Baird: Environment Minister or Economic Minister?
John Baird went on an economic doom and gloom spree discussing Kyoto, and how Canada would be plunged into an economic recession if we attempted to meet our targets. The fact is, oilfield wives who drive their Ram 2500 to the school to pick up their kids at lunch ought to pay $1.60 a litre for gas as far as I'm concerned... Not once however, did he mention what could happen if we DON'T take serious action, and serious action very soon.
And here I thought he was the Environment Minister, but he is really the Economic Minister in disguise.
I believe that eventually our Western economy is going to eat itself up. We are heading for a recession at some point regardless. I simply cannot believe that the future (and near future at that) of our planet and resources is at stake over a doomed almighty buck. But then I am neither an Environment or Economic minister...
