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.
