Montreal (Canada) - Weeks after the devastating South Asian tsunami, the news continues to be of abnormal weather conditions afflicting the globe: violent storms, excessive snowfalls, yet more natural disasters. Our world is in meteorological turmoil.

Is it the impact of the tsunami that has momentarily made us care about the planet we live on? Or finally provoked us realizing the fate of humanity and its relationship with the Earth are inextricably intertwined?

The demands of increasing energy consumption have placed the delicate balance of the forces of Nature in peril. Hunger and malnutrition already kill thousands of children around the world and as severe climate changes induce even worse droughts and floods, massive crop losses will only exacerbate this sad situation.

What can we do about it, apart from donating money to victims of these calamities? We must all do what we can to raise the general level of consciousness about this potentially catastrophic problem. This is where the media can play an important role. And this is why Icograda and IdN have jointly decided to publish a book dedicated to this important course.
