    Apr 16 2011: We need more good news from the world. It the media could take their responsibility as educators a bit more serious we hopefully could see some changes. I think the best example are the months before the UN Climate Conference COP15 in Copenhagen 2009. Media from around the world joined the discussions and we had the embryo for a global movement in a couple of weeks.

    But then the conference itself was a big failure and we didn't reach the tipping point at that time. Hopefully we can see the same actions from the media soon again, maybe before the Earth Summit in Rio 2012.
