The true face of environmentalism

Sometimes I'm impressed by how brazen the environmental left can be. Just ran into this quotation from the former Canadian Environment Minister Christine Stewart

No matter if the science is phony (sic), there are collateral environmental benefits... Climate change [provides] the greatest chance to bring about justice and equality in the world.


Aside from the cynical implication that government policy should be based on fraud if the ends are "justified", I am also wondering what her vision of justice and equality means? That we in the West start to scrounge for our meals, live at the mercy of nature and start praying in front of stone idols for the next monsoon like our brethren living in other parts of the world?

Frightening...

That is frightening. (Thank God she's a Liberal, at least -- when I first read the post I worried she might have been a Tory!)

This quote reminds me of the "fake but accurate" phrase offered as a defence of the fraudulent CBS memos condemning George W. Bush for his allegedly poor performance in the National Guard...
