Thanks for your appreciation.

Yes the pictures are taken in january this year. There has been almost no snow. That worries me.

The global warming issue is not a joke. The planet can´t take more of the CO2.

We have to rely on the science community. (It is not only a "shift of paradigms")

The american petrol companies and the bush administration (not ratifying the Kyoto protocol) are the bad guys here. And the ones who drive big cars with thirsty engines (mostly americans) should take their individual responsibility.

Let´s hope That China and India will solve the problems. They will have to do so.
We still want our four seasons here in Europe and North America

We who love nature and want to share our experiences should take a part in the struggle for a better environment.

Cheers

Torgny

Torgny, not to turn this into a politcal thread, but placing hope in India and China for help in solving our environmental issues is like asking the wolves to guard the henhouse. Unfortunately, India's and China's population growth and economies have led their respective governments/industrial sectors to follow paths similar to the U.S.

Also, of the world's 6 major petrol companies, half are European-founded and based.

Besides rejecting the Kyoto protocol, Bush has also repeatedly shot down "green" legislation, despite the fact that independent polls had indicated most Americans were in support of such legislation and the majority were willing to pay somewhat higher prices for goods that were produced in pollutant-reduced facilities.

I wish the rest of the world would follow Sweden's leadership in "green".

Thanks a lot for your thoughts (and information) on this. Very much appreciated! We are many. We must work together...

PS

It came through my mind. Bob Dylan wrote quite some time ago:

"Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown......

For the times they are a-changin
"
