Stephen Harper to Use "Sleight of Hand" to Sell Climate Plan

(originally posted at

I just wanted to take a moment to bring to your attention an excellent post from the Globe & Mail’s Andrew Steele, regarding how Stephen Harper will be positioning the Conservatives on the issue of combatting climate change in the near future. For Harper, clearly it’s going to be about obfuscation: tell the public one thing about the Cons' climate change plan, and hoping that by repeating the message, the Canadian public will ignore the reality.

The reality being, of course, that the Plan is (c)crap. And not even on the same level as the inadequate plan being put together south of the border.

Let’s not be suckered into thinking that the Cons will do much in the way of what’s needed to address the climate change crisis.

There doesn't seem to be much chance that either the Cons or the Liberals will do much about fighting climate change, let alone make it an election issue. After all, they both support the development of the Tar Sands.

Global warming/chaos is a given. Post-Peak Oil societal collapse is a given. Ecological degradation is a given.

The GPC "fights" a rear-guard and redundant action. Although the packaging is decidedly different, the deception of the public differs not in the least from that of Libs/Cons.

It is a bitter pill to have to swallow.

This is nice for decreasing global warming, only this is the way by which we can control the global temperature
