No way. Ontario's total emissions is pretty bad as well.

Consider all the wealth Alberta and Sask. are pumping into Canada right now,then tell me about your graphs and why they are higher in these 2 provinces.

Duh!

It has never been anything but a political agenda posited by radical environmentalists and their viciously anti-human ideology. The more that becomes obvious, the more frenzied the hysteria becomes around it.

Listen to the major American networks now and they lead every news telecast with breathless expositions of 'extreme weather'.. selectively choosing extreme examples and ignoring those that don't jive with its political objective. Hence the coldest winter in a generation in Europe and central Asia .. the cool weather on the west coast.. are ignored.. and a short heat wave in the middle of the continent blown into the dimensions of a catastrophe.. and harbinger of things to come.

The miniscule human input to the carbon content of the atmosphere is completely overwhelmed by normal geophysical activity.. and even that doesn't effect the weather in substantial or prolonged parts. Hence the predictability of weather patterns since the last Ice Age. The only significant and lasting effect on the weather is variations of the sun's radiation.

So relaxe. Be assured you are being lied to by AGW proponents, who have anything but your best interests at heart.

Do you have support for even one of this Gish Gallop of silly observations.

I guess you dont see the correlation between employment and your graphs.
Your the one talking about our environment being harmed,looks fine to me,maybe you should leave the basement and see the world outside.

Compare with Luxembourg, which has a much higher GDP per capita than Saskatchewan or Alberta both, and has much lower emissions per person.

You could get a lot more work done if you didn't bathe or clean up your house too. Alberta and Saskatchewan don't need to neglect their responsibilities to be successful.

That's 41 Mt C02 out of 692 Mt C02.. otherwise, no more than 6% of the total GHG output.

Read the line below Electricty and Heat Generation. Compare production of oil from Mt to Residential Mt. Which is growing faster? It's not the oil industry is it?

Whereis the CO2 coming from? Maybe your barking up the wrong resources or industries?

You would think Ontario has enough of it's own problems that flossy would focus more on them then posting every single article he can about the west and how bad it is.

Allmost like theres an agenda here or he's an NDP hack.

Hey Ka-ka.... How do you have so much time on your bulldozer dial-up? I mean ... if you're so great at everything you have a thousand years experience on, shouldn't you be in demand to actually do something other than play on the pooter?

No ... wouldn't give a damn for you or anyone like you. I guess, in short, I just don't care much for braggarts.

Go ahead.... One-up it. I know you wanna....

The list of emissions by countries is irrelevant to this question, Walter. Canada had a Kyoto commitment that should have been achieved by 2012 - or as well as we could. China, as a developing country had only to make inventories and measurements. To prepare for the new round that Canada just sabotaged.But, the fact is,that China although its emissions are increasing (unavoidably at this time) has done far more to prepare for eventual - and not too much longer delayed, reductions.

China is the world's largst investor in renewable production and technology. For its part in the stimulus programmes a couple of years ago, China devoted the bulk to renewable generation. Wind and Solar. By this, it put itself in the driver's seat for the inevitable push to develop and sell the tools and the technology in the future.

OTTAWA — Members of a federal advisory panel, who recently learned their organization was on the chopping block, are sending Prime Minister Stephen Harper a "reality check" on the economic dangers of his global warming policies.

Want to bet he doesn't listen?

Imagine one of those freaks with extreme notions not based on reality that you knew in high-school were to get power.

Operationally, the only difference between his Reformation-of-the-Nation and the Nazi-reformation-of-Germancy is that he's feeling smug about being more sneaky-quiet about it than was Hitler.

Currently, there's two main theories behind the behavior:

1) He knows he's a tool of Satan and thinks the million years or so of secret bum-**** joy he gets as reward for his part in bringing the world down will be worth it before getting eaten, which means he doesn't have a clue how long infinity is. How long did it feel to you as a child would it take to become older, but it happened before you noticed anyway, didn't it?

2) He thinks he's been let in on the secret of where God came from, Who didn't want to talk about it when Moses asked about it at the burning bush, which is that the capitolistic idealization of Social Darwinism is real, such that on the planet God came from it was only those who saved trillions and got others to build escape-rockets/fall-out-shelters/arks who got to live while leaving the builders behind, such that all Harper-action is towards enabling shareholders to become super-rich enough to build themselves survival chambers to survive after the global collapsed caused by their economic drive to become a survivor caused.


Just out of curiosity...

How many people in here think that after Armagedon, which Harper acts like he's working to accelerate, in order for (I'm guessing) himself to be there in person to feel the joy of seeing Jesus come out of the clouds in order to hear Him say:

"Go Forth and Be Capitalists reaching out to gain control of everything. Your height in Heaven shall be based on how many you put-down and gather to stand upon".

?

At this point, lots of people go nuts feeling like they can't tell the difference between objectives of God versus those of the Devil.

The difference is, one way you can keep growing forever, and the other way you get to be food for one wanting to grow forever.

Next you get gnarlies going, "but the reason we fought for this free society was so I could be a free wolverine".

Right... ever read the memoirs of what's-his-name the Brit able to psychologically work with Arabs during the first world war?

What if the comparison is appropriate? What if we are heading to totalitarianism. Apart from Godwin's law being one man's opinion and not a law of any kind.

The question is: 'Who will be the dictator(s) of the new regime?"

In my book, those groups/individuals that unilaterally determine that 'the debate is over' before any such activity occurred are in line for the leadership.

Asked about the changes to environmental law proposed in the budget, Mulcair compared Environment Minister Peter Kent to a clueless journalist portrayed by comedian Will Ferrell in the movie Anchorman.

Quote:

"We have Mr. Kent who simply reads whatever is in front of him. He reminds me of Will Farrell’s character Ron Burgandy," Mulcair said.

"I mean, he’ll just read whatever it says on his piece of paper. And he doesn’t even have to understand, it doesn’t matter, he’ll stand up and say everything’s going well, and they’ll just keep repeating those lines."
