He came. He hid. He bombed.
Canada’s 2020 target is among the worst in the industrialized world, and leaked cabinet documents revealed that the governments is contemplating a cap-and-trade plan so weak that it would put even that target out of reach.
Canada’s performance here in Copenhagen builds on two years of delay, obstruction and total inaction. This government thinks there’s a choice between environment and economy, and for them, tar sands beats climate every time.
And Canada was embarrassed. Again.
Once we were seen as a decent people, who tried to help heal the wounds of this world. Now we're seen by many as greedy planet destroyers, dirty oil pimps, torture pigs, and the last of the Bush Cons.
Think of it...in thirty years when the betrayed generation looks back in anger at this pitiful deal.
"The city of Copenhagen is a crime scene tonight, with the guilty men and women fleeing to the airport...It is now evident that beating global warming will require a radically different model of politics than the one on display here in Copenhagen."
There will be Stephen Harper's bobble head staring back at them, at the Colossal Fossil Awards... that Canada WON.
Oh well. At least there was some comic relief. The desperate attempts by the Harper Gang to get a photo-op, a pat on the back, a doggie bone, from Obama and his people.
And the equally desperate attempts by the Obama people to avoid being photographed with the Calgary Oil pimp.
And who can blame them eh?
How can they hope to spin failure into victory, with Harper in their corner...or in their pocket. They know a
When will Canadians see the same danger ? Recognize the terrible damage Harper and his hideous Cons are doing to the reputation and soul of this country.
Which reminds me... at least we have this to look forward to next week..
Because after this disgusting Con performance it should be obvious, that if we're going to help save the planet.
We're going to have to save Canada first...
