Fight Climate Change Like We Fight Terror!, ya right!

As I have heard many times, on the topic of global warming the Bush administration wants 100% certainty that action is needed. However, the “claim” that Iraq had “weapons of mass destruction” required 0% certainty to solicit immediate and swift action.

Does this new position on global warming mean that the Bush administration is going to take immediate real action to reduce man made greenhouse gas emissions?

Don’t count on it!

What they really mean is that, lucrative government contracts will continue to be doled out to friends and supporters to find ways to “become” more eco-friendly.
Big industry will continue to receive huge grants and tax breaks if they claim to be working on environmentally friendly technology.
Main stream energy research will continue to chase the “hydrogen economy dream”.
We'll continue to spew ever increasing amounts of man made CO2 into the atmosphere, and best of all the Bush administration will happily continue to dither along, promoting an all out war against “climate change”, when in fact the actual war is against those who are working to protect the environment.

It looks as though the Bush administration is already fighting “climate change” the same way they are fighting terrorism.

Welcome to the APP Canada. UGHH!

Well it looks like Harper has done it again. On Monday at the emergency U.N. meeting. Instead of helping promote Kyoto, our wonderful prime minister has announced that Canada will join the Asia Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate, a.k.a. (APP).
Maybe selling huge amounts of oil and coal to the Chinese while implementing voluntary intensity based emission cuts is what Harper had in mind when he said "Canada would pursue a “flexible” approach to global warming that allows for continued economic growth."

It's another sad day for Canadians.

APEC, just another secret meeting.

With the recent conclusion of the APEC meeting in Australia comes another round of "we care about the environment" lip service. The only news to come out of the APEC meeting was that the political leaders would work towards their aspirational goal.

While Kyoto has hard, legally binding targets that must be met by participating countries, such as Canada. The conclusion of the APEC group was that aspirational targets were more reasonable and easier to implement.

I'm sure they are. I aspire to be a published writer, some day. Until I make a commitment, it will not happen.

The real reason for the meeting was to strengthen North American and Asian business ties. No mention was made of the secret group of uranium mining and consuming countries. The countries, Canada, Australia and the United States have formed a group of controlling interests that mine, sell and consume uranium. This group will be able to control who gets uranium and just how much they will pay for it. These three countries control the majority of uranium produced and consumed in the world.

By the way, Canada is a member of the APEC group and a signatory of the Kyoto agreement.

No conflict of interest here!
