Faced with the LOOMING embarrassment on the world stage, Stephen Taylor tries hard to deflect criticism, in the most predictable of ways. The problem is, in his ZEAL, Taylor has pointed to a TELLING reference, which actually highlights just how ABYSMAL, the Conservative record on the environmnent.
I agree, the Liberals did a very poor job on the environment, you'll get no quibble here. Taylor attempts to neuter criticism, by pointing to the Liberal record, using the Fossil Awards, with a neat little graph. Did you know that from 1999-2005, Canada received the 2nd most Fossil Awards, ONE HALF that of the Americans under George Bush? Tsk, tsk, tsk. We stand united Stephen, in our disdain for this dreadful record. What then, does it say about the current Conservative government, that they managed to PULL AHEAD of the Americans, effectively DOUBLING the shoddy legacy of those DIRTY Liberals? The Liberals were a distant second, the Conservatives TOP THE WORLD. Here is a graph, from the last round of climate talks at Bali, under the Conservative government:
Canada leads the world. So, the more people like Taylor HIGHLIGHT the Liberal record, the more they demonstrate just how much WORSE their own. Jean Chretien was a disgrace, but we make him look like Henry David Thoreau, relative to our performance. You guys did absolutlely nothing, but we've somehow managed to do much, much worse (is that physically possible?) You guys were second only to the historical laggard George Bush, but we kicked his ass. Take that.
Shhhhhhh!!!! You're not helping :)
Just take your lumps, they're well deserved.
