a barrage of letters

If YOU feel the urge to write to the papers, I think a barrage of letters -to all our newspapers – at this time - might be helpful, whether or not all get printed – they all get read.

You – on these groups – are amazing people and a post bag full of short sharp sensible letters must surely help?

The harder challenge is to get something like this into FT (longer syllables) and The Sun (shorter :0) but it can be done - and the act of trying will influence the papers?

It also feels good.

Here is my affort:

How will our "world leaders" explain to our children, in a decade, what on Earth they were thinking of at Copenhagen in December 2009? If they opt to fail us, history will trace climate Armageddon back to that moment. If they can't or won't lead, then they must make way for someone who will, and who will do right by the children of the world.

If they (again) "put off" sealing a binding global deal, they will be putting millions to death, by dither and delay. If on the other hand, they succeed, against the odds, and pull off a real deal, history will remember them for eternity, for the bold leadership they found, out of the blue, when planet Earth needed it most.
