Global warming will generate more heat than enlightenment. Sandra O’Malley, Diplomatic Correspondent (whatever that is) reports that the upcoming Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation nations meeting in Perth will:
- Examine ways to encourage miners to be cleaner and greener.
- Discuss how to make the resources industry—producing the fossil fuels warming the globe—more sustainable.
- Seek to guarantee miners a place in the sun going forward on the issue of global warming.
The news item is terse: ”Junior B.C. minister quits after firing off a profanity laden email. Bill Bennett has resigned as B.C.’s junior mines minister after firing off an email filled with profanity to a constituent. He says he showed very bad judgement in sending the email to a Fernie veterinarian last week. Bennett says he tendered his resignation to Premier Gordon Campbell this morning, adding Campbell was ‘very disappointed’. For the time being, Bennett says he will continue as the MLA for the East Kootenay.”
Now that you have turned to the second page (February) of your expensive calander, admit it: you could have done better. Maybe that ugly thing on the wall was gift from a non-favorite aunt. I confess I threw away the calender from some kindly consulting company—its photos were bad shots of old underground workings that existed long before the company’s founders were born. For a mere twenty-five percent of the original price I bought a calander to my liking, Serious Nonsence, covers from the New Yorker. Some wag said this blog is just serious nonsence, that’s why I like the calender.
