Pipeline deal is dangerous

It was always clear that the initial tough stance Christy Clark took with her “five conditions” was simply a get-elected ruse.

Re: Premiers find common pipeline ground, Nov. 7.

Apparently Christy Clark and Alison Redford have patched up their faux uneasy relationship.

It was always clear that the initial tough stance Clark took with her “five conditions” was simply a get-elected ruse for we B.C. lemming voters and that deals for pipelines, tar sands bitumen, liquefied natural gas and fracking would be resurfacing as soon as it was politically prudent.

Meanwhile, the World Meteorological Organization reports greenhouse gases have upset the natural balance of our atmosphere, spelling “devastating consequences for the future of the planet.”

Similarly, the New York Times reports that the next instalment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s report on global warming and climate change is both alarming and devastating.

Canada is now the premier global pariah regarding environmental and climate sustainability. Clark and Redford are fighting it out as to who will be the gold medal flag bearer that will lead us over the cliff for a few shekels of gold. Prime Minister Stephen Harper is cheering them on.
