Recently we discussed this subject in great detail and one Think Tanker came up with a most intriguing question; Can We Instill Moral Sensibility into the Masses to Prevent Global Climate Change?
Of course this assumes that mankind is causing climate change and we can do something about it. Moral Sensibility is a heavy notion and will the masses actually adopt such a stance personally to clean the air and water and remain a low-impact on the environment?
Are the populations of the world morally sensible, as all too often exert our morals over other cultures without understanding that one size doesn't fit all.

We need to stop linear thought and come up with rational solutions, which will work. Perhaps our leaders need to use the Human Knowledge MindMap to better come up with the answers that fit the problem;
Meanwhile maybe you have the answers to solving the issues which plague mankind as well. If so, do let us all know and speak up and live a carbon free life your self. I hope this article propels thought in 2007.
