. . . you would have noted that the Globe is no longer sitting on the fence.
Today’s Globe editorial describes the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fifth Assessment report “as a jolt of reality.” The editorial recommends that Ottawa “re-think its current do-next-to-nothing policy on emissions.” And adds: “On carbon emissions, Canada’s efforts rank as an epic fail.”
An “epic fail” is hardly complimentary. Still, the editorial could have stated that Canada ranks dead-last in its peer group, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. This fact would have brought home just how poorly Canada has been performing.
