As many of you know, climate talks in Copenhagen are upcoming. Although the Big Boys will be there representing their interests, what about us? Can we be assure that our interests in the environment are taken into account when decisions are made? We need someone there to represent us.
Huffington Post agrees and is sponsoring a contest to send one person to Copenhagen as an ambassador. We are fortunate that one of our green moms, Diane MacEachern, has stepped up to the plate to represent us.
See her video:
Diane is not your ordinarily green mom. She is a noted author of several books and in particular, the Big Green Purse, and popular blogger. In addition, she is not a newbie to the environmental game. She has been advocating for the environment for over 20 years and was recently named one of 70 Glamour Magazine’s Eco Heroes. Not too shabby.
On a personal level what I love about Diane is she is modest beyond beliefs and down to earth. What you see is what you get. She is just like you and me. And she deeply cares about the environment and its effects on our families. I can trust her at Copenhagen.
For more information about Diane, take a look at the following links:
I am giving my endorsement to send Diane to Copenhagen, but Diane needs our help.
