Stephen Harper: pire ennemi du climat!

Ce n'est pas moi qui le dit! Extrait de l'article:

"The Climate Change Performance Index," published annually by Germanwatch and Climate Action Network Europe, lists Canada among the world's worst at no. 58.

The report assigned scores to different countries based on factors such as emission levels, efficiency, renewable energy and climate policy.

And while the authors say that "no single country is yet on track to prevent dangerous climate change," they are especially tough on Canada, saying it "still shows no intention of moving forward with climate policy and therefore remains the worst performer of all [industrialized] countries."

Only Kazakhstan and Saudi Arabia were ranked worse in the index.

The report is kinder to China, praising "the world's largest CO2 emitter" for slowing emissions growth, investing in renewable energy and holding a high-level debate on coal.

The New Republic noted Canada's position represents a complete reversal from its previous role as a champion of efforts to stop global warming.

The publication even went as far as to label Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his Australian counterpart Tony Abbott the "earth's worst climate villains."
