[Who knows what motivated the change in the President’s thinking?
Perhaps it was because of the shame of bringing world leaders to view for themselves what many Americans have come to understand are credible grounds for his impeachment and a manifest demonstration of America’s embarrassment on a scale rarely witnessed before in modern history.]
[Or perhaps it was the ridicule that erupted in the American press that changed his mind.]
[It is a bit of a mystery — apparently, even to his closest staff members — as to what considerations enter into the decisions the President of the United States is making at this moment.
Or perhaps the decision had something to do with the difficulties the President was having with the military and his staff was beginning to hear about from sources like the world-wide transmission of the BBC’s Newshour. ]

Welcome to Transition Studies. To prosper for very much longer on the changing Earth humankind will need to move beyond its current fossil-fueled civilization toward one that is sustained on recycled materials and renewable energy. This is not a trivial shift. It will require a major transition in all aspects of our lives.
This weblog explores the transition to a sustainable future on our finite planet. It provides links to current news, key documents from government sources and non-governmental organizations, as well as video documentaries about climate change, environmental ethics and environmental justice concerns.
The links are listed here to be used in whatever manner they may be helpful in public information campaigns, course preparation, teaching, letter-writing, lectures, class presentations, policy discussions, article writing, civic or Congressional hearings and citizen action campaigns, etc. For further information on this blog see: About this weblog. and How to use this weblog.
