Amy Snider noticed an accidental double comma in last issue’s Science Matters column, “We’ve Got Solutions”, which was full of suggestions to tackle human-caused climate change (which, contrary to what today’s conservatives say, is both real and an imminent threat to civilization). As a result, she now has a cool Typo Wiener t-shirt and a copy of Vic Cicansky’s new book Up From Garlic Flats courtesy Typo Wiener sponsor Radiant Press (radiantpress.ca). Happy day!
Amy is an EAL instructor, ceramicist, nature-lover and member of EnviroCollective, a new-ish group focussed on grassroots environmental initiatives and activism. This David Suzuki fan suggests you visit www.envirocollective.ca to learn about upcoming events such as the Sept, 20–27 climate strike. Because did you hear? Global warming is real. We need to take action, and quit whining about carbon taxes.
CLIMATE CHANGE IS REAL Spot a typo in this issue and e-mail the details to firstname.lastname@example.org (write TYPO in the subject field). Please include the page it was on, and the article and sentence it was in. Typos include misspelled words (including names), garbled grammar and general gibberish. Factual errors don’t count but formatting mistakes do. To be eligible, typos must be in editorial content such as articles, listings, headlines and photo cutlines. Next deadline is Tuesday, Aug. 6. The wiener (who will be alerted by e-mail) must fill out a short Q&A and be available to meet at a downtown park, coffee shop or miscellaneous shady location TBD to collect their prize and pose for a picture. Good luck, and climate change is real!
