Greenpeace Sends a Message to the World

Wow. I have to admit I LOVE the way Greenpeace decorated the halls roof of Parliament.

What a great message.

And what a great video to share with the planet.

It helps make up for this latest humiliation.

Canada had the dubious honour Monday of being one of the countries to win the Fossil of the Day award, which is presented by non-governmental groups at the Copenhagen conference to countries they deem laggards on the environment.

By showing the world that we're not all greedy oil hogs like the Cons. That a lot of us care about the planet. And that some of us are prepared to do more than just sit there and watch it burn.

When the stakes are so high.

The science is complex but the facts are clear. The world needs to take steps to limit temperature rises to 2C, an aim that will require global emissions to peak and begin falling within the next 5-10 years. A bigger rise of 3-4C — the smallest increase we can prudently expect to follow inaction — would parch continents, turning farmland into desert. Half of all species could become extinct, untold millions of people would be displaced, whole nations drowned by the sea.

And what I also liked about the Greenpeace action, was that it reduced Stephen Harper's latest neverending campaign photo-op to the status of a third rate story.

And at a time when the world is focusing on Copenhagen, it made him look even more ridiculous...and environmentally irresponsible.

I mean what do you call a guy who is willing to poison his own province?

And does this mean he's going to follow Obama and declare this dangerous pollution a health hazard?

The agency's announcement Monday paves the way for government regulation of emissions even without congressional approval.

Heh heh heh. You know I think I'm going to enjoy this climate summit a lot eh?

Even before it started the Cons looked like fossils. By time it's over they'll look like CRIMINALS.

Woohoo!!! Deck out the roof halls of Parliament.

Christmas is coming EARLY....


BONUS: You know about that so-called Climategate affair that has the Con deniers in a foaming frenzy? Well somebody in Copenhagen did mention the hacked e-mails today.

The representative from SAUDI ARABIA.

So much for Climategate. So much for the Cons. Whose side are they on ANYWAY?
