BURNING AWAY OUR FUTURE
It was startling to think about the way we use (I think a better phrase might be "abuse") fossil fuels.I think we must be burning away our future.
IN IT TOGETHER
I spent all day yesterday at the conference center. Even after the sessions ended, I stayed around and chatted with anyone I could find.
One thing that surprised me: I was hearing the same problem over and over again. Lyme disease, meningitis, cholera, West Nile virus, hanta virus, avian flu ... so many countries were dealing with these diseases showing up in places they had never been seen before, and showing up in huge numbers. The Kenyan mission presented their story, too ... about malaria in their upland regions, just as Dr. Pascual had said in her research.
I was surprised so many of us faced the same situation, no matter where we lived.
Check out these web sites to find out more about malaria, climate change, and the connection between the two.
