gdd-from-350Today is Global Divestment Day, which has the attention of Big Oil. Here’s a spoof. And here’s a write-up: ‘Earlier this week, the fossil fuel industry launched a concerted counter-attack on the divestment movement, only to have their efforts fall rather flat.

By implementing restrictions now … Ontario will have a head start in the transition to safer alternatives.’

Corn-In-DroughtThe precautionary principle [writes Suzuki] requires that where there is threat of serious or irreversible harm to human health or the environment, the absence of complete scientific certainty or consensus must not be used as an excuse to delay action… Let’s hope today’s decision-makers have a better grasp of [it].’
