FaceBook Group: Environment is My Voting Issue in Canada

If you're on Facebook, please take a moment to add your name to our latest project called: “The Environment is My Voting Issue in Canada.”

For over a year and half, polls have identified the environment as the # 1 concern for Canadians.  

Using social media tools like Facebook we can send a message to the Government of Canada that their performance on environmental issues will be judged at the ballot box.

Gwynne Dyer: Dab Those Bali Tears

As we now all know, COP-13 did not set the hard emissions-reductions targets that humankind so desperately needs. But there was a silver lining in the South Pacific, argues the legendary journalist who is perhaps best known for his 1980s TV miniseries War.

Inaction on Global Warming Sees Canadian Tory Government Bleeding In Polls

A new Angus Reid poll out today shows that the Stephen Harper Tory government continues to slump in popularity, and much of the blame lands squarely on their continued bumbling over the issue of global warming.

The Tory government is limping along with a paltry 33 per cent of Canadians supporting their party compared with 36.3 per cent on election day and the party's high of 39 per cent in March of this year.

The environment remains the highest-ranked issue for voters.

Bali Blog Blather Malkin-Style

A quick spin around blog-land reveals where the real hot air on global warming is coming from.

Michelle “I want to be Bill O'Reilly” Malkin doesn't even write about the UN global warming conference in Bali, she just defers to Fox News.

In the same post Malkin mocks Yvo De Boer, the chair of the Bali conference, for caring enough about an issue to get emotional about it (god forbid!).
