Kyoto: Where do you stand on it?

As you all know, our current government in power is in favour of Kyoto but the second most powerful party is threatening to call an election if Kyoto is forwarded into action even more. It would be another spring election, almost 1 year from the last.

Are you in favour of Kyoto?

An election would cost our government about $250 million. That's enough to buy 600 humvees, enough to replace our military, and 27 hospital MRI's. After that, we still have $25 million leftover - perhaps, get another governor general of the same nature and attitude? :cheers:

I am behind Kyoto but am not entirely confident in the governments plan to meet the objectives.
^I have, in another thread of which I can't remember the name I told everybody how we reduced our electricity consumption by 35% just by replacing lightbulbs, reducing leakage of electric devices like phone chargers, lowering the thermostat, buying low power usage appliences, installing motors in fans that are part of the furnace and water heater.

We also decreased our usage of natural gas by getting rid of the old furnace and getting a new one as well as replacing the old school hot water heater with an "on demand" system that heats water up as you need it.

Of all the people in my household, none commute to work by car. Two including myself take the TTC, one walks and the other Tele-Commutes.

It is not the average person that needs to be reined in by the Gov't, its big companies and coal fire generating stations like Nanicoke.
