Canada’s bloody-minded determination to ignore climate change – reaffirmed yesterday in the Conservative’s intentionally frightening accounting of the potential costs of the Kyoto accord – will leave Canadians standing against a rising tide with no plan and no boat.

There is no question that the world will soon turn to clean energy. No matter what petroleum industry people want – no matter what they say – the change is coming faster than they think and a lot faster than they want. Whoever provides the key to that clean energy will be the new Saudi Arabia – the new Alberta.

If you want to secure your children’s future, that future belongs to clean energy.
