The Pope says global warming is real. What will publicly pious carbon-tax hating Catholics like Jason Kenney do? 17.6.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
David J. Climenhaga Turns out you really can't serve God and Mammon! Who knew? Conservative Alberta was reeling over the weekend at Friday's news from Rome that Pope Francis, leader of 1.3 billion Catholics, has declared global warming to be a real thing and putting a price on carbon to be "essential" to saving the planet. At a closed-door meeting of the Vatican's Academy of Sciences, a concept that at some points in the Church's history would have been oxymoronic, His Holiness sternly lectured the CEOs of Royal Dutch Shell, Eni, BP, Repsol, Conoco Phillips, Chevron, ExxonMobil, and executives of sundry investment funds to get with the program and stop standing in the way of planetary salvation. This has to be causing some consternation in the circles closest to Alberta Premier Jason Kenney, the "former WASP" and convert to Roman Catholicism who for many years has been portraying himself as more Catholic than the pope. Up to now, this may have appeared compatible with the premier's crusade against carbon ...

Jason Kenney fiddles (with climate policy) while Alberta burns 24.5.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
David J. Climenhaga It is an irony, though not a particularly satisfying one to observe, that while Premier Jason Kenney's United Conservative Party government moves swiftly to repeal Alberta's carbon tax, the province is aflame, with more than 5,000 Albertans required to leave homes and communities in imminent danger of destruction. It is only May. The leaves on most of the elm trees on my street in St. Albert have not even appeared yet. In other words, it's barely spring. God only knows what things will be like around here by midsummer. Smoky, I imagine. Well, get used to it. It gets harder by the day to deny the reality of global climate change. One of the effects of this inconvenient fact on Alberta's part of our planet is that there are going to be more frequent and more severe forest fires -- the kind that destroyed large swaths of the town of Slave Lake in 2011, Fort McMurray in 2016, and which are now threatening High Level. "Fire driven weather is 'new reality' for Canada and elsewhere, expert ...

The Nakba: a catastrophe that is still with us 15.5.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Robert Massoud Around the world, every May 15 is commemorated as Nakba Day. In 1948, during the 12 or so months known to Palestinians as the "Nakba" (Arabic for "catastrophe"), an estimated 750,000 people were ethnically cleansed from their homes and land, and more than 600 villages destroyed. This was the "cost" of creating the State of Israel, paid by the indigenous people of Palestine . Few people suspected then and not many realize today that the events of that year would help steamroll future developments into the full-blown catastrophe facing the world 71 years later. The planet we call home is in dire trouble. Humanity's ability to survive global warming depends on strong and determined global action by every single nation. States act according to international law and work within world governing structures. Both of these have been paralyzed, almost mortally wounded, by decades of Israel's impunity towards Palestinians and occupation of their land -- all in open violation of international ...

The big battle over climate change is just starting 14.5.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Karl Nerenberg On Wednesday, May 15, the federal NDP will use an opposition day in the House of Commons to focus like a laser on climate change. Jagmeet Singh's party will make some sweeping and bold policy proposals. That is only one sign that the war of words over global warming is getting hotter. In that war, the who-cares-about-climate-change side seems to have gotten the jump on the pro-environment side. The Doug Ford government of Ontario will soon be airing blatantly one-sided ads with a simple and simplistic message: carbon taxes make everything more expensive. The ads devote a few seconds to say there are better ways than taxation to deal with climate change. But their list of those better ways is bizarre: hold the biggest polluters accountable, reduce trash, and keep Ontario's lakes clean. The first way is part of the current federal government's carbon emission reduction plan, while the latter two would no doubt be salutary, if they were to happen. The ads do not explain, however, what, if ...
