Is it not WILDLY FUNNY just how many Entitlements LIE-berals claim????????????/
They insist they are entitled to be angry when they dont get as much gravy as they THINK is their due!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And LIE-berals reserve the right to insult the rest of us when we get angry over being ROBBED by grossly entitled LIE-berals!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here is an article detailing the failure of LIE-beral environmental policy. With some comments of my own in brackets):

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wants to divert public attention away from the embarrassing reality Canada is far behind fulfilling his 2015 Paris climate accord commitments to reduce our industrial greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions linked to climate change.
(Our idiot Boy Justin is also working hard to hide the absurdity of the LIE-beral carbon credit plan in which LIE-berals ship off billions of dollars to third world pest holes in exchange for so called carbon credits- nebulous things that are hugely costsly but cannot be seen or measured or used in any practical way as they are nothing but figments of LIE-beral imagination! Our idiot Boy is desperate to avoid being questioned as to how these back door foreign aid projects to socialist despots will help the environment or Cdns in any way!)
That’s why Climate Change Minister Catherine McKenna is declaring a “war on coal,” in conjunction with the U.K., at this week’s annual United Nations’ gabfest on climate change in Bonn, Germany.
(And how is it that Ontari-owe LIE-berals IGNORED the war on coal and bought into a Yankee power generation company that burns LOTS of coal- AND is currently embroiled in a massive pollution lawsuit that it will very likely lose- and which will put LIE-beral investors into the costly position of having to bail out their power company investment- at massive cost to Ontari-owe tax payers!)
That the Trudeau Liberals are posing as world leaders on getting rid of coal to produce electricity — the top source of industrial GHG emissions globally — is absurd.
While Canada gets only 10% of its electricity from coal — compared, for example, to China and India at 70%, Germany at 40% and the U.S. at 30% — this has nothing to do with anything Trudeau, McKenna and the federal Liberals have done.
They inherited that 10% figure when they took office in 2015, because Canada gets most of its electricity from hydro and nuclear power.
For domestic political reasons, McKenna is especially targeting the United States, where President Donald Trump has announced America plans to withdraw from the Paris accord and revive its coal industry.
“If the U.S. is going to step back, we’ve said we’re going to step up, and that’s exactly what we’ll be doing,” said McKenna, a clever turn of phrase, typical of Liberal spin doctors in the Trudeau government, that is meaningless in reality.
That’s because mainly for reasons of economics, rather than environmentalism, the use of coal to produce electricity has plummeted in the U.S. in recent years.
(Ontari-owe LIE-berals have closed TWO coal burning plants in a decade while Yankees in northern states have closed 140! Yet LIE-berals want to claim THEY did the heavy lifting on climate change- EVEN AS they invest OUR MONEY in a Yankee coal burning generator! And as LIE-berals are minority shareholders they can be expected to be too busy trying to pay their share of the company cleanup of its past pollution mess to be bothered trying to shift the company away from coal-in fact the company is facing such a large lawsuit that its survival is in doubt!)
It’s also a major reason why, over the past decade, the U.S., without imposing a national carbon price, has reduced its GHG emissions at a rate five times faster than Canada.
The Americans are replacing coal-fired electricity with cheaper electricity derived from natural gas power generation, using natural gas freed from huge domestic reserves through the use of fracking.
(The fracking business is certainly worrying thanks to the immense amounts of toxic chemicals injected into bedrock- chemicals we can expect to return eventually to the surface to pollute our drinking water with crap our water treatment plants cannot remove- There are of course -major natural gas deposits that could be easily exported from western Canada- but not without building pipelines and LIE-berals do not want pipelines because burning fossil fuel is evil- unless LIE-berals need votes or a good investment! LIE-berals recently converted a coal bunring generator in the Thunder Bay area to burn “bio-mass” - meaning pellets made of wood and paper and other flammable refuse- but as there is no such producer in North America- LIE-berals have done a deal to ship in needed fuel from Europe! The carbon foot print of this generator is not exactly SHRINKING! But LIE-berals DID SAVE 60 union Hog jobs which WAS the LIE-beral goal- though the plant now produces electricity at a price TWENTY FIVE TIMES HIGHER than other means of generation! There is no price that is too high for LIE-berals to make us pay- just so long as they can cling to their power and entitlements!)
For that reason, the use of coal to produce electricity in the U.S. has plummeted from 40% of all power generation in 2011 to 30% today.
Mainly because natural gas burns at half the carbon intensity of coal, total U.S. GHG emissions dropped 11.5% below 2005 levels (the base year for calculations for Canada and the U.S.) over the past decade, compared to only 2.2% for Canada.
Between 2014 and 2015, the last year for which statistics are available, U.S. emissions dropped 2.3%, compared to 0.69% for Canada.
(Cdn numbers might look better if LIE-beals had not invested so heavily in mouldy green energy! Wind and solar power in Ontari-owe is so unreliable that LIE-berals must keep a bunch of gas fired generators fully charged up and ready- 24/7 to take over at a moments notice when the mouldy green fails! The numbers are skewed by natural gas plants burning steadily without actually producing anything- except cash for life for Hogs- the grossly entitled owners of most of that mouldy green energy and the beneficiaries of the sale of OUR Hydro system to “private” investors who happen to be LIE-beral FRIENDS!)
The fact this year’s annual UN carbon-spewing climate gabfest is being held in Germany is ironic, given that Germany has lectured Canada about not doing enough to reduce our GHG emissions.
However, while German officials love to boast that Germany gets 35% of its electricity from renewable energy, it gets 40% of it from coal, compared to 10% for Canada.
What’s more, over half of Germany’s power generation from coal comes from extremely dirty lignite or brown call.
(Lignite has a very high and poisonous sulphur content!)
Rather than touting yet another Liberal promise to phase out the use of coal to produce electricity in Canada by 2030, McKenna should answer two questions this week in Bonn.
First, will Canada meet Trudeau’s Paris commitments to reduce our GHG emissions to 17% below 2005 leaves by 2020 and by 30% by 2030? Second, if so, how will it do this, exactly?

(LIE-berals COULD significantly reduce our Cdn carbon output simply by cutting back on gravy for civil service Hogs and Sunshine List poobahs! Air travel is the dirtiest way to move either passengers or people and the people in our socierty with the most money are the ones found most often on planes- therefore less money for Hogs- which we cannot supply anyway without breaking our economy- means less air travel and less pollution. Less money for Hogs means they buy smaller- easier to heat homes. Buy smaller more fuel efficient cars and drive less often. Less money for Hogs means less aimless gas guzzling wandering on atv`s and sea-doos- Hogs might even learn to enjoy a ride in a canoe or rowboat? LIE-berals CAN reduce our carbon footprint but ONLY if they are prepared to lose the support of the greedy civil service Hogs who are breaking us with their endless ENTITLEMENTS! So LIE-berals will NOT take any of the easy carbon shots as they wish to cling to power at ANY PRICE!).
