A Petition Worth Signing

In a few short weeks, the Conservative government will end 45 years of internationally recognized Canadian-based research into ozone depletion – unless you raise your voice to stop them.

I actually used my real name for this one.  Although I must say I don't like this bit from their on-line pitch letter:

Each year, larger holes are appearing and we still don’t know why.

Well, the Antarctic hole has apparently stabilized; the arctic hole is kind of a new thing. 

Nevertheless, the federal Tories are, as per usual, dealing with environmental issues by literally destroying our means of understanding them.  Once again, ideology wins out over science.
