If journalists want to understand what frustrates environmental scientists nothing better demonstrates what is troubling than the news story I have seen re-tweeted numerous times today. It typifies what is wrong with environmental journalism. #bcpoli #abpoli #cdnpol @sjmuir

Some in Alberta protesting about pipelines not getting built yesterday is not only silly , it's downright dangerous. Why now ? The Harper clowns had 10 years to facilitate the construction of pipelines and did nothing. #cdnpol #abpoli
Cons try to make these protest look like some kind of grass root movement but in reality they are the ones that conceived the narrative & funded it as well , most likely with foreign money from Koch brothers or other dark sources , Russia perhaps , who knows for sure. #cdnpoli
