Researchers receive $500,000 in CANARIE funding to link environmental information about the North.
Actions to prevent global warming will lead to livable communities, improved air quality and protection of natural spaces.
Pitting the natural environment against the human-invented economy and placing higher value on the latter is foolish.
The scientific evidence is overwhelming: climate change is here, and unless we curb behaviours that contribute to it, it will get worse.
A clean energy revolution is already underway and, as the world comes to grips with the need to change, it will inevitably spread.
All nuclear power remains expensive, unwieldy and difficult to integrate with intermittent renewables – and carries risks for weapons proliferation.

Alberta Climate Dialogue is recruiting participants for February 22 event at the University of Lethbridge.
University of Calgary professor co-authors a global reindeer and caribou population analysis that offers some worrisome conclusions.
We’re exhausting Earth’s finite resources and pushing global ecosystems to tipping points. The only hindrance to developing a fair, ambitious and legally binding climate plan for the world is lack of political will.
Scientists are more certain now than in 2007 that humans are largely responsible for global warming, and that it’s getting worse and poses a serious threat to humanity.
Rather than rationalizing our continued use of fossil fuels in the false belief that technology will enable us to carry on with our destructive ways, we really need governments, scientists and industry to start taking climate change and greenhouse gas emissions seriously.
