NO LONGER CHRETIENOUS:


Ottawa considers joining rival to Kyoto Protocol
(BILL CURRY, 4/26/06, Globe and Mail)

The Conservative government is considering joining the Asia-Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate, considered a more lax rival to the Kyoto Protocol.

Environment Minister Rona Ambrose said yesterday that she is taking a close look at the partnership of the six countries -- the United States, India, China, Australia, South Korea and Japan -- that together produce more than half of the world's greenhouse gases.


Not a tough call whether to side with the US, India, and Australia or France and Germany, is it?

[T]he Asia-Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate [is] considered a more lax rival to the Kyoto Protocol.

Except that Kyoto is a feel-good gab-fest that doesn't work, whereas the A-Pac Partnership might actually, you know, do something.

It takes a very twisted and immature mindset to prefer lofty goals and no action over modest targets that actually get met.

You would be amazed how helpful a few well placed bribes can be, but money is getting tight. The war on terror has been so bad for business....
