ClimateChange

COP 21 opens in Paris on November 30 2015

SDGs Goal 13 Climate Change; urgent means urgent

Goal 13. Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts*

f you don’t leave crude oil in the soil Coal in the hole and tar sands in the land I will confront and denounce  you (Nnimmo Bassey, presentation at Peoples conference on Climate Change, Bolivia)

 In other words "Freeze fossil fuel extraction" oving rapidly towards decarbonization

 

 

DEMANDING ACTION IN PARIS AND LEGAL ACTION THEREAFTER SHOULD NO ADEQUATE AGREEMENT BE REACHED

The time for procrastination about climate change has long since passed; the world is in a state of emergency and further inaction is gross or even criminal negligence.

Re:  Herbicide pollution and GMO labeling
 
Minister,
 
The confusion about the safety of GMOs is quite simple to address.   Most of the GMOs in our agriculture are RoundUp Ready crops and almost all GMOs in our food supply are from those crops.   RoundUp Ready crops are engineered to be sprayed with the herbicide RoundUp and this technology has become so successful that RoundUp has become a major pollutant (1) and food contaminant (5).  This chemical pollution is antibiotic, it impacts the microbiome, impairs CYP enzymes, and depletes food of minerals.  As a background paper for the impact of this pollution I offer my speaking notes to the American College of Nutrition conference last October in San Antonio (Texas).  Most of the studies I cite were published in the last fiv

Watchdog groups are denouncing the U.S. Department of Agriculture's recommendation on Wednesday to approve new varieties of genetically engineered corn and soybeans as a path towards more toxic pesticides that threaten the environment and public health.

"We are outraged," stated Marcia Ishii-Eiteman, PhD, senior scientist with Pesticide Action Network, adding that the "USDA has turned its back on America’s farmers and rural communities."

The new crops are Dow AgroScience’s 2,4-D- and glyphosate-tolerant corn and soybeans. They are made to be used with Dow's Enlist Duo herbicide, which contains 2,4-D and glyphosate and is also under review by the USDA.

May 24, 2005 -- Media Release -- Federation of BC NATURALISTS

BC’s naturalists are calling on the federal Environment Minister to act quickly to protect wildlife habitat in the Fraser River estuary, by acquiring and designating additional land as a National Wildlife Area (NWA). In a unanimous vote at its Annual General Meeting in Salmon Arm the Federation of BC Naturalists (FBCN) endorsed a resolution urging Stephane Dion, federal Minister of Environment, to develop a strategy that would include immediate and comprehensive purchase and designation of land in the Fraser River estuary.

More Highway Traffic Headed Our WayTraffic Photo -- East Van.

May 15/05 Libby Davies (NDP Member of Parliment for Vancouver East) A Press release

The provincial Liberal government plans to
widen the #1 Highway between 200th Street in
Langley and McGill Street in East Vancouver.
This would include building a second Port
Mann Bridge and widening the highway to
eight lanes, with some sections widening to 10
to 12 lanes. The price tag for this expansion is
$1.4 Billion. There has been no public consultation
and no consideration of alternatives.
East Vancouver residents are on the direct receiving
end of these plans – our streets will be
flooded with increased traffic as more drivers
get on and off the widened highway.
