Examineradio comes a day early this week – happy holidays!
This week we speak with Dr. Tom Duck, a professor with the Department of Physics and Atmospheric Science at Dalhousie University. He, along with other prominent Canadians including Stephen Lewis and Tzeporah Berman, have filed a grievance with the Commissioner of Competition over an energy company-funded campaign of climate change denial.
Also, the Chronicle Herald seems to be gearing up to lockout workers in the new year. One particularly disturbing proposal – at least according to the union – is management’s desire to ‘eliminate the contract clause that says: “The company at all times recognizes the principle of equal pay for equal work for male and female employees.”’ Expect more advertorial content and less shoe-leather reporting from Canada’s largest independently-owned newspaper in 2016.

Re Billboards and climate change :
The UN climate emissions and COP21
” The UNFCCC Synthesis Report was 66 pages long. However, it contained zero information on the commitments of the individual countries or even regions. Searching for such information will be the topic of today’s post. ”
” It seems really odd to me that the UNFCCC Synthesis Report did not contain supporting information showing emissions by country. UNEP has a spreadsheet purporting to do so, but unfortunately it contains large plugged values, country errors and does not reconcile immediately to published historical data.”
A reader does not need a PhD to understand the post. The biggest problem is solving the ever increasing emissions from China and India, and Canada and the rest of the developed world needs to decide how to help.them. Assistance in paying for nuclear power generation in developing countries seems to be one option.
