Neoliberalism is to blame for stalled climate action 23.8.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
This article was first published in The Intercept on August 3, 2018 . Published by  rabble.ca  with permission from The Intercept. On Sunday, August 1, the entire New York Times Magazine was composed of just one article on a single subject: the failure to confront the global climate crisis in the 1980s, a time when the science was settled and the politics seemed to align. Written by Nathaniel Rich, this work of history is filled with insider revelations about roads not taken that, on several occasions, made me swear out loud. And lest there be any doubt that the implications of these decisions will be etched in geologic time, Rich's words are punctuated with full-page aerial photographs by George Steinmetz that wrenchingly document the rapid unravelling of planetary systems, from the rushing water where Greenland ice used to be to massive algae blooms in China's third largest lake. The novella-length piece represents the kind of media commitment that the climate crisis has long deserved but almost never ...

Imagining a more equitable Winnipeg: The 2018 Alternative Municipal Budget 20.6.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Lynne Fernandez Winnipeg cannot control broader macro pressures such as climate change or a stagnant global economy, but it can prepare for the changes that are coming. It can meet climate change with policy to mitigate damage, slow the rate of change, and build resilience. It can stimulate and grow the local economy while making sure that marginalized citizens are included. It can put the brakes on wrong-headed practices like urban sprawl or over-spending on policing, while redirecting resources to deal with the root causes of crime and our infrastructure deficit, and smooth out the inequalities that keep our city from realizing its full potential. The 2018 Alternative Municipal Budget (AMB) is a community response that dares to imagine a greener and more equitable Winnipeg. Why an alternative budget? Government budgets are overwhelmingly complex, inaccessible documents. Our AMB is much simpler; it distills crucial elements of the actual budget into easier to digest sections. It educates, challenges and ...

Scott Pruitt Is Killing Us 26.4.2018 Truthout - All Articles
Pruitt Unveils Controversial "Transparency" Rule Limiting What Research EPA Can Use , Washington Post, 04/24/2018 That last one is a real doozy: "A chorus of scientists and public health groups warn that the rule would effectively block the EPA from relying on long-standing, landmark studies on the harmful effects of air pollution and pesticide exposure," reports the Post. In short, Pruitt is attacking basic science itself. Some of these reports used the personal medical data of patients, and so were not made public. This kind of data was previously used to link leaded gasoline to neurological disorders and air pollution deaths. This kind of data, in other words, saved many lives. This decision, like many others Pruitt has made, will eventually come with a body count. Anthropogenic climate change is fact, according to the US National Academy of Sciences and the UK's Royal Society's most recent report . It bluntly explains the evidence "that the concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have ...

Trudeau's Kinder Morgan deal is a compromise on climate change 12.4.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Politics in Canada Last time I checked, Alberta's oilfields had not been seized by marauding bands of eco-warriors. But you might be confused into thinking so by the inflamed rhetoric coming out of Ottawa and Alberta. We're told that the country faces a national crisis over the resistance to the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline, following an ultimatum by Houston-based Kinder Morgan that it's suspending long-stalled building plans unless it's assured a green light by May 31. With both Alberta and Ottawa offering full-throttle support for the project, including potential financial backing, a chorus of rage has arisen from the country's business and political ranks over B.C.'s refusal to fall into line. Some commentators insist this shows Canada is broken, even implying Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is a sissy unless he gears up to send in the army to restore the rule of law. So what precisely has B.C. done that it is trampling on the rule of law? After hiring the distinguished former B.C. Supreme Court ...
