Canada to the World: Global Warming? We're Freezing Our Asses Up Here!
Yeehaw! From Our Cold Dead Hands!
So as expected, the conservatives are u-turning on the Kyoto Protocol. Hardly surprising given the fact that life's not half bad up here in this bountiful dominion.
Who cares the world burns? Them lib pansies and pinkos are all gonna burn Kingdom Come anyway, brother... Amen to that.
But I think the real reason our right honourable Environment Minister Peter Kent was trusted with carrying out this task was to make sure his conversion to the Dark Side was complete.
I mean, Mr Kent -- if anyone doesn't know by now -- used to make documentaries for CBC about the green house effect and its impact on our dear planet, for crying out loud.
According to the blurbs, Mr Kent showed how carbon dioxide levels in the Earth's atmosphere have been steadily rising, and that by the year 2050 the average global temperature could rise by five degrees Celsius.
Oh but never mind that!
You see, if there can be an Orwellian "Progressive Conservative" party in Canada, you can expect pretty much anything, can't you?
Besides, you stupid world-dwellers... As every living Canadian out on the street will tell you under seven layers of clothing: "Of all the places in the world, we could use some global warming, eh!"
The rest of you outsiders can go to burning hell, yeah!
