Choosing Our Future

I mentioned Stuart's cartoons before, but i thought this one hit the nail on the head.

While some short-sighted companies and politicians put off action, things do have to change. The sooner we start, the easier it will be - rather than acting like the uni student attempting a 4000-word assignment the night before it's due.

Or as George Monbiot describes it (on SBS's Dateline):
The party is going to end one way or another. So, we either recognise that and try to forestall the tremendous disruption that will be caused, by engineering a soft landing, or we wait like rabbits in the headlight for the truck to run us over.
