North Vancouver implemented the use of stickers on gas pumps to deter consumers from buying the product by suggesting it induces climate change. It was a unanimous vote by city council who agree with media and politicians that think we’re all going to die next week from catastrophic climate change.
Unsurprisingly, the group behind the labels, Our Horizon, are part of the Climate Action Network. Other members of CAN include Tides, The Pembina Institute, ForestEthics, Greenpeace and the Sierra Club – all groups that back progressive causes funded by foreign money from Rockefeller and George Soros who attack the Canadian oil and gas industry for their own personal gain.
The stickers have the look and feel of cigarette labels, which compare filling up your gas tank to smoking cigarettes. It’s obscure and doesn’t exactly say that gassing up your car will surely lead to horrible things, but it does suggest as much.
“Use of this fuel product contributes to climate change which may cause drought and famine.”
Note the use of the word “may.” According to other versions, you also “may” be making kids sick, killing off land animals and marine life.
Until there’s convincing universal evidence that humans are causing climate change, the government can keep their labels and keep their hands out of my pockets by way of carbon pricing.
Why is the government getting involved in the choices people make? If people want to fill their gas tanks and drive to their heart’s content, so be it.
Just like it’s a choice for people to smoke cigarettes, it’s a choice to fill up your gas tank, but in this case unlike cigarettes, fossil fuels have inarguably benefitted the human race by increasing our quality of life.
