Lead­er­ship lack­ing on cli­mate change

Calgary Herald - - OPINION -

Peo­ple smarter than me and our politi­cians have reaf­firmed what we al­ready know — that we are on an im­mi­nent path to de­struc­tion from cli­mate change. If your eyes and ears func­tion you don’t need a sci­en­tist to tell you this.

What is trou­bling is we have provin­cial lead­ers in Saskatchewan, On­tario, Man­i­toba and New Brunswick and Op­po­si­tion lead­ers in Al­berta and Ot­tawa who don’t have a clue.

This is not a new is­sue or a par­ti­san is­sue.

The Con­ser­va­tives have had over 50 years to for­mu­late a vi­able plan so let’s hear what it is and let’s hear from their well-ed­u­cated sci­en­tists within their par­ties.

In Al­berta, it ap­pears they are too busy pos­ing for photo ops on pub night to ad­dress the most im­por­tant is­sue of our time.
