Today (15th October) is blog action day, a day when blogger’s across the world aim to spark discussion and awareness of serious and important issues.
This year the topic is climate change, and in the run up to December’s Copenhagen Conference on Climate Change, a whole range of government figures have joined in the blogging action, from a special post from the Prime Minster on the Number 10 website to the Foreign Offices Climate Conversations which is drawing together a number of climate change bloggers from the foreign office including the foreign secretary David Miliband.
