Re: “Dissent in the Shambhala community

"While a shift in connection can be painful, the antidote to it is not to start a blogsite to complain about the teacher with whom you haven't connected - esp. when that teacher has been so well-trained, is so well-respected and has been confirmed and supported in his important role by many other important, respected, authentic teachers - but either to make a sincere attempt to connect, or to follow the teachings of another teacher - or just to ask a teacher whom one does respect what to do about one's feelings of lack of connection! It's also just the polite and decent thing to do."

I think questioning the credentials of a teacher is essential to a free society.

Re: “The always-on stalker

Anyone planning a demo? Would it be helpful to offer company or bodyguarding for these women? Trying to think what would be helpful right now.

Re: “Sadface about sad-sack sex

Leather folk were in the acronym? That's news to me. I am honoured, but also slightly skeptical of the larger Queer community feels the same.

Re: “Let’s start growing food to eat on our public lands

All sorts of laws need to be changed to allow for more effective foodsheds in Halifax. For example, Jean Snow's Lake City farm, which grows vegetables out of the backyards of her neighbours to feed members of a CSA, is still against bylaws. The community garden application process was developed as a compromise between citizens and the city's bureaucracy and it is still underutilized. The city is likely to point to community gardens as its preferred approach. We need much more pressure and enthusiasm from the public to have a solution like this take place.

Re: “Bros before bros in dresses

I would caution TIMELY strongly to check for allergies before getting an IUD. I've heard of women having horrific reactions to to copper or other allergies and I don't know if these are tested for before implanting. Thanks.

Re: “Transition period

Chris Benjamin's article on the Transition Movement was timely. I would like to alert Haligonians of a local Transition effort called Transition Halifax, formed a few weeks ago. In our first year we are holding a skill-sharing workshop, a show at Nocturne, food groups for the bulk ordering of local produce and food-bearing plants, film screenings and presentations. Watch for our website, coming soon, detailing our activities. If you would like to get involved in the steering committee contact velveteyeball@gmail.com.

Re: “Halifax environmentalists prepare for Copenhagen

Actually, Murder Junkie, it has been proven that climate change is anthropogenic,
and that CO2 has led to climate change


it is a myth that scientists are in disagreement as to the cause or the reality of climate change. In fact CO2e levels have risen by 80% in the last 50 years, that's CO2 , that's more than ten times faster than at any time in the last 22'000 years

From where do you find "expected cyclical cooling trends", I've never heard such a thing.
Cooling might be caused by meltwater in the ocean from Greenland shutting down the thermohaline conveyer belt. When that has happened before it's killed off Ancient cultures (research the fall of old kingdon Egypt and Akkhad) and also extended the last ice age by 1'000 years.
