The 'Greening' of Stephen Harper - yeah right

Does anybody out there really believe that ubber free enterpriser Stephen Harper has actually had an environmental awakening or is this simply a reading of the polls by a nervous PM who wants to keep his job.

In view of earlier comments made by the PM (ie. "so called green house gases") there is no doubt that these guys are as phony as a 3 dollar bill.

Bruce Johnson has a good article in today's Regina Leader Post where he asks some hard questions of the Harper regime:

"The Tories are going to need more than Baird's pit-bull-in-a-china-shop approach to convince Canadians that the Harper government is serious about the environment, specifically climate change and Kyoto.

The Tories have done much to undermine their position as effective environmental stewards since taking office a year ago.

They've cut the EnerGuide for Houses program to save a measly $45 million a year, withheld $20 million in federal funding for clean-coal and polygeneration research projects in Saskatchewan and thumbed their noses at Canada's Kyoto commitments."

he's basically resorted to regurgitating programs they cut when they got into office and announcing small spending initiatives with no specifics and with the funds being spread extremely thin over long time periods.

they aren't really solutions... they a PR response to polling data.

It is with the amusement that I have noticed this "Green awakening" of Stephen Harper. You have to give it to him, he is sly politician who obviously is fully aware of the old adage by the late German propaganda minister Joseph Gobbels; "A lie repeated over and over again becomes the truth". Somebody, I don't recall who, also said; "A lie has to be big enough to be believable". On both, Harper scores very well.
