Every year - for the last few, anyway - there has been a national day of action blogging on a specific subject. Everyone who blogs is invited to sound off on the chosen topic, no matter where they stand. This year's topic - chosen by e-vote - is climate change. A subject that those who know me know I care deeply about. I can't possibly imagine, in fact, why anyone wouldn't. Maybe a misanthropic hermit with no descendants. We all have a stake in this fight. The biggest stake imaginable - our children's survival and quality of life.

For more information on the national blog action day, or to enroll your blog, please click on the link on my sidebar.
For the next few days, I'll be posting anything interesting I come up with on the subject. I'm focusing on positive information and concrete suggestions, since I've had enough gloom and doom to last me a long time. Like, until I'm up to my knees in warm water. Not as long as I'd prefer, actually.
Above, I've posted a fantastic graphic illustrating how much land area it would take to meet 100% of the world's energy needs in the year 2030 - given a 44% increase over today - with solar power alone. I think if you click on it you can blow it up: as it is, the areas required are so tiny you can't even see them. Ha!
