Sudden public awareness of "climate change" has been reinforced by social networking on the internet. Facebook and Youtube are mostly videopal clubs, without content other than "I'm cool, you're cool, let's chill". But other sites are launching hot political and social movements -- for example, Wikipedia's SustDev portal and its links, WiserEarth, Canadian Young Friends CYFYM website, British Young Friends' YQspace, American YF sites, World Gathering of Young Friends blog, Live Earth, Takingitglobal, Youthlink, 2people and One World.net. Who is included? Who should be? Who is ignored or left out? Take a look at them, and let us know what you think TME could do...
