Join federal party leaders - sign the KYOTOplus pledge

Sierra Club of Canada

April 2, 2008

Hi! Moments ago, opposition party leaders Stéphane Dion, Gilles Duceppe and Jack Layton signed a historic pledge to fight climate change. The KYOTOplus pledge is part of a national global warming petition campaign launched today on Parliament Hill by Sierra Club Canada and a broad collective of environmental and public interest organizations. The Prime Minister and Environment Minister John Baird were also invited to sign the pledge, but declined.

I am giving you the inside scoop so that you can be among the first to sign the KYOTOplus citizens petition. I am especially encouraging you to use the Send-to-a-friend feature to jump start the momentum on this petition today. Please go to:

Earth Hour - Saturday 8:00pm

Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society — Calgary/Banff Chapter

As many of you know, World Wildlife Fund is asking people around the globe to take stand against climate change by turning out the lights tomorrow night at 8:00 PM. See http://www.wwf.ca/earthhour/ for more details.

We at CPAWS join in this call and urge all of our supporters to participate. The action in itself will not save much energy, but it will be strong demonstration to the governments and industries of the world that people want change, and that all of us are in this together. The Earth Hour movement has been endorsed by many leading companies and cities, including the City of Calgary. Read more about Earth Hour - Saturday 8:00pm

Premier Stelmach Fails to Deliver Action on Climate Change

Announcement Will Lead to More Delay with its "Plan to Plan"

Pembina Institute

Jan 24, 2008

The Government of Alberta unveiled its much-anticipated "green plan" today. But instead of outlining near-term targets for greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions the plan only sets a target for reducing GHG emissions by 2050.

"Premier Stelmach's announcement today is shockingly irresponsible, it continues to delay action and promises only a plan to plan. There are no short-term targets for absolute reductions in GHG pollution and no requirements for large polluters to reduce emissions," says Dan Woynillowicz, a Senior Policy Analyst with the Pembina Institute. "Alberta is the largest greenhouse gas polluter in Canada, producing close to one third of Canada's emissions. Albertans want action and Premier Stelmach is playing games by trying to dodge responsibility for delivering any real results until 2050."
