A reminder for Mr. Harper

Something different this morning...a well done, creative little video that was circulating on twitter last night. The accompanying description:
In December 2009 there will be a UN Global Summit on Climate Change in Copenhagen where our world leaders will make decisions on the fate of our planet, and the future of children. Please take action on climate change help us remind Canada's leader, Stephen Harper who he's representing in Copenhagen.
Update: Some interesting reading on this topic this morning in John Ibbitson's column which considers a new study on the projected costs for Canada of both proposed government and environmentalist emission reduction targets. There are projections there on how the environmental goals will impact future GDP numbers and job growth.

The participants in the study are reputable and it's likely to be influential in coming debates. Worth digesting, the whole thing is here.
