She needs to attend the secret meetings of the fascists to plan what freedoms they can remove after the state of emergency is declared. Maybe banning organic food? Or forcing everyone who wants to drive to buy a $100,000 electric car, or catching the workshop on how to word your tax increases so they are for the greater good.

It’s funny because....

“We need to act”. Climate change debate aside, more taxes is not action against climate change. That’s using fear to sway public opinion in favour of more government control. How about real action like reviewing our forest management practices, looking at the laws that restrict electric bikes from becoming inexpensive vehicles that can go 40kk/h with passengers that anyone can build and run for almost nothing, or investing in an electric tram link from the West Shore to town.... you know think global, act local.

An article in the FP by Ross McKitrick quoting one scientist. Pretty far from proving there is no connection.

Here is a report from over 300 experts in the field who reach a different conclusion.

absolutely. Like ensuring fresh drinking water and sanitation, closed pen fish farms, waiving all taxes on bikes, electric bikes etc. encouraging trading in older fuel guzzlers for more fuel efficient vehicles by way of incentives (not just EV's)

 

Mandating at the macro level for a 25% reduction in single use packaging...note I didnt say plastic bags...rising eventually over 10 years to 90%

 

But the elephant in the room is large scale power generation connected to the current grid instead of small scale generation thats going to cost a fortune to connect....ie more hydro and nuclear...its proven. its works and takes up a very small footprint and can be dialed up and down on demand as opposed to windmills and solar.

With Canada on-track to miss its Paris climate targets, Scheer believes that's all the proof he needs to claim that the Liberals' carbon tax is about revenue generation and not reducing Canada's carbon footprint.

 

But Conservatives are banking on the idea that if more people become aware Canada will miss its emissions targets no matter what, it will be easier to argue that a federal carbon tax is an unnecessary burden. “We must continue to deliver the message that Trudeau’s carbon tax is not an environmental or emissions reductions plan. It is only a tax plan. Highlighting how Trudeau will miss Paris is a key proof point,” reads a bullet point under the header “strategic considerations.”

Who would be dumb enough to make that comparison?*  Targets are missed all the time, in all ventures.  How about we compare the tax collected against progress to target to see if we're getting anything for our money?**

 

* Rhetorical, I know.
** Probably fairly dismal.

BC has had a carbon tax for many years now and our consumption of fossil fuels is higher than it has ever been in the history of the province, we own more vehicles per-capita than ever in the history of the Capital Region, and we drive more than we ever did before.

And yet supporters of the carbon tax claim our fuel usage is dropping.

Which is interesting, as congestion rates and the length of trips have steadily risen which has had an effect on fuel economy, and therefore usage.

Well gotta say vehicles are far more efficient than ever and produce far less emissions than ever. Auto-engine shutoff etc

 

But enviros wont acknowledge even that, for them there is no middle ground...Zealot is too tame a description for some of these nutjobs

funny how a head line like this gets no reaction, but a couple of hot days gets a "I SEE YOU TOLD"

 

According to Environment Canada, snow blanketed the Okanagan Connector on Wednesday morning, with flakes continuing to fall between Aspen Grove and Brenda Mines. The low freezing levels combined with an unstable air mass pave the way for “thundersnow” on Highway 97C, said the weather agency.
