For the second day in a row Canada was given the “fossil” award at the Nairobi conference on climate change. This award is given to the country that has contributed least to the fight against climate change. In a ranking of 56 countries, Canada came 51st when it comes to environmental policies. The enviornment minister, Rona Ambrose, who seems more interested in her hair than in climate change, is expected to receive a frosty reception when she arrives in Nairobi today.
Isn’t it hight time that Canada stepped up to the plate on climate change?
