I’ve been making sure all my blogger friends are signed up for Blog Action Day, but I write about the chosen topic for this year (climate change) everyday. So I thought I would share with you some of the Blog Action Day posts I am seeing from sites that normally don’t cover the issue on a regular basis.

Interesting to see their takes:
