Hippies hire gas guzzling cube van to spread anti-pipeline message

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Bill 1 was just introduced in Alberta. It spells out the end of Notley’s carbon tax, in just one week from now.

Jason Kenney is just the latest in a wave of new carbon tax fighting premiers lining up to take on Trudeau, joining premiers Scott Moe, Blaine Higgs, and of course, Doug Ford.

Our side is winning all over the place and it's making the environmentalist left so desperate that they have adopted one of my favorite Rebel tactics: billboard trucks!

The foreign-funded, pipeline hating hypocrites have taken to idling around Vancouver in a cube van to fight climate change.

The Burnaby Now story about the truck quoted a news release from an anti-pipeline environmentalist group called Protect the Inlet.

"British Columbians demanding real climate action are gathering outside the Opus Hotel in Downtown Vancouver where Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is holding a fundraiser... They will be accompanied by a Jumbotron that will follow Trudeau to his evening media event. Crowdfunded by Leadnow and SumOfUs members, the Jumbotron will display a message reading: ‘Trudeau, No Pipelines in a Climate Emergency’.

Oh? A climate emergency? These people are tailing Trudeau in a diesel guzzling E-450 van that chugs fuel like Liz May chugs Nyquil, and bragging about running up the kilometers without an ounce of self-awareness.

Their Trudeau hunter boogie van gets 2.97 kms to the litre.

I might take these people more seriously about their so-called emergency if they start acting like there is an actual emergency.

Just kidding. No, I won't.

In my lifetime the natural fluctuations in the climate of the earth have been called climate cooling then climate warming and now they are calling it a climate emergency. Have any of these people ever looked at the documented swings captured in paint by the great masters over the centuries. If you want proof of past climate swings before large populations or carbon footprint, go to a large art museum. They used to skate on the Thames and how do they think Greenland got its name? Hippies listen up, you are being played.

If they were serious they would be moving that billboard with a peddle bike. The E450 Van proves that they don’t even believe their own lie.

This just shows that they have no REAL alternative to fossil fuels,pure and simple. If they had an alternative they would use it.

2.5 L/100Km?

Elizabeth May; another one who’ll set up her husband in her office and pay him a hefty salary.

The more precise and meaningfull measure of a vehicules “carbon footprint” is not (contrary to common misconception) the distance driven per measured amount of fuel…but rather how cleanly the fuel burns in a given distance….

For example…my Jewish friend who is just like Myles McInnis…loves to needle me …(this is called Jewish acupuncture)…about the Jeep Wrangler I drive.

Now my friend also happens to be a big fan of British Leyland vehicules and is the proud owner of a Morris Garage (MG) sports car that he has owned for 52 years…no kidding.

If I happened to own a British Leyland Defender instead…he would think that is cool…but my well engineered (by Daimler) 2011 70th anniversary of the most persistantly loved vehicule in the world has a carbon footprint (combined CO2 and carbon monoxide) of 200gm per km….the Defender is rated at 280gm per km .

My Jeep meets contempory emission standards…neither his MG sports car nor his 25 year old Volvo do…but they are “grandfathered”….and no vehicule on the island of Cuba (where he loves to spend the winter) including the new Chinese vehicules which only the privilaged can afford…does.

Such is the nature of lefteous indignation.

If these ‘Wing Nuts’ really want to reduce Carbon, they should stop exhaling. When you think of the number of Global Warming freaks that are out there, it would probably work…No Carbon, no idiots.

Well, I despise dizzy Lizzie to the core, but that is a nice ride.

The environitwits are always “do as we tell you, not as we do” hypocrites.

The first enviroweenie that uses no oil and gas or any products made from it whatsoever, then and only then will I listen to his/her preaching.

Now dizzy Lizzies ride does oh so much better at a whopping 23.5 litres per 100km (sarcasm). And to think that my whip is creeping into the mid to high 14L range and i’m pissed about it. Time for a little tune up.

7 miles per Imperial gallon is about is about 40.4 litres per 100 kilometers.
Brutal gas mileage to say the least, but more proof of the extreme hypocrisy of the climate zealots.
commented 2019-05-23 18:28:01 -0400
Sorry Sheila….2.5 litres per 100 kilometers is outstanding, almost unbelievable gas mileage.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Yet, they probably could have mounted a big screen TV in a people powered rickshaw, if they really wanted to be consistent.
