Alberta's lame ass "Green Plan".

We are all to blame for increasing CO2, from CEO’s and Prime Ministers to home makers and even our children.

However, openly telling the largest CO2 emitters in the country that they don't have to worry about reducing their emissions because someone else will do it for them is a slap in the face to every person who has already made changes to reduce their "carbon footprint".

I don’t know about you but I’m feed up with all levels of government telling me that I have to make changes, reductions and sacrifices when they and their corporate buddies are unwilling to do anything.

So here it is.

Just like the governments of the largest CO2 emitters in the world claim.
Until everybody is on board and is doing their part to make meaningful, real reductions in CO2 emissions I will no longer make further sacrifices in my already carbon reduced lifestyle so that some “fat cat” politician or CEO can enjoy a free ride at my expense.

Everybody must make changes if this is going to work. Government, big business, small business and everybody else must do their part to ensure that real, not cap and trade crap, reductions are made without overburdening any one group at the expense of another.

If we can not do this, then there is no hope that any one group will be able to carry the burden alone.

We will have then failed.
