TckTckTck Vigil For A Real Deal in Copenhagen

Dec 12 2009 - 5:30pm - 6:30pm

This event will be a short, simple, dignified, family-friendly candlelight vigil for the planet on the steps of the magnificently-lit Alberta Legislature. And it could be the most important thing you do for the planet all year. Please share with your friends and family.

This December world leaders are gathering in Copenhagen to forge a new international climate agreement - essentially our global game plan to stop dangerous climate change. But not just any deal is good enough - it has to be a Real Deal: and that means Fair, Ambitious and Binding. Read more »

Book Tour: Wild Alberta at the Crossroads

Calgary authors Robin White and Marian White will be presenting slide shows at Pages Books on Kensington at 7 pm, November 17th and at Pincher Creek public library at 7 pm, November 19th . These are part of their new Alberta bad-news/good-news book-signing tour with their award-winning environmental coffee-table book, Wild Alberta at the Crossroads (see dates below).

This book is unique not only in portraying all six Alberta natural regions from prairie to Canadian Shield, but in taking a critical look at our stewardship of the land and response to global warming. Confronted by unrestrained resource extraction and ensuing climate change, the Whites concluded that celebrating Nature was not enough; we must face up to our environmental problems. Clearly many agreed, for the book sold out and was reprinted this summer. Read more »
