prospects in the field
are incredibly high
, recent trends, such as "tools grow[ing] more advanced"
(see Adobe Flash Builder

) have had people wondering over the past few years if computer science has much room for growth left. Some question whether it is alive.
Others, such as Carnegie Mellon
, say not so fast. In any case, employment has been a bit iffy
). There is the possibility that Computer Science is simply growing up (PDF)
, then again the U of Florida decided to say good bye to it this past week.

The World Summit on Sustainable Development,
aka "Earth Summit II," will start soon in Johannesburg, ten years after the Rio Earth Summit
. Have things improved at all in the last ten years?
While there are some reasons to be optimistic
, the data isn't cheerful. Our climate is growing unstable
; tens of millions are dying or likely to die
, and hundreds of millions more likely to be made refugees, because of environmental pollution and degraded ecosystems; and half the plants and animals on the planet seem headed for extinction
over the next century. In short, things are grim.
What steps, big or small, are you taking to do your part for the environment?
