  1. I just came across this blog this morning and I thank you for tallying up the results of the impact of COP15. Canada should really be doing better on this scale; however, they are holding back and waiting for the states to make our decicions for us. Sad really…

  2. The Grannies are great — all over the world! If you’re interested in their work, take a look at our new documentary — “Raging Grannies: The Action League,” about a Raging Grannies gaggle on the SF Bay Area Peninsula. These women do not go quietly into old age! They inspire us with their dedication to social justice. Winner 2009 National Mature Media Merit Award. Available for both institutional and home use.
