10n10: Réduire des gaz à effet de serre par 10% en 2010!
Je désire un bénévole pour traduire les materiaux ici en français. Sans cette assistance,
il sera quelque semaines ou mois pour moi de le faire.
I have been following the climate change debate for some years now, and both from personal
experience over the past 40 years, and reading on the subject, I am convinced that something
is up with the weather, and our climate. I've grown fond of the relative climate stability
over the past 10 millennia or so, and I think it would be best for the survival of the human
species if we tried to maintain it into the future.
Unfortunately, given the inaction achieved by COP15 in Copenhagen last month, it seems
clear that my government is not representing my view or interests in the matter.
My New Year's Resolution for 2010 is to reduce my greenhouse gas emissions by 10%.
I have been working on this for some years now, so an additional 10% may not be as
easy for me as it might be for others. Still, I intend to do it.
I recognize that my efforts for one year won't solve the problem. I don't intend to
stop at the end of the year. If a lot of other people join me, then together, we can make
a noticeable difference.
Here's my objective for this Web site: to provide others with a source of information
so they can also reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by 10% in 2010. I hope to make this
as painless as possible for most, as few of us are interested in reducing our quality of life.
Most days, I hope to provide a daily tip, some useful information, motivation or inspiration.
It's taken me a few days to get the domain and set up the site structure and landing page,
so I'm already behind. Not to worry, I'll catch it up shortly.
This site will focus primarily on the Canadian perspective, but I expect the information
presented will be of value elsewhere.
I am not the repository of all relevant information, so assistance from others will always
be welcome. Just send it along.
Here's to a prosperous, rewarding and lower emissions 2010!
