The 22 Days of Harper’s Anti-Environment/Anti-Kyoto Quotes – Day 22!

Yes.. its Day 22 of our epic 22 Days of Harper’s Anti-Environment/Anti-Kyoto Quotes, and its been a blast to do these. On this special day, I give you my readers a special gift.. a BONUS 2nd quote! (meaning I really had 23 days worth of material, but miscounted):

Your first quote: “Carbon dioxide does not cause or contribute to smog, and the Kyoto treaty would do nothing to reduce or prevent smog.” (Stephen Harper, Toronto Star, June 10, 2004).

No kidding. Kyoto wasnt designed to go after smog, as we’ve already stated here.

And your BONUS 2nd quote: “Redirect federal spending aimed at fulfilling the terms of the increasingly irrelevant Kyoto Protocol.” (Stephen Harper, Ottawa Citizen, June 8, 2005)

(which has been passed into law by 140 countries – thats more then the “Coalition of the Willing” got in the war against Iraq).

And there you have it: 22 days and 23 quotes showing how little Harper thinks of Kyoto and the Environment, and his recent conversion hasn’t fooled anyone – particularly when he’s laying out intensity targets for his “Green Plan” that could increase GHG by up to 248% by some environmental groups count. Real great plan Stevie.

Thanks to Jeff Jedras (A BC’er In Toronto) for sending this list to me, and for the inspiration behind the idea 🙂
