An Intergenerational Crime

He says that our failure to act is an "intergenerational crime."

David Suzuki, among many, many others, is rightly upset by Canada's pathetic behaviour and position (let's just call it environmental bashing of unforgivable proportion) at the Bali UN Summit on Climate Change.

"we are leaving a mess for our children and grandchildren who had nothing to do with making it, and we are creating a precarious world for the poorest and most vulnerable peoples who were not the cause of the current crisis."

For Suzuki's full commentary, go to:

David Suzuki (the Nature of Things) calls the government's spin on climate change "humiliating" and "ludicrous"http://www.thestar.com/News/article/283829
Oh yes, and Avaaz.org has given Canada its Fossil of the Day Award for its ludicrous position at the talks.

The sooner we get rid of these clowns, the better we'll all be! They're an embarrassment to the country, and the thinking, caring, intelligent people of the planet (Don't get me going...)!

What a fun paddle we had that day in your part of Trinity Bay. Thank you! We must plan to do more...

Well it is embarassing for our country to be yet again humiliated by our gov't. It's hard to believe that we have some of the most toxic waste dumps in the world and the devastation being left behind by the Fort McMurray machine is more unbelievable than unconscienable. Saw a documentary on it last week. Sacrey!!! Glad ya keep us informed Alison.

Try as I could, I didn't find you folks among Mary Walsh's crowd on the St John's wharf picture yesterday. I thought warming was an issue? ;-)

(see the 'update' on my blog today for details...)

Michael - well, warming is an issue, but on a personal front, so is middle age spread :)
