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, […]

Should Canada Trump Its Carbon Reduction Plan?

Should Canada Trump Its Carbon Reduction Plan?

The election of Donald Trump and a climate-denial administration is worrisome for the climate movement and the future of the Paris Agreement. Given that Trump vows to reverse President Obama’s climate actions, should Canada pull back on its carbon reduction plan? This article consists of excerpts from the Citizens’ Climate Lobby editorial packet of January […]

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.

This book is a […]

The Artful Deception of Climate Consultation

I’m pleased to welcome Monica Woodley, an ordinary citizen (like millions of us), who has been inspired by her grandchildren to become a climate warrior. I spoke with Monica on the phone recently. We agreed that our current government under the leadership of Justin Trudeau has made a mockery of the democratic practice of consultation, reducing it […]

The Inescapable Costs of Climate Change

The Inescapable Costs of Climate Change

I’m pleased to add Clare Demerse as a contributor to BoomerWarrior.Org. In this first article Clare explores the inescapable costs of climate change. She wonders if Canada should avoid the potential impact of taking a leadership role on carbon pricing ahead of the United States. (Rolly Montpellier~Editor for BoomerWarrior). With climate skeptic Donald Trump moving into the White House […]

Carbon Insanity! Trudeau Now Cheerleader-in-Chief for Oilsands

Carbon Insanity! Trudeau Now Cheerleader-in-Chief for Oilsands

It turns out to be two pipelines — Kinder Morgan and Enbridge Line 3 — and the LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) project in BC for a national carbon price. And so, carbon insanity prevails as Trudeau becomes the cheerleader-in-chief of the fossil fuel industry in Canada. Source: Canadian Business, July 21, 2016. In 2012 Trudeau […]

If You’re In A Hole, Just Stop Digging

If You’re In A Hole, Just Stop Digging

If you’re in a hole, stop digging, is the phrase that best summarizes the ominous message of The Sky’s Limit, the Oil Change International (OIC) report released in September. I, and dozens of Citizens’ Climate Lobby colleagues, will convey that same message to Members of Parliament and Senators when we lobby on Parliament Hill in Ottawa in the coming days. […]
