Did you feel as ashamed of our government as I did when Harper’s minister responsible for sprucing up the tar sands image (aka the environment) dumped Kyoto overboard this week?
Does anyone believe for a second that the Harper government has any intention of doing anything meaningful on climate change, ever? 2015? Please spare me the BS on top of the insults.
Will the Greens and the Liberals ever realize that it is more important to stop Harper and begin to make some progress on climate change than it is to engage in the abstract exercise of finding the perfect climate change policy.
Okay, that sentence was too long.
But I am so tired of giving Harper an electoral free pass to do whatever he wants to the environment, just because no party has the perfect policy package to combat climate change.
The best thing we can do to fight climate change is back the party that has the best opportunity to defeat Harper and do something meaningful to reduce greenhouse gases, even if it’s not perfect.
The same goes for BC. The fools who bought into the BC Liberal smoke and mirrors machine on climate change owe the rest of us. It’s time to get behind the electoral alternative with a reasonable chance of winning government and doing something/anything positive for the environment. And that ain’t the Greens.
Sorry for the rant. It’s just that it’s been such a bad week for the environment… And with Christy Clark in BC and Harper in Ottawa it’s only going to get worse.
