Other than the fact no one will clean up the oceans or for that matter the mercury and arsenic from the spill, it still fits. The assault on the biosphere is coming from all sides.”

“If there is a clean up, it will no doubt be considered economic activity..which means others will profit and those profits will be added to the GDP.Even the increase in cancer rates becomes profit.. To those in power, the environmental destruction here in reality has no value other than a PR problem to be managed. The cost of doing business..It really is an upside down world”

“I'm glad Young decided to cancel/or was forced to cancel. but the reason given was totally wrong..Waters said he found it "hard to believe that you would turn your back on the indigenous people of Palestine."..So where does it leave Young's credibility when it comes to honouring the treaties and supporting out indigenous people..Smells a lot like hypocrisy to me Mr..Young..”

“" To actually make meaningful and lasting change requires individual levels of commitment no one seems willing to make." Yup ..fifty years of trying to persuade folks to be more responsible, consume less, drive more energy efficient cars and we are getting nowhere..

That's precisely why we need a lot better leadership..and getting rid of Harper is certainly a terrific start.”

“"He seems incapable of learning"..IMO..Harper knows full well what climate change and its implications are for this country. This neoliberal puppet represents the interests of big oil and the banks and out of his mouth comes whatever serves these interests best. No excuse needed to take us back to the Dark ages ..this is deliberate payback for the folks who put him in power.”

“When self built they can cheaper. The problem so far is that in many cases these become disposable housing as many are built by builders on the cheap often diy builders. This is exactly opposite to what is needed to be sustainable. Here is an example of what is possible http://www.fourlightshouses.com/pages/the-napoleon-complex.

Eroca Brawne on Jun 16, 2014 at 22:54:06

“This was not built on the cheap. It's tubular steel construction - far stronger and more durable than wood - it will not rot, is water resistant, fire resistant, UV protected, pest resistant, has a 20 year warranty and a far greater life expectancy - the same cannot be said for wood construction - which most tiny houses use. Or the put it together yourself metal over styrofoam cheap - yet expensive to buy homes.”
