A draft report says Canada is more vulnerable to climate change than any other industrialized country, but is unprepared to deal with the impacts.
The draft report from the National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy was specially commissioned by Prime Minister Paul Martin.
Meanwhile, in DC, Dubya stands alone among heads of state in refusing to take any action on global warming. Even Blair has said it’s a problem, even if he is Bush’s proxy for stalling as long as possible. History will not be kind to them.
This next story is quite fascinating. Hey, maybe it’ll get Big Oil onboard for stopping global warming…
In experimental project in Canada to inject carbon dioxide into oil fields has proven successful, removing 5 million tons of the heat-trapping "greenhouse" gas, while enhancing oil recovery, the Energy Department said Tuesday.
If the methodology could be applied worldwide, from one-third to one-half of the carbon dioxide emissions that go into the atmosphere could be eliminated over the next century and billions of barrels of additional oil could be recovered, the department said.
Update: Or maybe’s this is just more greenwashing (read the comments!)
