An article on energy security we just published in BC online magazine The Tyee has generated a spirited and interesting debate in the comments section about not only energy issues, but also the concept of Cascadia, economic colonization, the nature of transboundary environmental issues, migration, and a few other small issues.
A couple of excerpts:
"There is no Cascadia, there is BC, Canada, USA, Washington & Oregon State, etc…and may each keep their respective sovereignties"
"The fish, bugs, and forests don’t recognize political boundaries; neither do greenhouse gases or smog."
"Raw logs, minerals and oil move across the border with impunity while people, who for some reason actually want to travel south of the 49th into Disneyworld, are subjected to all forms of gross indecencies. They’re considered terrorists until proven otherwise."
