The Weather Makers - Tim Flannery


By now, climate change is a fairly universally accepted fact. Flannery outlines the history of climate change, dealing specifically with recent impact that humans have had on Gaia's condition. More important, the Australian depicts two paths: one that has the human race continuing along our destructive path, ultimately leading to our destruction; and another, more optimistically, that has some realistic changes that we can take on right now - changes that can save us from catastrophic planetary changes.

After reading the book, I have personally decided to take one particular step towards improving my carbon emissions: I have decided to apply for an alternate energy provider. Rather than relying simply on decreasing my usage of traditional energy sources, I am going to take the next step by registering for an alterate energy provider. In Ottawa, one supplier who provides green electricity is Bull Frog Power:

Climate change is difficult for people to evaluate dispassionately because it entails deep political and industrial implications....the stakes are high, and this has led to a proliferation of misleading stories as special interest groups argue their case.

Why not move to Quebec (the province) instead of registering for Bull Frog: isn't 99% of their energy from renewable sources (hydroelectricity) anyway?
And you don't have to pay extra for it... although you will have to pay extra taxes. Hmm. A bit of number crunching to do here, I think.
