And there can be no doubt about it that climate barbie has made plenty of money from the Canadian taxpayer's for her roll in pushing her globalist climate barbie communist bull shit. A nice pension will be waiting for her and all at the Canadian taxpayer's compliments and expense. What a deal for climate barbie, eh? :D

Canada is a laggard in the international effort to avert catastrophic climate change, according to a major new study by Climate Analytics, a global, non-profit climate science and policy institute.

Article content
The organization’s “climate action tracker” describes Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s policies as “highly insufficient” in regard to achieving the United Nations’ Paris climate accord goal he signed Canada up for in 2015.


That is to hold global temperature increases to 1.5C above pre-industrial levels by 2100.

It says Trudeau’s policies are consistent with 4C of warming and Canada hasn’t committed sufficient funds to mitigate the impacts of climate change on poor nations.

We’re lumped in with a group of countries the climate tracker says are failing to do their part, including China, India, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Brazil, South Korea, Indonesia, Colombia, United Arab Emirates, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Vietnam.

Many previous studies have concluded Canada will fail to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to Trudeau’s target of 40% – 45% below 2005 levels by 2030, on the way to net zero by 2050.

And, to be fair, while the U.S. is doing slightly better than Canada — its efforts judged to be “insufficient” along with Chile, the European Union, Germany, Japan, Norway, Peru, South Africa and Switzerland — we’re not among the worst offenders.

They’re in the “critically insufficient” category — Iran, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore and Thailand.

But the most interesting finding in the climate tracker study is that the only country said to have climate policies compatible with achieving the Paris accord goals is Gambia, or, as it is formally known, Republic of The Gambia

But Gambia, a tiny country in West Africa of 2.5 million people, while relatively stable politically, is one of the world’s poorest nations, relying heavily on foreign aid.

That’s not a criticism of the country. It’s simply to note that the only nation on track to meet its climate target according to this study has nothing in common with a big, cold, northern, industrialized nation like Canada.


Now let’s look at the countries whose policies are “almost sufficient” to comply with the Paris accord.

Only one is a major industrialized nation — the U.K. The others are Costa Rica, Ethiopia, Kenya, Morocco, Nepal and Nigeria.

From this, we can deduce four things.

First, that as a big, cold, northern, sparsely populated country with significant fossil fuel resources, we will never hit Trudeau’s climate targets, or for that matter any target set by any Canadian government, Liberal or Conservative, as has now been the case for more than three decades.

Second, the only countries likely to succeed in meeting their climate targets will not be major industrialized nations but small countries in warmer climates with the help of foreign aid.

Third, despite Trudeau imposing a $40 per tonne carbon tax/price on Canadians this year, rising to $170 per tonne by 2030, preparing a second carbon tax called the clean fuel standard and committing almost $115 billion to climate action, clean growth and a green recovery since 2015, Canada will always be considered a climate laggard.

Fourth, carbon taxes/prices are becoming increasingly divorced from the claim their purpose is to combat climate change and correctly understood as a sin tax for using fossil fuels, raising the cost of almost all goods and services because almost all goods and services are created, grown, manufactured, or delivered using fossil fuel energy.

You have become quite the bullshit spreader alright. The climate crisis is like the covid crisis. They both are nothing more than a pile of lying excrement. Wake up, fool, it is getting later than you think. :cool:

After Grossly Inflating COVID Death Rates, the WHO’s Terrorist Connected Director General Tedros Now Claims Climate Change is the ‘Single Biggest Health Threat Facing Humanity’​

By Joe Hoft
Published October 12, 2021 at 6:27pm

In its report titled “The Health Argument for Climate Action,” the W.H.O. calls climate change the “single biggest health threat facing humanity” and calls on governments to “act to tackle the climate crisis, restore biodiversity, and protect health.”

“While no one is safe from the health impacts of climate change, they are disproportionately felt by the most vulnerable and disadvantaged,” the report asserts.

To “avert catastrophic health impacts and prevent millions of climate change-related deaths,” the world must limit temperature rise to 1.5°C, the report states, referencing the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

“The climate crisis is upon us, powered by our addiction to fossil fuels,” writes Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, W.H.O. Director-General in his foreword to the report. “The consequences for our health are real and often devastating.”

You are correct about others , Twin Moose posts article after article from the same sources as well and Boomer has taken over from Cliffy in the meme department .

I just watched the video where they launched that giant dildo (The craft I mean and not the paid passengers inside) into space briefly this morning. Sounds like one hell of a trippy trip if you can afford it.

I wonder what the carbon footprint for that 8&1/2 minutes was? Meh…Captain Kirk (at 90yrs old) made it into space as a promo so it was worth it. Got it in before COP26 too & probably less of a carbon footprint to boot!!!

http://apple.news/AD69OJYtETGa2hSMnDvf0eA More UN hypocrisy on climate change:

More than 120 world leaders will gather in Glasgow, Scotland next month for another huge United Nations meeting on climate change, denouncing fossil fuels and proclaiming that “oil is dead”…etc….

Meanwhile, their governments are scrambling to procure oil, coal and natural gas in the face of a global energy shortage, as their economies begin to recover from the world-wide recession caused by the pandemic.
Politicians and global elites (& Greta’s) fly in from all over the world, leaving giant carbon footprints in their wake, and then pontificate about everyone else having to consume less and lower their standard of living to avoid catastrophic climate change.

The UN hasn’t figured out after a quarter century of these events — held in many of the world’s leading tourist destinations — that they run counter to its message of reducing fossil fuel use and should be held by video-conferencing….but what do I know?

This year its demonization of fossil fuels and uncritical praise of “green energy” will sound particularly hollow, given that the global economy desperately needs the fossil fuel energy provided by oil, coal and natural gas, to power itself out of the global recession caused by the pandemic.

The reason is that renewables, like wind and solar power, aren’t reliable enough to do the job, because their power is intermittent and cannot provide base load power to the electricity grid on demand.
This should be the year the UN comes to grips with the reality that the transition from fossil fuels to renewables must be done sensibly to avoid energy shortages that send the cost of living for ordinary people skyrocketing.
Instead, their likely message will be that the world’s need for fossil fuel energy means we must convert to renewables faster, which makes no sense.


This time there will be as many as 25,000 delegates travelling great distances by jet during a plague and — this will shock no one — as the BBC reports “COVID rules will be relaxed … (delegates) will not require to be fully vaccinated.” Of course not. Global warmers have virtue-signalling immunity.

There is no question how we got here. A couple of sentences from an opinion piece by David Blackmon in Forbes carries all the insight required: “Every new regulation, no matter how noble-minded, has (had) a cost, and the ‘energy transition’ has already demanded wave after wave of new regulation on fossil fuels. Claiming these actions bear no cost or consequence is simply absurd.”

All one needs to know is that while the western world is self-flagellating, China continues to build the equivalent of more than one coal-fired power plant a week, with no mention nor any consequences from the globalist elites.

Anyway, carry on. “Go Earth Muffins!!”

Nope. Just another big globalist virus like created fiasco pile of bullshit coming our way once again. Tedros is just one of those many other pro globalist sucks that like to suck the big one. LOL.

This climate change nonsense will soon become the new covid virus crisis of tomorrow. Will there be a vaccine mandate produced quick enough that we can all take for this new climate change crisis virus to protect us all from drowning and dying from this climate change crises coming our way soon by chance?

If big pharma can get their way, they will no doubt be allowed to come out with some kind of a climate change vaccine for us all to be forced to have to take or we will not be allowed to travel until we do. I think that good old Bonnie the commie Henry would be looking forward to this new crisis so she can once again get her knickers and all of her nice and fancy shoes all wet. I heard that Bonnie Poo loves to buy shoes. She must have a shoe fetish? Just saying. :ROFLMAO:

When it comes to the big boys with all of their big toys and their big bucks there is no such a thing as a carbon footprint. When the big boys are questioned by someone about carbon footprints they will no doubt ask as to what is a carbon footprint. But if they do know all about carbon footprints, they will no doubt reply, awe that carbon footprint. Well that is just meant for those little sheeple people to get them to decrease their use of fossil carbon producing fuels. It was never meant for us big boys. :rolleyes:

China thumbs nose at climate targets as it plans to build more coal power stations and ramp up oil and gas exploration to solve its energy crisis just weeks ahead of COP26 summit​

  • Beijing plans to build new coal-fired plants and intensify oil and gas exploration after being hit by blackouts
  • China had committed to capping carbon emissions by 2030 but Premier hinted pledge could be scrapped
  • Move will cause alarm ahead of the COP26 summit in Glasgow in two weeks, and is a major blow to the UK's plans for securing a global agreement on phasing out coal
