Your vote is your voice

This election is critical as climate change is spiraling out of control. If we don't take immediate action to end fossil fuels scientists warn we are facing climate, ecological, and social collapse. Everything we know and love is at risk. I'm having a tough time deciding who to vote for, so I thought I'd share a few of the things that I'm thinking about as I make my decision. Continue reading

Why heat pumps are cool

Baby, it's hot outside. It was 42 degrees during the heatwave in Squamish, but our heat pump kept our home lovely and cool. I've been raving about my heat pump. Not something I thought I'd ever say, but get geeky with me. Continue reading

Is Woodfibre LNG on the rocks? Read this summer update

Overview of Woodfibre LNG's updated site layout. It's been a bad few months to be an oil and gas exec... LNG's public image as a "climate solution" has shifted to "climate disaster" and rightly so. Many LNG projects are pulling the plug: from Goldboro LNG in Nova Scotia, to Kitimat LNG where both Chevron and Woodside have announced a fire sale with no buyers on the horizon. Continue reading

Tell Premier Horgan to stop funding fracking

Last year the BC NDP gave $1.3 billion of taxpayer money to oil and gas companies. A new report by our friends at Stand.earth has revealed that subsidies to fossil fuel companies have increased to a whopping $1.3 billion a year under BC NDP leadership.

Urgent! Help us stop old-growth logging on Gambier Island

Tim Turner counts the rings of a 200-year old Douglas Fir on Gambier Island. Old growth forests right here in Howe Sound that are under threat.

Every time I see these ads there is a little cheer inside my head because it means we're winning. The Director of Communications at Woodfibre LNG actually thanked my co-founder, Eoin Finn, last year. Why? Because without us, she wouldn't have a job. In fact, Woodfibre LNG has at least four communications and community relations staff. We're making it that difficult for them. So let's have some fun and debunk these two ads. Continue reading
