Canada’s New Climate Denialism: Subtle, Deceitful, Dishonest

Canada’s New Climate Denialism: Subtle, Deceitful, Dishonest

Canada has become the home of a new climate denialism, a more subtle, deceitful and dishonest version — Version 2.0. Version 2.0 is more dangerous and more sinister than the shameless denial of the last decade. It’s a new dis-ease that injects itself into the public discourse about climate change. Its primary tools are doubt, fear, alternative facts, […]

Making America Wait Again On Climate

Making America Wait Again On Climate

Writing in theguardian, George Monbiot begins his January 19th article with the phrase “make America wait again”. While he’s actually referring to Donald Trump’s energy policy, the phrase easily applies to climate policy as well. Energy and climate are inextricably interwoven. The burning of fossil fuels is the major cause of spiraling carbon emissions which […]

Canada’s Cognitive Dissonance on Climate & Energy Policy

Canada’s climate and energy policies are in a state of cognitive dissonance. Cognitive dissonance occurs when one tries to entertain two opposing ideas at the same time. This creates tension and a psychological discomfort which forces one to resort to clever and self-deluding ways to justify one’s decisions and actions. Prime Minister Trudeau’s attempt to blend climate action and […]

Unprecedented Climate Mobilization Needed Now

Unprecedented Climate Mobilization Needed Now

Unprecedented Climate Mobilization is the title of a book just released by authors Elizabeth Woodworth and David Ray Griffin. Although I’m pleased with the launch of the pan-Canadian framework for clean growth and climate change, it falls far short of the kind of climate action needed to keep our world habitable for future generations. This book is a […]

Unsettling and Ominous – Climate Alarm Bells

Unsettling and Ominous – Climate Alarm Bells

Climate alarm bells should be going off in every country, every city, every household. We are losing ground as we struggle to fight climate change and global warming. The climate action trends witnessed in 2016 are both unsettling and ominous. Without heroic — but improbable — efforts, the 2 °C world is but magical thinking.
