The Fine Print

Because apparently we can't have a website anymore without a blog

The blah-blah-blog

Actually, I post a lot of information related to climate change almost daily elsewhere. But, as time permits, I'm going to put the esoterica I encounter related to climate change here rather than trying to update the various pages. So this will be reverse in chronological rather than logically organized within the structure of the rest of this website. Please don't rely on this as a consistent and current source for climate change information updates. Sadly, we cannot rely on our corporate-controlled mass media for good information on this. I update this site on my own time, and making a living has to take priority.

While these 3 provincial 'conservative' leaders prepare to waste billions of tax dollars on a bad idea which will take decades to fail to launch, we will continue to see hostility (er, I mean 'austerity') measures applied to health care workers and any useful environmental initiatives. Not included in any of these announcements: how to deal with disposal of the new spent nuclear fuel, let alone the existing inventories world-wide that have no viable solution. For context, 300 MW is half a Pickering reactor - so, not so small, really. Sad, so sad.
