I got to thinking, PM Harper has done as little as possible to appease the loony Marxist global warming alarmists. He never implemented Pablo's Kyoto bill, has declared very limited emissions targets, and he and Jim Prentice has stated time after time we are going to follow what the USA is doing primarily because we are so closely tied. Basically we have to. If we don't, they could impose tariffs on us particularly on our oil and gas industry as the Americans see it as dirty. Looks like it will be awhile, if at all that the Americans will ever have a bill in place. In the mean time the IPCC fraud is imploding.
I don't think we will have to much worry about. Peter Foster from the NP doesn't either.
"But if President Obama really wants to imitate such craziness, does that make the Harper government even wackier for committing to follow in U.S. policy footsteps, a plan outlined again yesterday by Environment Minister Jim Prentice?
No. The Conservatives have committed to do whatever the U.S. does when it comes to cutting carbon dioxide emissions, but their main priority is to avoid destructive trade sanctions. They are also aware that President Obama has a major fight on his hands in pursuing what increasingly appears to be an expensive and pointless policy. Copenhagen was a flop. Climategate still hovers. The IPCC is increasingly becoming a laughing stock, and the science of man-made climate change is disintegrating. While political inertia continues to edge policy towards the economic precipice, the Harper government is hoping it will grind to a halt before taking Western nations over."
The Harper government has so far done a good job of negotiating its way round this all too “religious” issue.
