Is it any wonder when the Premier has people defending our pollution:
If emissions from anywhere matter (they do), Saskatchewan has no excuse for contributing to the problem as if our pollution isn’t a problem because others pollute more in total. It’s like saying you are allowed to pee in the pool without embarrassment, because others pee more in it.
In a news conference in Ottawa, Erin Flanagan, the main author of the report, had some blunt words for Premier Brad Wall and his government.
“Saskatchewan has not made a commitment to phase out coal-fired power,” she said.
In 2016, that amounts to Climate Change Denial, and in short years should be considered a crime.
This isn’t just a problem in Saskatchewan. In Australia, a columnist for a major broadcaster blamed wind power generation for a blackout actually caused by an extreme storm toppling power line towers.
At least he claims he wants to find a balance. All Wall seems to want to do is add fuel to the fire. Economy all the way baby, yee haw!
