As the avid reader of the blog will already know, the fight against the Climate Change means Cultural Change as a first step to a ecological society.

Our culture at present is obviously responsible for the situation we are all in. And no one wants to change it, because most of us people are very comfortable as it is.

A change of culture would mean that every one of us would have to reevaluate his or her values, our way of live.

Culture is the sum of all people, including you and me!

Is the reason for our reluctance because every change means a certain amount of uncertainty?

But the uncertainty of a cultural change is less frightening then the possibility of a Climate Change.

The challenge is not the future ecological society but the phase of transition.

Either humanity finds the means to make the transition as soft as possible or the results will be terrible and the goal will not be reached.

The technology exists already. That those technologies, as the TOTEM System, are not utilized depends on our cultural outlook.

Because we always look with a limited perspective. We look ahead and forget to look 360degrees.

Everyone can start doing something in his or her town.

The first step could be a Loan Guaranty Fund!

    What affect will climate change have on our society as we know it? This question poses considerable analytical problems for governments around the world. We are increasingly a coastal species, 44% of the world’s population (8 billion) or 3.1 billion people live within 150 km (ca.100 miles) of the coast. This is more people than inhabited the entire planet in 1950. when considering ‘climate change society’, what do we think about the moral responsibility of various nations towards climate change, and does this vary between countries? Will climate change impact differently on men and women?

    Thank you Mr. Max for the great site and efforts.

    Thank you NESSEQ for the great site, for us the debate on climate change is over. We are tackling the challenges of a new energy future. We continue to develop technologies to reduce CO2 from our operations and to produce more efficient fuels and lubricants for customers. We are calling on governments to establish policies that will encourage a reduction in CO2 emissions.

    Dear Nesseq .. keep moving with your holy work.
    PEOPLE should get the message.

    we are rapidly approaching major climate change and the effects on society and the environment could be quite severe. Geographers predict that within the next eighty years, climate zones could shift and some could completely vanish; which means current world climate zones could change, dictating where crops will be grown.

    Polar Regions should be the first to go while tropical regions get even hotter, forcing animals to migrate north. Climate changes like these could very well lead to the spread of diseases such as dungy fever and malaria into more northern regions. Tropical storms and hurricanes will not only increase but may also become more intense. If the changes manifest too quickly, it is feared that animal and plant species may not be able to adapt fast enough and could become extinct.
