Another fine read from Dennis Gruending, of which my favorite bit is:
We have to modify our profligate habits of consumption if we are to reduce carbon emissions but politicians are afraid to tell us that. In addition, the carbon industry has an immense amount of lobbying power in Canada. It effectively bankrolled the creation of the Reform Party, where our current prime minister apprenticed in politics.
The title is "Make climate change an election issue", and I guess my question to Mr. Gruending would be "How?" He mentions 80 people in a church basement who are advocating prayerful contemplation, but I guess they have faith that I do not. Unfortunately, I think Jeffrey Simpson has our current situation pegged pretty clearly, at least for the election cycle now underway.
