Governator gives up Hummers????

Our friends at Ecorazzi are reporting that Cali. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has decided to give up his fleet of GM-built Hummers. However, over at the San Francisco Chronicle, it is being reported as bunk. The story was first reported at and pronounced on the news site and den of climate change denial news, Drudge Report.

Sounds like their is a lot of wishful thinking this Friday afternoon. Hopefully the rumours are true, as it would only make sense given California's recent global warming lawsuit against auto-makers and their recent climate change legislation.

Come on Governor, practice what you preach!

Tim Ball Appearance Notable for Those NOT in Attendance

I am dissapointed to be missing Tim Ball's breakfast meeting with the Victoria Conservative Party this morning, but delighted to be in good company.

 Federal Natural Resources Minister Gary Lunn, whose Saanich-Gulf Island riding is one of those sponsoring Ball's appearance, told Peter O'Neil of the Vancouver Sun yesterday that he had no intention of attending the event, either.

Of Ball's climate change denial - or his periodic comments that climate change would be good for Canada - Lunn said: “Absolutely it does not reflect the views of the (Conservative) party in any way shape or form,” adding “you know, the next speaker will probably be on the other side of the issue.” Right.

Ambrose Makes You Proud to be Canadian - Not!

enviro cab min AmbroseCanadian Environment Minister Rona Ambrose seems to be revelling in her role as the energy industry's inside man in the campaign to destroy the Kyoto accord on climate change.
Critics are condemning Ambrose's most recent stealth attack: she blew off a Kyoto protocol ministers meeting last week - attending by phone regardless that she is the chair - and she announced that Canada had also neglected to meet deadlines to submit new proposals for the next international agreement that would start at the end of the Kyoto agreement in 2012.
