As suggested I have now contacted Avaaz.org and the Council of Canadians seeking their assistance in organizing a petition demanding our federal and provincial governments take immediate action to decarbonize our economies and our society. This can't be done overnight but that doesn't mean we can't do it.
Earlier this week Scientific American published a warning that we may have less than a decade before we reach tipping points that will trigger irreversible, and largely unsurvivable, global warming.
Yesterday in The Trial of Stephen Joseph Harper, I tried to make the case in which Harper and those like him who have the power to act yet do nothing could be held liable for prosecution for crimes against humanity. Surely anthropogenic global warming is the most deadly weapon of mass destruction and those who allow it to be unleashed should be held accountable under both domestic and international law, civilly and criminally.
Somebody has to do something. I absolutely refuse to become an Easter Islander or to sit by while the petro-pols of Parliament Hill write a miserable fate for my grandchildren and their kids.
Let's put them, the lot of them, squarely on notice that we intend to see them held accountable for the future consequences of the decisions they make or refuse to make today. There is no other way.
