@ec_minister Re-ratify Kyoto - it's easy, it's fun AND you can help save the planet.#EarthToParis
@JustinTrudeau Canada can make new pledges: Re-ratify Kyoto. Commit $500 M for climate action in developing world. Set aggressive targets.
Set new targets now for Canada:
@JustinTrudeau Canada MUST throw out the old, weak targets that actually entrench runaway global warming. #C0P21 #CanadaIsBack
@ec_minister Canadians don't want more fossil awards-so why take the current Harper ‘commitments’ to #C0P21!? #CanadaIsBack
@ec_minister NEW targets are needed before #C0P21 so scientists can see if global temp. change can be kept <1.5 C Show #CanadaIsBack !
@JustinTrudeau Commitments after #C0P21 are a USELESS COPOUT. 'Scuse pun :) Act now to save the planet! #EarthToParis
@JustinTrudeau Canada is 1 of 10 largest GHG emitters in the world and the 2nd-highest level per capita in the world. We must change this!
@ec_minister We need new targets now to bring to the table. Show #CanadaIsBack
@ec_minister Canada needs to show that our new govt will fight climate change. Going to #CoP w current targets says we still don’t get it.
Show climate leadership at CoP21:
@JustinTrudeau Show #CanadaIsBack with real leadership at #COP21 #EarthToParis
@ec_minister Canada MUST do whatever it can to come away with a real treaty. Accept the most aggressive, strongest options in #CoP21 negotiations. #EarthToParis
@JustinTrudeau Just say no to #tarsands Be a climate hero at #C0P21
@JustinTrudeau Canada must 'Show greater levels of ambition'. Be a superhero not an also-ran.
Real climate leadership from @JustinTrudeau at this #CoP21 will make history in a huge way.
Moral imperative to act aggressively is coming from leaders of all major religions -Jewish, Muslim, Christians. It’s NOT the time to be timid. #COP21 #EarthToParis
Pope Francis and Bishop Tutu are creating a climate of change. Now is NOT the time to be timid. #COP21 #EarthToParis
