The difference is the Conservatives do not enough but at least don't pretend to be good.

The Liberals did nothing and said they were saving the planet. Again we can not meet 2012 targets but we should catch up to our 2020 targets by 2020 or a few years later.

I agree blaming the last government is not an excuse when dealing with the next 10 years or more.

However from 1997 we had 15 years to do something. 10 of those years (2/3rds) were wasted ( Mainly by Liberals but also by the Conservatives). If Stephane Dion was elected today he could not meet the Kyoto requirements without the largest depression since the 30's.

Eco-Capitalism is the way to go but it takes more than 5 years to get the type of reductions we need.

And just because I argue the Conservative Plan is a step forward doesn't mean that I don't think it goes far enough.

If Elizabeth May introduced this plan I highly doubt it would be dismissed as "misleading".

Oh and if you need more proof Conservatives are not all a bunch of "climate criminals" and that the Liberals are a bunch of saints, which party does Larry "Sprawl" DiIanni come from and which party does Fred Eisenburger (The anti-sprawl mayor) come from?

Exactly.
