Made-in-Alberta Newsletter Nov. 9, 2009

Nov. 9, 2009

1. “Greening the Grid Part Three”
Replacing coal-fired electricity with renewable energy sources makes perfect environmental sense. Tim discusses some of the economic factors and new developments affecting this decision, while Albertans continue to ask for efficient and renewable energy programs.

2. Join YouTube and comment on MIA (and a billion videos!)
When you click the link in item #1 to watch this week’s episode, you will see that we have put the YouTube version on there instead of the usual Flash. This means you are actually watching the video streaming from YouTube’s web site, playing through the “skin” of the RBCC/Made-in-Alberta web site. If you click the YouTube icon on the bottom of the video, it will transfer you to YouTube’s own web site – with this week’s episode still playing. From there, you can log in and leave a comment, which we will read and respond to. If you don’t have an account, it’s free and easy to set one up. Problems?
Phone Bruce 24/7 at 780-964-5567.
(Some businesses block YouTube on their networks. We’ll upload the Flash version next week.)

3. Copenhagen: Climate Leadership, Economic Prosperity
The Pembina Institute and David Suzuki Foundation studied how Canada can achieve CO2e reductions of 25% below our 1990 level by the year 2020. This is enough for the “2 degrees” global warming limit, which the IPCC “hopes” will avoid catastrophic climate change after 2050. We can do this - while growing our economy and improving our quality of life -  but strong government policies are required.

4. Barb’s Field Notes: What do you think?
Made-in-Alberta is for you. Please take a few minutes to try the YouTube commenting described above or send me an email. (We can upload the comment for you.) Do you like the content we’re running these days? Do you like the new, mixed media format? What would you like to see on the show? Let’s talk.
