World Wildlfe Fund and Copenhagen

The WWF has a full page ad in Sat's Globe urging parliament to find all party unity on a common Canadian front for the environmental conference in Copenhagen in a year and a half. Nice gesture, but since the PM doesn't believe climate change is real and won't do anything to alienate his party's funding core in the Alberta oiligarcy, such unity will have to exclude the ruling party, which of course represents the minority of Canadians who don't believe in it either. The majority will lose again, but because environmental degradation is real whether Harper and his minority supporters believe in it or not, all Canadians for all time will suffer because of Harper's obstructionism. It's cold comfort to know that 'harpering' will become a verb for doing nothing in the face of an emergency.
