Canada blocks Commonwealth climate agreement

Stephen Harper is refusing to join in a British Commonwealth agreement to limit production of greenhouse gasses.

Let’s review the choices:

  • Try to reduce or halt global warming, and it’s not happening: low-level economic pain, preserved environment
  • Try to reduce or halt global warming, and it’s happening: low-level economic pain, preserved environment
  • Don’t try to reduce or halt global warming, and it’s not happening: no economic pain, preserved environment
  • Don’t try to reduce or halt global warming, and it’s happening: no initial economic pain, no preserved environment, ecological disaster, huge economic losses, loss of life, etc.

One of those four choices is unacceptable. It’s the one where we do nothing and we’re screwed by the time we’re sure the climate is changing.
