chapter XI on Lisbon. Sometimes, I just sit and wonder about the imagery used in this "climate war reconciliation debate". Here a comment by Steve McIntyre, who also blogs today on Lisbon: “the Team boycotted the Lisbon reconciliation workshop in order to perpetuate its fatwa against critics.” (my emphasis)
The current climate debate switches between Cold War and 'war on terror' rhetoric; indeed, reconciliation needed! One leitmotif of the Lisbon workshop was the implementation of 'non-violent conflict resolution'. Bishop Hill got the Valentine spirit of the message and sent it to Lisbon. Judith suggests to replace old war terminology through a more religious one: What about the "convinced" versus the "unconvinced"? My inner Bodhisattva reminds me that climate is not a 'versus' thing but that climate means shared unity: Om mani padme hum - we all should take a deep breath from time to time (and then go back to the blogoshpere)!
