16. Thanks for the graphic, Turborama, it's interesting that the UAE
have done so little, so far anyhow, as they are a pretty wealthy country. Hopefully more will be forthcoming.

I just checked out your other thread, I had not seen it 'til now.

It is kind of remarkable how little attention this story gets, not just from the International community, but as you say, even on blogs.

Your OPs have been excellent, in fact I just mentioned you in a post upthread and I hope I did not misrepresent what you said the other day, about Global Warming and what is happening to the planet.

Keep up the good work, people may not be commenting but I think they are reading.

As someone upthread said, we are all shell-shocked. There are so many disasters and tragedies. So I guess people do not know what to say anymore.
