Pushing back on CBC’s biased coverage of climate change poll

Brian LilleyRebel Co-Founder

At Rebel, we tell the other side of the climate debate story so I sat down with Tom Harris, Executive Director of the International Climate Science Coalition, to discuss the details behind his complaint to the CBC Ombudsman about the network's coverage of a climate change poll.

Watch our interview to hear the details behind why he decided to push back against this biased poll with the suspicious timing which suggested it was more about trying to push our federal and provincial leaders into having greenhouse gas emission reductions.

Whether there is scientific consensus on this question is highly debatable. One thing that appears certain is consensus in the media.

Going to the CBC ombudsman is a joke; part of the same corrupt enterprise.

Johnny Cool asked, “My question is, what has been done to go after these foreign polluters in order to tax them with a carbon tax, since they are the main polluters of this earth”

That is exactly why the whole thing is so ridiculous. You can’t police China or India, two of the biggest ones, China says yeah yeah, by the year 3035, we’ll talk about it again, smiles for the photo op and carries on. None of its fair or makes sense, so consideration for carbon dioxide sinks like forests and lakes don’t even enter into it. Besides carbon dioxide, and the greenhouse effect isn’t even considered to be valid science by anyone anymore other than the globalists who are using it as a vehicle for political and social change. Its all a scam, a farce, and people aren’t buying it anymore.

Before any government starts imposing a carbon tax in our country, I would like to say that they have only considered, only the eimissions from our industry output, and which is very wide spread throughout this great country of ours in order to generate our resources industry income to run this country But it seems to be able to calculate a carbon tax, which might be a possibility considering JT’s “love in” with the outgoing Us president and a big waste of our tax money since Obama won’t be around within the next 18 to 24 months. However, it appears that the crazy calullaters sound like they might omit the large amount of forests and lakes that we all have in northern Canada that absorb carbon dioxide and greenhouse gasses, some of which have been emitted by the larger countries like China and India and Russia, and for the agriculture growing provinces in Canada, for the plants that they grow for the amount of greenhouse gasses that they absorb from their foreign pollution of the atmosphosfer. My question is, what has been done to go after these foreign polluters in order to tax them with a carbon tax, since they are the main polluters of this earth, and how much would be our Carbon Tax -Credit relating to the obsorption of Carbon gasses relating to the forests and grassland that are a great vast part of our northern forests and lakes and farming crops within the prairies. Just asking for opinions and comments.

BNN ain’t much better Andrew Bell had Erin Flanagan, Director Federal Policy for the Pembina Institute, on his commodity show today. She was allowed to present the Institute’s agenda without any push back.
I guess I shouldn’t be suprised, even though BNN is a business channel I guess it is part of CTV an MSM mainstay.

So Loretta Lynch goes to committee and has to testify that their administration were actively looking into the possibility of legal actions against climate change deniers. Somehow this is ass backwards. Watching puff ball Justine ReTurdo and knock kneed skeleton Obama in the rose garden kissing each others ass was so vile and putrid that it was hard to watch. Of course Obama has tripled down by opening his mouth and out comes CARBON POLLUTION ! The actual pollution is the rhetoric spewing forth from these two and the other UN hugging rats like Notely Wynne Fruit Fly Gore et al. These fools should be the ones facing legal action for taking us down this phony path to financial ruin. I thought lying and STEALING were things we try to eliminate from government. These carbon levies etc. are such a ruse that its hard to imagine why the lemmings will follow but because of such HONEST reporting from the CBC and their ilk the masses might fall in line. I for one will not and why should tax payer money fund the Canadian Bias Corporation (giant lefty think tank) propaganda machine. And as another writer has said in the past, SELFIE does NOT speak for me.

There MUST BE SOMETHING we can do to fight the CBC. They are but a LIBERAL mouthpiece and they are dishonest and even corrupt. Can we petition the CRTC to revoke their licence?

I am thankful for climate change or we would all be dinosaur food.

It’s good that all this climate shit has surfaced. It will eventually clear and climate will be deemed cyclical much like other processes on this planet and in our solar system and galaxy and that a few billion dots/humans on a planet don’t matter worth a shit.

All this socialist chaos on the cusp of a global financial collapse. How appropriate.

Can Mr. Harris put an affidavit of obligation onto these CBC executives and the ombudsman to force them to look into this and answer truthfully?

We must all understand, given the expert balloon prickers like Tim Ball on the ultimate scam of our era, that “Science” is not what it used to be…. “Science” has now evidently, been conveniently perverted to suit an international socialist imposition of international government control, via the United Nations, or for the sheer benefit of “carbon tax traders” like Al Gore… It is equivalent of selling “indulgences” in the Middle Ages for your predecessors to get out of purgatory…. A money grabbing sham!… Once again,- sigh! – it is worth repeating, that in any given year, a change in our Sun’s total radiation, of less than 1/10 of one percent, accounts for all of the the climate changes on our Earth… The rest is just “Bullshit”, and has been so for 4.6 billion years, or so…

So AGW pushers, when will any of your predictions come true? The recent ones have turned out to be total BS , like the 2013 prediction LMAO! Maybe GOre should go swimming in the melted ice.

Lad Reme… are so right. There’s no evidence of this myth they are continuously pushing. My head will explode if these politicians don’t put the brakes on. If they want to add more tax as if there aren’t enough yet, then show us the proof, otherwise shut your piehole & stop threatening the world with your made up, false, untrue, made up, scam or we’ll send the RCMP after you for being “deniers” that global warming is NOT HAPPENING & start a civil action suit for conning Canadians. This “denying” thing works both ways, not just for you as you might think.

To the best of my knowledge, ‘Connery’, from which Con or Con Artist is derived, is still listed as a crime in Canada. This being the case, the Liberal Government who in part, were elected because of their promise to cut Green House Gases, should be called to account for their act of Connery. They should also be made to explain on what grounds do they intend to levy a Carbon Tax on us. Let them stand up and prove that the myth of Global Warming is not a myth and that Mankind is responsible for any increase in global temperature.

The whole lot of them, including the CBC, should be thrown in Jail. At the very least a new Election should be called.

The UN are the ones responsible for this GW lie. Enough Links have been posted on these pages that prove it is a myth, the Links alone would fill a book.

The “real” deniers of science…

Patrick J. Michaels testifies before the Committee of Natural Resources at the hearing “An Analysis of the Obama Administration’s Social Cost of Carbon”

Climatologist Dr. Pat Michaels writes:
In his introductory remarks, Congressman Lowenthal (D-NY) went on the usual these-witnesses-are-climate-deniers rant. As I was the next speaker, I re-wrote my oral testimony to point out, in three spots, that people who did not recognize the low-sensitivity papers, or the huge disparity between the mid-tropospheric observed and modeled data, or the low sensitivity in the multiauthored Otto study (15 of the authors were lead authors in the last IPCC report), were in fact “science deniers”.

Judging from his reaction at the end of the hearing, it really got to him.

See the 3+ minute video here. It’s well worth the view!

UPDATE: The entire session is here: Regarding the “huge Disparity” between Models and observation. The Scientific Method clearly states that when your “prediction” is wrong, your Hypothesis is WRONG. In that simple statement lies the key to science. If you want to see just how bad the CAGW Models really are? Not ONE can skillfully pass the above test. Not ONE!

In before the Michael Mann diatribe. His fingers are rapid typing as we speak, lol

Gee CBC is taking our 1.15 billion dollars for this year and using it to fund the big lie of man made global warming so the goverments of Canada can justify taxes for billions of dollars more. It’s all so depressing.
It gets better in the States though, the democrats are looking into have the AG bring civil actions against climate change “deniers”. Yeah, if you deny man made global warming you are on a par with people who deny the holocast and should be punished.
