    Barry, just looking at the climate change questionaire, pity we don’t make a similar questionnaire about Occupational Health and Safety where day to day the corporations seem to be running away with all the money with little disregard for the Social and Environmental implications (pollution and work related injuries are rampant in the world).
    As a Safety Professional and Trainer, and an advocate of Defensive Driving “concepts” I will do whatever it takes to reduce the “bottom line” for preventable collisions, work related injuries and Environmental Impacts in whatever capacity I am assigned to in the company.
    Perhaps my personal philosophy will rub off on others, but my message is quite clear for all those that take the time and effort to increase there awareness, I think it is time to educate the population (and no I don’t mean “social networking”), I mean having a personal commitment to what we do for a living and as everybody is now coming to the realization that the “climate change issue” is totally misunderstood from the layman to the professional to the companies that may be taking advantage of the hype to get in on the “ground floor”. Example, why don’t more people “out of personal conviction” drive hybrid cars, I certainly plan to when I return to Canada.

    Having been in the Oil and Gas industry for 30 years, know that the Shell’s and ExxonMobil’s and BP”s of the world have control through “political” means, hence all the “lobbying” going on, which even comes to light in the LinkedIn Groups and blogs from group members.

    So back to Environmental issues, seems they are left to the companies to create Standards, with Regulatory Agencies in charge of compliance, where is the Corporate Social Responsibility in that statement?
