How big oil helped create “Leave it in the Ground” legislation by another name

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

The website for the annual “Business and Climate Summit” describes the event as a place where “businesses and governments come together to agree on a road map for reaching net zero emissions over the next half-century.”

It’s basically big businesses and our radical green overlords determining the fate of the plebes. Sounds like a real riot!

Well, I found an incredibly revealing video about the conference that was held in London back in 2016, and it happens to be the one at which Tzeporah Berman compared beautiful Fort McMurray to Mordor.

Berman was part of a cozy three person panel that included Suncor Energy CEO, Steve Williams, and as a result, we learned of their long working history together among other shocking revelations about her involvement in drafting Notley’s Climate Leadership Plan in 2015, long before she was appointed to the Alberta government’s Oilsands Advisory Group.

You’ll see clips of Williams listing many of the things he agrees with Berman on, from carbon taxes to stranded assets, and also hear how Notley’s 100 megatonne cap on emissions was designed to kill one in three oil and gas projects.

It was “Leave it In The Ground” legislation by another name.

But back in reality in Alberta, far away from the London conference of do-gooders and hypocrites, thousands of direct and indirect jobs were being lost to the climate leadership plan crafted by this pair and a handful of other faceless oil executives.

In yesterday's Globe and Mail, Williams said Suncor Energy will not approve any more projects or expansions of projects for crude oil production until he has more clarity on pipelines. Williams said there is a question of confidence in Canada.

Williams isn't wrong, but it’s his fault there is no investor confidence in Canada. He spent the better part of four years doing his weird, self-hating Kabuki dance with the likes of Berman, a woman who now claims responsibility for the latest cancelled pipeline Williams complains about.

Canadian families are being hurt while environmentalists and CEOs laugh all the way to the bank.

Steve Williams, a high-priced “useful idiot”.
The over-priced oil industry executives throw up the white flag about man-made, er, people-made, climate change and then whine about the consequences for their companies, but don’t give a damn about the lost jobs for their employees. Shame.

Andrew, a couple of solar panels will not power your house, nor even recharge an electric car within a reasonable amount of time (say a solid week of sunshine at least).

If you have a large bank of panels, a large set of several expensive deep cycle battery for reserve, and severely limited your use of electricity to nothing by some lights, you might be able to survive with just solar panels. Hopefully is does not cloud over (or the sky fill with smoke like it did here doe weeks because of the BC fires) and forget getting any electricity during the night.

Look it up and do the math. Solar panels just cannot provide the electricity needs of those who live in Canada.

They keep talking about Climate Change, like everyone knows what that means. But it can mean so many different things. First it needs to be defined.

In From There to Here I wrote: “Not a skeptic of Climate Change, as long as the Earth has had an atmosphere the climate has changed, sometimes greatly and sometimes very quickly. Nor do I doubt that we humans have had some effect, I am sure we have. The question is how much, and if the effect is overall positive or negative?”
In it I explain what I believe, how I came to believe what I believe and what I believe we should be doing, not surprising that it differs from what is being suggested by the environmentalists.

Maurice Potvin, exactly right. The Interior is nothing like lotus land, (Greater Vancouver.) What a crazy place this resource rich country has found itself in. Unbelievable and disgusting that these oil companies are joining in the fckery. We don’t have these resources to keep them in the ground. We have them to use them, export them and reap the benefits. There is no way doing that contributes in any significant way to climate change. What it does is interfere with the made up new fantasy industry called man made climate change. It is ridiculous. We are being robbed of our livelihoods by these elite dystopians..

Not sure what happened to my link, I will try again:
Shelia, I am sure that all these people really care and are meeting my “Are You a Climate Change Hypocrite? challenge.

Andrew, I suggest you research further…you have no idea how to be a prepper!!!

Careful what you wish for all knowing one, softies like you regressives will be eff ucked.
Refineries have back up systems that run off of……you guessed it…..natural gas.

You will purchase an electric car or use public transport, or you will stay at home. All it will take is two phone calls, Shut down the Hydro Generators and Halt all buses and trains."

Sounds like a good reason to put solar panels on your roof, to charge the electric car. Couple cords of firewood, and you’re set. (if the grid goes down, so do the fuel refineries and gas stations) Oh, and almost completely accidentally carbon neutral.

I’m for western Canadian separation all the way. The one thing standing in the way is my province, BC. There’s an appetite for it in the interior of the province but the left coast is populated by Marxists.

Al Capone would have been proud of these mobsters. Immobilize the people and you will control them.

You will purchase an electric car or use public transport, or you will stay at home. All it will take is two phone calls, Shut down the Hydro Generators and Halt all buses and trains. If this were done in mid winter and everything was shut down for a month, how many people would survive?

NWO, Jihad, Muslim appeasers? Who knows but if the above scenario were to happen it would certainly make the Death Cults job an easy one.

Ask Justin.
