Note: There's a new "must see" documentary on climate change hitting 
theatres across Canada in June. "*An Inconvenient Truth*" is 
entertaining, hopeful and profoundly moving. It is both a very personal 
story and a hard core science briefing. It is often very funny. It is 
likely the best public education tool we have ever had on the threat 
posed by climate change/global warming. Don't miss it! and tell your

A Globe & Mail story today reveals the Harper government's intention to 
sabotage action on climate change:

*Ottawa now wants Kyoto deal scrapped*

Climate change is a human rights issue. It is already claiming the lives 
of 150,000 people around the world every year, and in 1998, over half of 
the world's refugees were were displaced by environmental disasters. 
Climate change is a peace issue. Our dependence on oil is also at the 
root of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan (and would be in Iran as 
well, if the West carries out an attack there). As we approach another 
potentially deadly hurricane season, and a summer which is expected to 
see record temperatures across Canada, Stephen Harper is cutting funding 
to climate change programs, trying to scrap the Kyoto Protocol, and 
ruling out deeper emissions cuts altogether.
Harper and Minister of Environmental Destruction Rona Ambrose are 
calling for a voluntary approach to emissions reductions: in other 
words, a continued assault on the atmosphere. At this critical moment 
for the climate, we cannot afford to remain silent. Canada is currently 
chairing climate talks in Bonn, Germany. Contact Stephen Harper today to 
express your outrage at this dangerous new policy direction. While 
Harper says we can't cut and run from our "commitment" in Afghanistan, 
he's doing exactly that with our commitment to the climate. Your urgent 
action is needed.
