Global Commission adds pressure to climate debate

More on climate change and changing over from fossil fuels? The crunch is indeed coming for all of us. But like those who resisted the idea of global warming itself, will we refuse to get on with the job of adopting new ideas and, more important, dissuading many from polluting so much and failing to change.

Who is aware of their city’s invisible pollution problems and how can the health of urbanites be improved? Too often, we are too late in saving the health of our workers and children. Those who know the truth have probably moved out already.

Sorry, we're boring the pants off the polluters. But we have to report that yet another approach is being made to solving climate change.

Can global warming create more dangerous water problems than we had predicted? It seems now that shallow lakes are in great danger of contamination if we feed them agricultural fertilizers. Chinese, African and now American water supplies are regularly affected and made unusable with Microcystis toxins.

The disgraceful lack of control and study of the Alberta tar sands exploitation is leading to people's health problems. As the US considers its imports from Canada, it would be wise to consider just how neglectful the Canadians have been to their residents, air quality, water purity and forests.
