If you want to read something funny about bad people, here it is. Climate activist and hero Greta Thunberg is in Calgary and on her way to Edmonton for a climate strike on Friday, and the Premier is flipping out. He’s one of the hypothetical middle age white guys threatened by a 16 year old girl bearing science data and a powerful message.
What’s that mean? You’ve heard the Con Premiers like Ford and Moe and Kenney are all threatening Trudeau, saying if he doesn’t do impossible things for the oil industry (because it’s rightfully dying), he’s threatening national unity because the Con Premiers will try to break away from Canada to have their own Petrostate?
It’s all part of the Conservative Party of Canada’s effort to exceed election spending limits. Kenney in Alberta is throwing $30,000,000 away on an “energy war” room to target environmentalists and other sane people who care about our planet. Basically it’s a way to funnel more money to crackpot media like Rebel, and climate change denial media like POStmedia. Their theory seems to be that if they can spend provincially, as a government, their ads indirectly supporting Scheer will translate into votes for him without running up the finite election spending limit federal parties face.
Oil and Gas don’t clean up their messes, we the Canadian citizen do.
Unrelated, the Bare Naked Ladies song $1000000 mentions John Merrick.
“I’d buy you John Merrick’s remains”
Why did they suggest buying the skeleton for a million dollars? The King of Pop had something to do with that.
Our best hope for survival is ‘too drastic‘. “The climate system is not stopping you [hitting the Paris talks target], global society is stopping you.”
That’s why the Alberta Premier gets away with saying the right thing here, but does the exact opposite in practice. $23M spent badmouthing BC environmentalists and scientists who want an end to new pipelines.
“When insects disappear, so do other animals. The population of one dazzling green bird that eats almost nothing but insects, the Puerto Rican tody, dropped by 90%.”

It’s repulsive that
@YourAlberta Government is paying for this propaganda promoted tweet https://twitter.com/KeepCanWorking/status/996165558822465545 … They sound like a Trudeau Liberal, ‘The money from destroying the earth from selling oil and gas will pay for renewable energy transitions on the dead Earth…’
