I support it and like groups that benefit both community and environment. You can submit notices with art for free exposure in the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges regions to promote just causes. Details on the link to my site and look for "Community" in the sidebar links. This is a worthwhile portal encouraging more powerful and effective climate evaluation for change.

The self-deceit of modern man

It can only be self-deceit in our era that gives us climbing carbon dioxide but degenerating concern, increasing temperatures but diminishing temperament. While storms intensify our passion declines, while the ice melts our hearts harden, while coral succumbs to acid seas our appetites succumb to temptation. We talk more yet do less, we hold grander conferences but achieve poorer results.
Our is the era of environmental rape. We drive more and more to create higher and higher traffic in which less and less moves. Our rampant industrial footprint batters the climate, and we’re surprised when it can only respond with tsunamis. Our pride and technological power rises without restraint, and we’re surprised when islands sink. As polls for action slide down, the planet heats up.
We have childishly challenged those messengers whose dedication to perceiving danger should earn our endless gratitude and support. Yet some are still blind to the inescapable light of inquiry after inquiry, from which truth is manifest, unendingly yelling foul even as they become what they utter. Cheer for real climate scientists who understand the real climate!

I do not know if you have any petitions for this, if so advise me. Also I do not know if you are aware already of a web site www.care2.com which alerts people worldwide of such stories and also allows the opportunity to start petitions for same and can generate many signatures worldwide. There is one there at present for koala colonies in southern Qld.
