Good News!

Earlier this week, the United Nations declared clean water and sanitation a human right! The declaration was ratified by 122 forward-thinking countries, with no countries voting against. But 41 members abstained, and you guessed it, Canada was among them.

Stephen Harper, you are a short-sighted, greedy coward. So there.


Have a lovely long weekend everyone!

I forget the proper name, but for that mud oil that's being dug/drilled up there, it takes like 3 gallons of water for every 1 gallon of oil to get the oil. Like we really needed another reason to stop using fossil fuels...

Yes, you're absolutely right. The tar/oilsands are a lot more water intensive in their extraction, and then the tailings lakes leak into the Athabasca river as well. Nasty.
