Thanks to our esteemed Mr. Harper, Canada has dropped further down the rankings in the Climate Change Performance Index 2008 (pdf).
In 2007 we were an embarrassing 51st position. This year we are 53rd. Harper and his lying friend Baird can pretend all they want that “they are taking action on climate change” but no one is listening. As all conservatives seem to do, they are just trying to stall as long as possible to take action on climate change. The problem is their economic arguments are completely incorrect; this will cost more to fix the longer they wait. I think they have just become so ideologically opposed to the “green movement” of the 80′s and 90′s that they can’t see the truth in front of them now.
I really, really, hope this is the issue that unseats Harper in the next election. I will definitely work towards that goal because their contempt and lies are so infuriating and destructive.
