Canada the "worst nation by a mile" - The Guardian

Writing in the Guardian yesterday, John Vidal says that Canada is the near-unanimous choice of observers at the lead-up to Copenhagen climate-change talks in Barcelona this past week, as "the worst nation by a mile."

He goes on to say that Canada, already the worst per capita greenhouse gas producer, is expected to propose a miniscule 3% reduction in 1990 emission levels, is home to the dirtiest oil in the world and is sneakily tossing in a sleight of hand proposal to "exploit a loophole which would allow it to reduce emissions compared with what it might emit one day in the future!"

Prime Minister Harper is oblivious to reality...
