On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina made landfall off the coast of Louisiana, triggering a slow-moving disaster as floodwaters breached the levees around New Orleans. Nearly 2,000 people were killed over several weeks, hundreds of thousands of homes were destroyed, and the city was left in ruins. Environmental scientists warned that Katrina was a taste of what was in store for the Gulf Coast region if climate change continued unchecked.

If federal parties are serious about taking on climate change, they need to stop giving money to the oil and gas industry, according to two climate experts.

Why you should take Mark Jaccard’s platform ratings with a hunk of salt

If there is some good news in this election it is that, finally, every leader and party feels compelled to run on what they hope will be viewed as a credible climate plan, and each of the major parties appears to be presenting a somewhat stronger climate plan than just two years ago.

The costs of the Trans Mountain expansion project continue to soar, but with the company behind it increasingly opaque since Ottawa bought the pipeline, it’s difficult to say by how much, according to a new report from West Coast Environmental Law (WCEL).

Please spread the word and come when you can. Bring water, canned fruit. It appears the plan might be to starve out the tree-sitters. Lots of security on site and, since yesterday, lots of fencing erected around the trees where the tree-sit platforms are.
     Solidarity,

They feed us, rescue us, lend a needed touch. They make our lives possible. A photo essay.

During this pandemic, people crucial to the core functioning of our society masked-up, sanitized and risked their family’s health to do their jobs. Today The Tyee salutes all the workers who’ve kept us going.

The time has come for a major reboot of the CleanBC goals.

As we come to the end of what has been a devastating summer for many British Columbians — marked by the June heat dome event and the loss of nearly 600 people, hundreds of wildfires leading to people losing their homes, days of smoke, thousands of evacuations — the time has come for a major reboot of CleanBC, the province’s climate plan.
