Baird demonstrates a willingness to listen. Then plugs his ears.

Well, this isn't surprizing.
Environment Minister John Baird says the Conservative government won't dismiss a newly passed law requiring Canada to respect its emissions-cutting commitments under the Kyoto Protocol.

But he says he's not putting forward a new environment plan either. Baird says the time for studying and developing new plans is over, and that the government is already moving on a "realistic" plan to tackle climate change.

Studying and developing?!

He says the government will follow through with the "technical letter" of the bill, but won't waste another six months studying the issue and commissioning more reports.
Six months? Is he trying to tell us the Conservative plan took six months? What happened? Did the package they opened at cabinet come without a green crayon?

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has said his government's climate plan will curb greenhouse gases by 20 per cent by 2020, although three studies have debunked the plan since Baird released it in April.
But if Steve says it's so, then it must be so... right?

That's what I thought
