Readers hit back at Sophomoric Province Newspaper

Seems we weren't the only ones who found the Vancouver Province newspaper's “look at the bright side of global warming” editorial on October 3rd more than a little immature.

Letter Published: Thursday, October 05, 2006

The bright side of climate change?
What is your editorial board smoking?
I too dream of palm trees and endless summer. However, I'm not deluded into believing that global warming will deliver any such thing. Droughts, flooding, extreme weather events, extinctions, desertification and rising ocean levels are all likely. It's long past the time for minimizing the state of our weather and environment, and I'm disappointed to see The Province continuing to do so. Your subscribers deserve better.

We wanted to let our readers know that we're in the middle of a make-over, set to be unveiled in the next few weeks.

Over the past nine months, we've outgrown our existing site. Our traffic is up, our archives are growing and we need to make some functional changes if we hope to continue improving the blog.

Sophomoric Province Newspaper Looking for a Silver Lining

In the face of a chilling caution from the Forest Products Association of Canada (that the pine-beetle infestation currently ravaging British Columbia's our forests will be followed by further pestilences brought on by warmer weather), the sage editorial staffers at the Vancouver Province newspaper have bid us to “look at the bright side of global warming.”
