Don't let climate alarmists muzzle your skepticism

Two things happened in Alberta politics this week that demonstrate just how zealous “green” politicians everywhere are about the theory that human activities are causing dangerous climate change.

Under pressure from voters over the $3-billion-a-year carbon tax that it brought in on Jan. 1, Alberta’s NDP government lashed back.

First, on Tuesday the NDP caucus officially demanded that Wildrose Leader Brian Jean remove MLA Don MacIntyre from his post as opposition critic for renewable energy and electricity.

Why? Had MacIntyre been pilfering funds from taxpayers?

Had he been harassing interns? Making racist statements?

No. MacIntyre’s sin was expressing doubts about the manmade climate change theory.

In short, the NDP wanted MacIntyre removed for exercising his right to free expression.

The sad thing, no one has been able to demonstrably prove that more taxes will reduce emissions by a worthwhile amount. This is just more leftard policy based on "a hope and a prayer" rather than any hard evidence. It also makes no sense to give the largest emitters a free pass like they have in Ontario while the individual gets clobbered some more at the gas station, grocery store, appliances store, clothing store and on their hydro bills.

Since it is a tax on the 40% of Albertans that make over $100,000/yr I have dropped most of my objections. The fact it is based on faulty science seems to have been used by JT to tax the very people it was meant to enrich. (where the rich got credits and the poor couldn't afford to pay a tax so they did without the luxuries only the rich could afford. $200/yr for somebody making less the $50k is something they can 'feel'. That money to the rich is next to nothing.

I just watched an interview with Ontario Finance minister DaSouza an hour ago and he swears that its LAW in Ontario for the carbon tax revenues in Ontario (they call it something different but it is still a carbon tax) to be applied to green energy.Then the dots connected. Ontario has suddenly lowered the electricity rates because, by the Premier's own admission, the rate increases were an unpopular "mistake".
So, how do they make up the revenue shortfall? CARBON TAX! They can apply the revenue directly to electricity $$ and still maintain the "Green Energy" myth. WIN! ... and the Liberals win back their popularity, all the while SAVING THE PLANET at the same time! WYNNE! WYNNE!

Too cynical by a half and it will bite them in the bum, eventually.

It was never about saving the environment or even controlling the climate. It's about $$$.

It's an important topic. Climate, as you know by now changes, your alarm at the revelation will do sweetfukall to avert modify remeadiate, alter, effect in any signifigant celestial way. We are being asked to adjust the heavenly bodies. While you're here on my doorstep soliciting for climate adjustment donations let me just take a minute or two to beat you to a pulp.

The benefits of CO2 are measurable in signifigantly increaseed floral regeneration. We are being asked to starve the forests.

It's getting to the point where heads will have to be crushed. The nutty weak milk sucking underclass will have to be jetisoned in some important war. None of them can start a fukkin chain saw. The most useless generation ever generated. A gigantic waste of sperm.

You will perish in the budding ice age then. Fire is your friend, your generators made sure there were the BTUs to grow you up. You'll burn that tree or die.

I've not had any experiance with that bioform, However once dried I have little doubt that the cacti in question will convert redily. Everything will burn with a little help.

And people wonder why Canada is a minority country with a failing economy.

Yep, we have idiot politicians making policy based on "feelings" and "hope" instead of being based on sound reasoning.

You cannot purposely destroy business on the idea that they are evil billionaires and should pay for everyone else and expect business to thrive. Will Canada ever learn it's lesson? These days virtually ALL of business are publically owned. There ARE no evil billionaires. These sorts of companies are held mostly by funds which are mostly or entirely held by retirement funds.

This attack on business is an attack on the working man.
