Procrastinate with TED

You can waste hours on this fascinating and stimulating site.

This was an interesting one. But really, I’ve only seen 4 so far and every single one gets you thinking. (Which is really the whole concept of TED.)

But for now, perhaps I should get back to environmental physics…

    What do you think of this new coinage as a PR term for media and readers? If you like idea, discuss one day in future blog, pro or con, get people thinking.


    In the midst of doing some reading online the other day, a certain
    phrase popped out at me from a press release from an Australian green
    group that spoke about a “safe-climate future” in an article by Ryan
    King headlined “Scientists target safe-climate future”.

    The term SAFE CLIMATE jumped out at me, as I saw its similarities to
    SAFE SEX as a PR catchword, so I began to try to formulate a way to use
    this in a good way for climate activists. I came up with the concept
    of “safe-climate lifestyle” as a term to mean living a lifestyle that
    recognizes that global warming is real and trying to leave as small a
    carbon footprint as possible and working in whatever ways one feels
    are important to help mitigate the problems we are now facing.

    So a question to those reading this blogpost: for feedback. Does this have a good ring
    to it, sound good, should we try to make this term popular among green
    activists and the media?

    As in: “Local citizens gather to discuss
    safe-climate lifestyles” (as a headline in a local newspaper in
    Anytown, USA).

    I like it. What do you think? COMMENTS BELOW APPRECIATED OR EMAIL ME at danbloom {one word, no space) in the GMAIL place. You know how that works. Go!
