Harper: Kyoto a mistake

Now this is more like it...

KAMPALA, Uganda – Stephen Harper concluded a Commonwealth summit today by bluntly describing the Kyoto accord as a mistake the world must never repeat.

The Prime Minister characterized the landmark climate change deal as a flawed document and served notice that Canada will not support any new international treaty that carries its fatal flaw.

Harper said the key error of Kyoto was slapping binding targets on three-dozen countries but not the rest, including some of the world's biggest polluters like the United States, China and India.
That took some guts, but he's correct. Now, if only some politicians had what it takes to tell the truth about Kyoto and so called greenhouse gases.

On another note, John Howard will be missed.
