Meet the Former Bay Streeter Leading Tory Charge Against Oil-Sands Opponents – March 9, 2012
Joe Oliver has assumed the mantle as the Defender of the Oil Sands, a role he is clearly relishing.

The interest generated by our Wall Street Journal op-ed of Jan. 27, "No Need to Panic about Global Warming," is gratifying but so extensive that we will limit our response to the letter to the editor the Journal published on Feb. 1, 2012 by Kevin Trenberth and 37 other signatories, and to the Feb. 6 letter by Robert Byer, President of the American Physical Society. (We, of course, thank the writers of supportive letters.)

Scientific Case for Man-Made Global Warming Fears is Dead – October 27, 2011
Many of the proponents of man-made global warming are now claiming that climate change is worse than they predicted.

How About a Green Tea Party? – September 28, 2011

Fifty percent of crops in Manitoba cannot be grown with a 0.5°C overall temperature drop and much of Canadian agriculture is eliminated entirely by a 1°C cooling.

Paying For Unused Advice – July 6, 2011
Oh, politicians say their decisions are informed by science but that's a fairy tale they tell sleepy children and reporters.

When science does not support their decisions, they ignore it.
The Recycling Myth – July 4, 2011
As a Swede I get to hear a lot of the myths of how wonderful a country Sweden supposedly is — the "prosperous socialism" it stands for, a role model for the rest of the world.
