Apparently Alberta's environment minister is going to Copenhagen to defend Canada's honour internationally.
This is like throwing water on a gasoline fire. Could it be that Albertans really think that global warming is a hoax, and that environmentalists are idiots? The last thing we need is an Albertan "environment" minister presenting an argument on an international stage, for why we need to continue spewing CO2. I just heard him on CKCO news, and he is going with the argument that the tar sands are only a tiny fraction of the CO2 production in the world. That is not going to help our image one bit.
My advice to Rob Renner. Please stay home and save a few tons of CO2. Your presence is not required, for one thing. Alberta is not even recognized as a nation. And your argument is basically saying "we don't care what you think, we're telling you this is no problem" If you are not bringing any solution, then all you are going to do is make Canada look even more stupid than Harper has done already. The only way you could make the situation worse is if you brought a live baby seal on stage and skinned it alive while the audience watched in horror.
The best you could do if you go there, is keep quiet and just listen to some people.
