How nice is the feeling, to hear some UN official on the news speaking fondly of our decision to sign the Kyoto protocol. Has been a long time since i've heard any show of respect that hasn't involved selling us out to some war or dodgy trade deal.

Brilliant to see this new government showing it's taking the environment and climate change seriously with this first act of ratifying Kyoto. Heading off to Bali with a handful of main ministers is much more impressive then the days of some unwanted sap sent to plead "nup can't do it" along with the yanks. Kind of looks like these guys want to be key players in how the world sorts this shit out.

Still feels very strange, like it didn't happen ... like recovering from some heavy bad acid, only able to heal from it and make the mind adjust to an alternative world returning a little bit at a time.

Yeah, and the lack of rah rah is refreshing.

I woke up yesterday and found that the FIRST thing he did was ratify Kyoto. No fanfair - he just did it...

LIKE IT WAS THE RIGHT THING TO DO!

Im starting to feel OK about this.
