He had a few interesting points, but mainly he talked about Canada's non-efforts in regards to Kyoto, and about greenifying the economy - making sustainable efforts that can be bought and sold. His background is striclty political-science...so our environmental scientists were grilling him. <br> Since he's been appointed by the PM only a couple of days ago, we'll see how he does....<br> ....if only they would put someone in charge who has a working knowledge of the environment.<br><br> First assignments are precedence or "architecture in reverse" and a materials study to warm us up.<br><br><br></p>
