Sorry might be too late




Still on the Copenhagen Conference, now being referred to as COP 15.

NGOs Greenpeace and Tcktcktck have created photos of current world leaders apologizing for not doing anything about the environment in the year 2020.

The question is: will anyone really be sorry?

Language note:

In the posters, Presidents Obama and Lula and other world leaders are confessing their mea culpa by saying they could have done something but they didn't.

What should they have done before in the recent past?

What should they do now?

Imagine we are in the year 2020. What would have happened if the world leaders had/had not done something about climate change when they had the chance?

those Greenpeace ads are a bit pretentious on one hand, but then again, to have effective advertising sometimes you gotta make some waves

That's right- make some waves now before the real big ones comes roaring in later.
