Read this while I work on a diatribe...

So something I haven't found so far in all of the reading I do on climate change, sustainable farming, fishing and other practices is a vision for what the future looks like. Visions and goals are very useful, as they give all of the supporters and subscribers something to look forward to and work towards.

So, that said, Bill Becker, Executive Director of Presidential Climate Action Project, has responded to the request for a vision. It may not be the perfect vision, it may not answer all the questions possible (see the comments), but at least there is one, and its been publicly stated.

Perhaps this is a very useful direction for the conversation to take. Instead of preaching doom, gloom and the general patheticness of our species, lets get a vision for where we will be in 10, 20, 30 and 40 years, then figure out how to get there. Its no different that any other target. Man on the moon in seven years, seemed insurmountable, but it happened. Automakers CAFE standards to 35mpg by 2020, okay, that doesn't even seem like that much of a challenge.
