New column day

Here, on how Brad Wall is again joining Stephen Harper in putting oil lobbying over the public interest - making excuses for doing absolutely nothing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and combat climate change.

For further reading...
- I've written before about the federal Cons' apparent strategy of standing in the way of consensus on action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. And lest there be any doubt, the Cons have been well aware of both the need for action in order to keep their own promises - and have  responded by slashing Environment Canada for telling inconvenient truths.
- Meanwhile, the provincial picture doesn't look any better. In fact, since I posted this column last year, the province's climate change page has changed locations without any evidence of new action (other than a changing set of excuses).
- Finally, it's always worth examining how our political system is so thoroughly devoted to serving a few corporate masters. And Murray Dobbin and Dr. Dawg are both worth a read on that point.
