Supporting ratification of the Kyoto Accord is an act of faith.


Using more energy than other peoples in the Western world, out of necessity arising from our colder climate and the distances we have to travel, being bound by treaty without knowing the impact on our lives is folly for any believing in the adage "Look before you leap".
  • How will the costs of heating our homes and driving our vehicles be affected?

  • What increases in the prices of goods will there be due to higher production and transportation costs?

  • How will our ability to compete with American producers be affected?
  These questions relating to our every day living and the future economic well being of our economy are at present unanswered.




They ought to be before we are all bound by those blindly supporting ratification.
