For at least 2 years I’ve said I’d like to build a home that doesn’t have a furnace, and doesn’t have natural gas. There are Passive Houses all over Canada. It was a technology invented in Regina 40 years ago, and rediscovered and developed by the Germans. You can order a home from Europe, or use a Saskatchewan builder instead.
It’s frustrating having cave men deciding your province’s future. If only they’d developed leaderships skills aside from being liars masterful enough to fool their voters.
Saskatchewan’s Premier literally thinks that raw resources are more important than our people and their future here in Saskatchewan. Why is his badly typed meme using a federal NDP campaign plane to talk about provincial NDP travel? Could it be that his travel expenses are ridiculous, full of evasive photo ops with terrible people like Doug Ford?
An older, white, Republican, Florida man was arrested in connection with failed bombing attacks on Democrats and other critics of Donald Trump and the Republican Party.
Bannon is a Triple Changer Transformer!
Trumpers are terrible people. They support a terrorist political party called The Republicans.
A year ago, during the #PriceOfOil news bonanza about Big Oil corruption and harm in Canada (and Saskatchewan), a few prominent journalists including a couple at @CBCSask got very snippy with me. They insisted they do all they can to bring us those stories.
Have you heard of the Taylor Energy spill, the (soon to be) biggest in the Gulf of Mexico? Google doesn’t have anything about CBC Sask talking about it only 14 years ago (and still going today). The #BPocalypse blowout in the Gulf had a Hollywood movie made about it.
Our news media simply isn’t set up to properly inform Canadians, and warn them of long-term disasters like oil spills that will go on for 100 years, and have been spilling for 14 years. With this information, Canadians would oppose off-shore drilling (in the Arctic).
Instead, we hear them covering the Premier as if he’s sincere about reducing emissions with his own “plan”, while his party is funded by oil companies. His track record as Environment Minister was to raise emissions in Saskatchewan.
#skpoli is Petrostate politics, without the politically ordered assassinations of dissidents. We should stop the control of Big Oil over our political processes before it comes to that point, and that means voting out the Sask Party, and ending corporate donations to parties.
That is even harder to do when journalists don’t find ways to present the climate crisis and related stories in context of today’s important, but fleeting news. Do I have the solution right now to offer them? Maybe not, but they sure as heck haven’t found it, or have had bosses that allowed them to implement it. And it’s their job to find a way.
A show once hosted by climate change denier Rex Murphy, was asking some okay questions of callers, while other questionable questions were called out by callers.
The last caller said rightly people shouldn’t be asked any more if they think climate change is happening, since scientists have long determined that it is. We don’t ask people if they think Lawn Darts are dangerous or if we should wear seat belts, anymore.
