VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/23/13 --


Press Call Monday at 1:00pm EST
Number: 866.952.7525, Passcode: CLIMATE
International dialers: 785.424.1830



Though Canadian politicians are touting their climate record ( www.cbc.ca/news/world/story/2013/02/17/keystone-xl-protest-washi .. : www.cbc.ca/news/world/story/2013/02/17/keystone-xl-protest-washi .. ) as a way to inoculate against attacks that Keystone XL is "game over" for climate, this political rhetoric could not be further from the truth. Climate scientists in Canada and the US are expressing concern about Canada's lack of climate progress and its attempt to look environmentally progressive as a way to secure Keystone approval.



Canadian and US climate scientists will host a press call on Monday, February 25 at 1:00pm EST to address Canadian politicians' misleading rhetoric and express their concerns that Canada's much-touted oil and gas regulations will fail to do anything meaningful on climate change given the federally-allowed expansion of tar sands development and the long history of broken promises on climate action.
