Since we are now going to see smoke and mirrors by the Cons about Kyoto. I think its time us Liberals offer up a feasible alternative. But also. because I haven't blogged in a while, here is the lyrics to Bad Religion's song Kyoto now.
It's a matter of prescience
No, not the science fiction kind
It's all about ignorance,
and greed, and miracles for the blind
the media parading, disjointed politics
founded on petrochemical plunder
and we're its hostages
If you stand to reason
you're in the game
the rules might be elusive
but our pieces are the same
and you know if one goes down we all go down as well
the balance is precarious as anyone can tell
this world's going to hell
this mythologic hopeful monster to exact its price
We can't do nothing and I think someone else will make it right
You might not think it matters now
But what if you are wrong
You might not think there's any wisdom in a fucked up punk rock song
But the way it is
cannot persist for long
a brutal sun is rising on a sick horizon
It's in the way
we live our lives
exactly like the double-edge of a cold familiar knife
and supremacy weighs heavy on the day
it's never really what you own but what you threw away
and how much did you pay?
In your dreams
You saw a steady state a bounty for eternity
but now the wisdom that sustains us is in full retreat
this mythologic hopeful monster isn't worth the risk
We can't have vision for the future if it can't be fixed
We need a fresh and new religion to run our lives
Hand in hand
the arid torpor of inaction will be our demise
Oh, Kyoto now!
How ironic. Kyoto really is a bad religion.
And if keeping the Kyoto targets was so easy, why didn't the Libs keep them all that time they were in power? Ineptitude?
Save the environment? - Yes. But save the economy too. Canadian jobs and lives depend on it.
Who says religion is a good thing?
