Chemicals; out of control?
Today, as a coincidence, I watched the movie "Submission -in defence of the unborn", the same day as the Nobelprize in chemistry was annonced. You can read more about the movie in the link: (there is an english version). Two days ago there was annonced that Robert G won the Nobelprize in Medicine, battled societal and establishment resistance to his development of the in vitro fertilization procedure, which has so far led to the birth of around 4 million people. The later discovery will be well needed if you listen to the message in the movie with less functional men in the future, not able to breed any more due to the hormon disrupting chemicals we have all around us. The documentary manage to transform the general problem with chemicals to the personal dilema for a mother.

Re-start in Tianjin, China

Today, delegates gather in China to try to come back on track in the negotiations again for next meeting in Cancun in November-December. Anyone who have lost faith in the outcome of these globetrotter negotiations? Since the Climate changes was recognized in a broad manor in the beginning of 2006, delegates from the nations have gathered in different parts of the world to become agreed upon actions to mitigate the Climate changes. So far the outcome of these “events” have been very poor.
