"The Americans keep telling us how successful their system is. Then they remind us not to stray too far from our hotel at night." - An un-named EU trade representative quoted during international trade talks in Denver, Colorado, 1997.

Winning the battle, losing the war?

Scientists, the media and politicians, by and large, have come to accept that climate change is now a reality. But while, a few significant exceptions aside, that battle appears to have been won, the fate of the war on climate change is a wholly different matter. The general public, it seems, either don't know, don't want to know or know but thus far refuse to change, as this article from the latest New Statesman makes all-too-clear.

Another by-product of the culture of individual greed cultivated by the right, largely during the 1980s, with catastrophic results for humanity and the planet. Information Landmine is, sadly, not surprised.
