We all know how the “Green whackos” think they are “righteous, holier-than-thou, and above any criticism or debate” about what they believe in, talk about or even how they act!
Here’s one thing thats lacking that should be the “yardstick” for any group who devotes so much time and other people’s money to prove their points…….HONOUR!
That one thing is sorely lacking when we hear the “green mantra” being pumped out to all and any to hear and read!
Just ask the British Columbia Auditor General……………he’ll tell you like it is!
Greens who believe that the rules don’t apply to them are now part of government itself.

Here in Canada, we have a watchdog position called the Auditor General. It examines whether public money is being spent wisely, and whether government entities are meeting their obligations.
Last week, an Auditor General released a remarkable report titled An Audit of Carbon Neutral Government. It says that British Columbia (aka BC, our most westerly province) declared its intention back in 2007 to become “carbon neutral by 2010″ – a goal it later announced it had met.
Before explaining why that claim is nonsense, a letter signed personally by Auditor General John Doyle appears on pages 3-4 of this report. The second last paragraph includes remarks that should be ringing alarm bells across the land:
Of all the reports I have issued, never has one been targeted in such an overt manner by vested interests, nor has an audited organization ever broken my confidence, as did the senior managers at [Pacific Carbon Trust] by disclosing confidential information to carbon market developers and brokers. The orchestrated letter-writing campaign from domestic and foreign entities which followed this disclosure demanded considerable staff time, and resulted in the delay of this report. I cannot sufficiently express my surprise and disappointment that a public sector entity, with a fiduciary duty to the people of British Columbia, chose to expend its time and energy in this manner, rather than addressing the concerns raised in the audit – and that they did so with the knowledge of their governing board. [bold added]
These words are important. No less an authority than an Auditor General is telling us that greens think that the rules everyone else is expected to live by don’t apply to them. It is the Auditor General’s job to scrutinize, to shine a light on government failings. Everyone understands this. Except the greens.
