Tories' green plan a fraud: Gore

The Conservatives’ new environmental platform is a “complete and total fraud” that is “designed to mislead the Canadian people,” former U.S. vice-president Al Gore said today.

The noted environmentalist was presenting his documentary “An Inconvenient Truth” in Toronto at a consumer environmental show, with Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty and environmentalist David Suzuki in attendance.

Gore praised Suzuki for confronting Environment Minister John Baird on Friday, saying he saw the two exchange words on TV.

When Baird told Suzuki the Conservatives were going further than any other government in Canadian history, Suzuki said it wasn’t enough.
Gore is the fraud along with his sidekick Suzuki

I’ve never been a big cheerleader for the Conservatives but the Liberals are so far off base it is sickening, Gore is making a fortune from carbon trades, Maurice Strong is on the board of directors for the Suzuki foundation. The Ont. Liberals are fools taken in by big business trying to win the vote by trying to look green. The coal plants in Ont. are still spewing health  harming emissions. CO2 is not one of them. We are living  with chicken little just like Iraq. Kill the spin and demand the truth.

    Al Gore has no right to criticize Canadian policies…See my blog!

    This is not about Canadian policy, this is about the environment. If we all thought like that, then China and India would never be asked to step up and reduce their emissions because it is their business alone? When the ice caps melt or we get hit by droughts, it will be everybody’s business. If Canada doesn’t do enough, how can we expect developing countries to do anything at all?
    In my opinion, Al Gore is no saint, but he understands what Canadians want regarding the environment better than our dumb politicians.

    I agree with you! Climate change is a global issue! However, Mr. Gore didn’t do anything to apply the Kyoto Protocol while he was vice-president. I just think that his own background doesn’t give him the right to complain about the Tories’ Green Plan. Feel free to put a comment on my blog if you think I’m wrong!

    Believe me, I have never been a fan of the conservatives but they seem to have the most realistic point of view.

    Clean up the environment, yes. But don’t focus completely on global warming because the facts simply aren’t there to justify ruining our economy and spending billions on silly, inefficient placebos like wind and solar farms.

    MT – Would you kindly explain how carbon-trading is going to help the environment? There is a huge opportunity for corruption and misuse of this scheme. It’s the meat and potatoes that needs to be addressed. Preaching from a morally superior green fog is simply irresponsible and unrealistic.
