New column day

Here, on how the Libs' carbon price rollout managed to maximize the resulting sound and fury while signifying little actual progress.

For further reading...
- Marc Lee offered a reality check on the minimal effect of Justin Trudeau's price announcement, with reference to Marc Jaccard's study here (PDF). And Karri Munn-Venn also pointed out how a small carbon price falls short of what we need to rein in Canada's contribution to catastrophic climate change.
- Meanwhile, Bruce Cheadle reported on the disruption Trudeau caused to the meeting of Canada's environment ministers - even if Murray Mandryk was right to note that Brad Wall is utterly without credibility in complaining that his own obstruction isn't stopping all progress. And Aaron Wherry commented on the political fallout from the timing of Trudeau's announcement.
- Finally, Bill McKibben wrote about the current state of the climate, while George Monbiot commented here on the need to stop developing new fossil fuel projects.
