deep green and not lime green

really am  interested to know what the G8 and the O5 can put on the table in this year’s Copenhagen Climate Change Conference. i mean hello?! history’s biggest summit on climate change should be able to see substantial cut on carbon emission by 2020 among the biggest polluters.

and the criticality of the temperature rise globally should drive them to grant support funds for other developing countries including those in G77 to afford clean technology and climate adaption.

not grand standing. not finger pointing. the world waits for realistic, truthful and unselfish deal after the summit.

we all want radical change before it’s too late, not some mediocre propositions that are not even qualified as solution.

in pursuit of qualifying my plan to practice absolute green engineering, attended the LEED Core Concept & Strategies workshop in Portland. was satisfied with the whole day interactive conference but was dismayed not to be able to get an answer whether a compromise can be met if an engineer like me, who has no experience at all in practicing in a LEED certified project, but is a also degree holder of Environmental Eng’g and more importantly is very passionate in practicing green both in her future work and her family construction business (albeit we’re really a very small entity), to take the LEED AP exam (and not just the LEED GA only).

come on?! LEED practice has just started in my country (how many companies are members of USGBC? 6? 10?), how am i suppose to meet the prerequisites in taking the exam :-( does it mean i have to work with these companies for hmmm 2 to 3 yrs so i can be qualified?

i really hope the faculty of examiners would accept my appeal. otherwise, i will not waste 2hrs of my day reading, memorizing, preparing flash cards to prepare for an actually effin expensive examination.

BUT this won’t stop me from taking the 180 degree turn in my career. will continue taking the green path come what may.

especially not after my gap year’s realization has been solidified :-)
