Conservative CO2 Policy: Better than Lip-Service?

It's hard to credibly criticize the bankrupt climate change policy of the Canadian Conservative administration when people insist on drawing comparisons to the Tories' Liberal predecessors.
As the National Post points out today, the bleakness of the Liberal record belies completely the passion of the Liberal rhetoric. It was only after Prime Minister Chretien had deflected and delayed action for almost a decade - only when he began to think of his political legacy - that he suddenly caught the Kyoto spirit. In the meantime, Canada's greenhouse gas emissions had risen unforgivably and Canada's credibility on the world stage was in relative tatters*.

Bravo Evironment Canada

Yesterday, we became aware of an uprising in the scientific community - specifically a complaint about an outrageous bit of misinformation that had been lodged on an Environment Canada Global Warming website.

I appears that the senior bureaucrat/scientist responsible for the site was just as alarmed as we were about this and immediately ripped the information off-line.

Climate change skeptics take the one-two punch

While climate change skeptics continue to bury their collective heads in the sand (oil sand that is), researchers at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Centre are reporting what they describe as “… the strongest evidence of global warming in the Arctic so far.”

The reduction of glaciers in the summer months has been well established in the scientific literature, but this new study finds that a similar reduction is also occuring in the winter.
