"Obstacle #1 [in Copenhagen] is Canada"
World renowned journalist and columnist for the Guardian George Monbiot has declared that Canada is the major obstacle to achieving a global climate treaty in Copenhagen.
Monbiot, who has not traveled on an airplane in two years, said that it was necessary to be in Canada in the lead up to Copenhagen negotiations
"So many people have pressed me come to Canada, to help to kick up a fuss on why the government isn't doing anything at all to advance the process, but everything in their power to obstruct the process," he said in a video interview available on YouTube.
Monbiot has also published a piece in today's edition of the Globe and Mail titled "Please Canada, clean up your act". He will also be speaking at the Munk Debates tomorrow.To watch the YouTube video, see below. (Thanks to Adam Scott and Laura Tozer for the footage)
