Alberta's Red Neck Hydrocarbon Junkie Fundamentalists

This is the time of Copenhagen, an opportunity to begin, at least, the challenge to curb global warming.  But this is no time for baby steps. What I see are our so called "leaders" concerned about making themselves feel good without considering the bigger picture, the long-term marriage with our life support system, and the fact that there is no us and them here, only us.  The appalling and ignorant antics of Canada's Prime Minister, Steven Harper, who defends Alberta’s redneck hydrocarbon junkie fundamentalists, makes him worse than the Taliban, because his toxic narrow  perspective will kill far far more people. Even a simple anteater  knows enough not do destroy the whole ant hill so it can return to feed another time. Mr. Harper, to trade long term security for short-term greed is just plain irresponsible.  The simple fact is that we can no longer cater to thoughtless growth on a finite planet. Has anyone considered, for example, leaving the "tar sands" in the ground for about 300 years or until they could be extracted and used wisely?  I’m embarrassed to be Canadian.  You shame us all. The people are way ahead of the politicians.


It is not about Global Warming
It is about Living Mindfully


"...the majority of politicians, on the evidence available to us, are interested not in truth but in power and in the maintenance of that power.  To maintain that power it is essential that people remain in ignorance, that they live in ignorance of the truth, even the truth of their own lives. What surrounds us therefore is a vast tapestry of lies, upon which we feed."

Harold Pinter, 1930-2008, from his acceptance speech for the 2005 Nobel Prize in Literature.

These are poor people, Mr. Harper, who will pay for your politics
