Bravo to the Top 25 Green Energy Consumers

Check this great list of the top 25 U.S. consumers of green energy. It is, first of all, a tribute to some good corporate citizens like Johnson & Johnson, as well as companies that have made being green part of their business strategy (Whole Foods, Starbucks).

It's also revealing the consumer No.1 is the U.S. Air Force, which is undoubtedly more interested in the reliability of power in a crisis than in joining Whole Foods' campaign to green up the environment. It makes the point - better than we could - that alternative energy is good policy for lots of reasons, even beyond the benefit of saving the planet.

Terry Corcoran: King of Canadian Climate Change Deniers

Among major media figures in Canada, few people can claim as much credit as the National Post's Terrance Corcoran in the prolonged and woefully effective campaign to mislead the Canadian public on the science and policies regarding climate change.

As a business columnist in the Globe and Mail in the 1990s, Corcoran was reported to run shrieking into the managing editor's office any time a (well-documented) science story crept into the pages of what was then the nation's only national newspaper. As a result, the mid-level editors lived in fear and the environment reporters threw up their hands when asked why the Globe wasn't covering the story

Hot Time -- Bad Timing

Three days ago, it was revealed that Stephen Harper was joining George W. Bush in a North American death wish by withdrawing from the Kyoto process. 

Yesterday, NASA scientists announced that 2005 had topped 1998 as the hottest year on record.  In fact, one NASA researcher said it was likely that 2005 may have been the warmest in several thousand years.  While the rest of the world scrambles to patch together the barest beginnings of a survival strategy, it seems clear that the alternative path blazed by the US and Australia, a followed by India, China and now Canada is becoming the non-stop route to climate hell.

New Canadian Government May Shatter Kyoto

The Tyee, a “fiesty” on-line magazine that loves tackling stories that the mainstream media overlook, has the definitive piece on the Harper Conservatives' plans for Kyoto - and it's bleak, bleak, bleak. Canada's new federal government (this is being written before the polls close, so we're making an assumption) is seated in the oil-soaked western province of Alberta and has been hostile to the Kyoto Protocol from the outset.
