Citizens and Conservationists target US Oil Giant ConocoPhillips

For destruction of Caribou Habitat and Alberta by Industrial Development and Global Warming

A rally will take place at the corporate offices of US oil giant ConocoPhillips in Calgary, Alberta on December 1st @11am to highlight the desperate situation of the Little Smoky Caribou, the demise of Alberta’s caribou habitat from industrial development, and from global warming’s devastating impacts on the boreal forest.

The Little Smoky caribou herd is considered at immediate risk of extinction with less than 100 individuals left thanks to the activities of corporations like ConocoPhillips in caribou habitat. While the Alberta Caribou Committee stalls, petroleum companies such as ConocoPhillips are racing ahead and further degrading their habitat with industrial development. A petition submitted almost a year ago to the Federal government asking for the implementation of the emergency provision of the Species at Risk Act has received no response to date. While the caribou committees are trying to plan for caribou recovery the petroleum industry is forging ahead with development in critical threatened caribou habitat. Read more »

Water & Cities: What can be done to future-proof our water supply?


The Centre for Applied Business Research in Energy and the Environment (CABREE) is proud to present2006 EPCOR Distinguished LectureDr. Peter Droege • Thursday, October 19, 2006 • Calgary, ABWater and CitiesWhat can be done to future-proof our water supply?Fresh Water is the lifeblood of cities and its decline has been recorded on a world wide scaleWith many global metropolitan areas suffering from depleting water resources, water security has become a major concern for many national and urban leaders. The process of evaporating water resources is driven by many factors, one being the development of fossil fuel generation. But the most threatening promises to be accelerating climate change impacts. What can be done to future-proof our cities from a water security point of view? Solutions may lie in integrated water cycle management, distributed micro-watershed management, water right registration and trading and in accomplishing a fundamental urban energy transition to more efficient and renewable models.

Global warming gets worse as Alberta ignores issue

David Suzuki Foundation

October 12, 2006

OTTAWA — Alberta needs to realize that ignoring global warming makes it worse; it does not make it disappear, according to a new David Suzuki Foundation study.

“Alberta has the fourth-largest provincial economy, but it’s the number one producer of greenhouse gases, says report author Dale Marshall, a David Suzuki Foundation policy analyst based in Ottawa. “That pollution is mainly from the oil and gas sector, and it’s exploding with the work on the tar sands. Add five new coal-fired power plants, and the outlook is disturbing.” Read more »

Action Alert: Government Inaction on Climate Change, Dominate the Letters Pages

Climate Action Network/Réseau Action Climat Canada

We had a pretty good day yesterday in our efforts to explain the real goal of the Harper government but they definitely did well too with all kinds of headlines about getting tough on polluters. This was their only goal headlines to create the impression of action.

We need a second wave of comment across the country today. We absolutely must dominate the letters pages of newspapers everywhere. Why must present the clear message that there is a con going on and future generations are the victims. Read more »
