Why keep wasting billions -- when global warming STOPPED in 1998?

Brian LilleyArchive

Justin Trudeau, our illustrious prime minister, will host a meeting of premiers this week to push for a national price on carbon to fight climate change.

But in light of new evidence that global warming has stopped, isn't it time to cut out all the climate spending?

The Suzuki Foundation link is the funniest. God knows the number of anthropogenic climate change groupies is shrinking. Maybe you can find a few converts here Dbee. Its a public service you do, making sure the other side of the story gets out there. Its so rarely in view.

I really have to wonder how many people actuaally read the article that
Brian linked to? I also have to wonder if Brian actually read the article.

Yep. Spot on Philip.

Actually, while the planet has been continually but inconsistently warming since the last ice age there never was any anthroprogenic global warming. The alleged “pause” is actually just an excuse for flawed and fraudulent science

“Why keep wasting billions — when global warming STOPPED in 1998?”

Because money is siphoned off the top and goes into some peoples pockets.

No doubt in my mind.

Susan Johnston, you are absolutely correct. The ‘industry’ is wasting money and time. We should be addressing the real issues of the ever changing climate, and start preparing for the inevitable cooling cycle which is coming down the turnpike. The climate change industry exists for the benefit of government overreach. Carbon taxes are nothing more than a revenue stream for crooks, and governments. The gig is up. Believers are dropping like flies. Nobody is swallowing the kool- aid anymore, and pretty soon the industry huskters will be thrown out. The only thing that is man made about climate change is the climate change industry. The joke has been on us,

Its been a total farce all along. Now we are at the point where the uber left have sucked up the kool aid and accept it as gospel. They could never think for themselves or they would question why Gore or the like will never debate anyone who challenges their bs because they have no chance of winning the argument. Now we have Peter Pan proposing his Federal carbon plan and Commandant Notley with hers in what used to be Alberta. Supreme Skank Wynn will have hers in place in a year if Ontario can last that long.With Obama (the science is settled) leading the charge and all the enviro lemmings falling in line,Gods intervention might be our only hope, but we must fight on.One question I would like to ask Notley and her Politburo(kindergarten cabinet), is if they are satisfied with the settlement arrived at with Syncrude over the disoriented ducks that landed on one of their ponds. The settlement was in the multi millions$$$$$ .If satisfied then who will be liable for the thousands of birds lost when we do our mass green energy push. It is common knowledge that giant windmills cause massive losses of birds and bats. Large solar farms also cause severe bird loss. Where are all these enviro assholes now!! Not a peep.You can be sure that when the feathers get too deep the cover up will begin. They can follow Obamas lead as they are in full swing down there already. I think Selfie should convene a meeting at the UN . He can invite Wynn, Notley, Grerald(ram his head up his but) Butts, dried up prune John Mccallum,Gore, Obama, Clinton, Fruit Fly and the other clueless bunch, ask Sharpton to join as well.Then we could fire up the bulldozers and push the whole works into the East River. Then we could bring the equipment north of the border and DEMOLISH theCBC. I will operate a bulldozer myself for free because with Notleys help I now have no job!! Maybe she could hire me to make pillows with the mountain of dead bird feathers that we will surely have to deal with. Please hang in there Ezra, Lilley et all. Thank God we have you.

I like your show Brian. I just wish you would challenge all those socialists who voted for the Liberals to come on your show and ask them what they think of all the carbon taxes they will be paying and how that is going to make any difference in climate change. I keep hearing from everyone who are against these taxes but other than the left wing politicians and the media I haven’t been able to find anyone who agrees with this and who will admit they voted for these fools. No matter how much we bitch and complain about this they were voted in on this mandate and they are going to go ahead with this tax. The only way anything is going to change is when the economy is ruined and everyone is so fed up paying all these taxes that they vote these bums out. I just hope and pray that Brad Wall changes his mind, runs for the federal Conservatives and wins the next election so that we can get rid of all these taxes and bring some sanity back to our country.

Just saw a CBC poll that has Trudeau and the Liberals up in every province. And the Prosperity Group’s conference in Vancouver on the new Canadian economic and environmental paradigm (code for a fossil free future), with Trudeau’s blessing and support. DeCrapio’s political rants on Global Warming during the Oscars, provincial government’s proposed carbon tax and “Clap and Trade” initiatives, academia’s intolerance with the conservative viewpoint and right to free speech, and the BC Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the University of Victoria’s ban on Pro Life group’s right to meet and speak on campus – and on and on it goes.

Trudeau will be PM for at least 4 terms unless the Conservatives start playing hardball with the Liberals – which they won’t. The Cons will elect a non Quebecer, a non bilingual idiot, for its leader and be out in the wilderness for a very, very long time. The Liberals know only too well in today’s political climate that the PM in this country has to hail from Quebec and cater to the millennial generation, which feeds itself on emotion and not scientific fact or economic realities. The majority of progressive voters in this country are unsophisticated in this respect about the real issues affecting this country. Dion, as a leader from Quebec, was an anomaly and was still under the negative influences of ADSCAM, hence the “Orange Crush” in Quebec in 2011.

We are so doomed. We cannot do anything about this because of the Liberal Party’s national 21st century Family Compact: Government, Judiciary, Media, Academia and Cultural – all left wing progressives So get used to it Canadians. The millennial and progressive age is well upon us and will be for a long, long time. I have given up caring about this so my plan now is to try and leverage the progressive madness for my own personal financial gain and my family’s well being.

I was looking for articals to find out the financial impact of the belief in Climate change and found this one from August 2011:

It’s an intersting artical and there were, as you can imagine, comments on both sides. This one in particular, by a poster named plazaeme, in reply to the position that 98% of scientists agree global warming is man made:

The stupidity of the 98% argument.
Not many years ago all (100%) of de medicine doctors knew for sure gastritis was caused by stress, smoking, drinking, and so on. More than 20 years ago, two Australians demonstrated it was a bacterium, but they had no chance to communicate their findings in the scientific literature or congresses.
To know the truth you only needed a very easy and cheap experiment. Checking with any generic antibiotic. I did it myself, some 18 years ago, and I am not a doctor. But I managed to cure my gastritis, forever, many many years before the “consensus” learned how to do it. How about the 98% argument?
Hint: in both cases the money is in not knowing. Mr. Bell’s article show’s it very well for climate change science. And it is very difficult to understand when your money depends on not understanding.

This is where we are now. The money depends on the not understanding.

Many years ago, when I was a young girl, “Give a hoot, Don’t polute” was an advertised movement that appealed to most everyone, to the point where I recall actually going up to adults that threw garbage on the ground and asking them to put it in a can instead, or picking it up mself.

It seems the current campain, that should be about pollution too (which should be addressed) has added the hystaria of doomsday predictions and therefore the need for government intervention. The financial ball started rolling and has been gaining speed ever since.

This may be simplistic but, I feel that rather than arguing about pollution (can’t imagine anyone arguing that it’s good), we’ve been manipulated into “climate change” and now we fight amounst ourselves, lefts vs rights, believers vs deniers, while the billion dollar industry of climate change snowballs and has the benefit of and excuse for over reach by the government which continues to grow. Follow the money…’s dependant on not understanding.

I really believe that as an average Canadian we on the whole have less threat leveled upon us by Islamic terrorists than the threat by the local terrorists like Suzuki, Gore, Trudeau, Nutley, DiCaprio, Wynne, Micheal Mann and all those that believe mankind is capable of controlling the climate. These people NEED to held accountable for the fraudulent scam they are feeding the simple minded – people who are so open minded that their brains have all fallen out and are no longer capable of rational reasoning. The ability to reason that CO2 is an absolute requirement for all plants to grow, and that over the past 50 years the plant foliage has greened up by at least 20% during that time – which totally disparages the Amazon forest depletion.
It is time that humanity rids itself of these fraudsters and holds them accountable!

If I deliberately present false information to a group of investors for the purpose of taking money from them as investment funds, then I stand the chance of going to jail for fraud. How is this “Man Made Climate Change” BS any different when initiated by our provincial and/or federal governments? Reduce to basics, no matter how you slice it, its still fraudulent information being presented as fact to the general population. But this is how the governments make it work. They change their money grabbing scam from “Climate Change” to “Carbon Tax”. In other words, they get the leopard to change its spots, but its still a leopard. And here’s the rub. Its a “Carbon Tax” being presented as the cost of emitting Man Made Co2 into the atmosphere which is touted as being responsible for “Global Warming”. But there is no “Global Warming”. And round and round we go.

Let Trudeau stand up and prove, beyond doubt, that Global Warning is caused by Man. He cannot prove this and he and his cohorts know it.

This is just a fraudulent scam to make money for Liberal Slush Buckets and to help pay for his Muslim Jihadi friends.

Obtaining money by false pretenses is illegal in Canada, therefore Trudeau and the rest of his gang should be arrested.

Trudeau is nothing but a Con Artist and a Traitor to Canada.

The left wing climate change scam is code for destroying capitalist free markets along with the private sector, and government tax and spend.

Dear Diary;
I’m so lucky to have Gerald by my side. He is indeed the wind beneath my wings.
I’d never have thought in a million years that I could get away with reversing, among other things, that citizenship act from the cruel mean spirited way that Stevie put it, and returning it to favour the brave and glorious front-line soldiers of my Muslim chums. But, like a rock, Gerald was there to comfort and assure me that Canadian voters are stupid and have short memories, and in a week or so they’ll have found something else to be angry about and, as always, he’s bang on.
It’s not like this wasn’t important either. Banksy and B.O. told me that propagating Islam throughout my society and institutions, especially the military and security forces such as the RCMP, is one of the key pieces to achieving someone’s new world order plan that I call sunny ways, like for example, along with the weather-changing wealth re-distribution scam, numbing and corrupting the brains of children à la Alfred Kinsey, David Eggen and Ben Levin (easy Omar, it’s okay, this à la means “in the style of”) and rebuking civilized progress to worship the energy gods of wind and sun.
I thought we’d get to sacrifice virgins but my chums want to stick with adulteresses for now. I should get some tee-shirts printed “Because, um, it’s, like, the 7th Century”.

Climate change is like cancer research, if there is a cure they will stop getting money.
commented 2016-03-02 11:07:22 -0500
Most people don’t know about this because the liberals don’t allow the CBC and CTV to report it.
