Ambrose The Honest...

She might as well be called so for what she's managed to do at the latest UN climate change convention:
"Kyoto requires its members to cut emissions by five per cent below 1990 levels by 2012. However, some members, including Canada, have said the target is unrealistic and can't be met. Canada's Environment Minister Rona Ambrose, who is attending the talks, says Canada is 35 per cent above its Kyoto targets due to years of Liberal inaction."
This is one of the rarest bursts of honesty I've seen in this whole Kyoto fiasco. Everyone seems to talk and talk and talk and talk.... Years go by. And then some more talk...

No one actually has made a mention of what the progress we've made so far with Kyoto has been.

Canada was a Kyoto-happy for years. It was the darling of enviro-nutsos everywhere for it. "How dare anyone suggest that Kyoto was unrealistic!" it's opponents were told.

So much for realism. For all there Kyoto-happiness, the Liberals managed to prove Kyoto opponents right: emissions are up despite the "Kyoto plan." Not that it was a "real" plan anyways...

  1. Perhaps the Kyoto targets are "unrealistic". Perhaps it is somehow due to the Liberals, although I tend not to believe in the governance of nations through the blaming of former leadership.

    People seem to look at Kyoto through the eyes that it is unchangeable or unmodifiable. It seems to me that if the best intentions of Kyoto are indeed worthy, then we should make an attempt to at least try, and fail, to meet our obligations. Every bit should help, provided other nations do the same.

    It's one thing to say that we will not meet our targets. It is quite another to ignore a noble cause altogether.

    Who are the others included in the "some members" statement?

    Environment - Noble Cause
    Kyoto - Crap

    There is a difference.
