Fears and desires

I am watching the news streaming onto my screen, into my room and into my mind from Copenhagen. I cannot help being affected - stirred and moved by the countless campaigns, publicity spots, debates, demonstrations, and the common desire expressed by millions, to achieve something together - at last!
It is high time to get rid of our selfishness and egocentric attitudes on every level. Globalisation is real in every single term - no individual citizen, no individual country or economy can escape a global ecological, economic and political crisis created by the thoughtless exploitation of our resources and by the inability of governments to understand one another, to accept the reasoning of one another. No escape, unless ... unless a global attitude change towards the Earth is achieved.
Yes, it is high time for the wealthy world to remember that they had a long period in the past to develop as they wished and could - and at a price that the others had to pay. It is time to give something back of what has been taken.

This past summer the Hungarian students of the ClimaSOS project visited their friends in Cyprus. They could gain first hand experience on a beautiful an livable country and rich culture. As I see these happy smiles, I can only hope for a future for them when they can meet again without having to fear from losing nature's beauties but being able to show their children what they inherited from the decision makers of today.

CLIMATEGATE: what is the true?

In science is very important to listen, read, interpret and discuss the different scenarios that arise on a subject.
What scientists say about climate change? There are the alarmists, the moderates and those with ideas contrary to the majority. Who is right? We don’t know!
Here's some links so we can reflect on these issues:

The great climate change science scandal
Media Missing the Plot on ‘Climate Gate’: It’s the Fraud, Stupid!
Mitos Climáticos
O escândalo do 'Climategate' e a Conferência de Copenhaga

One thing is TRUE: it is essential that all citizens of the world have a positive attitude towards the planet ... you need to save resources ... we have to make a house habitable for future generations ... SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT IS INDISPENSABLE.

Spectacular World Map

In the website "Breathing Earth" you will be able to access to very interesting data from all the world, such as the CO2 emissions and the birth and dead rates.

For that, you just need to put the mouse over the different countries. In this way, you can see what is the reality of your own country and also the other's.

National eTwinning competition

On May 22, 2009 13 members of the Hungarian ClimaSOS team travelled to Budapest. Each participating team had 30 minutes to report on their project. Among other things, we spoke about the Calendar, the Dictionary, "From Pillow to Pillow", the ClimaSOS website, the publicity spots, the Twinspace, our blog and the ClimFormázás eltávolítása a kijelölésbőlaWeek in March 2009. And of course we mentioned the visits and project meetings.
Eventually, in the secondary school category Kölcsey Gimnázium became first.
I consider this as the recognition of the two-year work, and I think of this prize as the recognition of each participating school.
