The following was written by Jennae of Green Your Decor. I think Diane is an amazing woman, and although I haven't read her book, I love her blog. She was also the interviewee of one of my favorite Fake Plastic Fish posts. I'm endorsing Diane for the Huffington Post's contest to send one citizen ambassador to Copenhagen, and I hope you'll take a few minutes to read more about Diane and then to head over to the Huffington Post to vote for her.
The potentially monumental climate talks in Copenhagen are upcoming, and it's important to have a real person there to represent the interests of "regular" people who care about the environment.
My friend, author, green blogger, fellow Green Moms Carnival member, and environmental activist Diane MacEachern (http://greenwoman.typepad.
If the name seems familiar, it is because Diane is the best-selling author of "Big Green Purse," a manual all of us should have on our shelves to refer to while navigating the often confusing world of green issues and green business. As a mother, she is particularly commited to the health of children, and she is a tireless activist and fantastic writer. Her interest in climate change comes from a deep sense of compassion and commitment to social justice. It would be so great to have one of our own representing the interests of real people among the politicians and "experts" meeting together this month to determine the fate of the Earth.
