Lowering Saskatchewan emissions by 50% = 96% loss in GDP? (50% / 1.24% = 40 x 2.4% = 96%?)

Saskatchewan will freeze and starve, & Trudeau with retire with a PM's Pension in a few years & live off his Trust Fund in the Caribbean. Sounds like a good deal. All we have to do is agree to buy his magic beans carbon tax, or be forced to buy his magic beans carbon tax . It's good to have choices....

Someone has to pay for those conference attendees, you cannot holiday I mean confer in exotic locations without spending money .

Deadly heat, spreading diseases, overwhelmed hospitals: A new study warns that climate change is already posing health risks worldwide.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/28/c...s&ref=headline

climate change deniers might want to do a rethink..........as who will they blame when they get ill from the changes taking place. The intensifying heat is already a problem in places. Just because the lunatic Trump is denying it for whatsoever delusional reasons.......... does not negate the evidence that is available. If there was MONEY in climate change.....Trump; would be all over it.
