BLOG ACTION DAY 2009 - CLIMATE CHANGE

Today, 15th October, is Blog Action Day to highlight the issues of climate change.

As bloggers we are asked to come together to blog and talk about the serious issue of climate change and how it is and will affect our world.

I am not a scientist, I am not an expert, but as a member of the human race I believe we are destroying our world in so many ways. I cannot talk about climate change with any authority so instead I'd like to direct my readers to some recent articles and reports I have read or seen.


On Channel 4 news they recently ran a report on drought in Kenya and they asked the question - is Kenya and its people 'among the first victims of climate change?'
