Poll - Harper on climate change

A mildly satisfying poll result so far.
Only 30% have their heads solidly up where the sun don't shine.

Are you for real? Nice representative poll. I guess desperate times...

Uh huh, 'for real'. That's sort of why I used the words "mildly" and "so far".

But things are looking even better now. The poll sample has doubled and only 26% have their heads solidly up ....

I'm guessing those 30% either vote: Green, NDP and represent the far left of the LPC. I'm also guessing that they want world socialism too with their environmentalism. (real conservative)

Prime Minister Harper and John Baird disgraced and mortified all Canadians, and especially authentic small-c fiscal conservatives, in Bali yesterday by caving into the socialists advocates who insist on annihilating their countries’ economies simply to satisfy the extreme left-wing, fear mongers who are frantically whining about “so-called man-made” climate change.
By embracing unrealistic and unapproachable targets of 25 to 40 per cent for gas emissions comrades Harper and Baird have contracted to diminish Canadian’s standard of living to the extent that our imminent standard of living will more closely duplicate Cuba’s than that of a country belong to the industrial first world.
While socialists Harper and Baird were very willing to at least partially devastate Canada’s future manufacturing capability, they decline to insist that countries, which produce more greenhouse gas emissions than Canada, such as India and China need not obligate to rigorous, economy destroying regulations and caps. Why should China be allowed to continue putting one high polluting, old-age technological coal-fired hydro-electric plant on line per week while future Canadians freeze in the dark, with much less manufacturing capability to produce wealth, and thus a higher standard of living?
What do Mr. Baird and our left-wing Prime Minister have against Canadians that he prefers to comply with and appease the Indians and communists, human rights abusing Chinese at our expense? Why must future Canadians live in poverty so that the Prime Ministers friends in quasi-democratic India and Marxists China can have a future with superior standards of living than us? Why dose our left wing Prime Minister and the socialists leaders of all opposition parties want to obliterate our economic growth capability?
Legitimate small-c conservatives are demanding the resignation of Harper and Baird; they obviously will be happier in the NDP with the rest of the Marxists Morons.

Anon 6:21AM, I agree, it does look like Baird and Harper are caving on important positions. One wishes they could grow bigger balls. But at the same time I have to cut them a little slack given the reality of politics on the ground. In this case we can always hope they're taking a page from the Liberal playbook - all talk and no action.

Jeff, We're all for a clean environment. But wrecking our economy trying to be a goody-two-shoes to the world will have zero effect on climate and do nothing positive for our environment. You should stop wasting your time trolling conservative blogs and get on with picking up roadside trash.
