Keep on Keeping on with Climate Change Policy

The New York Times had an interesting article this weekend about the various efforts toward developing sound climate change policy around the world.  The point of the article is that the world's major economies are making significant and quiet efforts toward reducing dirty energy sources.  While much needs to be done, there is still hope to reverse the impacts we are already feeling and much is being put in place to deal with the issue.

I've always been an optimist on the adaptation of humans to climate change.  However, I am a realist.  While I know that we are currently not doing enough to mitigate the impacts of increased carbon emissions, I know that there are technologies available to us to improve the current situation.  We are moving in the right direction.  But, we need to continue to press for the implementation of new technologies and policies.
