Although our intellect always longs for clarity and certainty, our nature often finds uncertainty fascinating.

- Karl von Clausewitz

The Cost of Political Correctness

For those who complain about the non-signing of Kyoto, ask yourself if you really want to destroy your economy while the filth of third world polluters are given a pass?

The cost of meeting Canada's Kyoto commitments would be an economic downturn to rival the worst recessions of the past 60 years, spiralling energy costs and the worst unemployment in several generations, John Baird, Minister of the Environment, said yesterday.

Appearing before a Senate committee studying Bill C-288, the Liberal bill that would force the government to comply with Kyoto, Mr. Baird painted an apocalyptic portrait of a country economically hobbled by the wrenching changes Kyoto would require.

The cost of political correctness is always high> Much of the cost is ignorance.
