Green Economy in Ontario?

The call for a massive transformation of our manufacturing sector from a ‘blue’ collar workforce to that of a ‘green’ collar one has had significant influence on our elected leaders as they weight the different options to spur an economic revival.

Thorium anyone?

A couple of notables are; China is pursuing nuclear power more enthusiastically and on a bigger [...]

For some reason (cultural bias, reductionism, ignorance?) the West wishes to focus population issues as a “Developing World’ problem, which Western cultures presume to have already managed well enough to export their methods abroad, under the auspices of Environmental necessities.

The road to Copenhagen: Musings on climate negotiations

Waking up in a freezing basement this morning, I was reminded that winter is fast approaching and with it December. Apart from the birth of western religion, time off from school, and a fat guy who invites himself over once a year, December is the multilateral showdown month in the realm of geo-politics.
