One week, 4 green energy FAILS: How politicians make money go away… not carbon emissions

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

This week was filled with green energy policy failures proving that politicians who back these plans are using them to virtue signal on the environment, not to achieve results. It’s becoming undeniable they know they’re not going to get results with these costly schemes. 

So why do they do it?

Watch as I run down a short list of some failed schemes just this past week and explain how politicians use them to politicize an issue so they can then virtue signal over it.

First it was news of an unattainable emissions reduction goal, then Ontario’s cap and trade program failed to bring in the projected amount of money, then Vancouver’s irrational natural gas ban and Christy Clark’s tax and ban on thermal coal - neither of which will reduce emissions or change the temperature.

In fact, I have yet to see a green energy policy that will cut global emissions but they certainly are effective at cutting our incomes, making people and businesses poorer.

But when you tax people into poverty and force businesses to close their doors, there will come a time when there will be no money to collect.

And on top of it, despite all these green energy plans that were put in place, Canada’s emissions haven’t even dropped a percentage.

These green schemes are just another way for the government to line their pockets. There isn’t a government plan that’s going to make a difference because problems don’t disappear just because you throw money at them.

Cap and Trade is nothing more than a Liberal tax and spend program. Its been proven to be ineffective at lowering emissions. Only a Fee and Dividend model where 100% of the Fee is returned to people as a dividend will work to reduce emissions.

Instead of paying carbon tax and nothing too show for it let’s make some real changes something easy would be packaging I go get groceries or do any amount of shopping there is a full bag of garbage brought home that should be easy too change get after that for a real change

They are not even trying to hide behind their thin excuses anymore, they will lie right at you while looking you in the eye..!!
I can’t wait to here the spin they apply to this as sooner or later that question will be a asked.

One add’l point is why are we increasing our population exponentially with mass migration if we have to reduce the amount of CO2? By importing hundreds of thousands of people per year who were probably not driving cars, did not have to heat their houses, etc., to a cold country like ours, aren’t the Libtards increasing the gaz emissions? LOL

If one opens their eyes one can quickly come to the conclusion that this is all agenda driven.!!

Great report Holly – informative,timely, factual, esoteric., something we voters can reference when making informed debate or ballots with our manipulating politicians – truly useful inquisitive reporting something lost to MSM.

Why dose Wynne never mention her Garbage Disposal Furnace that was built East of Toronto. She was once asked about the Emissions from this massive chimney toting Furnace. Her reply was that there is nothing to be worried about, the furnace has built in scrubbers, emissions are not an issue.

I am sure there are a lot more chemicals in household garbage than there are in Coal or Oil. This being the case Ms Wynne, why can’t we have Oil and Coal fired Generators for our Hydro.

Doesn’t fit the scam???
