Here's a Way Cathy Could Make Herself Useful
Dame Cathy McKenna, Trudeau's EnviroMin, isn't much in the public eye these days. It must be tough playing defender of the environment in a petro-government out to burn the place down.
Here's an idea to raise her lacklustre profile. The Union of Concerned Scientists has produced a dandy interactive map showing what Americans can expect in their old age in the way of climate change.
It's a good way to remind people from their 20s to 50s that they have skin in this game - their own hides.
EnviroCan should take the UCS map as a template for a similar map of Canada from the Arctic all the way to the US border. It would help younger Canadians have a sense of what the decisions taken in Ottawa today could mean for them in 30 or 40 years.
