Canada Pulls Out Of Carbon-Based Life Form Alliance


Environment Minister blames the ABC*:

"Canada is formally withdrawing from the Kyoto accord, Environment Minister Peter Kent said Monday.

The decision to do so will save the government an estimated $14 billion in penalties, Kent said. The Conservative government says it has no choice given the economic situation.

Blaming an "incompetent Liberal government" who signed the accord and then took little action to make the necessary greenhouse gas emission cuts, Kent said he was formalizing what the Conservative government has been saying for weeks.

"Kyoto for Canada is in the past. As such, we are invoking our legal right to formally withdraw," Kent said.

The Kyoto Protocol, which expires next year, committed major industrial economies to reducing their annual CO2 emissions to below 1990 levels, while providing financial supports to developing nations to encourage them to follow suit eventually. Canada ratified the accord in 1997 but was not on track to meet its legally binding targets..."

* ABC = The Anti-Breathing Conspiracy
Meanwhile, in what is becoming a pattern, the 'flying deflector monkeys for truthiness' who were up in the air, flying in formation, and all ready to go so that they could immediately commence the flinging their obfuscatory pooh all over the Interwebz.....Case in point, just check out the comments attached to the CBC post linked-to above, for example.

Indeed rigged comments...

The Harper PAB have been very busy today.

Harper`s Canada is a disgrace.

And by the way...What is this fine bullshit..

Not one country anywhere has paid any fines.

I believe they threw in that $14 billion dollar figure as a lame excuse.

I call bullshit!
