Climate Change and the Kyoto Accord

Climate change and what Canada can and will do to help turn the tide of riding global temperatures. Two major points to address: Canadian have concerns about climate change and they want their governments to do something to be part of the solution; Canadians have the know-how and the resolve to tackle this problem. Working from a common ground. Why Canada is moving forward on a made-in-Canada plan within a United Nations framework, the Kyoto Protocol, and why our government is confident in the ability of Canadians and Canadian businesses to find and use innovative solutions to the global challenge of climate change. Some background details. First steps. How the plan for Canada is aimed at keeping costs down while maximizing the opportunity for Canadian technology. What the government has done. What the analysis says in terms of jobs and costs. How the plan is pro-growth and pro-exports. Action Plan 2000. Examples of how outcomes and attitudes have changed since the 1970s. Brief comments on the science, the waste of money on lobbying, and the price of inaction to our financial community. Moving forward with an essential step.
