WITH DURBAN IN MIND 3 (Durban “live”)

Meanwhile, media interest in the subject has crashed. Dr. Robert J. Brulle of Drexel University describe a ‘collapse of any significant coverage of climate change in the [US] media. We know that 2010 was a record low year, and 2011 will probably look much the same. If the media doesn’t draw attention to the issue, public opinion will decline’.

WHAT ISN’T IN THE NEWS is the thousands of people working their a’s off in Durban

There is a dearth of information in the “Main St” press about the Durban Climate Conference IN GENERAL, NOTHING EXPECTED NOTHING GAINED. Maybe it’s “newsy” around Copenhagen, but hey, once you’ve filmed a “human sign” with 5,000 bodies in it demanding ‘climate justice’….. you’ve filmed ’em all.

PREVIOUSLY,  I have not been able to have the “live feed” which puts you in touch with the 20,000 people WHO REALLY CARE ABOUT THE FUTURE, but are portrayed in the media as dithering whimps who cannot agree, you can gaurantee that the media “lords” have their own agendas. Below is a series of film clips of people who are intelligent and well respected and are part of a global process of agreement.

THESE &  MORE can be found at ; http://oneworldgroup.org/oneclimate-newsroom They are placed randomly but ALL reflect the necessity of URGENCY. Something that is seldom portrayed in the “main st” press.

I think it’s fair to say that Canada has been “black balled” with it’s open hostility to the KYOTO PROTOCOL, along with Russia and Japan. But Canada had the TAR SANDS motive bubbling away in the wallet. The one thing about these conferences is that people who attend are pretty well educated, and aren’t so STUPID as to be fooled by “ETHICAL OIL”, or the ‘marketing’ bluster of such a poisonous industry. The E.U. is putting the “cradle to grave” “LIFE CYCLE ANALYSIS”  blowtorch to ALL FOSSIL FUELS, – SHIPPING IS VERY MUCH ON THE HITLIST – so that ALL EMISSIONS are  approached in a “scientific way”, (as is the E.U. inclusion of airline emissions) –  and pursue the ‘carbon budget’ approach explored in Europe.
