Well at least they didn’t pledge to double emissions by 2050

And with this simple 72 word statement:

All the G8 leaders got what they came for.
  • The five European countries get to go home and claim that the G8 committed to cut emissions in half by 2050.

  • The US got to say that they are not locked in if China and India don't participate and that the target is a really worldwide goal, not necessarily for them.
  • And Canada got a "Yo Harper, good job. heh, heh and hey where's the Bear Man, I want him to pull my finger again,"

Living in the basement of my daughter's house, I really try, to not interfere with their parenting, but what the hell, right now he spends as much time with me during the week, than he does with them.

The other day my daughter who came home early and ended up eavesdropping on our conversation about when to fight and when to walk away. Apparently it was one of those days in the school yard.
