British Columbians share the concerns of Alaskans about risks to the environment from mining operations and most want to see tougher mining laws and regulations...
In a recent call-in portion on an Ottawa late-night call-in show, Tom Harris, executive director of the energy industry front group, the Natural Resources Stewardship Project (NRSP), offers up some laughable quotes:
Harris: “There was 100 people that appeared in the [government of Canada's] Clean Air Act hearings that just wrapped up and I went through the list and there wasn't a single doubter out of 100 people, that was questioning the science of climate change.”
The NRSP is a coalition whose leadership includes about half of the last handful of climate scientists of note who reject global warming as a “myth.”
Ironically, they realize their position is so out of the mainstream, they have to use a name that not only belies their true purpose but in fact implies they are environmentalists.
