A Debate Worth Having

On September 22 2009, the United Nations met in New York to outline talks on numerous issues ranging from climate change to sustainable economic development amongst many other pressing matters. This was followed by G20 talks held in Pittsburgh, USA two days later on the global economic situation and ways forward for the global community.  

Throughout the conference of nations and coverage from the media, at least one thing can be deduced clearly; a continual debate over climate change and best way forward still lies before us all. The “Green Room” is one such sight that exemplifies this clearly. Hosted by BBC news, the “Green Room” is a news feed dedicated to not only Green Living and the sustainable debate, but also the opinions from those around the world. The most recent article “Climate change – where the center leads” hosts over 100 responses or comments posted by readers. I hope that we continue to search for answers to not only the climate change issue, but also sustainable living, renewable sources of energy and how to help developing or industrialized countries make these issues not only prominent but also economically rewarding.

It is only through healthy and continual debates that we may best reach answers to these pressing matters. If you have yet to join the conversation, share an opinion, or even better a solution… now would be that time. Embrace our ability to communicate and change our future with your thoughts over the web, radio, telephone, or dinner table. Let it be with co-workers, government representatives, and family alike for this is indeed a debate worth having.
