Environment Minister Jim Prentice is playing down the climate-change pledges made Tuesday by Chinese President Hu Jintao at the United Nations, saying Beijing has yet to commit to clear targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
The contradictions are everywhere. Canada doesn't have any plan at the moment, apart from it's intensity based mumbo jumbo, soundly rejected by every single environmental expert. We now wait for Obama to tell us what to do, as a default position to justify INACTION. We have consistently resisted doing exactly what we now ask of China, using China as an excuse to do nothing. Prentice is now biting his own tail, stuck in some ridiculous hypocrisy REVERB.
Canada is essentially asking others to do what we're not prepared to do, and only when they do what we won't do, will we consider doing something. Bzzzz, bzzzz. Countries that propose the exact same arguments that Canada has presented with it's past "leading the world" plan are now offering nothing, even though by arguing that you are NOW saying to the world that we were NEVER offering anything, validating the MOUNDS of criticism directed at you over the years.
Is this shit for real? I mean, seriously, how can this clown go to a mic and not get drowned out by hysterical laughter?
