This past week Prime Minister Trudeau added to his list of ways to destroy Canada and particularly Alberta by announcing his plan to increase the carbon tax to $170/tonne by 2030.
This combined with his Green New Deal and his blocking of pipelines will destroy the oil and gas industries.
I realize that solar and wind generation of electricity has gotten cheaper but it is still unreliable and if you factor in the cost of keeping coal and gas generation on standby to provide reliability, it increases the cost dramatically.
Battery storage may someday help but is expensive and impractical at this time.
All this foolishness to please the United Nations (UN) and those who subscribe to the Paris Accord while Canada produces 1.6 per cent of the world greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Trudeau would destroy Canada’s economy to have no effect, or probably a harmful effect as other countries that do not produce energy as clean as we do will pick up the slack.
It is impossible to list all of Trudeau’s stupid statement’s but one that is at the top of the list is “we must put a price on carbon pollution”.
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is not pollution , calling it so is a lie. CO2 is essential for life and it has been at much higher levels than today.
His incompetence is only matched by Dr. Theresa Tam, chief medical officer and Patty Hajdu, minister of health.
They have all followed the lies told by China and the World Health Organization (WHO).
I am not lining up to get a vaccine that is administered by these three.
Trudeau’s latest kowtowing to China is him pressuring the Canadian military to train the Chinese military, this while they hold the ‘two Michael’s’ hostage while Meng Wanzhou lives in luxury in Vancouver.
This is called consorting with the enemy.
When I see the harm that Trudeau and his colleagues are doing, I cannot understand why every Albertan does not want to separate.
