The Conservatives are continuing in their Orwellian campaign of rewriting history and removing all mentions of Kyoto and global warming from federal websites.
The latest victim is the federal climate change website itself, which has been offline since August 16th. In all likelihood, the website will be up and running with lights blazing in September - completely rewritten and in full endorsement of the Harpers so called "Made in Canada" plan to tackle Kyoto, set to be released after Labour Day.
Unfortunately, Harpers plan stands to do nothing to tackle climate change. Instead, it will attempt to spin the issue into one of smog and air quality, and paint the Conservatives as environmental heroes while largely ignoring Canada's Kyoto commitments for C02 reduction.
In layman's terms, Harpers "Made in Canada" solution to addressing Kyoto commitments will be to do nothing to meet them.
As with past initiatives, he will attempt to hijack the issue to further his party's own interest. Much like the Conservative's "daycare plan" that largely benefits wealthy couples over poverty stricken single parents, their "environment plan" is sure to benefit polluting energy industries at the expense of the Earth's climate.
Something to remember during his next string of promises at election time.
