An academic from a Washington-based think tank is furious that Environment Minister Rona Ambrose used recent remarks by her to attack the Kyoto protocol on climate change. Daphne Wysham, a fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies, said Ambrose is using her think tank’s criticism of the Clean Development Mechanism to abandon Canada’s responsibility to live up to its commitment under the international agreement. ”I’m horrified by that,” Wysham said in a phone interview. “I certainly don’t want to see Canada pulling out, did not want to the U.S. pulling out. We want to see Kyoto strengthened.” (See Attachment for full story)
