serious change

My friend Francis has launched Serious Change, an initiative to represent UK citizens who want climate change to be taken as seriously as it deserves to be, and who believe it can be an opportunity and not just a threat. As a MySociety dude, Francis knows a thing or two about getting people engaged via useful websites.

Francis rightly points out that climate change is not a partisan issue. Nor is it a ‘green’ issue. It affects us all. It's not just another environmental problem. It changes everything. Individual, voluntary action will not solve it — even the Confederation of British Industry is calling for the government to legislate (and is in the meantime getting proactive). Furthermore, what we do (or don't do) about it now can seriously affect how things turn out.

Given the urgency and magnitude of the problem, why don't we seem to be taking serious action?

If you feel similarly, I urge you to join in.
