Re: “Stop giving to street-walking panhandlers

It's a seasonal thing. Now they'll be coming out like deer ticks over the summer. Always check their footwear. If it's better than yours, be suspicious. There's a lot of rich kids who do this for kicks & drug money.

Britney is so over, mate. For one thing, she's older than dirt.

Climate deniers are like evangelical Christians - incredibly stupid.

Re: “Yo, balloon boy

Chances are the old lady forgot about the balloon. I mean, come on, how much fucking attachment can you have to a goddamn balloon?! Unless, of course, it was her security balloon.

Re: “Streets as garbage bins

Spare me the inventory. It's a wide spread problem - people with a sense of entitlement use our earth as their personal garbage pit & they honestly don't give a shit. It was that way 50 years ago in that neighbourhood (where I grew up) & holds true today. Maybe the city should establish a permanent cleaning crew to pick up street trash.

Re: “The curse of Bill Lynch

I was told by my family as a kid. That the fair was cursed by a native years ago. My grand dad uses to work for him..setting up rides. And hauling them all around to exibations. I was told the person was upset with him. And curses the fair so everytime they set it up and tore it down it would rain.

Re: “Best of all

Perhaps this person has realized that you did not have within your own heart the capacity to love another human being more than your need to portray yourself as one who only cared about monetary things in life, as well as your constant fear of not being seen as "Cool". In order to find true love and acceptance one must be able to risk showing true vulnerability. When one is not able to show their true self, the other begins to lose interest as they constantly feel that they have been used for your personal entertainment. Not appreciated for all of the love, kindness, and beauty, that they were at one time willing to share with you. We often project our own feelings and insecurities on those whom we care about. Could it be that perhaps the other person involved could have also seen you as being "Emotionally Unavailable"? One's intellect should not be the only thing in question when the heart cares. It is also very possible that in putting so much distance between yourself and "said person" they just finally realized that they were of no importance to you. Just a little something to think about. As well as that in life it, is my feeling that respect is a two way street. I wish you well in life and in love. Please always remember that life is an unending school in which we constantly continue to evolve.

Re: “Letters to the editor, May 16, 2019

The esteemed Peter Martyn, living in our midst, more a climate expert than 99.9% of the world's climatologists. All hail to thee. As for me, I'll stick with the masses of real experts. They're called scientists. They measure things. They do equations. They prove their theories through testing and significance. Better yet, ask a few local farmers how hard it is to grow food now. I believe them as well.

Re: “Florida man comes all the way to Nova Scotia to yell at Emera

Solar and battery is what's needed in the sunshine state.

FPL figured it out, which is why they are building the world's largest battery just 20 miles south of the coal plant these people are fighting

Maybe they would be happier with a coal fired power generating system in Florida. Or a hydro dam somewhere in the Everglades?

Re: “Letters to the editor, May 16, 2019

In other enviro media news, The Guardian just changed its style guide to encourage reporters to write with more urgency and precision about environmental issues. They now prefer "climate crisis" instead of "climate change," and "global heating" over "global warming." And instead of saying this letter is from a "climate skeptic," they'd use the term "climate science denier."

Re: “Letters to the editor, May 16, 2019

I guess Peter Martyn wasn't around in the 1960s when the kids were having nightmares about nuclear annihilation? Or the 1940s when Europe was being blown up, or the 1910s .... The kids are the future, let's support them in their fight.
And two more words to ponder: species extinction.

Re: “Halifax is a garbage dump

I agree people shouldn't litter. But what did you do about it?? Unless you are willing to help with the solution don't bitch about the problem. If you did do something about it like picked some up, then good on you.

Re: “How Nova Scotia can move forward from 300 years of coal and fossil fuel extraction

Excellent article. The only obstruction to what the people want is politicians and big business who fund their egos.

Re: “Letters to the editor, May 16, 2019

Is this a parody? If I had a nickel for every embarrassing climate denier who thinks "critical thinking" means "tells me what I want to hear", I'd be quite wealthy. Nobody better challenge Petey's irrational worldview, folks, it's scaring the kids.

Re: “Letters to the editor, May 16, 2019

There are ample evidence that are branched out from scientist, environmentalist, animal activist, and so forth that could easily disclaim that climate change is a serious issue that should be addressed. The fact that youth are fighting for the planet instead of taking their latest "selfie" is showing that we truly see all the proven evidence that the human population is, indeed, warming up the planet. It is gone to the point that the new Canadian food guide recommends eating less meat to help reduce our carbon footprint.
The older generations that are turning their back on this issue a major reason why youth are taking such "extreme" measures to display their worry about future generations.

Re: “Mom with ocean-coloured hair

Sounds very much like our childcare provider.
All the kids go busing on adventures on a regular basis. She is awesome. If it was not her, she is still awesome.
