Subject: Canada Fiddles while the Planet Burns
Friends, Canadians, countrymen, lend me your ears...
and your keyboards*
Politicians, diplomats and scientists around the world
are gathering over the next 2 weeks in The Netherlands
to discuss the growing threat of global warming.
Leaders of Canada's political parties have ignored
this critical global issue.
Canada's negotiating team is right now trying to
weaken the UN Climate Treaty.
FAX ALL FEDERAL PARTY LEADERS
Apologies for cross postings. Please forward.
Visit or RE-VISIT the site to quickly fax all Party
Leaders. Urge them to support Canada's UN commitment
to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and maintain
Canada's leadership tradition on global issues.
Canada is currently arguing that clearcutting our
old-growth forests and replanting them, and building
nuclear reactors in developing countries, is more
effective than reducing fossil-fuel pollution. It also
wants to buy "pollution rights" from countries like
Russia because its economy has collapsed rather than
reducing emissions at home.
David Suzuki Foundation launched clickforcleanair.org
this autumn to put pressure on Prime Minister Chretien
to make climate change, clean air and clean energy a
priority at this UN Summit. One in every 850 Canadians
has visited the site and thousands have faxed the Prime
Minister. The federal government has since taken some
important steps forward. However, these steps aren't far
or fast enough! Because of the election, the campaign
has shifted its focus to the Party Leaders.
At http://www.stopclimatechange.org you can find out
more and personally fax the party leaders with a
couple of clicks. The David Suzuki Foundation has
recently published a downloadable peer-reviewed user's
guide to the international politics of climate change
and the Voter's Guide to the Atmosphere.
*This call is for all countrywomen, too. It is
plausible that because of this historic omission, Rome
and the rest of the world is in such a mess!
