David Suzuki on Carbon Credits

February 28th, 2007

We all know about the David Suzuki “do as I say, not as I do tour” and the “rock-star-style” diesel-burning tour bus by now. And we know it’s OK because, like Al “I’m already rich, so lets stop economic expansion” Gore, he’s buying carbon credits. And carbon credits are good; we know that because?

The federal government has frequently and publicly declared that Canada
will make the majority of it’s emission reductions through domestic action. This
ensures that the reductions will be real and not just “hot air” purchased

And where does that quote come from? From a document called Keeping Canada in Kyoto” by the David Suzuki Foundation (Sorry I can’t link to the document directly, my computer keeps crashing when I try).

So not only is it OK for Suzuki to use a massive 50 person bus to transport 8 people, while the rest of us Canada’s aging population is supposed to give up comfortable vehicles for efficient ones, but now it’s OK for Suzuki to buy carbon credits, but when the country does so it’s not real reduction, just hot air being bought?

By the way, if you read the document you will find that hating Alberta is not something new to the (ahem) good doctor, it is policy of the David Suzuki foundation. As Licia Corbella notes in todays Sun, the Suzuki Foundation is supposed to be non-partisan, or lose it’s charitable status.
