    We prefer the cap and trade option. But I don't see how that can be considered "anti-environmentalism". It's a different route to the same goal. And the debate over both goes on at the federal level.

    •  Having crunched the numbers in BC... (2+ / 0-)

      I encourage the NDP to steal everything it can from the Green Party. There are at least six seats in BC that reliably go to the 44% BC Liberals because the BC NDP get 40% and the BC Greens get 8%.

      That has nothing to do with you, of course. I'm just irritated with out election results.

    •  Cap and trade doesn't target behaviours (0+ / 0-)

      It just says, "Bad bad energy companies, bad!"

      While that tends to make everyone (but energy companies) feel good, and why most of the big business community prefers it, it doesn't get to the heart of the problem - the biggest problem we have on Earth right now.

      Carbon taxes target everyone's bad behaviours, which is why the environmentalist community has come out for it. We are ALL responsible for Global Warming, and it will not be until we all begin to do our part, right down to the consumer, that real accountability will be taken. It begins with changing behaviours.

      I will be unable to vote for a party that competes against a party offering a real solution, unfortunately. That's too bad, because my family ties to the CCF go right back to the beginning.
