Humpback Whales Are No Longer 'Threatened' and it Has Nothing to Do With Pipelines

When the announcement was made that humpback whales would no longer be protected as a "threatened" species in Canada, the public was furious.

Our government has a lot to answer for in the area of environmental management, but the outcry in this case is misguided.

We have seen, in the case of the Exxon Valdez disaster, that the damage will be profound and long-lasting. Have we really not yet learned this hard lesson? When something is priceless, you do not let anyone place it at risk.

Adam Smith Called: He Wants Warning Labels on Gas Pumps

Our dominant economic paradigm is premised on a worldview that we are self-interested, wealth-maximizing beings that respond like automatons to price signals. I think we're more than that. Our labels engage this part of us and are ultimately more congruent with what we are as human beings.
