30 By 30 - Rachel, You've Got Some Catching Up To Do.

It's hard to know whether to laugh or cry but the feds have finally proclaimed Canada's target for greenhouse gas emissions cuts.  The figure is a 30% reduction from 2005 levels by 2030.

Harper & Co. are playing this true to form.  They're trying to take credit from the provinces that have taken action with precious little help from Ottawa.

As for Harper's pet, the Tar Sands, the feds are introducing regulations on methane emissions but have fallen strangely silent on CO2 emissions.  Did I say "strangely"?  I meant "predictably."

Yes, predictable. It is smoke and mirrors for the coming election. There won't be any serious enforcement. Oh, they might stop you and I from barbecuing dinner but there isn't the slightest chance they will go after big oil in any meaningful way. They also won't do anything to promote a switch from carbon fuels to clean energy.

The disgusting part of this is that Harper will go into the election pretending to be Mr. Clean and his supporters will believe every word.

Good plan by Harper - by 2030. :) By 2030 he will be long gone and not accountable what happened. It is unfortunate and sad state of affairs.

The Fed Cons just screwed the Alberta Dippers BADLY. This is how they work: cold, petty and childish.

Anyong said... is all done for themselves. He wanted the power he has it and he is going to keep it. With each PM since Trudeau, decision making has moved into the office of the PM until we have in Ottawa what we have now...a dictator.

Time to drop kick both the Lieberals and the Con/Crapers/Reform. These two parties have tag teamed Canada for 148 years. Enough already!
These guys started it so lets get on board and end it.
Have a look.
