    Well, only Saudi Arabia has more oil than we do.

    I don’t agree with my government’s position on this, though, and there’s been quite a lot of protests (including people climbing the Parliament building and hanging a pro-climate-action banner off them) against their refusal to act. But our PM is from Alberta, which views the oil sands as the foundation of its prosperity (as well as providing jobs for about half of employed Newfoundlanders), and he’s not going to do anything to endanger that. Which is probably a bad call given that a fairly plausible result of climate change would be another prairie dust bowl.Report
