after national failure in durban, excellent video of may’s press conference: abandoning kyoto. full of details–if you like that sort of thing–the lawyer in her really comes out http://greenparty.ca/video/2011-12-13/elizabeth-may-press-conference-abandoning-kyoto
as she makes clear near the end, not only was there no debate in the house of commons–and we have NEVER ratified, then abandoned a treaty before [tho i wonder about treaties with the first nations, and what is the status of nunavut?]– we are in danger of breaking international AND national laws.
this is beginning to smell like the kairos affair again, like it’s a personal dislike. like it’s a knee-jerk reaction.
but this time we’ve got the whole world watching
also, our main objection, china, came to the table–now what?
