Show Notes:

It's official. The Harper government, which has always shown disdain for the Kyoto Protocol, works to make the climate crises worse. At least they are coming clean about something. The U.S. government is officially giving itself the right to arrest and indefinitely detain its citizens, jeopardizing rights enshrined in the Magna Carta, let alone the 6th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. Sadly, as Glen Greenwald points out, this new law will really only make things official that Obama has been pushing to increase his indefinite detainment power for some time now. For a bonus see Greenwald's piece busting the big three myths about the bill.
