We do not inherit the Earth from our parents, but borrow it from our children
This earth is not ours, we are using it on a limited basis. We are already facing serious consequences, and will continue to unless we help make change happen.
On December 7, representatives of 192 countries will meet in Copenhagen to discuss how to effectively start reducing carbon emissions. This is will allow us to set standards and more importantly benchmark ourselves. In order to see how effective we have been with our efforts, now and going forward, we need to see where we have come from.
Agreeing on carbon emissions is the first step in a long path that must be laid if the Sustainability movement really wants to be impactful. Hopenhagen.org will allow your voice to be heard. Those of us who are interested in Sustainability have been doing what we can in helping make the world more sustainable. Today, everyone has an opportunity to tell our political leaders how we really feel. This could be our last chance to have a worldwide unified agreement on carbon emissions. It is time for the real deal, sign the petition.
Social networks have taken over how we communicate. Hopenhagen.org is using this interconnectedness to help spread the hope. We must use our social networking platforms to start spreading the hope to get as many people as possible to sign the petition. You can become a fan on facebook, follow them on twitter @Hopenhagen, and check them out on Youtube. The Hopenhagen passport facebook application allows you to start earning stamps by spreading the hope in different ways to your friends and family.
