COP-15 Summit on global climate change

A bit of non chess post.

As you may be aware, there is a global climate change summit happening this
December in Copenhagen, called COP-15. 192 countries will be attending this
summit, and the goal is to create a global agreement on curbing greenhouse
gas emissions. This agreement will replace the existing Kyoto Protocol,
which expires in 2012. This is the world's last chance to come to an
agreement on climate change before the Kyoto protocol expires - kind of a
big deal.

My company, Ogilvy, has been working with the United Nations to create a
grassroots movement around COP-15. Our goal is to get millions of people to
sign a petition addressed to our world leaders, asking them to take
meaningful action. That's where you come in. I'm asking all of my friends
to take 45 seconds out of their day TODAY to sign this important petition.
We must communicate to our leaders that this issue is important to us. If
they know that their constituents demand action, there's a much greater
likelihood that COP-15 will result in meaningful change with regards to
curbing greenhouse gas emissions.

If you have not yet signed the petition I urge you to do so now at
