Irony alert: Vancouver’s “global warming Mayor” caught unprepared for cold winter weather

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

I don’t think there’s a local politician anywhere in Canada or the US that has taken such a hardline approach to involving the potential threat of manmade global warming into his policies than Vancouver’s global warming Mayor Gregor Robertson

We’ve had bike lanes rammed down our throats and now have underused bike sharing stations which take away dozens of parking spots, we have a plan to ban natural gas usage in the city by 2050, and now we’re spending hundreds of thousands if not millions studying and preparing plans for what may or not be several centimetres of sea level rising.

Ironically, both the Mayor and his Vision Vancouver team at city hall have been unable to deal with the occasional heavy snowfall we experience in this city.

So while it doesn’t snow heavily every winter in Vancouver, we usually have one or two days of snow which are then washed away or melted within a couple of days, but it seems any amount of snow, puts the city in peril.

Watch as I share what happened this winter when a big storm hit the Lower Mainland of BC and the city was unprepared to deal with it, especially when the temperature remained below freezing allowing the snow to stick around longer than usual.

All of this happened while Mayor Robertson was on vacation, which he didn’t cut short despite calls for him to return home.

And guess what? As you’ll see from my report, this isn’t the first time the Mayor underestimated a Canadian winter while he was vacationing in a sunnier clime!

Mayor Robertson should stop talking about global warming and the “threats” it may or may not pose to our city and instead, actually deal with real weather conditions in winter and spend our tax dollars properly for once?

So, they are going to end the use of “FOSSIL FUELS”, LOL. You mean fuels derived from dead plants and animal life, like dinosaurs (fossils) right? Animal and plant life that thrived millions of years ago, when it was much WARMER, right? Oh shit, what’s wrong with this picture?
I am sorry this “Global Warming”, “Climate Change” hoax is so full of BS that I am flabbergasted by the numbers of DELUSIONAL people sucked in by this CON JOB. And C’mon, a “CARBON LEVY” – WTF, – please define CARBON and why it needs to be taxed………………..

Some very smart people here on the Rebel. I wont go over the same points but here is a new one.
Recently in Calgary we have had what are known as Frost quakes or ice quakes. They are caused by water in the soil freezing and expanding. Newly constructed areas receive a lot of rain /snow when the ground is open and then back filled. The long cold snap causes frost quakes. The quakes almost never result in any damage. The outcry was funny with people asking how these quakes could be prevented.
The same way you prevent earth quakes YOU CAN,T. These have also been around for a very very long time.
global cooling?

If the GVA can’t cope with several cm of snow, how in the world will they deal with a major earthquake? This pretty well shows a lack of any foresight or leadership, as they have only their “watermelon” virtue signalling to fall back on.

We have the smoking gun. Dailymail.com has the whole sordid story of Thomas Karl, former Director of the NOAA, who delibrately manipulated data to deny the pause in global warming since 1998. This is big. Nothing but crickets from the MSM.

Given the previous, I would also predict that in the next 10 years or so:- The demand for oil and natural gas will make B.C., Alberta, and Saskatchewan rich… Ontario will be forced into a major reversion to more traditional hydro-electric production while wind farms turn to rust…. New Brunswick and Nova Scotia will be forced into doing serious fracking on their turf… Both will also get very serious about tidal generated power from the Bay of Fundy… NFLD/Labrador will engage in more offshore drilling and start their hydro customers to pay “through the nose” … PEI will become a virtual ghost town as hydro electric costs soar… And Quebec’s bluff will be called as they will not only have to start on many new hydro electric projects but also shale oil fracking… The Yukon and The Territories will be drilling like mad and building pipelines to Alaska… So, tuck that away for future debate, although I may not be around by then…

The real beauty of this global ruse is that REALITY WILL PREVAIL sooner than later… The scam will be over in the next few years thanks to Trump firing a lot of the scammers in the EPA and NOAA… In the meantime, if you really want to know what’s going on I would suggest visiting:-http://www.climatedepot.com/2016/10/28/russian-scientist-the-new-little-ice-age-has-started/
And, as colder winters do set in, Boy Blunder’s carbon tax will produce the Canadian version of the “storming of the Bastille”… Ditto in Alberta and Ontario…

Thanks Rick. Too busy lining up summer innovation project. Top Secret: grass that cuts itself.

Data manipulation is a valid tool for modelling when used ethically. Think of a storm event that straddles adjacent measure periods boosting each # but dampening the scale of actual event. Running storm profile in isolation reflects the event impact on watershed w/o changing data. What the ICCP & Co do is anti-science deception.

CHRIS FAIRLEY commented: “We need to have universal government funded, FREE, sunscreen, air conditioning & tropical vacations. Canoes every 100m on the coast to coast to coast. Consult that Liberals.”

And don’t forget the “canoe sheds”!

Rick, you are probably right, I just like to be a positive kind of guy.

ROBERT MCCLELLAND commented: "
It is going to take a long, long, long time for the man made global warming cult to start to realize just how wrong they are."

Nah, not going to happen. It is a lefty obsession that the regressives will never give up! As for the cold and snow…….everyone knows it is the evil Harper and his Conservative minions responsible…..right?

Mauder Millenium, also known as mini ice age which any “Real” scientist will tell you is the phase we are entering into. But, oh wait! (shock, gasp!), that goes against the narrative the politicians like Trudope and others are using as an excuse to tax the working stiff out of more of their hard earned incomes.
commented 2017-02-05 16:05:53 -0500
Breitbart reports that NOAA whistleblower Professor John Bates has produced "irrefutable evidence that an NOAA study denying the pause in global warming since 1998 was based on false and misleading data.
Juuunnnniiiooorrr! You have a lot of splainin to do!
commented 2017-02-05 15:10:51 -0500
Dale Warren—agreed, we don’t want Vancouver to get as cold as Regina, although I enjoyed living in Regina for 3 years.
I believe I’ve figured out the solution for Vancouver’s temperature as 7% Carbon tax makes it too cold; while 3.5 % tax would make it perfect and also eliminate the snow.
commented 2017-02-05 15:03:04 -0500
I guess all the morons in Vancouver that keep this Gore/Suzuki wanna-be in power are swearing at him now. I hope so. The mayor and everyone at city hall should read Dale warren’s comments below and Notley, and Justin-competent and Wynnie the freak and Barbie doll McKenna……….. and so many others should admit how stupid they are; but I think vanity will prevail.
commented 2017-02-05 14:47:33 -0500
Don’t worry Vancouver, I believe the boy blunder now contends that if you pay the carbon tax the snow will shovel itself.

A good book for Andrew to read would be Taken by Storm by Chris Essex and Ross Mckitrick.

NASA / NOAA Climate Data Is Fake Data
NOAA shows the Earth red hot in December, with record heat in central Africa.
https://realclimatescience.com/2017/02/nasa-noaa-climate-data-is-fake-data/
The map above is fake. NOAA has almost no temperature data from Africa, and none from central Africa. They simply made up the record temperatures.
Satellites show that NOAA’s” record hot regions in Africa were actually close to normal.
NASA and NOAA are engaged in the biggest fraud in science history, and this needs to end now that criminals are no longer in control of our government. Under the Trump administration, government employees stand to make huge amounts of money by whistleblowing fraud. Contact Kent Clizbe for details.

@ Andrew . . . “We are making progress. At least now, most will admit that the earth is actually warming, even if they’re reluctant to discuss all potential causes. That will come in time.” ? ? ?

Progress . . . lol Andrew the earth has been warming since the Last Ice Age . . . except of course when it is NOT . . . like the last 18 years. All the graphs you have been staring at deal in 1/100th of degrees . . . if the Temp was rounded off to the closest Degree . . . it would be a FLAT LINE !

There is NO Science Andrew . . . just scare . . . We know that all the knowledge about the physical world comes from experiments that can be validated and not from calculations that cannot be validated. And yet, everything about man-made global warming is about calculations and NOTHING about measurements.

The Vancouver Mayor is a far-left Loon . . . but the folks of Vancouver luv him, Vancouver has a history of lunacy . . . like the Atomic Bomb ban back in the 70s . . . must have worked they have not been hit . . . yet!
Where else but Vancouver would seniors and other line up with their cans for Free Salt? Outside for hours in minus temperatures for a couple of cups of free salt? More Lunacy !
But . . . being that the Carbon Tax in BC is so successful, coldest winter in many years . . . is it time to take it off or do we keep going till we are like Regina?

ronj joseph lol agree but I didn’t vote for nenshi he is a money wasting fool,
commented 2017-02-05 11:44:24 -0500
The idiot Gregor believes that as soon as BC’s 7% Carbon tax came in, it started to snow in Vancouver.
Being from BC, I hate this man ’s policies with a passion; however I always wonder how the fools in Calgary can justify criticising Robinson when they keep voting in another goof called Nenshi, no doubt among the top ten Tax & Spend Morons in Canada?

The point is with, CO2 Carbon dioxide , and sadly logic is undeniable, even if we all shut down evil manufacturing of utilities and other unnecessary things , the human on earth, which are still part of the ecosystem, will need resources to continue living , eat, crap, stay warm in winter, we also could live in caverns , still we will produce roughly 75% of the CO2 we are responsible of creating, knowing that the total human activities create 20% of the total CO2 emissions , the major part coming from the ocean,

Hope you understand that this Carbon tax and hysteria surrounding CO2 is just a giant hoax created by politicos to raise new taxes money, and destroy capitalism, to really affect the human factor in the equation would be to reduce earth’s population by 80% , who wants to disappear first? and even then our places will be probably filled by animals , that produce also CO2 this friendly gas responsible for the growth of all the plants and flora on earth, . any decent person with some logic knows that AGW is a money grab , that it will have hardly any effect on the temperature , but if it was not CO2 , the eco-anarchists would find another evil results of human activity to fight against, they need it , for them it is a matter of survival , without a cause they are on welfare.

If you read my post of 13 hrs ago it should read 700 million tons of hydrogen or 700,000,000 tons of hydrogen. No intent to mislead but a resolve to proof read. The video from Nasa is available on you tube called 10 facts or 10 fun facts about the sun. It’s only a few minutes long makes my point.

I’m of the “the sun determines everything” school on climate ever since I got my amateur radio license back in 1989, learned about hourly A and K index propagation forecasts, and read up on the Maunder Minimum i.e “little ice age” related to sun spot activity… Anybody who blows farts your way about “global warming”, and doesn’t acknowledge the 11.2 and 200 year solar cycles is either a fool, a charlatan, a government grant dependant “scientist”, a Gore class politician, or all four… Oh; and maybe the Prime Minister of Canada nowadays?…

Andrew, you seem to be very educated about climate science as you describe your concerns about global warming. I live in in southern Ontario. What is the ideal temperature I should expect? I do not want all these efforts to control the climate to reduce the temperatures too low. Where I am sitting now used to be covered by about three kilometres of ice.
