Because if they did they would focus more of their attention on China. If global warming were as valid as a theory as they contend then without China we are all doomed. Forget 5% below 1990 levels, we could reduce out emissions to ZERO and it would do NOTHING if China is left unchecked. THAT is why Kyoto is useless.
Current plans call for the opening of a new power station every week, and most of them coal-fired.
Last year alone China added the same amount of generating capacity as there is in the entire United Kingdom.
China's coal reserves are big enough to last 200 years - coal is the dirtiest of the fossil fuels but no other energy source is so readily available.
Liberals are bent on destroying the Canadian economy for nothing. Our token efforts will buy the planet an extra couple of days without China stemming its polution growth.
If liberals really cared about the planet you would think they would spend more time worrying about one of the only countries that can actually do something about it.
This charade has nothing to do with global warming or the health of our planet. It has everything to do with votes. I'm not suggesting that we don't take action - everyone should do their part. But our efforts are futile and EXTREMELY costly. If we are going to impose such a massive cost on Canadians the very least we could do is complain a little more about the real problem - CHINA.
Another surprising thing I learned today is that my dog will eat food that I leave lying around unattended.
Seriously though, the truth is that no one is against the environment. Some people think about it more than others, some know more about, some have more concern. But to say that someone is purposefully against it? I don't buy that. At most, people are negligent in their duty to protect the environment, not really thinking long term.
