Canada is so Destructive

In light of my last post and the first commenter suggesting I think it's okay to destroy the planet, I thought I would share some of my personal photos taken by me this summer in the Alberta Rocky Mountains (Banff and Jasper National Parks as well as the David Thompson region) - June 28th to 30th, 2009. We are such a hateful destructive earth-destroying people. You can click on each photo to enlarge the destruction of the planet.

*Note we did not get to stay in our first 2 choices for campground because it was too cold for them to open, even though it was the very end of June*


Abraham Lake - man-made - We should be ashamed of ourselves!

Crowfoot Mountain/Bow Lake. What a disgrace!

Bow River Valley near Banff. Hideous!

Thompson Creek Recreation Area (our campground)

Abraham Lake from the David Thompson Highway. This is where I lived from ages 1 to 6- 20 mins further down the road (Nordegg). You are looking at a man-made lake which is used as a natural power source. The dam had not released all of the water yet.

Icefield Parkway between Banff and Jasper. Man's obtrusive influence?

As a destructive earth-hating Canadian, I took a helicopter trip over the Rockies, polluting the Lioness Glacier as we flew along (far right).

Freezing our butts off at the Columbia Icefield (Athabasca Glacier), who's melting has actually slowed over the past few decades when compared to 100 years ago according to signs at the site).

Peyto Lake. Froze my hands off to take these photos but well worth it.


Thompson River near Siffleur Falls. Glacial waters run deep.

  1. having my own albums of Canada's extensive pristine beauty spots (constantly updated), one cannot agree more. Clowns that sit on their duffs in jolly old, and spew such pontifications are santimonious at best, and guilty of criminal libel as well.

  2. I'm close to 70 years old and I've seen changing climate all my life. We just went through the coldest summer in about 40 years. November here in Ontario has been beautiful. We used to call this Indian Summer, now they call it global warming. I have always hated winters and when they started talking about the warming trend I had high hopes that Canada would become a decent place to live in January and February, but alas, all my hopes have been dashed. I's just another scam.

  3. I have a real problem with your last photo. It appears to me we are not working nearly hard enough to clean up that huge oil spill nature left up north.

    I understand reclaiming oil-soaked soil is actually profitable, so why in the h*ll aren't we doing it faster????

    God knows there is probably as much to do in the SK oils sands, but we haven't even begun to fix that mess, have we?

    Naughty naughty.

  4. Great Comments! thanks!

    My bf practically cheered through your entire post UsualSuspect lol. He has said pretty much the same thing for years.

    I, personally, would like to know the effect of natural occurances on the atmosphere and how they compare to human involvement. Why? Because I used to live in Elkford BC, the highest town in Canada, and after it rained my windows were literally covered with yellow dust from the numerous sulphur springs in the area. I would like to know what geysers, volcanoes, sulphur springs, etc throw up into the air and how much of an impact those have on our air/atmosphere. Perhaps if they want to make a real change, they should start plugging up the natural holes that vent off lord only knows what into our air. Surely those have a much larger effect than man-made emissions? But - it's nature right? And noooo we can't interfere with that, we'll just attack human beings instead.

  5. Good juxtaposition. As good as the stuff at Small Dead Animals!

    I understand that Greenpeace is now demonizing PM Harper, and that they altered his appearance significantly in their propaganda.

    I guess Ahmadinejad can relax, amass his arsenal of nukes, beat women to death, hang gay folks, etc., etc... 'Cause now Canada and PM Harper are the New
    Satan...

    I say, if the world doesn't like us as we are, then they can to go bloody 'ell! Who are they to expect US to take lessons from THEM? Sheesh!
