Doug Ford rolls back climate policies while unprecedented tornadoes ravage his province 27.9.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Karl Nerenberg On Friday September 21, the most violent and destructive weather event in recent memory hit the Ottawa-Gatineau region. It consisted of not one, not two, not three, but six tornadoes, accompanied by vicious thunderstorms, rainfall that turned quiet streets into torrential rivers and winds that reached 260 kilometres per hour. It was an unprecedented weather catastrophe by any measure. On that same day, National Post columnist Rex Murphy unloaded a full bore attack on one of his favourite targets: anybody who evinces the slightest concern for the environment.

"It's quite queasy being a green," Murphy wrote, just as multiple tornadoes were closing in ...

B.C. is not alone in experiencing droughts and other extreme weather events, all of which are worsening with climate change. Many regions across provinces and territories, which are on the traditional territories of Indigenous peoples, have issued drought warnings. There were 120 forest fires burning in northern Ontario earlier this month, which have now decreased to 26 fires.    These extreme weather patterns seriously threaten clean drinking water sources, watersheds as well as our food security. Despite drought, forest fires and extreme weather events, most governments continue to promote an economic system that puts unlimited growth above water, our climate and the vital needs of people and the planet.  Governments must take immediate ...
