    “The Tide May Be Turning on Climate Change.” Captain Paul Watson, Founder of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society http://www.huffingtonpost.com/paul-watson/the-tide-may-be-turning-o_b_8565500.html “…What has changed and changed significantly are the positions held by Australia and Canada. Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, the very hostile climate change denier who declared that coal was good for humanity and climate change was “crap,” has been ignobly ousted by his own party, replaced by a more intelligent and reasonable Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. This means that Australia will at least listen.
    However the recent election in Canada was in fact a climate change revolution. Prime Minster Stephen Harper, the darling of the fossil fuel industry, was turfed out in a dramatic turnaround with the election of a young and “with it, gets it” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Canadian scientists were immediately un-muzzled and Canada has created the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change under a very progressive Catherine McKenna.
    The tide has turned from a notoriously aggressive climate change-denying Canadian regime to a government that is taking the problem very seriously. President Francois Hollande now has the opportunity to host a conference that could for the first time address the real threats to our environment and if it does so, this will be the most important conference in the history of humanity.
