How About That! Former Government Energy and Climate Change Secretary LIED!

Ozone hole affecting Antarctic's carbon absorption rates | RTCC - Responding to Climate Change
The discovery is important because the Antarctic accounts for about 40% of the total carbon absorbed by the world’s seas.
...Michael Meredith, a British Antarctic Survey oceanographer, said the new research drove home the importance of the Southern Ocean carbon sink. “It’s doing us a very big favour, if you like, by taking carbon from the atmosphere and slowing the rate of atmospheric climate change,” he said.

He believes the question now is what will happen as the ozone layer slowly heals and human activities pump out increasing amounts of greenhouse gases. The ozone hole is expected, on present trends, to have recovered by mid-century.
Double standards: If David Suzuki were a conservative, his career would be over, and his college enablers, too | Columnists | Opinion | Toronto Sun
On Tuesday in this space, I broke the news that David Suzuki — who condemns capitalism at every turn — billed a Quebec junior college $30,000 for a speech last October. Including expenses, Suzuki cost John Abbott College a whopping $41,640.

Maybe he’s worth it. He is a celebrity, after all. But it’s unseemly, from such a vicious critic of conspicuous capitalism.

The real scandal, though, was a request made by Suzuki’s assistant. According to Mary Milburn of the dean’s office, “we have learned, via Dr. Suzuki’s assistant, that although the Dr. does not like to have bodyguards per se, he does not mind having a couple of ladies (females) that would act as body guards.”
