It's like NAFTA - but for the environment!


Wynne encourages Trudeau to pursue North American climate change strategy

Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne is encouraging Prime Minister-designate Justin Trudeau to pursue more climate change agreements with international partners, including a major deal with the U.S. and Mexico.

Speaking to CTV’s Question Period, Wynne was hesitant to tell Trudeau what to do, but pressed for more cross-border climate change agreements.

“I think the more agreements we can get across jurisdictions, the better off we will be. And so my hope would be that he will be in conversation with those North American leaders. That can only support our position in the global discussion,” said Wynne.

The Liberal premier was also hopeful that world leaders will reach a global climate change deal at the United Nations summit in Paris this December. And she’s confident that Trudeau, who has invited the premiers and his fellow federal leaders to join him at the Paris conference, will strengthen Canada’s position in fight against global climate change.

“I think that our voice can be a very strong one, given our geographic size and given the fact that we’re pulling in the same direction now across the country,” said Wynne.

Trudeau has also promised to hold a first ministers' meeting with the premiers within 90 days of the Paris meeting, where they are expected to discuss federal and provincial approaches to climate change. For instance, he has said he will work with the provinces and territories to set a national carbon price.

If one believes that man-made CO2 will change the climate in any significant way, having 1 or 2 nations do somethings at the price of their own prosperity will mean absolutely nothing when other nations do nothing. The other nations economies will grow some at the expense of ours and more CO2 will be put into the atmosphere.

Or course, if CO2 is not a threat all the above is true and we would have hindered our economy for no reason whatsoever.

A North American agreement on the environment would also be fantastic news for the economy.

Not a chance. No sound speculation or prediction is possible without disclosure of TPP details. We'll all have to wait at least four years to even begin to unravel the details. By then it will be far to late to revolt.

aw Come on. No more stupid deals that not only leaves Canuckville looking like an Ozarks dumb hick, but costs us wheelbarrows full of dough.
I do not mind doing things to take care of humanity's home, but "agreements" and "deals" are not the answer.

Good plan. It is far too cold in Canada. Lets see if we can persuade some globull warming to come here so we can have the ice free NWP we were promised by the truthers.

You don't seem to be paying atttention to the oil wars. The price will remain down until Russia give up to the west. That will be the same day hell freezes over. The oil is one of the few things the west can do to cost Russia, so far it's not working very well. A lot less needs to be transported. Aren't you paying attention to the global recession?
