Pitting the natural environment against the human-invented economy and placing higher value on the latter is foolish.

Resolving the problem of climate change will cost, but it will be much more expensive to follow the defeatist advice of industry shills, whose greed and lack of care for humanity will condemn our children and grandchildren to an uncertain future.
The science is clear: human-caused climate change is the most pressing threat to humanity, and we must work to resolve it. We don’t have time for debunked conspiracy theories.
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.
Environmental Commissioner of Ontario releases a report on the opportunities and challenges of increasing soil carbon and building healthy soils.
Unless we rein in greenhouse gas emissions, outdoor skating in parts of Canada could be history within the next 50 to 100 years.
Canada’s tar sands ranked fifth of the 14 largest carbon intensive projects in the world, according to a new report from Greenpeace International.
Every year that we stall makes it more costly and challenging, with increasing negative impacts on humans and our environment.
