Something for the weekend

I came across this cartoon thanks to Climate Action which are a social enterprise using social media to accelerate action on climate change.  They do this first by using the same principal I believe in, which is first sharing information about climate change and what you can do to help and lead a low carbon lifestyle. They also show how you can financially support projects through the purchase of carbon credits. 

What I particularly like about Climate Action is their great array of cartoon and photos on their Facebook page and in particular their photos of Beijing's polluted air (their head quarters). When I spent a month in Shanghai and Nanjing, one of my most vivid memories was how polluted the sky was and it was a highly unpleasant experience. You couldn't tell what time of day it was and despite being there in August, you couldn't really tell what the weather was either, apart from sticky. It was heavy and oppressive both on the physical and mental health. If ever there was a better deterrent for climate change, but it is very hard to convey to people unless they've experienced it, so I was so pleased to see that Climate Action shared my sentiments as expressed below. Oh, how we take our wide blue Scottish sky for granted, get out today and get a big glup of fresh air while you still can!
