I would say it is very hard to tell if it the flavor of the times or new challenge we truly need to overcome. It certainly seems that something must be done in order to help mitigate the problems that we are facing climate wise. But at the same time it can be difficult gathering appropriate and correct information. I think 2009 will be a time that really sees this issue come more full circle for this issue. I prescribe to an "it's never to late" mentality. So everything that can be done to help those in the future is welcomed by me even if a better outcome would have been seen by previous involvement. I feel it is always good to "pay it forward" type approach when dealing with future generations. That's my 2 cents at least.
