Kyoto Koncerns

It looks like the Kyoto Accord’s internal contradictions are coming home to roost.

Politicians in Quebec are now loudly complaining about paying to clean up Alberta’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Quebec wants special exemptions under Kyoto because they use hydro dams for power more than fossil fuels and they want Alberta to pick up more of the tab.

Of course, back when Parliament ratified Kyoto, Prime Minister Paul Martin said the plan would treat all provinces fairly.

Easier said than done.

Maybe they should get Rick Mercer to do more One Tonne Challenge ads.
