The CBC says that global warming could cause volcanoes to explode.
That’s not even fake news. It's fiction.
And it’s embarrassing that anyone would publish that, but it’s extra embarrassing, and troubling, that it would be said on the state broadcaster, to whom we pay $1.5 billion a year in taxpayer money, and who so clearly are in campaign mode for Justin Trudeau’s carbon tax.
That’s really what this is about: Support Trudeau’s carbon tax, or the volcanoes will hurt you.
It was obviously prompted by the spectacular news out of Hawaii that one of their volcanoes is oozing lava again.
But Canada hasn't had had volcanoes for tens of millions of years.
There are a few little “cones” in uninhabited places in the mountains near the B.C. coast, where some small amounts of cinders and ash have percolated out of the earth. Some of them even had baby eruptions — a few centuries ago.
TONIGHT I'll compare the science about volcanoes with the CBC's ridiculous "news" story.
But it goes without saying:
Volcanoes have nothing to do with anything humans are doing on the surface of the earth.
No, the CBC's story is more akin to superstition than science. The ancient Aztecs tried to appease the "volcano god." Muslim clerics declared that the devastating eruption of Krakatoa was "the work of Allah." (PS: Here's the book I recommended — Krakatoa: The Day the World Exploded.)
What's the difference between that and the CBC's global warming superstitions?
The CBC report lies about one "unstable volcano" — meaning a mountain, Mount Meager, in BC, that had... a rock slide. Eight years ago. In the middle of nowhere.
And it will surely guarantee that the CBC gets its $1.5 billion next year from Trudeau.
Can you trust a single word the CBC state broadcaster says, about anything?
