    Published: 2009
    Here I am, watching the astonishing spectacle of a beautiful, cultured nation turning itself into a corrupt petro-state.

Until now I believed that the nation that has done most to sabotage a new climate change agreement was the United States. I was wrong. The real villain is Canada.
