Posted on 12/12/2011 3:18:44 PM PST by tcrlaf
Canada will pull out of the Kyoto protocol on climate change, Environment Minister Peter Kent said on Monday, dealing a symbolic blow to the troubled global treaty.
Canada will become the first country to formally withdraw from Kyoto, which it says is badly flawed because it does not cover all major emitters of greenhouse gasses, notably the United States and China.
As weve said, Kyoto for Canada is in the past We are invoking our legal right to formally withdraw from Kyoto, Kent told reporters after returning from talks in Durban, South Africa, on extending the protocol.
He gave no details on when exactly Ottawa would pull out, but said Canada would be subject to enormous financial penalties under the terms of the treaty unless it withdrew.
The announcement will do little to help Canadas growing reputation as an international renegade on the climate. Green groups awarded the country their Fossil of the Year award for its performance in Durban.

From the article:
“Environmentalists quickly blasted Kent for his comments.
Mr. Kent does not understand what he is sentencing our children to. Catastrophic climate change will cost them far more, said John Bennett, executive director of the Sierra Club Canada.”
HOW HORRIBLE! Kent is sentencing Canadian children to the hell of PROSPERITY!!!
Both Canada and the US have their share of moonbats, the difference is, here the moonbats are in power.
GOOD FOR THE CANUCKS!
GOOD FOR THE CANUCKS!
And the Canadiens, Maple Leafs, Oilers, Flames and Jets, and Senators.
CBC heads exploding, tonight at 10:00 - tune in!
(the good news just keeps coming - thanks for the dose of common sense, Stephen Harper)
Maybe it'll get even better - Hansen's head could explode over the news.
This is America’s fault because...because...because somehow it just has to be!
Well there's the goal for the next Republican Administration. Having the U.S. awarded Fossil of the Year for 2013 and afterwards.
The Religion of Climate Fraud is losing a major G20 Disciple.
Ah ha! Canada secretly hopes that global warming will transform their tundra into a temperate zone.
/ conspiracy nut
Doesn’t sound like he’s denying the ‘science’ at all. Sounds more like he wants the US and China to pay more of a share for this GLOBAL SCAM!
Back many years ago Abraham Lincoln didn’t buy into the global warming fiasco and look what happened to him. Go Canada. I would sing their national anthem if I knew the words.
I’ve been posting for years that “global warming” is a net benefit to Canada. BRING IT ON.
Unfortunately for you guys (and for the AGW fraudsters), the temperature trend seems to be heading the other way.
” . . . now denying “Settled Climate Science!”.”
That is not the reason given, but rather that the U.S.A. and China have refused to demonstrate obeisance to the Carbon Deity, thereby treating Canada unfairly. Boo,hoo!!
Renegade and Canadian. Two words I didn't think I'd see together in the same sentence.
