Oz on fire

Worth taking a quick read of this update from the LA Times last week on the situation in Australia this winter (their summer) - it's been very hot and dry, and showing many of the features of what climate disruption looks like, and how it impacts human civilization, and the natural systems on which we depend.

A great gathering of MSLS alums took place down under in February for the Hallbarhet '09 event - part conference, part reunion, part sustainability learning journey - and while it was by all accounts an uplifting and positive experience, it took place with the backdrop of rampant wildfires and drought - just a real-time example to underscore the urgency we face in creating innvative strategies for sustainability... Stay going.
