Almost two years ago, the Campbell administration released its climate change action plan. The public relations fanfare accompanying that release - of which there was none - was appropriate given the content of that plan. So, one wonders whether that document will be updated anytime soon? After all, a recent British government study on the economics of climate change found this phenomenon will result "in the greatest and widest-ranging market failure ever seen" - surely a matter of concern for British Columbia's free enterprise government? Well, we're told that Environment Minister Barry Penner is considering such an update - although no pen has been put to paper at this point.
