Trudeau should try walking the walk on climate change

You have the dullards at home and abroad resisting the need for action. There are the petty critics leveling accusations of hypocrisy at those bold enough to take action on things like single-use plastics. And then there’s the tinfoil brigade who thinks carbon dioxide is simply wonderful stuff and the Earth can’t have enough of it. No, it’s not easy being green.

Say a prayer, then, for Justin “Carbon Tax” Trudeau who just winged his way to Japan on his 35-year old plane (GHG emissions = ?) for the G-20 Summit, where the debate on climate change won’t last as long as a fart in a hurricane, such is the geopolitical distemper of our times.

How weak will the climate change program be in the land of the Kyoto Accord? Well, the Americans have apparently already pressured the Japanese into downgrading the G-20’s previously agreed climate change language on the Paris Accord in the Summit communiqué.

Sorry climate emergency, the G-20 will instead be about Donald Trump and Xi Jingping, as the world waits to see whether a showdown can be averted between the United States and China. Will a trade truce be struck? Will the tariff walls come down? Will Huawei be allowed to resume its rapid creep across the West’s critical telecommunications infrastructure? Will Huawei’s Meng Wangzhou be bartered as part of a deal?

One thing we do know is Trump is coming into the meeting on blazing form. He’s already dumped on host (and frequent golfing buddy) Shinzo Abe, accusing him of being willing to sit back and watch a World War III between the U.S. and China on a Sony TV.

He’s also been tetchy about people asking about his bilateral meeting with his Russian handler. And he’s gone and accused former Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller of committing crimes ahead of Muller’s appearance before Congress.

No, even Mother Nature couldn’t push climate up the agenda under these circumstances. But given climate change is so central to the Trudeau brand and its prospects for re-election, what could Trudeau do to put it front and centre at home and abroad?

For one, he could start by staying at home at bit more often.

Air travel is a huge contributor to carbon emissions and much of international summitry is useless. Why go be a carbon-emitting fly on the wall in the Trump-Xi show, i.e. where Canada’s views aren’t solicited or listened to when given? Sure, it would be wonderful if Trudeau could buttonhole Xi on the margins of the G-20 to demand the release of our two abducted Canadians, but given the Chinese won’t even take our phone calls right now the chances of such a meeting are slim.

Instead of being ignored, why not announce that until further notice Canada will be dialling into future Summit sessions? Sure, it will drive the Global Affairs bureaucracy nuts, but it would send a message and be talked about. The Greenies would love it. And, sure, if another global economic depression arrives you go and meet face-to-face, but has a G-20 meeting truly mattered since about 2011 or so?

The same flight discipline should be applied at home, too. Instead of running a contest to ride the Liberal campaign plane around the country, as the Liberals are now doing, or taking the Challenger to Florida on holiday twice in one week, Trudeau should announce that, going forward, he will be restricting his travel and doing his announcements via video conference. Imagine how a campaign full of digital rallies, or a good old-fashioned (and less carbon intensive) train ride across Canada, would look and feel?

Mixing the Luddite with the high tech would start a different green conversation to the merits of carbon taxation and help counter any allegations of hypocrisy. It would finally put Trudeau’s money where his mouth has been for the past four years.

Because one of Trudeau’s main weaknesses is absolutely that he is a “do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do” politician. He railed against rich people getting child benefits throughout the 2015 campaign and then put two nannies on the 24 Sussex payroll the day after he won. He said the woman must always be believed on sexual harassment and kicked members out of his caucus for abuse, but then threw away the standard when a credible allegation was made against him. And he banned single-use plastics only to use them a few days later at a constituency meeting.

Yes, the flak for the single-use gaffe was overdone, but it does illustrate the difficulty in changing embedded behaviour. That is the climate change conundrum in a nutshell: everybody wants to do something as long as they don’t have to do much of anything.

Seeing a leader like Trudeau walking the walk—truly walking the walk—by restricting his enormous footprint and doing things differently would be a welcome bit of principle on climate change. Because as it stands, the Liberals’ position is that their plan would do a better job at not meeting Canada’s targets than the Tory plan.

Being a climate champion is hard work because it involves upending an entire way of life. If the Prime Minister of Canada is willing to do it, it makes it harder for others to say they won’t do their bit.

It's not just Groper though. I've noticed that those with money who scream the loudest about the climate are the worst offenders when it comes to emissions and other aspects of their "carbon footprint".

But here's the thing the AGW crowd doesn't get. Zero emissions is a total impossibility until we figure out zero point power generation. And even then we'll still need fossil fuels and other carbon-based resources for all the shit we like to have.

We could always be using a system based on Hydrogen peroxide, but noe, that would be feasible, affordable, easy to modify existing items for, would produce only pure air elements and water for pollution, and would make perfect sense.

Here's how Justin Trudeau promised change and didn't deliver

Budget not balanced

Electoral reform reneged

Indigenous reform still rocky

Scandals overshadowed


Disregarding the many failures this CTV article missed....just taking into consideration the points in article alone, he deserves a...

Madeleine Albright says 500,000 dead Iraqi Children was "worth it" wins Medal of Freedom

Madeleine Albright says 500,000 dead Iraqi Children was "worth it".....wins Presidential Medal of Freedom from Obama

As the anniversary of probably one of the most infamous responses in broadcasting history approaches, the woman who uttered it is shortly to be awarded "the highest honour" that America bestows upon civilians — the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Madeleine Albright, Iraq's Grim Reaper, of course, confirmed on Sixty Minutes (May 12, 1996) that the deaths of half a million children as a result of the absolute, all-embracing deprivations of the UN embargo were: "A hard choice, but the price, we think the price is worth it."

One cynical blogger, was so incensed that the header read: "Genocidal war criminal wins Presidential Medal whilst invoking Holocaust memories."

Yep...GAS and isr oil is perfectly safe for everyone young and old.

"A hard choice, but the price, we think the price is worth it."
What makes you think 'we' was a reference to America and not 'the Jewish people that are in control as that is who she takes her orders from.


What makes you think the decade of sanctions was the only time those methods have been used in the past. Cuba, Iran after 1979 (the year she also became a nuclear threat) or even Russia after the 1990 fall.


Economic sanctions would include bad medicine as well as no usefull. The 1918 flu is an example of how many they are willing to kill via 'medicine'. The total possible deaths would have to include the Black Death and the 200M it may have and even the death in Venezuela this year should be included to qualify just how little they care about 500,000 rag-tag children.
DU munitions used to be in the news a lot back then as some villages were dusted with that material and the birth defects were 'monitored' with no relief offered. That all stopped as soon a Japan blew up 4 reactors in a week, they now have a whole island that can be studied because that radiation is 'good for people'. A low dose that keeps on giving for a few 100 years will get them 'changes' that aren't the overdose that went on in Iraq.

A vid on South Africa admits diseases were used as the first shot in a war mean to exterminate the local as the war that followed would be 'one sided in the extreme there as well as Australia and North America rather than there were many accidental deaths. Diseases would have worked both ways and no explorers died from diseases they caught from 'the locals'.


The 'wicked witch of the world' would have been using 500M people in all when she said 500,000 was low enough to be worth it. That many probably means the sanctions were doing just what they were supposed to do. Gaza and the long term effects on a persons mental outlook has had 70 decades were they were not interrupted by having to kill all the witnesses. I'm going to go out on a limb and saw she had already stopped caring about the numbers long before she was ever in the position she reached when she laid the law down for all 'lesser races'. The stench includes the lie about recently finding out she was Jewish. Jerod may have clued her in.

Madeleine Albright Says She's 'Ready to Register as Muslim' to Protest President Trump



Albright called attention to her own diverse background in a post on Twitter, noting that she was “raised Catholic, became Episcopalian & found out later my family was Jewish.”

If you keep the part out where using it in a leaky stove will drive you insane due to the poisonous gasses rather than 'Cabin Fever' only comes from the uncouth who live in a cold climate most of the year. If you shoot holes in all of the stoves and the whole nation dies in one long winter are you insane or a master at war? (either should be shot on site and do 100 of their closest followers as a reminder to people in the future how bad of a 'mistake' that really was)
They should know the war is lost as their numbers get smaller every year compared to 'Us' and to come up with the solution of killing so many of us that the 1% at the moment will become more than the 50% that is the normal ratio for deciding that.

66% at the Vatican but nobody thinks any of them are sane anyway.

That's a new one. "Unless we can get to zero, there's no point in reducing."

I'll put it on the list.

If we can judge the man at the bottom of the Totem pole of power when do the ones at the top get a chance to explain what they have learned so far and what would they change if they had the chance. 95 of the world's population could accept that God is now (2019.5) turned his face so He is at least looking on 'His people' again and allowing them to do something that can avoid the fate that is fitting for the entity that us Satan's version of 'Church and the Collection Plate' as covered in the 'harlot' verses. They expire before the two witnesses do and they are the only ones who die in the war of Jesus against Satan. 4 days after that war is 'lost' they are resurrected and the same level of plagues that came to Egypt will come onto the world in just a few hours starting at Jerusalem.

That is when God is calling the shots, until then the 'fate of Jerusalem and the world is 'up for grabs'.

The reference to 'wars' means there will always be strife and the armies that carry the sword in Romans:13 are directed by the government that runs the nation. It does not mean there has to be as much way as possible as assign that God has not returned. Moses dies at the age of 120 for a reason, nobody will live longer than that until the day the two witnesses are resurrected and then they and everybody that is alive after them will have a celebration and when they are 1,000 years old and sinless. They get to be witnesses to see God send Satan and the remaining fallen angels (2 are 'missing' as they are in the lake of fire and 4 are a stain on the ground called 'the river of blood' that is what comes out when He puts 200M angelic horsemen onto 'the wine-press')


A big celebration could be had if the UN was moved to Jerusalem from DC and London and the Vatican would 'have offices there' as they would be the bank conduit between the World bank and 'the Nations, there are about 200 at the moment and the UN can make or break any one or any group just so we know who is at the top) The last 200 years have seen the flow go from the nations into the banks (at year end) That money could not be spent if they tried as the goal is to keep everybody as poor as possible as financial freedom is easy to control and it is as big of a disability in a capitalist world as having 8 arms and no legs would be. The move would see the reverse happen and all that money would 'be a gift' from 'the Jews' as directed to them through various passages in their holy books as a change from the 'exodus wars era' to the time of prosperity for the land under the 12 tribes and for whoever they traded with. (wars in the era were 'civil wars' and they would be something a court would settle, first for the Jews and then the rest of the planet. Have the into as lowkey as possible and save the 'celebration' for a decade (or 7) later when justice has been served (and a lot of money collected to keep the free stuff coming)


Jer:25:28-28:

And it shall be,

if they refuse to take the cup at thine hand to drink,

then shalt thou say unto them,

Thus saith the LORD of hosts;

Ye shall certainly drink.
For,

lo,

I begin to bring evil on the city which is called by my name,

and should ye be utterly unpunished?

Ye shall not be unpunished:

for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth,

saith the LORD of hosts.
Therefore prophesy thou against them all these words,

and say unto them,

The LORD shall roar from on high,

and utter his voice from his holy habitation;

he shall mightily roar upon his habitation;

he shall give a shout,

as they that tread the grapes,

against all the inhabitants of the earth.





Translate that to a functioning ICC and the fines pay for round 2 of renovations. The 1st round is a 'gift' that is repaid at a modest interest rate over 70 years. That is based in the Social credit party in Alberta after the war. They bundled all personal debt and the World Bank covered it and once it was repaid the money in the black was called 'the heritage Trust Fund, once the Politicians found it a bunch of new golf courses were built. Poof, as they say.
