Bali, H'ai!


Looks like a number of Earthlings are becoming increasingly perplexed by the fact that Stephen Harper appears to be doing his very best to help us continue to destroy the Earth:

NUSA DUA, Indonesia — Canada is under mounting attack at the Bali climate-change conference, putting it on the defensive as the conference begins its final week of negotiations.

Yvo de Boer, head of the United Nations climate-change agency, said Canada seems to be hypocritical in what it demands from other countries.

"I personally find it interesting to hear Canada just a little while ago indicating it would not meet its commitments under the Kyoto protocol and now calling on developing countries to take binding reduction targets," he told a press conference today at the Bali climate-change conference.

"So I wonder how that's going to be received," he added.

And it's not just the Pols and Diplomatic earthlings that are scratching their heads.

The scientists of the Terra are perplexed as well:

The latest criticism of Canada's position is coming from respected scientists and from fellow negotiators at the conference.

Rajendra Pachauri, head of the climate science panel that was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize today, has blasted the Harper government for its climate stance.

"This particular government has been a government of skeptics," said Mr. Pachauri, chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which shared the Nobel Prize with Al Gore.

"They do not want to do anything on climate change," he added in a published interview in New Delhi.

Now, of course, given the title of this post, some may be wondering if we were to going to drop Mr. Stephen Harper into the Ray Walston role from the movie musical 'South Pacific' which, of course, included the song Bali H'ai.

But we thought better of it when we recalled that Mr. Walston also played an alien in the old TeeVee sitcom 'My Favorite Martian'.

Which, of course, would explain a lot.

The alien part we mean.
