NDP leader Thomas Mulcair has vowed to cut Canada's C02 emissions to half of what they were in 1990, by the year 2030.
So why pick 1990 as a baseline?
As I explain in my video, it all goes back to the Kyoto Protocol. Choosing that year was a trick that let certain countries get off the hook, while forcing others like Canada and the United States to lower their carbon emissions.
(Remember: Carbon dioxide isn't pollution; every life form on earth relies on it to survive.)
What would cutting Canada's emissions in half really look like? Which schoolbuses and fire trucks would Mulcair say we shouldn't use any more? Which farms will be shut down? Which factories? (Has Mulcair he told his union friends about that last part?)
Mulcair's plan will cripple our country without changing the world's temperature one degree.
Because as the UN IPCC itself admits, even if every country in the world obeyed the Kyoto Protocol, including China, it would not change the temperature of the world by 1/100th of one degree, even after 100 years.
These cap and trade schemes are really about deindustrializing the West, and crippling capitalism and progress.
