It may be that when we no longer know what to do
we have come to our real work,
and that when we no longer know which way to go,
we have begun our real journey.
The mind that is not baffled is not employed.
The impeded stream is the one that sings.
― Wendell Berry

Has anyone else noticed how over the past few years the corporate media has been dedicating ever more space to articles on how to deal with loneliness, anxiety and insomnia, as well as ways to immerse ourselves in escapist new technology?

Canada is not doing enough to reduce greenhouse gas emissions despite mounting evidence the country is vulnerable to rapid warming, the outgoing federal Environment Commissioner warns.

In parting comments, Julie Gelfand criticized successive federal governments, saying their failure to cut emissions is “disturbing,” and urged greater action to tackle what she called one of the biggest challenges facing humanity.

The country’s top environmental watchdog also noted Canada is not on track to meet its climate-change targets.

Sonia Furstenau's speech in the BC Legislature on Bill 10 to subsidize LNG in BC.

 

We have voted against Bill 10 at every stage - this is a bill that gives increased tax credits to the LNG industry. 

It's 2019. We have a critical choice to make: will we make decisions that take us to a safer, healthier future, or will we double down on 20th-century energy and the fossil fuel industry, that needs taxpayer support in order to survive.
