Canada’s inaction at the UN climate talks

While it may be tpo late to achieve the 2012 Kyoto targets, there is no excuse for the fact that Canada continues to demand a “flexible” (read: infective intensity based targets) emission reduction plan.

To make matters wore Harper used this meeting to announce his government’s plan to join the meaningless and deceptive Asia-pacific climate agreement.

Hours after urging all countries to cut greenhouse-gas emissions by 50 per cent in any successor to Kyoto, Mr. Harper told reporters Canada would become the seventh member of the Asia-Pacific Partnership, a group nicknamed the anti-Kyoto partnership by some environmentalists.

Seeking to portray Canada as a bridge-builder on the climate change file, Mr. Harper said he wants to be involved in the partnership so he can coax its members into joining a new deal under the United Nations when Kyoto expires in 2012.

How can Canada be a bridge builder when we have no climate change credibility?
