Canada’s Cold Amazon: The Rosenberg Forum Examines the Significance of the Mackenzie River Basin

October 31, 2012

Wildlands Advocate Article, October 2012, by Robert W. Sandford. Concern over the Mackenzie River system led the Rosenburg Forum on Water Policy, and its panel of experts, to inform the current negotiations of agreements between British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Northwest Territories.

“What is at stake is the ultimate state of one of the world’s most important northern rivers, a river system scientifically described as a lynch-pin of water-ice-climate interactions that create relative climatic stability not just in southern Canada but throughout the world.”

There is an urgent need to engage people with nature. All aspects of it. Not just the pretty bears and cute snakes. Also the realities of it, the death, struggles, and pain. Not only are people losing touch with nature, they are losing touch with the realities of nature.
