20:24:42  mrsdurff ->  do you have sound fun?
20:25:21  Peggy George ->  is it a question of educating people or just getting people to act on the scinece/information??
20:25:49  matt montagne ->  I think the policy is a whole different animal...
20:26:28  mrsdurff ->  what a snub

20:28:28  kcaise ->  hi everyone!
20:28:31  mrsdurff ->  i need more coffee
20:28:42  Peggy George ->  politics are so frustrating!!
20:29:07  Peggy George ->  seems like we need to get things out of the committees!!
20:29:18  mrsdurff ->  the politicians are the really frustrating ones
20:29:23  mrsdurff ->  hi stefan
20:30:13  matt montagne ->  hello Stefan...welcome to the opening hour of Earthcast 2010!
20:30:28  mrsdurff ->  clean coal is one of those oxymoronic statements
20:30:31  matt montagne ->  Jason has to give a TED Talk I think!
20:30:48  Peggy George ->  I agree Matt!
20:31:10  matt montagne ->  I agree Durff...clean and coal don't belong in the same sentence
20:31:30  derrallg ->  there are cranes everywhere and no single story buildings
20:32:08  matt montagne ->  please think of questions you might have for Jason and enter them in the chat
20:32:34  matt montagne ->  staggering
20:32:48  mrsdurff ->  Is there population really increasing that much?
20:32:57  mrsdurff ->  yes
20:32:58  Peggy George ->  hearing great
20:33:03  shoemap ->  yes
20:33:52  mrsdurff ->  wb stefan
20:34:08  stefan ->  thx
20:35:06  derrallg ->  How close or different will China's growth and cleaning up of their environment be like what the US went through?
20:35:20  mrsdurff ->  so it's really OUR carbon footprint, isn't it?
20:35:31  matt montagne ->  thanks Durff and Derrall for your questions...
20:35:53  Peggy George ->  so true and Americans are huge consumers!!
20:36:09  matt montagne ->  so much posturing...incredible
20:36:13  mrsdurff ->  Catch 22
20:37:07  matt montagne ->  jason's thesis here is pretty compelling...the link b/t the US and China is so strong
20:37:24  Peggy George ->  makes it seem so hopeless! I'm listening for Jason to give us the hopeful news about things we can do to make a difference--if there are things!!
20:38:32  matt montagne ->  welcome to Earthcast 2010, Angela!
20:38:32  Durff ->  hi angela
20:38:40  angela ->  hi guys!
20:38:53  Durff ->  actually, I'm a girl
20:38:56  angela ->  haha
20:38:56  matt montagne ->  you're joining our keynote in progress...our keynoter is Jason Czarneski and he is joining us from south china
20:39:03  angela ->  cool
20:39:25  Peggy George ->  regulations and enforcement are very intersting points! do we have any "teeth" when it comes to enforcement?
20:39:25  matt montagne ->  welcome chla!
20:39:27  Durff ->  hi chia
20:40:00  chla ->  hi
20:43:11  shoemap ->  I'd like to hear Jason's thoughts about the data from the UK lab that has become so politicized in the US. So many people don't believe that humans have a big role in climate change.
20:44:13  matt montagne ->  me too, Pam...I'll ask that
20:47:22  JL ->  In the States (and in some of our classrooms) there are those who doubt the Greenhouse Effect and its human cause.  How about China and other BASIC countries?
20:47:29  Peggy ->  lost my connection! had to change browsers
20:47:32  Durff ->  just lost all bandwidth - ah those teens and their bandwidth hoggers
20:47:49  Peggy ->  no teenagers her to blame it on!
20:47:58  Peggy ->  here
20:49:47  Peggy ->  if people don't "believe" in the greenhouse effect they think it excuses them from having to make any changes
20:50:00  Durff ->  exactly
20:51:37  shoemap ->  wow. all three have on a tie!
20:52:06  Peggy ->  what a great story!!
20:53:18  Peggy ->  and we tend to listen to people who are saying what we agree with :-)
20:53:39  kcaise ->  jeff too?
20:53:59  kcaise ->  didnt know this was a formal event
20:54:15  matt montagne ->  welcome susan!
20:54:51  Durff ->  hi elizabeth
20:55:32  Durff ->  How quickly?
20:56:49  Peggy ->  it's the information overload in the US that he mentioned that is such a problem--people think that there is so much conflicting information that there is no reason for them to act on it
20:57:01  Durff ->  indeed
20:57:23  Durff ->  we need to live more simply so others may simply live
20:58:16  matt montagne ->  fairly similar to the US...we generally recognize climate change is a problem, but we don't want to negatively impact growth...
20:58:19  Durff ->  40%
20:58:28  Durff ->  that's a lot
20:59:01  Peggy ->  how likely is that to happen? carbon taxation?
21:00:00  Peggy ->  very persuasive presentation Jason!! Thank you!
21:00:14  Durff ->  Where can we purchase this book?
21:00:26  Durff ->  Does he Twitter?
21:00:39  Durff ->  Is it on Amazon?
21:00:47  Peggy ->  Everyday Environmentalism! what a great title!
21:00:50  matt montagne ->  not yet durff
21:01:09  stefan ->  Congrats on the book Jason. Good stuff, Jeff!
21:01:32  matt montagne ->  that is a badly needed research project
21:01:39  Peggy ->  we'll be watching for the tweets on the release of the book!
