hi Frances

sorry, I havent got time for much of a respone, you might find these
interesting, useful and/or insulting
The Corporate Climate Coup

The Climate Hacker - LANGUAGE WARNING

my take on the great Climate Change Circus aka COP15 is looking like a
really noisy place

news from the Climate Circus

   - Climategate (leaked emails) have given climate change denialists a huge
   - a militant faction of activists (so called anarchists, probably of the
   "smash civilization" anarcho-primitivist variety) a group called NTAc (never
   trust a cop) have put out inflammatory videos - and seem to want to turn Dec
   into a big street battle
   - a dodgy Carbon Trading regime has just been passed in Australia
   - the shadow banking system will have a field day establishing a global
   climate finance architecture
   - the Climate Camp TV crew, may or may not, be at Klimaforum
   - Climate Change is real and getting worse

through this noise, I am trying to raise funds, find accomodation and most
importantly focus on the Klimaforum09 coverage

I am trying to focus on the Planetary Permaculture Saving the World angle..

thats my take on Copenhagen
