Trudeau's carbon tax policy is irrelevant

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, and Ian Lee, Associate Professor at the Sprott School of Business, discussed the effectiveness of Justin Trudeau's carbon tax policy.

Not only will the carbon tax render Canadian industry uncompetitive, it won't even have a significant impact on global greenhouse gas emissions!

WATCH our video to see why the economic activity of the United States and China will negate the results of Trudeau's carbon tax.

Government will try to tax anything.

The climate has changed, but there will not be any catastrophic consequences. A changing climate is natural, and human activity has a minimal effect.

Robert Hegwill, in the leftist mind facts cease being facts after some unspecified time that suits them.

What I don’t like is foreign nationals from other countries with opposing cultures making law in my country and when we don’t like what they do we’re called racist and bigot’s… Perhaps it’s time for a physical purge.!!

Anyone with a working brain cell knows that the Carbon Tax is just another cash grab to pay for “irregulars” and the 40 odd vacations per year for TruGrope…..

It seems to me that stupid little Frenchman is screwing Canada on any subject you care to name.

That page is nearly 20 years old and understates CO2 by about 45ppm due to its obsolescence, it’s 412 now not 368.

Human additions are about a third of total atmospheric carbon, carbon’s about a fifth of total GHG effect, meaning we’re responsible for about a 7% increase in radiative forcing. The basal greenhouse is about 20 degrees, so that means about a degree and a half of warming, close to what’s actually seen.

That is simply not true, even the IPCC own expert reviewers told them it BS. CO2 rolls over in the atmosphere about every five years, and the level of CO2 in the atmosphere is controlled by the oceans, not man.

Carbon cycle modelling and

the residence time of natural and

anthropogenic atmospheric CO2:

on the construction of the

“Greenhouse Effect Global Warming” dogma.

Jusst because it is twenty years old dose not make it any the less correct. You have just been taken in by the Liberals so called scientific BS team who are full of Crap and produce a lot of hot air.

I seem to have installed the wrong url on my last comment.

About 97% of CO2 isn’t even caused by man. So it really doesn’t matter what anyone else does.
