The first walk in the snow is a yearly ritual for many Canadians. For me it marks the end of a season, swapping cycling shoes for ski boots, and brings back memories of sliding for hours after school until supper.
Last night we watched An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore’s excellent documentary on the incontestable fact of global warming. I had been avoiding it for a while because I did not want to get too depressed. I found that the film was uplifting, even with its extremely serious message, because we can do something about global warming – now. Please watch this film.
I also purchased the book World Changing, and look forward to reading about and implementing better ways of living with our only planet. Personally, I want our children to continue to enjoy many more Winters, but we are in grave danger of severe climate change. Now is the time to act and we intend to do our part.
