Alberta's NDP meets with "Australia's David Suzuki" -- "foreign scaremonger" Tim Flannery

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator

Alberta's NDP met with Professor Tim Flannery in the lead up to the provincial budget.

Why should you care? You should care because Tim Flannery is Australia's version of David Suzuki.

Tim Flannery has a long history of being wrong. He predicted in 2008 that the arctic would be ice free by 2013. But that hasn’t stopped him from capitalizing on fear and alarmism, writing book after book about our impending climate apocalypse. They keep rescheduling that apocalypse on us.

Besides being wrong all the time, Flannery supports large carbon taxes, an expensive phase out of coal fired electrical generation and leaving 80 percent of all the world's fossil fuels in the ground, including 75 percent of the oilsands. Sounds like he's not that big of a fan of our province.

What do you think it means when the government in charge of our resource based economy lends these sorts of radicals an ear? I think it means nothing good.

Spectacular! Well said, hear hear!

Yousa said “I guess no one was concerned when Harper brought the other Aussie here right? Lynton Crosbie – but he ran with his tail between his legs when he got trounced in this election. lol.” That is another lie to;d by the MSM, Crosbie was never part of the Conservative campaign team. If you only listen to liars you become one yourself.

Ron to quote you…" but this Australian Suzuki is laughable with his bizarre fearmongering about impending climate collapse!"
You could not be more correct…BUT the sad part of it is that millions are buying into this BS. The more extreme and unbelievable it is the more it is believed. Perhaps like the comment, if you owe the bank $100 you have a problem, if you owe the bank $100,000,000 they have a problem, metaphorically we can say a little lie is bullshit but a big lie supersedes all, even the truth.
Throw another virgin into the volcano.

Peter, I understand that may indeed be the case. However, compromising on the truth and embracing political correctness (paying lip service to lies and distortions of reality) got them nowhere in the end. I would rather go down swinging standing boldly on the truth than go down with a whimper. Another lie that the Conservatives did not address head on is that Islam is a religion of peace. Spoke of the terrorists as “radical” Islam, a perversion of true Islam, which is nonsense. Islam is what Islam is as defined by the Koran, the Hadiths (collections of reports quoting what the ‘prophet’ Muhammad said) and the example of Muhammad’s life as a warlord.

Ron, they probably realized that the global warming lie is indoctrinated too firmly in society that they had to pay lip service to it. My guess is that they would have done just that, lip service and no more, no carbon tax, etc.

PETER NETTERVILLE, “I wonder how many who voted NDP are sorry that they did and how many are making excuses for the NDP.” Another possibility is that the voters by and large got what they wanted. Disappointingly, Wildrose abandoned its skepticism about global warming and embraced this political correctness (this lie) so that on this matter there was no distinction between the NDP and Wildrose.

Alberta always pulled through when there were recession and oil prices dropped with some job losses, but with the NDP in charge this Alberta recession is far, far, worse because of the NDP, and it is only going to get worse if they continue on their present path. The NDP are bringing in every tax that Prentice was going to bring in (and one of the reasons why he lost the election) and even more taxes yet.

This NDP government has to go. I wonder how many who voted NDP are sorry that they did and how many are making excuses for the NDP.

Socialists hiring socialists to push a socialist agenda.

And when the global economy collapses, then it should get interesting. Oil closed near $43 today. Natural Gas closed near 15 year lows. Commodity index below March 2009 lows.

This is deflation folks and could prove daunting for any tax and spend socialist government including Notley’s. Expect personal taxes to rocket for any financial collapse.

When you point out some nonsense coming from the left, the trolls are often quick to jump in and claim “fearmongering”, but this Australian Suzuki is laughable with his bizarre fearmongering about impending climate collapse! Just as being a palaeontologist evolutionist who inventively makes up just so stories about the past, he makes up just so stories of what the future holds.

Close the oil sands. Clean up the environment.
The oil sands were created by mother nature, they are an oil spill on the surface of the land, and we are cleaning it up.

The other day I was looking for information on real pollution, you know, toxins being dumped in our waterways, particulate mater and other toxins being pumped into our air. All I could find was information about how much CO2 was being emitted, the world seems to be ignoring real dangers and focusing only on fantasy.

The maximum ocean height when there was no Ice at either pole was only 10 metres higher than today. Granted that is significant but is a far cry from 8 stories which is generally around 32 metres which is oddly close symbolically when converted to an imperial measurement : 10 m ~ 32.5 feet. Even giving him credit for mixing up measurement systems, for the Antarctic Ice Cap to completely melt, summer temperatures at the south pole would have to increase over 12 C for decades maybe longer. Using climate models that would require CO2 levels at more than 300% (1000 ppm) of what they are today (330 ppm) so even if we forced more volcanic activity and cut down all non food bearing trees we would also have to burn all the stocks of fossil fuel and probably all the wood from the the non food bearing trees. Problem is, the chlorophyll based Ocean life and remaining food trees and food vegetation would suck up the CO2 so it would be difficult to sustain such warm temperatures long enough to force this to come about especially since all fossil fuel would have been exhausted. Basically we would have to turn the planet into a hell like atmosphere that predated the Triassic Period (AKA before the Jurassic).

The quote from Patrick More is right on. Of course, the international Marxist’s at the UN have admitted that it’s not about science. It’s about destroying the capitalist free market system.

As Patrick Moore wrote: The collapse of World Communism and the fall of the Berlin Wall led to the environmental movement being hijacked by the political and social activists who learned to use green language to cloak agendas that had more to do with anticapitalism and antiglobalization than with science or ecology.

Yvette said, "They must really think that Albertans are dumber than they are. "

I am sure they do, and I am sure our resident leftie trolls will heartily agree, but Notley may bust be getting an eye opener before her four years are up.
commented 2015-10-27 20:02:06 -0400
Notley…..isn’t she beautiful?? Rachel & her merry men are very busy these days, spinning their fake climate change & looking for more ways to screw Albertans. They’re doing a fine job with their just released budget. Imagine that, borrowing, borrowing, but think of all the jobs they will create so I’m sure all will be honky dory again in Alberta. They must really think that Albertans are dumber than they are.
