Funding to...

Global warming skeptics this time. Apparently, the Conservative government has been funding an asbestos lobby group which also is skeptical on climate change. Their book, titled "Scared to Death – From BSE to Global Warming: Why Scares Are Costing Us the Earth," tells it all. They believe that global warming and the dangers of asbestos are scams. Now, why don't they tell that to the victims of asbestos. While the Tories are funding this group, they also cut funding on short notice to pro-environmental groups. It is obvious that this government is trying to advance their secret political agenda in secret.
"The government has cut funding to a lead organization that's been doing very constructive work around addressing climate change," said Kathleen Ruff, a senior adviser with the Rideau Insitute and a vocal opponent of the asbestos industry. "And at the same time it's funding an organization that promotes one of the world's leading climate-change deniers."

"I think the world is becoming more and more aware that Canada is a threat to progress on environmental issues."
