The 22 Days of Harper’s Anti-Environment/Anti Kyoto quotes – Day 4

Yes, I know you’ve been waiting for it.. its time for another edition of The 22 Days of Harper’s Anti-Environment/Anti Kyoto Quotes.

Man, this Toronto Star interview is rich.. another quote from that interview hilights Day 4 of our series:

“I don’t think we should consider signing on to a deal that
makes us virtually the sole country in the world that is going to take
any action.”
(Stephen Harper, Toronto Star, September 5, 2002)

This of course also turns out to be false.

Many countries are taking action. What Harper has somehow managed to do is make us “virtually the sole country in the world” that signed this treaty and who wants to throw up its hands in the air and enact or do nothing that would at least start us on the road towards meeting longer-term Kyoto targets.

As I’ve said before, if Harper doesn’t like this treaty, withdraw from it and then try to explain to the world and the Canadian public how he turned Canada into an environmental pariah (ok, we’re pretty close now, but that would be the ultimate way of sealing the deal). Run a campaign on it.. I dare you.

Day 5 Harper hijinks and hilarity tomorrow!! 🙂

    If the Liberals were really serious about Kyoto.

    Why is it that emissions went up 35% under their watch when they had 3 majority governments instead of down?

    Why are the Liberals refusing to tell Canadians the cost to the Canadian economy, industries and jobs that will result by implementing Kyoto?

    Why are the Liberals refusing to tell Canadians what emission cap and regulations they will put on the auto sector, oil sands, power plants, etc in order to reduce Canadian emissions by 40% in 5 years to achieve the Kyoto target?
