(Other news) Despite of cuts in Education: teachers will still teach in Alberta

Picture 1 More red flags for Alberta’s denial and Government’s responsibility on climate change and energy policies. The CBC local headline might state: “German Scientific group withdrew from a joint oilsands research project”  or “Canada’s environmental record creates negative public backlash in Germany”. However for the local press the good news is that international groups like this one, investing and innovating in the province, are not leaving (yet).

The recent announcement of a “miscalculation of incomes from oilsands revenues for this year” –that has lead to  cuts in the provincial budget, affecting education, health and the economic climate– is at least an embarrassing situation for a province plenty of renewable resources, land, infraestructure and tools for better planning. It is a crude call for the people who manage the future of Albertans and also a proof of how distorted is the vision of decision makers in Alberta (in tune with Canada’s federal government) about the planetary crisis we face and the environmental and social consequences of ignoring the crisis.
