Blog Action Day 2009 will be upon us later this week — Thursday, Oct. 15, to be precise — and the organization behind the annual event (Change.org) wants bloggers everywhere to post something on the topic of climate change.
I doubt I’ll post anything on that date, because I’ll be contributing to climate change in my own way, by driving 190 miles, round trip, to participate in a social media summit with Brad J. Ward, Michael Stoner, Liz Allen and some other good folks. But at least I’ll be driving in a hybrid, so I’ll be using only half as much fossil fuel for that trip than I would were I still driving my previous vehicle, which was powered 100 percent by gasoline and internal combustion. (As a fellow hybrid driver once said, “I used to emit smog. Now I emit smug.” Now I’m in that club.)
But, I do plan to post something — either right before Blog Action Day (if I get my act together) or immediately afterward.
Are any of you other higher ed bloggers planning to post something about global warming on Blog Action Day? Let me know.
