The Conservatives may not have met our Kyoto requirements but if this same plan had been implemented in 1997 when Kyoto was signed we'd be on track.

Because of the way Green House gases were measured there is NO time to meet Kyoto with literally just closing anything that pollutes.

How long does it take to build a subway? Replace Coal fired plants? Retrofit every home?

Exactly it can't be done in time.

The difference between the different parties is this:

Liberals: We love the environment but we do jack all

Conservatives: We want votes so we'll make a modest effort but we ain't going to start a depression

NDP: Kyoto isn't even far enough. Its all the fault of the Oil Sands. Lets shut down Alberta and throw hundreds of thousands of people out of work across the country.

Green: We have some good ideas, but our leader endorsed Dion so lets all vote red.

I'd rather take the Dollar Store (Conservative) plan, rather than the Do Nothing (Liberal) or 5th Avenue Shopping Spree (NDP) plans.

If i was leader of the Conservatives, however, I would have a "Kyoto Remediation Plan" to get us to our 2020 Kyoto targets in no later than 2025 and preach about fixing the Kyoto Deficit left by the Liberals.
