Meeting Canada's promises on reducing greenhouse gas emissions would cost 275,000 jobs and take the country into a recession, Environment Minister John Baird said Thursday.
funny our being small-fry doesn't count when it comes to considering other international obligations.
Toro that's a good link, it's a little picture of the debate. The debate, environment versus the economy, while I have no doubt that the econ will take a big hit it's not what we need to concentrate on. It's already been determined that under the present economic system kyoto will not work, the foxes will not look after the chickens.
The tipping points been passed we're phucked. Mr Baird would have us believe that we can sustainably operate an econmy without air or water. The problems have been left to the economy far to long, it's no longer a matter of saving our modern western lifestyles but saving the species itself, and that's going to be a long shot, we ain't going nowhere without the bees and the birds.
