Alberta stunner

The Globe and Mail is reporting an ambitious carbon emissions reduction plan for the Alberta bitumen industry. Very interesting turn of events.

I would like to write a bit more on it but am off today to the American Society for Environmental History annual conference. The program is here. I’m presenting on Aldo Leopold and not a lot has changed since I wrote the abstract, except that I found another reference to pragmatism left out of (if you follow it) an ongoing debate between Bryan Norton and J. Baird Callicott.

Last night’s talk at Acadia University was great. Some good questions and a chance to meet up with David Duke, Alice Cohen and Andrew Biro, who all do some really interesting work.
