From today's Toronto Star:
"Environmentalists say greenhouse gas emissions must be reduced by 50 per cent to 80 per cent by 2050 to stop global warming."
Wait: 50 to 80 percent? By 2050?
Where has that been seen before?
Oh, yeah. In the Conservative Party Clean Air Act:
""Every single Liberal leadership candidate who has proposed targets for greenhouse gas emissions had proposed that those targets will be met by 2050. The difference is this ... we are committing today, for the first time ever, to introduce meaningful, tough regulations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 65 per cent by 2050. We'll do far more than the Liberals ever did."
65 percent? That seems right in that 50-80% that the Star's vaunted environmentalists insist is necessary to curb global warming.
But wait: didn't the Star insist that the Clean Air Act was bad? That it was "failing Canadians"?
Apparently, the environmentalists they interviewed for today's op/ed article must not think so.
This has been another "accuracy in reporting" moment.
