BC Goverment to be Carbon Neutral in 2 years

The current government in BC is moving light years ahead of anywhere else in North America in relation to climate change issues.

We have a carbon tax - though there is now a backlash against the tax from the left.

We have a comprehensive climate change plan - though once again, the left seems to dislike it

The government has given $90 000 000 to the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions

And the government itself is preparing to be carbon neutral by 2010 - which means a market for 600 000 to 900 000 tonnes of CO2 offsets, a great kick start to the system of offsets sales here in BC.

What this all means is that Gordon Campbell is clearly the greenest major politician in Canadian history.
