Happy 2010 to everyone !

Gosh, this blog has been going on for some time, and its purposes have evolved over time, saving itself from being rendered obsolete usually at the last moment.

A friend asked whether I had any resolutions for 2010, and I didn't really have any. I guess I am the kind of person who usually will just change on a day I decided to, without needing to wait for the end of the year. I was talking to B, and he decided to stop smoking a couple of days ago because he didn't have any nicotine on him handy, and just decided "okay, I guess I will stop". Hasn't had any since.

I don't know if I am grumpy about Copenhagen, or just resigned. There is too much of the blame game going on, so there is no need to add my voice to the chorus. The simple point is that there just isn't a deal that will reduce carbon emissions. The world is going to hell, so what is there for us to do, but eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die?

Earth won't sustain more than 1B in the future. But we do owe those we leave behind a better chance of survival IMHO. I try to focus on this or else things become meaningless.

PS: Besides, simple lifestyle changes can alter their present reality - http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/jan/03/peru-mountain-farmers-winter-cold
