New column day

Here, on Brad Wall's off-key lobbying against action on climate change - and why we should see the bright side of having the Obama administration push us toward more sound environmental policy when far too many Canadian leaders have failed in their responsibilities.

For further reading...
- Wall's simultaneous lobbying for automatic pipeline approval and against any further Canadian action on climate change can be found here (see in particular the video clip to the right) and here.
- Jeffrey Simpson and Tzeporah Berman have made similar points about the value of the U.S.' message linking Canadian climate change policy to approvals for new pipelines.
- And on the subject of inaction at home, here's the Ministry of the Environment's climate change page - proudly left without updates since February 16, 2011. Here's the Ministry's list of press releases - with this announcement of an "equivalency agreement" presented as the only mention of climate change since the 2011 election.

    Its interesting isn't it that the main business of Alberta and Sask, bitumen and potash respectively, are hazardous to the environment and pollute to such an extent, that the web of life itself is threatened, as so are we. I'm hoping that the words and images of leaders, such as Wall and Harper, will so enrage people, in say twenty years time, that they will be charged with and convicted of crimes against humanity. For these two and the many brave deniers out there, who are making names and money for themselves, they better hope that a death penalty won't be demanded.
