We Can Learn So Much From Nature

If you fly over a forest and look down, you'll see every green tree and plant reaching to the heavens to absorb the ultimate energy source: sunlight. What a contrast when you look down on a city or town with its naked roofs, asphalt roads and concrete sidewalks, all ignoring the sun's beneficence! Research shows we might benefit by thinking more like a forest.

Setting The Record Straight On Ontario's Green Energy Plan

Ontario is taking a comprehensive approach to cutting emissions, which is a good thing.
