Visiting Mexican president Felipe Calderon has a pretty blunt message for Stephen Harper - stop dragging your knuckles on global warming. Calderon told his host that Mexico and much of the rest of the world can't accept the rich nations' indifference to climate change.
“In Mexico, we cannot wait. We cannot wait for the developed countries to make a decision,” the Mexican President said at a joint press conference with Mr. Harper. “Some of them, like the U.S., could take another eternity to decide on what they had decided since the Kyoto Protocol.”
“We know that the quality of life, and the future, is at risk. And I mean the future of a great deal of humanity.”
Harper dodged Calderon's complaints, noting Canada's non-existent progress on implementing carbon capture and sequestration technologies for the Athabasca Tar Sands. Harper's typically lame and disingenuous excuses rank up there with "the dog ate my homework." Gee, I wonder if Steve's momma trained him to be such an inveterate liar or if he mastered the art all on his own?
