Dear Listers,
	Now that we have exhausted all the rhetoric and have cleared our minds 
and consciences, might it be possible to translate our feelings into 
actions that could be accomplished at the scales of Global, regional, 
and local?

lease post your comments if you’d like to contribute and I will work 
towards collating them……………Please try to keep things short (and perhaps 

Here are a few possibilities:

	Global -
		US should sign the Kyoto Accord,
		Reduce generation of African Dust
	Regional in the Caribbean
		Large scale culture and release of Diadema antillarum
		Construct a basin-wide system of no-take MPAs

		Larger no-take zones in the Florida Keys National Marine 			Sanctuary
		Construction of sewer and septic systems in the Florida 			Keys that 
actually meet design criteria for removal of 				nutrients,BOD, and 
microbial contaminants
		Provide incentives to restore the terrestrial landscape 				to 
minimize loss of nutrients and sediments
