1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A story about a little girl and her orangutan friend, based on the Greenpeace film that became a viral sensation. When a little girl discovers a mischievous orangutan on the loose in her bedroom, she can't understand why it keeps shouting OOO! at her shampoo and her chocolate. But when Rang-tan explains that there are humans running wild in her rainforest, burning down trees so they can grow palm oil to put in products, the little girl knows what she has to do: help save the orangutans! Published in collaboration with Greenpeace, featuring a foreword from Dame Emma Thompson and brought to life by award-winning illustrator Frann Preston-Gannon, this is a very special picture book with a vital message to share. Extra pages at the back include information about orangutans and palm oil plus exciting ideas about how young readers can make a difference

Energy [r]evolution : a sustainable world energy outlook by European Renewable Energy Council( )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Everyday, millions of people whose stories you won't hear are suffering the direct effects of our addiction to fossil fuels. Asthma, cancer, mutiliated ecosystems, devastated communities--these are the hidden costs of our backward energy system, and we're paying those costs right now, whether we know it or not. Unfortunately, the worst is yet to come. According to the Nobel-prize winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, we must peak global warming pollution by 2015 and nearly eliminate it by mid-century. If we fail to do so, we risk crossing tipping points in the climate system that could bring about devastating droughts, floods, sea level rise, storms, and wildfires. We are altering the fundamental systems that make our planet habitable. ... We must decide that enough is enough, and we must take real, bold, immediate action."--Forward
Out of stock : supermarkets and the future of seafood by Elizabeth Hunter( )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Canadian consumers want fresh, affordable seafood, but it is time to consider the environmental cost to our fish stocks and ourselves."
The rainbow spill : a case of crime and (no) punishment by Keith Stewart( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On April 28, 2011, 28,000 barrels of oil were spilled near the Lubicon Cree community of Little Buffalo in the Peace River region of Alberta. The Rainbow Pipeline spill was one of the largest spills in provincial history, but it should not have been. An alarm indicating a leak first went off in the Plains Midstream control room at 6:32 p.m. on April 28, and the pipeline was shut down at 7:22 p.m. The pipeline, however, was subsequently restarted three times after that thanks to what the ERCB investigation report describes as the company's "practice of placing higher priority on continued operation of the pipeline over any potential impacts related to a pipeline leak." In this report, we assess some specific examples of the provincial government and/or regulator taking actions which appear to be more focused on protecting the oil industry's reputation than on protecting the environment or affected communities, and then turn to the broader systemic issue of regulatory capture
Crisis in our forests : a case study of AbitibiBowater's irresponsible forestry in the English River Forest by Kim Fry( )

Dirty oil : how the tar sands are fueling the global climate crisis by Andrew Nikiforuk( )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The unrestrained release of greenhouse gases (GHGs) from the burning of fossil fuels now threatens the political stability of human civilization. Every year, climate change kills approximately 300,000 people and costs the global economy more than $100 billion. Even the most conservative of predictions for the future anticipates that extreme weather events combined with food and water shortages and increased diseases could unravel many nation states by 2040. While most scientific experts now call for radical reductions in GHGs (by 80 per cent) by 2050, many nations remain reluctant to change course. The favourable outcome of United Nations Climate Change Conference talks aimed at establishing a new global carbon treaty, to be held in Copenhagen this December, is in doubt. The greatest threat to our future, argues famed Canadian political scientist Thomas Homer Dixon, is not "that our fossil fuel economy will disappear but that it will endure."
A failing grade : the McGuinty government's management of public forests by Freya Putt( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many Ontarians hoped and expected that Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty would bring substantial improvements to ecological protection throughout the province once he came into office in 2003. While making a promise to put forward a land protection and development plan for the north of the province was laudable, Premier McGuinty's actions and those of his government are falling far short of sustainable management in the southern Boreal Forest. Under the oversight of his ministers of natural resources, the Boreal Forest ecosystem, which is a major store of fresh water, critical habitat for a wide variety of species, and an important carbon storehouse, has continued to be fragmented and degraded. Premier McGuinty has an important opportunity to act, but time is running out

Harper's shell game : why tar sands pipelines are not in Canada's national interest( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline from Alberta's tar sands to the British Columbia coast has become a major political flashpoint because it is vital to achieving Prime Minister Stephen Harper's ambition of transforming Canada into a tar sands based "energy superpower. To realize this vision, the Harper government has teamed up with multinational oil companies in an unprecedented assault on nature and democracy. This report uses documents obtained under Access to Information legislation and from the public record to explore how and why one oil company has joined with the Harper government in an aggressive "Oil Sands Advocacy Strategy" that aims to undermine environmental legislation in Canada, the United States and Europe
