This publication calls Canada a climate criminal — Here's why they're wrong

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

Did you know Canadians are now one of the world's largest extractors of climate pollution per capita, and our increasing extraction has become a “supersized gamble” that threatens both climate hope and our economic stability? 

Well, if you read the ultra progressive climate alarmist publication the National Observer, then you’d know that.

A recent piece published by Barry Saxifrage entitled “Canadians are making a supersized gamble on climate and the economy” basically condemns Canada and Canadians as climate criminals using the old analytic fallacy of per capita carbon emissions.

Watch as I fill you in on how terrible Mr. Saxifrage thinks we are compared to our peers and also explain where he fails by trying to use per capita emissions.

It amazes me that people still push the idea that coal, oil and gas can be replaced by wind and solar when we have the prime example of Ontario who took that approach and seen electricity prices soar.

We know that baseload power can’t yet be provided by wind or solar generators.

The National Observer is an activist publication that rarely operates in a world of rationality or reality when it comes to climate change and energy production.

If they were serious about reducing carbon intensive energy production and extraction processes and were willing to be realistic about all other considerations, then they would start espousing the virtues of hydroelectric and nuclear power.

But that would mean turning their back on their activist class of donors who currently oppose the building of hydroelectric projects like Site C here in BC or the Lower Churchill project in Labrador.

Pot not legal? Try a guilt trip. You can purchase carbon offsets at the door. I am Canadian but not “Canadians”, speak for your self & double that sentiment when it comes to JT. I look for a rock to either crawl under or bash my head with when ever he speaks.

Barry Saxifrage is a journalist….he is not the prophet Mohammed(peace be unto him)……the prophet Mohammed (peace be unto him) never prophesied anything like the false prophecies of this kuffar Barry Saxifrage concerning the end times. Barry Saxifrage’s writings are an insult to islam…..a fatwa just might be in order…..:-)

Besides…according to the prophesy of the prophet Edgar Casey the world ended on winter solstace in 2011 just like the Mayan calendar predicted .

It will be remembered in history…far beyond any date the prophets of doom would imagine…that the once venerated livlihood called “science” of this era…..sold itself out like the Alchemists electroplating lead objects with gold salts for funding to research analine dyes from coal tar while being the speculative stuff of story tellers.

Oh yes…this is not the first time “scientists” sold snake oil for funding.

My friend in Quebec says they should’ve cleared the land before they built the dams. The trees that are immersed under water capture the mercury, contaminating the water system and the aboriginals are reporting high levels of mercury poisoning

Bill Elder commented:
“This isn’t science, or environmental concern or even a remote resemblance to journalism – this is radical leftist 5th column subterfuge at a peak level – deal with it as such.”
Thank you Bill for sharing your acumen! We would all be wise to remind ourselves of the “cut to the core of the matter” you have so adroitly performed!
Bill, if I attribute the quote appropriately, may I use it on occasion to continue the important edification you have initiated?

Indeed Jim Webb… And the latest weather forecast has more of that damn Global Warming “white stuff” falling on Vancouver this Saturday… Yet another day Mayor Moonbeam will probably not be bicycling to City Hall…

Fake analytics by fake enviros for a fake problem.
I hope they’ve enjoyed the Global Warming Vancouver has experienced this winter, and trust they have left the thermostats in their West Hastings offices at zero as a shining example of emissions stewardship.

Watch how whenever they push a little too hard and cross the line a bit and they wake a few too many people up they back off, throw out some bandaids, platitudes and rebates and then after things quiet down again plow straight back into it. They empower each other and can’t destroy us fast enough.
commented 2017-03-03 01:42:34 -0500
Bill Elder-as usual you nailed it. Everybody who can still think for themselves has to realize that this has nothing to do with climate change. The more destruction and ruin Notley, Wynne and Trudeau inflict on us the more they believe they are winning because in their minds they are. It’s outright treason in the first degree.

The National Observer, the Vancouver Observer and the Tyee are all lower mainland rags that are totally funded by Tides and their radical environmental agenda. They are just one reason for the large number of flakes in the greater Vancouver area…they read the bullshit and fall for it hook line and sinker.

Plus they can get bent.

They can all go get bent. And i wonder why they never call out celebs who are probably the highest per capita offenders on the whole planet?

Just looked at my utility bill.There are 3 fixed charges on it.We used $7 worth of water that ended up with a sewage charge with the fixed charges equaled about $80.Then the hydro itself with all the mombojumbo equaled $141.00.Then the insult of hst.You know the tax that Chretien was going to get rid of until he got elected.
Where is all the energy from Niagara falls going?The line to southern gontario is still not hooked up.So just where is that power going?When ever you let the government run anything they always screw it up.This country is fucked.Time to drain the swamp.

More dams, more nuclear power and CHEAP new technologies do exist to lower so-called green house gas emissions. But the eco-freak industry is owned by the elitist globalists and oil and coal producers. The only way oil/coal use will be reduced is if these clean methods of energy production are increased.
Wind and solar are espoused by the oil/coal industries because they know how expensive and unreliable it is and therefore will perpetuate the use of fossil fuels.
If there was lots of cheap electricity available via the aforementioned, and carbon taxes taken off our electric bills, more people would be driving electric cars and using less fossil fuels…oh, wait…nevermind.

Wind and solar has not yet in any i stance in any country ever replaced oil, coal and gas.

Even the “model country for green technology”, Germany, had to abandon the green energy and build coal power plants.

This person who wrote we are criminals, I can agree with and also say, when your ready, show us a better way that does not cost a Million dollars per person to get it going. Until then, shut the hell up.
Sure, we have a GO bus running out of this town, to take would take a good 4 hours to get to Sunnybrook Hospital, in Toronto, from Brantford Ontario and cost me about 6 times more than taking my car. My car can get me there in under 2 hours. And to add to that, the GO Bus, does not operate early enough for me to make a 9 AM appointment at Sunnybrook, and spending a night at a hotel in Toronto, I cannot afford and will not do. And driving the car is about 60% cheaper than taking the GO Bus. so until they fix it, just shut up.

Correct China and India first then come talk to me!

There are no “ultra progressives” Christopher, only dour dogmatic communists who disguise their anti-Canadian agendas as environmentalism – they still engage in the same tired old Marxist critical theory narratives that commies spread in the past to destabilize nations, but transpose them into environmental struggle instead of class struggle. The only crime here is that commies and their radical destabilizing propagandizing are not accountable to the law – spreading fraudulent crisis is akin to yelling fire in a crowded theater for a prank.

This isn’t science, or environmental concern or even a remote resemblance to journalism – this is radical leftist 5th column subterfuge at a peak level – deal with it as such.
