Dear fellow poets we write many poems that express the way we feel about our world and its predicament well here is a chance for ALL to make a small but significant difference ..below is a copy of an email sent to me by the group approaching the UN for proper steps to eradicate Global Warming ..Please Please go to the site and sign it if not for us but for our childrens sake
"It's time for a new Kyoto Protocol to address the
growing concerns of global climate change.
And for the new Kyoto Protocol to work, every country
in the world must come together to address climate
The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate
Change meets again in June to work toward a framework
for December's critical Copenhagen Climate Conference.
With the rising threat of global warming, it's critical
that the new treaty includes strong caps on carbon
But to make it a global solution, we need to ensure
the agreement also includes funding to help developing
countries adapt to climate change. We must include the
world's poor, especially in sub-Saharan Africa, because
the consequences of global warming will
disproportionately hit Africa's poor -- even though the
crisis is clearly not of their making.
Rich countries have an obligation to immediately curb
greenhouse gas emissions and help Africa avoid the
worst effects of climate change. Yvo de Boer, the
Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework
Convention on Climate Change, is chairing the next
round of negotiations in June.
Ask Secretary de Boer to ensure the proper funding for
all countries suffering the effects of climate change >>
