If you want the big picture on Canada's response to climate change, this Mondaq brief does a better job than any MSM article I've read. There are a couple of interesting things in the report. For example, Alberta's establishment of a domestic carbon offset market, which has driven a sudden interest in no till farming, is commendable, but needs IMHO to be expanded beyond provincial borders. Offsets only work if there are enough viable projects around to pour money into, and the further afield you can go to find such projects, the better. For the same reason, the Federal Tories should allow regulated companies to invest more heavily in international CDM projects. Fortunately, the brief concludes that:
With numerous new initiatives springing up south of the border as well, and with the tendency of Canadian jurisdictions to favor regional integration, the only thing that is certain is that the regulatory climate will continue to change rapidly.
That's probably it for today. Real life is expected to intrude big time. But maybe, if you're all good, I'll post some nudie pics later.
