  1. Is the photo the Mayan Ruins at Tulum?  Looks like it might be, but the cliff seems too low.  What is it?

  2. on my screen… mail, DD, tulum, jupiter pic (wallpaper), a Uninterruptible Power Supply that I need to buy, and this one at Common Dreams Saving Copenhagan which I suggest you go peek, buhdy …

    There is a way that the United States can become a positive force to move the international climate negotiations forward, but it will require a tectonic shift in the administration’s approach. The view that domestic legislation establishes the outer boundary for U.S. climate commitments is widely held and uncontroversial. It is also deeply and dangerously wrong. Obama is not required to act like a deliveryman, simply accepting what Congress offers and passing it on to his negotiators. He can and should instead adopt a climate strategy that bypasses the legislative morass.

    Obama must frankly admit that the politics of the U.S. Senate are a threat to international agreement in Copenhagen. His climate team should publicly announce a short term CO2 emissions goal strong enough to reinvigorate the stalled U.N. climate negotiations, far deeper cuts than those envisaged by Congress, and commit to using every tool in the national workshop to achieve that goal, including Environmental Protection Agency action using the Clean Air Act. Individual states must be encouraged to establish strong greenhouse gas regulations and renewable energy standards of their own, and the Obama administration should offer the backing of the EPA to help them do so. That action must begin now.
