EXCLUSIVE: Docs expose “sheer stupidity” of “Santa is a climate refugee” post

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show


Policy Horizons Canada is a government agency that describes itself as a foresight and knowledge organization within the federal public service that anticipates emerging policy challenges and opportunities in a rapidly changing and complex world.

But they can’t be that good because Policy Horizons never foresaw how they might anger the public with a post on their official website claiming Santa was now a climate refugee taking solace at the South Pole.

The post blamed rising global temperatures, rapidly melting arctic ice, and growing human operations in the North that led Santa to sign an agreement with the International community to relocate his village to operate in the South Pole.

The stupidity of this post made international news - it was even on Fox News.

We filed an access to information request because we wanted to know how this crazy post came to be. In response, we received over 60 pages of pure gold!

Today I’ll share the emails exchanged between bureaucrats while planning the post, along with the Canadian public’s reaction in emails sent to the agency.

The cluelessness of the bureaucrats who didn’t anticipate how poorly their post would be received, and the response from Canadians, is an early Christmas present from me to you.

Re Santa being a religious figure… Well, certainly was to begin with… He’s the Christmas season figure based on the history of St. Nicholas who was Bishop of Myra from 270 A.D.to 343 A.D. in Asia Minor.. Of Greek nationality he became the patron saint of children after his death… Saint Nicholas morphed into Sinterklass in Dutch speaking Europe and eventually into Santa Klaus… The religious component was somewhat taken out of this icon when Coca-Cola, I believe in the 1930s, turned him into the fat jolly man dressed in red and white now associated more with gift sales than anything else…

Nothing to do with climate. Santa is not approved of by the Death Cult, is nearer to the mark.

The lunatic climate alarmists are really starting to run into trouble trying to keep timelines in believable order. It is interesting that in the late 1950s (pre Al Gore the eco whore) much of the Arctic was open waters. Well documented with ample pictures, you would have thought CO2 levels would have been off the charts….but no. Amazingly in the aftermath there have been periods of lots of Arctic ice….and periods of not so much. (nature’s cycles maybe?) This is not the first time a stupid idea about the melting Arctic has surfaced from the bowels of the lobotomised left. I believe it was 2006? when St. Suzuki made his Santa debut where he was strutting around at the North Pole in his rubber boots knee deep in water, creating a gem of a scare flic to punish our kids with. Although CBC deleted the propaganda clip I’m sure an astute patriot could dig it up somewhere. With this newest dive into stupidity maybe the ultimate plan was to relocate Santa Suzuki where there seems to be a record ice pack. Apparently CO2 only affects the northern hemisphere causing severe melt. Are you kidding me libtards? Interestingly the stooge who will be receiving that honorary degree at the UofA was enlisted a couple of years by K Wynne to give a rabble rousing fear inducing lecture to a bunch of Ontario 8 year olds about the dire state of the climate. Full on indoctrination. I think Climate Barbie was in class that day…she seems about 10 now…the lecture worked on her. That would be a good video to look up as well…it shows just how scumbag Suzuki operates. McKenna is an ignoramus.

I’m not sure what all you said there but it sounds like I stand corrected… LOL

“Andrew… I don’t think Santa is a religious icon… LOL

You err on that front Flat earth. “Religion” and all its paraphernalia is not just Christianity, Judaism, etc. but it is also a state of action and mind as well. Atheists have made a religion out of anti-religious arguments, the stores/manufacturers have made a religion out of selling specific goods and services for specific acknowledged calendar holidays. The leftards have made a profitable (through taxation) religion out of global cooling (70s) then it was morphed into global warming (80s -90s) then morphed into climate change (present).

Funny how the left-tarded will use a religious icon when it suits their wealth redistribution scams.

https://wattsupwiththat.com/2018/04/19/arctic-ice-like-youve-not-seen-it-before/ Holes in the arctic sea ice were recorded even during very cold periods. This is nothing new. https://wattsupwiththat.com/2014/09/04/1960s-satellite-imagery-of-polar-ice-discovers-enormous-holes-in-the-sea-ice/

I’m wondering where Santa went during the record low arctic sea ice extent recorded in 1974? Alarmist like to claim the satellite record started in 1979, it actually goes back to the 60’s. They ignore this data because it destroys their narrative about mann made Co2.

“Arctic ice propaganda at NSIDC depends on graphs like the one below, which cleverly start at peak ice in 1979, and create the deceptive appearance of a linear decrease in ice – intended to fool the reader into believing it is due to CO2 emissions.

But they are hiding the Nimbus 5 microwave satellite data, which goes back to 1972 and was included in the 1990 IPCC report. The Nimbus 5 data completely wrecks their story, because it shows that ice in 1974 was no more extensive than it is today, and that NSIDC cherry-picked 1979 as their start date.

Below is an image from the Nimbus 5 satellite, taken in January 1976 – which shows how detailed the imagery was. NSIDC has no excuse for not using it. It was used in both the IPCC FAR and SAR reports.

Sheila, I can see why you are smiling…great catch!
I read through the packet and it would seem these government flunkies will think better of posting such nonsense again. I’m glad the response was swift…
The Minister of AirMiles was probably very confused as to why this ridiculous concept tanked.

Great digging Sheila.

Social engineering by liberal bureaucrats. Who would have guessed.

Weak signal – Maybe Catherine Mckenna should be relocated to a far off distant corner of the HOC Universe to study the affect climate change has on the inside temperature of a deep dark basement.

Strong signal – McKenna, you’re fired.

Sheila, I liked the transcript pointing out Rebel Media had posted the article on their web site along with links. Nice to know Butts and McKenna pay attention to the Rebel. They actually might learn something.

The elites are just having a damn good laugh about this climate change/global warming hoax now… Their shoving this right up our asses and then in our faces with impunity… and if I didn’t know any better this would be the money that used to import the fifth column to work directly against us.!!

Oh Canada.. RIP.!!
