I am truly looking forward to the year 2007. There seems to be renewal everywhere and it isn't spring yet. I am very impressed with Stephane Dion, he is the right person at the right time and I do beleive he will give PM SH the fight of his lifetime in the anticipated election we all expect sometime in the next 12 months.
There was a news story on CBC of which I caught a snippet when driving home from my aging mothers this afternoon.
Countries that border on the Arctic Circle are holding an Arctic Conference to discuss the loss of Ice flows and the future impact of climate change seeking solutions to slow down the warming. Followed by a story about putting up umbrellas to shield the earth from the sun, imagine 16 billion umbrellas needed to encompass the planet. It was explained by the scientist who propose's such a solution that it would take a total of 10 years to rocket umbrellas into the atmosphere at 1 million per trip... just getting a wee bit of information is very scary, it can be interperted in oh, so many different ways.
The most important thing here is that everyone is now talking about Climate Change, Global Warming, Greenhouse gases and our Environment all of which is a great way to start renewal.
