Threat: words devoted to fighting it

Universal access to assault rifles and armour-piercing bullets should help us adapt to a changing climate. Maintaining access to both, with no pesky waiting periods, is something “we have a sacred duty to protect,” after all.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

  1. Watch the video on the climate change page linked:

    “Teddy Rosevelt was a great environmentalist.

    Ronald Reagan was an environmentalist.

    Somehow we [Republicans] have lost our way on the environment.

    I believe climate change is real. I think it’s devastating. I think we have to act, and I agree with most experts that we may at some point reach a tipping point where we cannot save our climate. I don’t think we’re there yet. But, the overwhelming evidence is that greenhouse gasses are contributing to warming of our Earth and we have an obligation to take action to fix it.

    I believe that America did the right thing by not joining the Kyoto treaty, but I believe that if we could get China and India into it … they should seriously consider on our terms… joining with every other nation in the world to try to reduce greenhouse gasses. It’s got to be a global effort.”

    The gun stuff is just to fend off attacks from the idiot right.

  2. I wasn’t trying to villify John McCain personally, just encourage reflection on a few things – not least among them, the odd nature of the American Republican Party and political system as a whole.
