The Arctic Ice Melt

The extreme weather conditions we've been experiencing in the UK and Italy - caused apparently by a freak jet stream position - are explained in a Guardian article by George Monbiot.  What it says is chilling and it agrees with the known facts.  This isn't scare-mongering.  It's real. But it also makes me feel very helpless.  What can any of us do in the face of global commercial and governmental interests?

  1. It is frightening.
    However, I am a bit more optimistic than I was a year or two ago.
    There are a few new technologies at pilot plant stage including one that has the promise to replace crude oil with sustainable alternatives that won't use all our farm land. Best still they look to be commercially profitable. Fingers crossed
