The Green Knight [userpic]
Welcome to climate_action

There's nothing to see right now. As in, absolutely nothing. In the beginning was only darkness, and an idea. It is an idea in the state of growth, and over the next week, I shall produce some initial content, strategies, icons, and, and, and.

For now, I shall simply post the paragraph I put in the community user info:

I want this community to be a place where climate change issues can be discussed - causes, effects, solutions. No tip too small or trivial - if everybody on the planet switches off unwanted lights, it *will* make a difference.

The ground rules are:

- If you don't believe humanity contributes to climate change, go and find another forum
- we're not all doomed. This place is for finding solutions, not bewailing the fate of the planet. Much less that of Mother Earth.
- even if antropogenic contributions were small or negligible in comparison to what we would get anyway, cleaning up our act (and air, and water, and soil) is a good thing anyway
- No advertising, where 'advertising' is defined as 'buy this product, it's kewel'. Discussion of energy-efficient heating, transport, cooling, or other technologies is allowed (and even encouraged), brand names and URLs will be tolerated, *but only* if the post is related to a discussion. Appropriateness will be determined by a very simple formula: if the amount of quoted material (advertising speak from promotional material) outweighs the amount of new content, it will be considered to be inappropriate for this forum.
