More Greenhouse Gas

Well, our Prime Minister has decided to shuffle his cabinet.
His choice for Environment Minister is John Baird.
This is a person who exudes disdain for the environment. He is the political version of a tough guy defence man on a hockey team. He is aggressive and partisan and is constantly on the attack: an attack dog.
This shows that the Harper government is no more committed to environmental action than it was under the window dressing tenure of Rona Ambrose in this ministerial position.
By putting Mr Baird in this position, Mr Harper is signaling that his response to some serious concerns about his environmental policy is a strategy where "the best defence is a good offence."

We can (unfortunately) expect more of the same from this government.
