West Coast Environmental Law Told to Walk the Talk and Go Without Fossil Fuels; February 8, 2017

Friends of Science Society is calling on West Coast Environmental Law of British Columbia and the 50-odd agencies that have signed on to their proposed anti-oil action against fossil fuel companies to ‘walk-the-talk’ on climate change and abandon their use of fossil fuels today. British Columbia is staggering through one of the heaviest snowfalls of the past many decades and fossil fuels are keeping roads cleared and homes warm, says Friends of Science Society.



New Reports Challenge SHARE on Climate Change Risk and Denial for Pension Fund Trustees and Corporate Boards; February 1, 2017

Friends of Science Society today released two new reports challenging SHARE – Shareholder Association for Research and Education – which claimed corporate boards should have ‘climate competent’ directors and previously claimed climate change denial was not an option for pension fund trustees. Friends of Science says both positions put corporations and society more at risk of loss and economic decline as pension fund trustees should note that climate change can be warmer or cooler with multiple factor causation, not just the alleged carbon ‘risk.’

Conservative Party Candidate Brad Trost, a geophysicist and economist, challenged climate change dogma to the delight of the crowd, but the NDP issued a release saying he’d ‘denied the science of climate change.’

Friends of Science Society is asking the Alberta Ethics Commissioner and Auditor General to conduct a conflict of interest inquiry into the Alberta Climate Change Plan and carbon tax, citing numerous potential conflicts.
