophet and get ignored. As a species we aren't too good at looking forward and being cautious. We are like the teenager that get a Corsa and drives it like a knob.

Being such a little voice I wonder what I can do. So I'm  asking the member's of NatCAN to read some of Georges stuff. Then together we might wan't to do something.

Hmmm...George Monbiot.  Have a look at this and let me know what you think about George then please - http://bit.ly/UvuaoO

Monbiot's good at drawing attention to the issues, but less so about solutions, in my experience of his writing. Compare what he says with this : http://aworldtowin.net/blog/sea-ice-melt-puts-ecosystem-in-jeopardy... for example.

He's great isn't he? In my usual style of not finishing books, I have an old copy of Captive State half to two-thirds read on a shelf somewhere. I should finish that and read some of his more recent stuff. The climate 'change' (aka chaos) issue drives me mad. I can't work out what gets in the way more at the most powerful levels - financial interests or belief in the supernatural (aka religion). Perhaps it's something else. Here's a place I get inspiration for doing the little things we can: http://nextstarfish.com/
