Kevin Hagen, VP of ESG strategy at Iron Mountain, on the nascent digital transformation 6.11.2018 Energy & Climate | Greenbiz.com
The digital transformation is the idea that strategic business (and some political) decisions will be made using technologies, data and automated processes. The implications of this transformation aren't as easy to describe, but one of the major ones is eliminating the negative impacts of extracted physical materials on the planet.

Police technology vs. civil liberties -- science fiction or current reality? 27.9.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Technology I enjoy reading science fiction, especially when it considers humanity's struggle to deal with new technologies. Often these stories present a cautionary tale about how new technologies can be misused to oppress people. This idea of science fiction as cautionary tales was summed up by author Ray Bradbury, who wrote: "The function of science fiction is not only to predict the future, but to prevent it." One of my favourite science fiction writers is Philip K. Dick, who wrote a number of these cautionary tales. One of them, "The Minority Report" (which you may know instead as a Tom Cruise movie -- the short story is better) presented a future where police did not investigate crimes that had occurred; instead, the "PreCrime" unit stops crimes before they occur, based on predictions from precognitive mutants. Reality imitates fiction So imagine my surprise when I came upon an article discussing police use of a computer program called PredPol (short for predictive policing) to identify areas that ...

Trans Mountain court decision sets up conditions for pipeline approval 13.9.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Pamela Palmater Tahlequah's "tour of grief" which saw one of the female southern resident killer whales (referred to by scientists as J-35) carry her deceased calf for 17 days was an unprecedented show of grief for the death of her calf. It is also a sad reminder of the fact that these endangered whales have had no successful births for three years. Her visible mourning tore at the heartstrings of many Americans, Canadians and especially Indigenous peoples who know all too well the pain of losing their children. While it is not uncommon for a killer whale to hold her deceased calf for a few hours or a day, this show of extended grief was the first time observed by scientists. Some wonder whether Tahlequah's actions were not a call for help given that there are only 75 whales left and the proposed increase in tanker traffic from the Trans Mountain pipeline threatens to wipe them out for good. Indigenous Nations in Canada and several conservation groups filed applications against Canada's decision to ...

Can they build Trans Mountain while respecting Indigenous rights and protecting orcas? 6.9.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Karl Nerenberg Last week, three Federal Court of Appeal judges told the Justin Trudeau government it could not go ahead with a pipeline that would carry Alberta oil sands product to the sea. The main purpose of the Trans Mountain pipeline-twinning project is, in Alberta Premier Rachel Notley's words, to end Alberta's "landlock" and find markets for its unrefined bitumen in countries other than the U.S. Both Notley and Trudeau point out it makes eminent good sense that we should reduce our dependence on U.S. markets, considering how Trump's U.S. has been treating Canada of late.  Prime Minister Trudeau approved Trans Mountain in 2016, based not on his promised new environmental assessment process, but on the process Stephen Harper had bequeathed him. At the time, Rachel Notley lauded the prime minister for his "extraordinary leadership." When the Federal Court of Appeal put a halt to the project, Notley decided to hold Trudeau responsible. "Successive federal governments have created this mess," she said. ...

Frenzy over Trans Mountain court decision engulfs Alberta politics and media 2.9.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
David J. Climenhaga Funny, isn't it? Less than six months ago, tout le monde political Alberta was demanding harsh application of "the rule of law." This was nearly universally interpreted to mean that no legal challenge or protest against the construction of the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion Project could or would be tolerated. The government of British Columbia's determination to exercise its right to mount a legal challenge against the TMX Project, then being proposed by Texas-based Kinder Morgan Inc., was excoriated as a violation of the rule of law by Alberta NDP Premier Rachel Notley, United Conservative Party Leader Jason Kenney, and many others. To a significant degree courts in British Columbia have complied. "Camp Cloud" has been dismantled , its protester-residents scattered. Anti-pipeline protesters who violate the injunctive no-person's land around the Trans Mountain terminal in Burnaby, B.C., are being sent to jail , albeit not for as long as some intemperate Alberta politicians ...
