The Bush administration's unwillingness to make real changes in terms of emissions cuts has forced a second wave of Americans to take to the skies, their videophones and their computers to let the world know that many of us are committed to real change and that, in 2009, that change will come. One of those Americans is the governor of my own state, Arnold Schwarzenegger. (I am proud to be a Californian!) He will be addressing the assembled dignitaries by video-link and assuring them that a number of the states are ready to take action without the federal government. We can only hope that he'll show up to the conference like this and force the Bush administration to come to terms with the rest of the world.
In the meantime, if you would like to let the world know that George Bush does not represent you on climate change, sign this.
