The Federal government has released its plan for fighting climate change. It is pretty simple:
1) claim credit for what the provinces do,
2) promise to start soon, after dismantling the actions of the previous government and doing nothing significant since,
3) promise to be 30 times as effective in the next 15 years as the government has been in the last 15 years.
On one hand this is a kind of black comedy. It is a joke, but one so sour that you want to cry. On the other hand it is an attempt to apply the “Big Lie” technique: a lie so “colossal” that no one would believe that someone “could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously”. The only good news is that some commentators are already tearing it to shreds.
