Yvonne,

Thanks for a great post. Your timing is perfect, too. With another climate change "summit" about to happen, policy makers will be tapping their fingers and pontificating about the dire situation the world faces. Then they'll head back to their respective capitals (especially Washington, D.C.) and resume doing very little to address the issues. Meanwhile, by shifting money we're already spending (on groceries, cosmetics, clothing, cars, and more), women can encourage manufacturers to conserve energy and reduce pollution. We make a difference where we live, and have a global impact at the same time. Every "one in a million" counts.

Yvonne - thank you for adding your voice to this. I JUST got off a con call with the Nathan Cummings Foundation and American Environics. They were discussing their summer survey of voter attitudes. They concluded that even though "we" Americans are now more aware of climate change that "we" aren't doing anything about it. In fact, it's the last issue that voters think about. Consequently, it's the last issue that our current presidential group is addressing.

Further - and this is the scary part - education about climate change isn't changing attitudes. Those surveyed with higher degrees and possibly better critical thinking abilities, weren't motivated by the dire need to change quickly.

Clearly we need a better way and standards coupled with the buying action of www.BigGreenPurse.com can change everything.
