The Simple Solution by Elizabeth May

The Simple Solution

"Pollution must have a price tag. It is currently too cheap to pollute and too expensive not to." The debate on the various ways to put a price on carbon - a goal now endorsed by a wide range of think tanks and NGOs, from the National Round Table on Environment and Economy to the Canadian Council of Chief Executive Officers - needs to take place in a proper factual context.

Tip of the week:
What you choose to read can help the environment in two ways: your choice of reading materials and the manner in which you obtain them. Pulp and paper is the third largest industrial polluter in Canada and the United States, releasing over 100 million kg of toxic pollution each year. Buying those same books at a used book store, or borrowing them from the library would help to reduce that impact. You can also buy used books at flea markets, garage sales or online check our suggestions;

Repower America means new industries with
high-paying jobs. It means lower energy costs.
And, it means substituting clean domestic sources of
energy and a transition away from dirty coal and foreign oil.

What is One Million Acts of Green?
This season, CBC and The Hour with George
Stroumboulopoulos want to mobilize Canadians to do
One Million Acts of Green. In partnership with Cisco, the
idea behind the campaign is that one small act can make
a big difference. We're asking everyone to get involved:
schools and universities, cities and communities,
business, politicians, and even celebrities. But most of all,
YOU. Together we can make an impact. Together we can
make our lives, our communities, and our environment
greener.
