Now, the Avaaz movement alone has over 68 million members - not far from 1% of the world's population, which is simply staggering for a recently created citizen movement.

But time is running out, and the business community seems almost immune to changing their sacred moto, "Buy, buy, buy .... anything, but buy" and governments are for the most part, as we saw at the Glasgow conference, very soft on the issue. IT'S WE, THE MOBILIZED CITIZENS, WHO WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE...
