Monbiot on the blue-eyed Sheiks

I'll be writing about George Monbiot's scorcher of a column about Canada's shameful abdication of any kind of environmental responsibility soon. As one of a handful of lefty bloggers in Alberta I pretty much have to.

I will say, describing Alberta as a corrupt oil Sheikdom is hardly a groundbreaking observation and should be no cause for shock to anyone who's been following Alberta politics and finance. I called it that back in one of my first blog posts back in 2006 and I've heard lots of folks, including some of the sheiks themselves use the term. Monbiot is just clarifying what it actually means.
