The Bigger Picture: Climate Change


The Civility Project is a community initiative that will be gathering steam in Spring 2017.  

Articles filed under Climate Change speak to the connection between a way of life that maximizes the use of petroleum resources and climate change.   In the 2016, we saw indigenous communities beginning to relocated for the first time due to rising seas.  This past year, mean global temperatures reached their highest recorded levels ever.
 
Irrespective of this, the sprawl machine continues unabated and Canada’s Prime minister approves the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline increasing the amount of oil that can be transported from Alberta to Burnaby, BC from 300,000 barrels per day to 890,000 barrels per day.   

Suffice to say, the Civility Project will have more to say about the tangible costs of maximizing petroleum consumption.
