Climate and Energy News Coming Thick and Fast

Here is a report (pdf) released Wednesday by Canada's National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy, about "one way that Canada can reduce energy-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 60 percent by 2050."

My mom is pretty excited. I'm still in my fey mood, not nearly so eager to be positive about new directions as I was a few days ago. Maybe when I get a chance to read it, I'll be swayed again.

Laura-

Thanks for the link to the Round Table study.

I missed your reference from the "fey post", but have just read it. I'm not one who was ignorant of the problem or who must be convinced of it, but if I were I'd have to work awfully hard to find fault with the assertions from that lengthy compendium of problems.

Among the things I like about it is that it makes it very clear that the price of gasoline is just the tip of the iceberg.

I would love to read rebuttals to it, but haven't found any yet.
