Go Canada!!

As the next climate scam conference approaches, we have this from our environment minister:

Kent says developing countries need climate deal
"Environment Minister Peter Kent says emerging economies must sign on to a global deal to cut emissions, and says Canada will play hardball with developing countries to get an agreement during climate talks that get underway in South Africa on Monday.

Kent told The Canadian Press ahead of the conference that developing countries in particular should not be allowed to use the emissions records of wealthy nations as an excuse not to agree to lofty emissions-reduction targets.

He also said that all nations must be prepared to demonstrate their progress on whatever emissions targets are contained in any new deal.

According to Kent, Canada will not sign on to any deal that builds on the Kyoto Protocol, which is set to expire next year, because it excludes major emitters among developing nations, including China, India and Brazil.

"There is a recognition that Kyoto isn't fair, and it's certainly not effective," he said.

Domestically, Kent says, "from Canada's point of view, Kyoto was the biggest mistake the previous Liberal government made," because a plan wasn't devised for Canada to live up to its commitments.

Delegates from 190 countries will attend the climate talks in Durban, South Africa, which are expected to carry on for two weeks."
It's about time somebody called their bluff. Now, if we could just get our politicians to call the environmental lobby's bluff.
