He's hoping you won't notice or, if you do, that you'll forget by the time we have another election. Stephen Harper and Global Warming, who'd a thunk it? Stephen the Green and it all seemed to happen virtually overnight.
Stevie now gets it, right? He's gone from global warming denier to global warming advocate in about the time it takes him to change his underwear.
He gets it so much that he's bringing back many of the Liberal initiatives he so recently scorned. A big announcement is expected today that will do just that, of course without admitting it. How about something close to a billion dollars for wind power programmes or Liberal initiatives to encourage energy-saving home upgrades?
Whatever you do, just don't call them Liberal. You gotta forget all that. These are Tory initiatives, always were - right? There'll be a lot of tweaking to make it appear distinct from the Liberal programmes, solar and tidal power technology as though these areas would never have been thought of by Stephane Dion.
Hey, when was the last time you heard Stevie puff himself up and bellow "energy superpower"? He seems to have dummied up on that one lately.
By the way, has anyone noticed that CanWest still can't bring itself to use the term "global warming" substituting the Republican alternative "climate change" instead? Hey Asper, don't sugar coat it. It is global warming, accept it, Stevie has.
