Canada was a global leader in environmental issues - the main broker, for example, of an international ban on ozone-depleting chemicals - up until the 1990s. In recent years, however, the country has fallen from the front ranks to become one of the world's most conspicuous laggards in greenhouse gas reduction and a virtual nonentity in the clean-tech boom. This isn't just bad news for the planet; it's bad business for Canada.In what pinko environmental rag did I find this obviously biased quote? Glad you asked - the quote is from an article called Now, More Than Ever. It was published in the December 2009 issue of that commie magazine Report on Business. Page 62, to be exact.
The article also states:
a whole new industrial economy....has emerged primarily in those places where climate change has been acknowledged not just as a fundamental fact of life and the defining crisis of the 21st century but also as an opportunity. ...the nations and compamies leading this second wave will continue with installations and innovations ....because building this new generation of infrastructure is a smart business move, based upon sound economics.And Canada is pinning its 21st century hopes to the tar sands........this is gonna work out well - I can tell.
