Making Kyoto Work
The question isn't whether to implement Kyoto, it's how
(Vancouver) Dale Marshall, resource and environmental policy analyst with the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives says there's no reason to stall on Kyoto ratification.
"Ralph Klein and other Kyoto naysayers focus exclusively on the costs of climate change action, but not on the costs of climate change itself," says Marshall. "The economic impacts of ratification will be minimal, in terms of the impact on Canada's GDP. The question here isn't should Canada ratify Kyoto, it's how."
"Clean energy" credits not necessary
(Vancouver) The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) says a federal government discussion paper on the economic costs and benefits of ratifying Kyoto confirms its own findings in a recently released study called Making Kyoto Work: A Transition Strategy for Canadian Energy Workers.

(OTTAWA) The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) has released a new study laying to rest the myth that tens of thousands of jobs will hit the scrap heap if the federal government endorses the Kyoto Protocol.
Canada's largest energy union, the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers, and the David Suzuki Foundation joined the CCPA this morning at a news conference to release the study on climate change.
