Canada is apparently in consultation with major energy companies to open up the arctic for deep sea oil well exploitation, by "relaxing" our environmental safeguards and regulations. I haven't even heard of this prior to this column in the globe, and i read several papers a day. Not surprising, like the europe trade agreement, SPP, etc.
from the globe:
This week 300 protesters traveled to Queen's Park to voice their concerns over industrial wind projects. These people were dismissed as Not-In-My-Back-Yarders... maybe crazy. Because who in their right mind would say wind turbines are not green? It's a given... isn't it?
Lately, I have been attending kitchen-table meetings in regards to industrial wind turbines and I'm no longer convinced that wind turbines are "green" bullet we've been waiting for.
