There’s even a yellow lily too. The white peonies are almost all done.
Effing petroleum-heads and their cockamamie get-rich schemes have left us holding the bag.
We’ve got former Premier, and current Premier a-holes making total asses of themselves to defend their long held positions of stupidity and ecocide.
The best way to make money in oil now? Do like I’ve been saying for years, and Leave It In The Ground!
I don’t think I want to bother hearing what they have to say.
Don’t you dare suggest that oil could be bad, the sensitive folks of Oxbow, SK might get up in arms. They’re having a tough time with work you see, the oil industry that once paid them handsomely to ruin their kid’s environment, now only ruins their kids’ environment without paying them for the privilege.
Here are some comments attacking the teachers who decided to use a green theme for their Christmas concert, and teach kids that some of their parents are deranged Boomers despite not being old enough.
- Darlene Twietmeyer You know that really is too bad it’s Christmas for Pete’s sake wow
isn’t the whole idea of Christmas well it’s Santa and presents but it’s the whole Nativity thing and the reason for the season and all that
- Aaron Folkerts: “I was disgusted my self . I heard about it but then I saw it. Keep your fucking commy political beliefs to yourself and just do what your paid to. Teach”
I don’t think I’ve ever called for a Minister to resign before, while on the radio, but Duncan should definitely quit screwing up Saskatchewan, SaskPower, and our environment.
The #ClimateStrike was in Regina again this morning, and hundreds of people marched from the RSM to the Legislature to show their displeasure with the government for doing nothing to address the climate crisis.
The Government is doing less than nothing, they’re now actively harming the people providing solutions to the pollution crisis. Yesterday SaskPower shut down wind and solar applications, meaning no one can add renewable energy to the grid, and surpass SaskPower’s negligible plans to green our electricity supply.
Greta Thunberg’s lonely climate strike over a year ago has inspired a global movement, and the SaskParty had better get out of the way. The next generation isn’t going to take kindly to their destruction and obstruction, and neither will anyone else who wants a future in this province.
Dr. Brit Hall addressed the hundred of strikers about the excuse makers we all know.
Despite a ticking clock to cut emissions drastically, SaskPower is opting to continue to burn low grade coal instead of support faster adoption of solar power. They’re cutting a successful Net Metering rebate system 2 years early.
There’s a promise by the wildly anti-environment SaskParty, even during Brad Wall’s years, to cut power generation back to only 50% fossil fueled, by 2030. It makes zero sense for SaskPower to remove an incentive for its customers to help it reach that objective earlier.
UPDATE: It’s even worse than the incentive going away, all new applications for solar and wind isn’t being accepted now!
Jeff Cliff interviewed me for his Facebook Live stream on Sunday. We discussed Saskatchewan politics, media, blogging, censorship, and the Amazon Fires.
For instance, I can link to Facebook, but people trying to link here from Facebook are told my blog doesn’t meet Facebook’s “Community Standards”. If you can figure out why, that would be quite the feat.
Also noticed that http://www.abandonedstuff.com isn’t redirecting to this WordPress address right now, so I don’t know if that’s a permanent problem introduced by WordPress, or something else.
The Premier of Saskatchewan has posted a Confederate flag on his Twitter account.
The Confederate flag has been a hate symbol for longer than recently, although it was popularized in a 1980s TV show that didn’t play up its white-supremacist beginnings. The Premier knows it’s controversial (at best), and is widely accepted as a hate symbol. He chose to promote it anyway.
The Premier has appeared with Yellow Vest racists wearing a reflective green jacket. He clearly doesn’t mind being associated with symbols of racism, and that’s a shameful way for a Saskatchewan Premier to behave and think.
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.
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.
