Sign of the times: the Green Party, who won their first federal election seat in 2011, won their first provincial election seat this week in B.C. – in both cases, for ridings on Vancouver island. Always wondered how badly we’d need to mismanage the environment to get the Green Party elected. And now we know: about 30 years of mismanagement … as far as folks living on their own islands are concerned, anyways. Perhaps, Google’s new 30-year, time-lapse satellite images will help get the rest of us mainlanders behind the environmental cause before it’s too late. Can’t imagine where we’ll be in the next 30 years if we don’t.
