“Canada finds climate sanity“ (May 19, 2011). Anthony Watts seems to think that the recent Canadian election was all about libertarianism and climate policy. Ordinary Canadians want an end to intrusive government climate change regulations! Nope, although environmental issues should definitely have been an issue, they took a backseat to ordinary political wrangling.
The Conservative party had under 40% of the popular vote but in a flawed “first past the post” multi-party system, won a majority of seats. Several “progressive” parties shared 60% of the popular vote. Hardly a consensus, although much like the Republicans in America the Conservatives are enthusiastically implementing a “business-friendly” agenda.
However it has ended global warming forever.
