  • Pledge to #movethedate
    by davidmcc on August 15, 2017 at 7:37 pm

    Earth Overshoot Day (EOD) marks the day that humanity has used more resources than can be regenerated in the same year, as calculated by the Global Footprint Network. For example, if all humans on Earth lived in the same way as Canadians, it would take 5.1 Earths to sustain our lifestyle. Which is already an increase from last year’s 4.7 Earths. read mor […]

    by editorial on August 14, 2017 at 6:06 pm

    A FIVE DAY PILOT PROGRAM for grade 10 students, built around the theme of vision, ran at the University of Waterloo in mid-November 2004. On the following Monday, a local high school enrichment teacher reported that one of the students she sent came up to her in the hallway that morning, threw his arms around her and said “Thank you for sending me to Unlimited! It changed my life!” We knew then that the Unlimited program was going be the sort of transformational experience that would make a difference for our young students. read mor […]

    by editorial on July 12, 2017 at 4:20 pm

    In 2016, Canada finalized plans to fully ban the use and import of asbestos, putting into motion a rule to enact the ban by 2018. For decades, asbestos use has been known to cause devastating illnesses, ranging from a chronic lung disease called asbestosis to mesothelioma, a rare and very aggressive cancer. At one point in time, the natural mineral was used in myriad applications, namely in construction materials like drywall and insulation in homes. read mor […]

  • Investors Warn Asian Factory Farms Risk “Financial Food Poisoning”‘ of Global Food Supply Chain
    by Andrea Bertoli on August 16, 2017 at 10:15 pm

    Industrial animal agriculture is a hugely devastating industry for humans, for animals, and for the planet. Growing feedstock for animals means acres of rainforest are cleared for soybeans; methane emissions from CAFOs (concentrated animal feeding operations) are one of the leading causes of climate change; the resulting manure pollutes local waterways and air; and the crowded conditions of CAFOs lead to high rates of sickness and infection, leading to excessive use of antibiotics — which makes these vital medicines less effective for humans (in fact, farm animals receive approximately 80% of the antibiotics sold in the US) Investors Warn Asian Factory Farms Risk “Financial Food Poisoning”‘ of Global Food Supply Chain was originally published on CleanTechnica.

  • ‘Stop the Losses’: Former BC Hydro CEO Calls for Cancellation of Site C Dam
    by Sarah Cox on August 17, 2017 at 5:14 am

    The decision to proceed with the Site C dam was “reckless and irresponsible” and continuing the project will result in a “series of devastating high electricity rate increases” that will lead to job losses and business failures, the former President and CEO of BC Hydro has told the B.C. Utilities Commission in a formal submission. Marc Eliesen, who was at the helm of BC Hydro from 1992 to 1994, outlined why he believes the only financially responsible course of action is to cancel the $8.8 billion project and remediate the Peace River site in order to minimize Site C’s negative impact on BC Hydro customers and taxpayers. “Both the former government and BC Hydro’s Board abdicated their fiduciary responsibility to the rate payers and tax payers of this province,” Eliesen said in his 22-page submission to the BCUC, which is conducting a fast-tracked review of Site C’s finances and construction schedule. “There never was a business case for the start-up of construction of Site C, and there is not a business case to support its continuation or postponement.” Tags: Site C damBC Hydro […]

  • Canada in Hot Seat for Resource Policies at UN Racial Discrimination Hearing
    by James Wilt on August 16, 2017 at 8:44 pm

    Indigenous leaders from northern British Columbia are calling on the UN to investigate whether ongoing industrial development of Indigenous lands and waters constitutes a violation of UN conventions this week. Canada is up for review by the UN International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination. In a submission, tribes from B.C.’s northwest said Canada’s environmental assessment laws continue to measure money instead of impact. One of the signatories is Deneza Na’Moks (John Ridsdale), a hereditary chief of the Wet’suwet’en. He travelled to the UN on the heels of the recent approval and then cancellation of Petronas’ plans to build a pipeline and the Pacific NorthWest liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant in the Skeena River estuary.

  • Where On Earth Is Manitoba’s Climate Plan?
    by James Wilt on August 15, 2017 at 9:00 pm

    Manitoba’s Progressive Conservative Premier Brian Pallister initially seemed very serious about confronting greenhouse gas emissions — a position that came as a surprise to many given the history of Canada’s conservative politicians sidestepping the tricky issue of climate change. The party’s election platform pledged to “work with the federal government and other jurisdictions as we develop a made-in-Manitoba climate action plan.” After winning a massive majority in April 2016, it hired Canadian climate policy legend and campaign manager David McLaughlin as senior adviser on the file. An online survey was extended for an additional two weeks in March to allow for more public input. These were all impressive things from a government led by Pallister, who had previously served as an MP in Stephen Harper’s notoriously anti-climate policy government. But nearly 16 months later, the plan has never materialized. Tags: Manitobaclimate planPremier Brial Pallistercarbon pric […]

  • BREAKING: B.C. to End Grizzly Bear Trophy Hunting
    by Emma Gilchrist on August 14, 2017 at 10:13 pm

    The B.C. government announced on Monday it will end grizzly bear trophy hunting throughout the province and stop all hunting of grizzles in the Great Bear Rainforest. “By bringing trophy hunting of grizzlies to an end, we’re delivering on our commitment to British Columbians,” Doug Donaldson, Minister of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development, said. “This action is supported by the vast majority of people across our province.” A public opinion poll conducted by Insights West in February found strong opposition to trophy hunting across Canada (80 per cent), including 90 per cent of British Columbians. The ban will take effect Nov. 30th — after this year’s hunt. Tags: grizzly beartrophy huntingB.C. […]

  • Print No Evil: Three-Layer Technique Helps Secure Additive Manufacturing
    by Georgia Institute of Technology on August 16, 2017 at 6:56 pm

    Additive manufacturing, also known as 3-D printing, is replacing conventional fabrication processes in critical areas ranging from aerospace components to medical implants. But because the process relies on software to control the 3-D printer, additive manufacturing could become a target for malicious attacks – as well as for unscrupulous operators who may cut corners.

  • Smart electrical grids more vulnerable to cyber attacks
    by Elsevier on August 16, 2017 at 6:39 pm

    Electricity distribution systems in the USA are gradually being modernized and transposed to smart grids, which make use of two-way communication and computer processing. This is making them increasingly vulnerable to cyber attacks. In a recent paper in Elsevier’s International Journal of Critical Infrastructure Protection, Dr. Sujeet Shenoi and his colleagues from the Tandy School of Computer Science, University of Tulsa, US, have analyzed these security issues. Their report provides crucial keys to ensuring the security of our power supply."Sophisticated cyberattacks on advanced metering infrastructures are a clear and present danger," Dr. Shenoi pointed out. Such attacks affect both customers and distribution companies and can take various forms, such as stealing customer data (allowing a burglar to determine if a residence is unoccupied, for instance), taking power from particular customers (resulting in increased power bills), disrupting the grid and denying customers power on a localized or widespread basis.

  • Hypothermia After Stroke Reduces Dynamin Levels and Neuronal Cell Death
    by Mary Ann Liebert, Inc./Genetic Engineering News on August 16, 2017 at 6:14 pm

    A new study has shown that following brain ischemia caused by cerebral blockage in mice both immediate and delayed reduction in body temperature helped limit cell death and levels of a protein called dynamin. These results, which suggest that dynamin may have a role in—and be a potential drug target for—stroke-related neuronal cell death, are reported in Therapeutic Hypothermia and Temperature Management, a peer-reviewed journal from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers. The article is available free on the Journal website until September 16, 2017.
