Code Red by Dr. Ned Ketyer, August 24th, 2021, Pediablog

“Skies turned hazy from Pittsburgh to Washington to Boston, as smoke from fires in Canada poured into the U.S. Northeast.”

— NASA EarthObservatory — July 21, 2021


If you are an avid watcher of TV news or regularly read a daily newspaper, you still may have missed the headlines describing the dangerous future our children and grandchildren are inheriting … from us:

The U.N.’s dire climate report confirms: We’re out of time. — Washington Post, 8/10/21

Eugene Robinson pulled his attention away from the other headlines distracting us at this crucial moment — an assortment of disappointments and debacles here and there — to convey some very bad news:

We’re out of time. It’s as simple as that.

If the world immediately takes bold, coordinated action to curb climate change, we face a future of punishing heat waves, deadly wildfires and devastating floods — and that’s the optimistic scenario, according to an alarming new U.N. report. If, on the other hand, we continue down the road of half-measures and denial that we’ve been stuck on since scientists first raised the alarm, the hellscape we leave to our grandchildren will be unrecognizable.

You don’t have to imagine how unrecognizable this world is fast becoming. The climate crisis is happening to us and our children at this very minute, says climate scientists Katherine Hayhoe and Friederike Otto:

Hotter, faster, stronger: That isn’t a tagline for the next blockbuster superhero movie. This is what climate change is doing to many extreme weather events. As the planet warms, heat waves are getting hotter, wildfires are moving faster and burning larger areas, and storms and floods are becoming stronger.

These effects are no longer a future or distant concern: They are affecting us — all of us — here and now.

The new report from the International Panel on Climate Change (I.P.C.C) — the global organization that speaks authoritatively on such matters — highlights the existential consequences for the health and safety of me, you, our children… everyone. As one might expect, it got United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres’s attention. But did it get yours?

“Today’s IPCC Working Group 1 report is a code red for humanity.  The alarm bells are deafening, and the evidence is irrefutable:  greenhouse‑gas emissions from fossil-fuel burning and deforestation are choking our planet and putting billions of people at immediate risk.  Global heating is affecting every region on Earth, with many of the changes becoming irreversible.”

The report is part of the 6th cycle of reports from the IPCC that first warned of the threat of climate change more than 30 years ago. What is most striking is that few of the bombshell conclusions from the most recent report are actually new. In fact, IPCC reports have been remarkably consistent over the decades. None of the conclusions are especially complex or terribly difficult to comprehend and accept as today’s reality. However, the more scientists learn about the planet’s climate system and the requirements necessary for keeping the miracle of life on Earth going, the louder the alarm sounds.

Reading the new IPCC report reminds us of the 10 simple words we used to describe the climate crisis on The PediaBlog more than four years ago. Considering 234 authors from 65 countries contributed to this new report, we can safely acknowledge the consensus that experts agree:

“Recent changes in the climate are widespread, rapid, and intensifying, and unprecedented in thousands of years.”

It’s real (it’s not a hoax, not even close):

“Climate change is already affecting every region on Earth, in multiple ways.

“The changes we experience will increase with further warming.”

It’s us (extracting and burning fossil fuels, mistreating the land and oceans, using the atmosphere as an open sewer, and not taking responsibility and effective action with the knowledge and skills humans already have to limit the damage):

“It is indisputable that human activities are causing climate change, making extreme climate events, including heat waves, heavy rainfall, and droughts, more frequent and severe.”

It’s bad (and getting worse):

“Unless there are immediate, rapid, and large-scale reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, limiting warming to 1.5°C will be beyond reach.

There’s hope (although, the window to change is closing fast):

“To limit global warming, strong, rapid, and sustained reductions in CO2, methane, and other greenhouse gases are necessary.

“This would not only reduce the consequences of climate change but also improve air quality.”

Professor Hayhoe captures the urgency of our predicament:

These latest IPCC conclusions couldn’t speak any louder. It’s clear we’re all in the same boat – facing a challenge that will affect every one of us within our lifetimes, not to mention future generations and most other life on Earth. The need to act collectively and decisively has never been more urgent.

Humanity (that’s you and me, and our children too) is in serious trouble. Everyone knows it, except for the contrarians, cynics, and deniers, who you can bet your last dollar, have never in their lives read a peer-reviewed scientific climate study.

Even the fossil fuel industry — the all-time champion emitters of greenhouse gases — have known for more than a half-century how their business was leading the earth into an ecological disaster, and humanity toward catastrophe. Schoolchildren were taught about what was in store for them as early as 1958 (watch this famous educational video, beginning at the 50:00 mark. Ring any bells?). Three decades later, on a hot June day in Washington, DC, a climate scientist named James Hansen testified to Congress and the rest of America about what his data was showing:

“Number one, the earth is warmer in 1988 than at any time in the history of instrumental measurements. Number two, the global warming is already large enough that we can ascribe with a high degree of confidence a cause and effect relationship to the greenhouse effect. And number three, our computer climate simulations indicate that the greenhouse effect is large enough to begin to affect the probability of extreme events such as summer heat waves. … It is changing our climate now.”

That was 33 years ago. Since then, humans have extracted and burned more than half of all the fossil fuels ever burned, emitting more than half of all the greenhouse gases ever emitted. We knew what would happen and yet we did it anyway!

It’s no wonder that today all over the world, young people are feeling discouraged if not altogether hopeless. If it’s not obvious why they think their parents have failed them, we’ll explain it on Thursday on The PediaBlog.

Gaining knowledge about climate change can be like drinking water from a fire hose. To  begin, you’ve got to find credible, evidence-based sources of information. You can start by heading over to Katherine Hayhoe’s “Global Weirding” YouTube channel here to watch some really well-produced, family-friendly short videos.

Comment from a rural Albertan on the speakers:

I can only imagine how the list of guest speakers was compiled. I think the event organizer put out a request for guest speakers with the following Twitter ad. “Public speakers wanted: anyone who has a self admitted record of political corruption, public fraud and crimes against humanity or a paid shill for future crimes against humanity but have not been charged to date. Close personal friends of Ted Bundy and sitting judges of the Hong Kong Supreme Court will not be considered because they are overqualified.”

The speakers:

Paul Martin, past PM of Canada

Stephan Buffalo, Pres & CEO IRC

Chief Billy Martin, Enoch Cree Nation

Chief Greg Desjardins, Frog Lake Cree Nation

Greg Ferguson, Pres Outcome Performance Solutions Inc.

Mike Belenke Pres & COO, Advantage Energy Ltd.

Derek Evans, Pres & CEO, Meg Energy

John Van Ham, Executive Director, InnoTech Alberta

Gary Mar, Pres & CEO, Canada West Foundation

Gary Doer, past Premier of Manitoba & past Canadian Ambassador to USA

Frank McKenna, past Premier of New Brunswick & past Canadian Ambassador to USA

Christy Clark, past Premier of British Columbia

Jean Charest, past Deputy PM of Canada

70th CEEA Energy Businness Forum, Networking Weekend & Oilmen’s Golf Tournament

The above is ghastly enough. This below takes the vomit cake. From now on, I boycott everything Marvel.

Our fearless Chairs of the 70th CEEA channeled Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee in developing this year’s theme.  Meaning “ever upward” or “still higher”, EXCELSIOR embodies the passion of our industry in continuing to push forward, reaching new heights in innovation, environmental stewardship, and collaboration with Indigenous partners and all key stakeholders.

We encourage you to incorporate this theme into your wardrobe wherever you see fit. Whether you’re shooting for style icon or good conversation starter, have fun with it!

In a more playful nod to the comic motif, the guidance for this year’s Costume Night encompasses the Superhero universe.  Fire up your creativity and hone your supernatural powers… it’s sure to be a night filled with caped crusaders, all-star mutants, and friendly neighborhood crimefighters!


This palette of colours is provided to complement the theme and give inspiration to your wardrobe.

Why isn’t Ex Supreme Court of Canada Justice Rosalie Abella speaking? She could wear white and pretend she served justice in Ernst vs AER.

Social Event Details:

The Energy Executive Conference is held annually in later summer in Banff. As a result of being in the Rocky Mountains, the weather can fluctuate between +5°C and +30°C even in the month of August. Remember to check the weather forecast before leaving home.

What to Pack

In order to help you get started, we have compiled this basic list for your reference.

For the Ladies:

A formal dress or evening gown for the Saturday night Evening of Champions
Cocktail dress or business casual attire for other evening dinners
Hiking clothes if you are going to do any hiking (layers are always good)
Summer golf clothing to fit the theme
A warm jacket/ rain jacket/ vest
Thin or light mitts

For the Men:

Tuxedo for the Saturday night Evening of Champions (don’t forget your cufflinks!)
Business attire for the other evening dinners
Golf clothes with a lot of layers to cover everything from cool mountain mornings to hot summer afternoons.

For All:

Costumes for Friday night – Have fun with it and remember that no costume is too crazy!
The theme for the costume night emerges from the conference theme of “Excelsior” and encompasses the Superhero universe. Costumes may be part of a group or individual in nature. You can design your own costume or visit The Costume shoppe in advance in Calgary, or on site at the hotel where they will be available to assist guests. (Refer to “Theme & Wardrobe Inspiration” tab for more info).


If you wish to make appointments for hair/makeup please note there will be no onsite stylists this year.

Salon 1463: 1-403-762-0440
Please book early to secure your spot!


As this is a unique year, some things will be a little different. In an attempt to reduce the cost of attending the event, breakfast and lunch will not be included in the Networking Weekend & Oilmen’s Golf Tournament. The Fairmont Banff Springs has numerous options for you at the main hotel, as well as at the Golf Clubhouse. This may also factor into your consideration of which hotel room you wish to book, with Gold Floor rooms enjoying access to breakfast/coffee/tea/snacks.
