Harper Owes Us A Plan

From Simon Donner, of UBC:

For about a decade, the explanation for a lack of coherent Canadian climate policy was the lack of a coherent American climate policy. How could our federal government move forward with actions like regulations, carbon pricing, renewable portfolio standards, international agreements or adaptation plans without our largest trading partner and BFF?  


Now the U.S has a plan. No, it is not perfect, but it is far more advanced that any plan proposed by any sitting President or Prime Minister.

The ball is in our court. Time for Canada, time for Canadians, to define "as appropriate".

Indeed.  We are waiting, Mr. Prime Minister.

Harper is planning. PostMedia has released online a trove of documents detailing meetings that have been underway for more than a year exploring geo-engineering options.

This is a government that, even as it privately accepts that man-made global warming is upon us, wants to find solutions in the very worst reaches of disaster capitalism.
