OTTAWA--Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has told U.S. President Barack Obama that he's ready to work on joint plan between the two countries to reduce carbon emissions in the energy sector in an effort to secure approval of the Keystone XL pipeline project, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported Friday.
The CBC, citing unnamed sources, said Mr. Harper wrote to Mr. Obama in late August, signaling he is ready to accept carbon-reduction targets proposed by the U.S. and prepared to work with the White House to address concerns raised about Keystone and its impact on greenhouse-gas emissions.
A spokesman for Mr. Harper declined to comment on any correspondence between the Canadian and U.S. leaders. A White House spokesperson declined to confirm Mr. Obama had received Mr. Harper's letter.

If I were Harper, I’d have different words for him. Something to the effect of, “F-k off.”
Hey Harper: NO CAP-AND-TRADE in the USA!
Hey Harper, you can’t trust the man child so don’t bother. Nothing you do will be enough for him.
The environmentalists and their “concerns” can go to hell.
This “carbon emissions” garbage needs to be halted and the instigators need to be put down as you would put down a rabid dog, IMO.
Harper is proposing reciprocity with the U.S. on carbon reduction. He knows that nothing of this nature will get through Congress. So he will never be taken up on his offer. Meanwhile, however, he gets to demonstrate his environmental bona fides to help gain Keystone approval.
Thanks Lonely Bull.
