The Trial of Stephen Harper, Part II

As suggested I have now contacted 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.

When it comes to the dirty oil sands, Harper is absolutely unbalanced. He has muzzled the media. He has muzzled scientists. Environment Canada, has had their budget slashed. Anyone who opposes the dirty tar sands, is under threat. Harper is so obsessed by the tar sands, it's downright scary.

Can you imagine, at a meeting of Nations over climate change...Harper was bullying country's to accept the dirty oil? Other country's are fed up with Harper's hissy fits, when he doesn't get his own way.

Worse, the dirty oil is going to one of the most polluted country's in the world, China. Other country's around China are complaining, China's pollution is drifting into their country's.

The dirty oil sands, are an abomination, on the face of Canada.

I posted the Care2 activism site on the last thread:

There's another organization called the Environmental Defense Fund (I think that's it). I will get you details once they send me an update (weekly).

You may want to check out as well. I think Suzuki writes for them.

One other thought is the Green Party.
