Travel Bloggers Rally Around Blog Action Day 2009

I've been astounded to see how many of the bloggers whose work I read regularly participated in Blog Action Day today. In reading through everyone's posts, I was struck by how many people said that the personal connection they made by seeing climate change first hand on their travels. The posts are fascinating, and each one showcases a different dimension of the problem. I thought I'd share some of those posts with you.
