A Sense Of Pride

Canada is already making an impression today in Bali, picking up the cherished "Fossil Of The Day" award from the Climate Action Network. Australia may have won applause today, but did they pick-up one of these babies:



And remember, this is only day one, there could be plenty more prestigious accolades moving forward, if Canada plays its cards right. Is this "leading the world" or what?

I think the Cons now have more wilson, if you include the four Ambrose snagged in Nairobi. They have done more than the Liberals, and it only took two years, not thirteen.

Whatever happened to Rona Ambrose anyway? She should do a comeback special.

You can always count on Wilson like clockwork to try and excuse the pitiful Cons effort on the environment or whatever they're being attacked on with the "they did it too!" excuse.

Apparently being in government for 18+ months still gives you license to blame the prior government. I keep telling her that the Harper constituency office needs to get her more updated attack material.

Come on Scott, Cons inherited an enviro file that started 33% in the hole.
How is it PMSH should be able to fix in 18 months what Dion couldn't fix in 18 months...hmmmmm
Which one is in denial?

And now the UK is taking an ALL-in position in Bali too:
'..Both nations will have to make concessions in a new deal, says U.K. Environment Minister Phil Woolas, a Bali participant.
``We need the world's biggest economy, the U.S., on board,'' Woolas says.
``A new climate deal must include fair, effective contributions from developing economies such as China.'

Reminder, Dion was enviro Minister for 18 months....oops, no legislation from his time in office, and I do believe he proposed intensity targets in at least one of his 8 enviro plans.

Speaking of denial, Wilson could you provide one independent source, domestic or foreign, that supports the Harper/Baird approach to climate change.
