  2. Fast Forward2006/11/20
    Our entire culture is based on the buy now pay later idea. Why put off having anything that you want or desire when you don’t have to pay a cent until 2008? As a result, we live in a constant state of indebtedness. Nowhere is that more evident than in how we treat our environment.

    There is a direct connection between Canada’s CANDU nuclear reactors and Korea’s nuclear weapons test.

    The fact that my father’s birthday, September 23rd, fell on the autumn equinox this year is a bittersweet coincidence that is not lost on me. His death this summer is a reminder that to everything there is a season.

    The summer of 2006 saw the beginning of a new movie phenomenon – the environmental epic. Topping the list is Al Gore’s much touted An Inconvenient Truth, a film about the global warming crisis. I have to admit, I had high hopes for this movie.

    There comes a point, in every society, when it is time to either, lead, follow, or get the heck out of the way. For Ontario, Canada’s most populous and powerful province, that time is now. At issue – how to power a province that will lose 80% of its generating capacity within the next 15 to 20 years.

    The US EPA plans to establish testing criteria to allow pesticide manufacturers to test their products on human subjects. At the same time, a French study has concluded that children who are exposed to pesticides are 50% more likely to develop acute leukemia. Maybe pesticide makers should volunteer to be their own guinea pigs
