Evil Men Destroying Our World Have Names

“What is happening here is a crime” – Brazillian fascist President accusing environmentalists of what he’s done.

“I am not looking for who is responsible.”

Remember to think well of the dead, even if they wished you and yours death with every dollar they spent.

CBC, Change the Debate

CBC has a history of providing a substandard democracy experience for its owners, the Canadian public. Over a decade ago I organized a Regina protest in front of CBC Saskatchewan to object to the broadcasting corporation’s exclusion of Elizabeth May from the leaders debate. Years later she managed to win a seat anyway, and now the Greens are polling nationally about even with the NDP. Excluding her was obviously a partisan choice by the public broadcaster.

Yesterday, people across Canada gathered, including in Regina, to protest CBC’s lack of interest in hosting a Leaders Debate on the climate emergency that Parliament has declared. Several parties have a plan for a Green New Deal, and the public would benefit from hearing a structured debate from the leaders of those parties explain how they envision the Canadian economy will change to meet the pressing need the world is feeling to meet this crisis.

 

You might also want to read these from the past of media corruption.

It’s clear the CBC is willing to put more effort into sensationalizing a murder investigation, than into the most life threatening political issue of our time.

Conservatives Make Asthma Great Again

Canadian Cons desperately want to have MAGA as a campaign slogan because it worked so well for the President. That’s why they want to Make Asthma Great Again, and remove fuel standards. Put lead back into the gas, we need more stupid people from brain damage.

If you know anyone who thinks Scheer is an acceptable human being, you really need to question their judgement. He’s okay with making it harder for kids to breathe in Canada.

We’ll Always Have Paris

That prediction/lie didn’t work out too well.

On Wednesday, Todd D. Stern, the United States special envoy for climate change, who was in Beijing for talks, said that some Chinese officials had expressed concern about whether President Obama’s successor would ensure that the United States was committed to the global climate accord reached in Paris in December.

Mr. Stern said he had tried to reassure the officials. “I think it would be highly surprising to me if anybody elected were to try to pull the United States out of that,” he said at a news briefing.

“On June 1, 2017, United States President Donald Trump announced that the U.S. would cease all participation in the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change”

Speaking The Truth

CBC and other media need to recognize the following as true if we’re going to advance as a society. It’s likely to make them, and you, uncomfortable. Growth isn’t automatic and easy.

– Canada has committed genocide against First Nations people.

– Climate change has become a crisis.

– We won’t survive as a civilization this century without significant, yet still possible, changes to our daily lives. That means changes to our economy.

– The American President should not be quoted in headlines because more often than not he’s lying to manipulate people.

– Billionaires have too much power, and far too much money and need to return it to governments for massive investment in social programs like healthcare for Americans without any.
“all these billionaires and this 9 year old has to pay off his schoolmates’ lunch [debt]”

Jeet Heer (Retweeted Waleed Shahid):
“The Koch Brothers understand, and other billionaires do too, that centrist Dems are a crucial line of defense in stopping social democracy.”

– Canadian Conservative politicians have no feasible plan to deal with pollution, and their party leadership opposes real action to reduce pollution on time.

– Conservative Premiers put their federal party’s electoral wishes ahead of national unity and cooperation.

– Regina lacks the transportation infrastructure to meet its 100% renewable by 2050 target.

– The 2050 target is insufficient to meet our objective to survive the climate crisis.

Canada’s Recycling Shame

Canada doesn’t clean up its own junk. It shouldn’t sell it in the first place.

Prince Charles opened a tire recycling facility in Assiniboia, SK a couple decades ago. A few years after that, it closed.

The Provincial government told my Dad, a Mayor of a village that the village should bury tires as a solution for disposing of them. Make rat hotels. That was the SK Government’s idea of a solution in the 2000s. What’s it now?

Will I continue to recycle? Yes. More importantly I’ll reduce, and reuse, and push for single-use garbage items to not be manufactured in the first place.

Climate Change Deniers Rally in Regina

A sorry excuse for a rally is under way in Regina today. It’s a grouchy band of malcontents and [muted] racists who share a dislike for science and the Prime Minister.

The cowards deleted their racist post that Meili sarcastically called “brilliant”.

Among the supporters of the corporate ralliers are former Yellow Vest rally attendee Premier Moe, and this Yellow Vest rallier Jason LeBlanc who spoke in Ottawa at the event Scheer and Faith Go|dy spoke at.
LeBlanc says to the NDP “I thought we were friends.” “I’m just a farmer“, yet he’s acting as a mouthpiece for Oil and Gas AKA the SaskParty.

“I am passionate about auctions, but I am more passionate about survival in farming.”
Too bad he’s not passionate about survival of the humans who’d farm, and the climate required to do farming in Saskatchewan.

Who are the people he mentioned there?
Kevin Hursh was a TV agriculture journalist well known in Saskatchewan, and last year he wrote something awful for the newspaper, which I panned.
Krause denies being a climate change denier, but is a darling for their cause because her name is on Deniers’ lips anytime the subject of foreign money for environmental causes comes up.

LeBlanc, from Estevan, also promotes notable Denier Patrick Moore:
“@EcoSenseNow Mar 31
I am not a con man or a special interest, and I don’t take taxpayer’s $. I am a “real scientist” with a real PhD in science. There is zero hard evidence that CO2 is the cause [blah blah blah]”

Now if you want to hear from sensible people, this sums up the ralliers’ situation if they are not actively farming:
D. Bonnycastle:
‏”All this kerfuffle for 4.6 cents. Either they are idiots or they are trying to distract from the unprotested 25 cent raise for the oil companies.”

A journalist asked me if I was going to protest the rally in person, and I haven’t decided yet, probably not. A lot of the people there are feeling their livelihood is being threatened, emboldened by bad political leaders like Moe, and several of them are racists and fascists. I’ve never attended an anti-fascist counter-protest before, and I wouldn’t do so half-assedly.

There happens to be a child-led protest at the Legislature the following morning, at 10am-11am for the Fridays for Future global strike movement. Kids who are fed up with political inaction are striking on Fridays, since schooling won’t matter too much if their world is shattered by climate change disasters in the coming decades.
