If you’re looking for prairie dog‘s Global Warming Skeptic’s Declaration, here is a direct link to it. (Or you can click the image at left to download it.)
Until now, it’s been kind of buried at the bottom of a page of our climate science coverage. (If you want to read more of what we have to say on the topic, click the “climate change” tag attached to this post.)
Please, feel free to print off the Declaration and send it to your climate-science denying friends, your local climate-science denying radio pundit, your Conservative MP, Glen Beck. Get them to sign it, send it in to us and strike a blow for (their mangled version of) the truth.
We’ll keep all the Declarations on file and if in 15 years it turns out climate change wasn’t such a big deal, we will, with joy in our hearts and egg on our faces but mostly hearts full of joy, admit we were wrong.
But if global warming turns out to be not just real but catastrophic?
Well, then we’ll know who to blame….

A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.
We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
