Canada is warming faster than we thought. What can we do about it? 4.4.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Bronwen Tucker While global temperatures have increased 0.8 C since 1948, Canada has seen an increase of 1.7 C -- more than double the global average. And in the Arctic, the warming is happening at a much faster rate of 2.3 C, the Changing Climate report says. A  new report  leaked one day early from Environment and Climate Change Canada shows that Canada is experiencing warming at twice the rate of the rest of the world, with Northern Canada heating up at almost three times the global average. The changing climate report was prepared in a similar way to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports, as a synthesis of hundreds of peer-reviewed studies. It included details on a familiar catalogue of the impacts we can expect, not limited to increases in precipitation (particularly in winter), "extreme fire weather" and water supply shortages in summer, threatened freshwater systems, marine ecosystem collapse and a heightened risk of coastal flooding. As the  Toronto Star  noted, the report ...

Elizabeth May talks fossil fuels, pipelines and selling out the climate in Alberta 13.3.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
David J. Climenhaga What would have Elizabeth May have done in Rachel Notley's shoes?  The leader of the Green Party of Canada says she would have summoned up the memory of Peter Lougheed, founder of Alberta's 44-year Progressive Conservative dynasty, but not the way the province's first NDP premier has. "I think that Albertans are reasonable," May said during a short, 15-minute interview before she gave a talk with students and faculty at The King's University in Edmonton Friday. "If you present the facts, and say, 'Look, we had this plan from Peter Lougheed, let's revisit it," she argued, Albertans and other Canadians could find common ground.  Notley took a different road, with which the member of Parliament for Saanich and the Islands disagrees profoundly, describing Alberta's approach "an abdication of responsibility." To the right of Ralph Klein on oil? "If I had been her adviser, and I certainly tried to communicate this to her, given the political landscape, I would have sought out reclaiming the ...

New green illusion? Or gateway to survival? 1.3.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Carol Dansereau There are a number of ecosocialist responses to the Green New Deal, converging for the most part around the recognition that though it is not the Green New Deal most of us would prefer, it is the opportunity to move the paralysis of the climate change movement very far in the right -- left -- direction that our times so desperately need. This is a series of essays in six voices , from longtime activists who participate in the North American ecosocialist network System Change Not Climate Change . Each was challenged to make their point in 500 words or less. It was intended as a constructive contribution to the wonderful storm of discussion that the Green New Deal has opened up. Read the full series here . This is it. Either we demand what we actually need and build an in-the-streets movement to win that, or we kiss our future goodbye. The Green New Deal will be either our final illusion or a gateway to survival. What we actually need. Certain things need to happen asap. 1. Fossil fuels ...
