Tipping point in climate change debate symbolized by Time article

In a Time special double issue (April 9 2007) devoted to 'The Global Warming Debate' a set of '51 things you can do to make a difference' are outlined. Suggestions range from purchasing to planning - some appear as technical magic bullets, and little is said about overall consumption levels, but the piece is symbolic of where most of the world is at - no longer debating what climate change is, but how to address it. I wonder if decision makers in the US and Australian governments have read it? Given recent criticism of the Australian government stance by ACF (Australian Conservation Foundation) I hope so!
