Global warming fallacy

In the Cambridge Times, Tim Crawford writes:

Liberals didn't like that, but check this out.

In 1992, there was a United Nations conference on environment and development in Rio de Janeiro (Earth Summit). The conference was convened by Maurice Strong, Canadian business man and special advisor to Paul Martin.

Since Mr. Dion likes quotes so much, perhaps he can explain what Liberal strategist, Mr. Strong, meant when he said at the UN conference, "What if a small group of world leaders were to conclude that the principal risk to the Earth comes from the actions of rich countries? And if the world is to survive, those rich countries would have to sign an agreement reducing their impact on the environment. Will they do it? The group's conclusion is 'no'. They won't change. So, in order to save the planet, the group decides: Isn't the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn't it our responsibility to bring that about? This group of world leaders form a secret society to bring about an economic collapse."

Perhaps Mr. Dion can at least concede to PM Harper and Dr. Tim Ball that there is another legitimate side to this debate, set aside his "Al Gore", American-style politics and focus on real issues like "imminent" terrorist threats and the national security of our country.
