CBC Picks Up Attack On Environment

This isn’t the first time I’ve written about Krause and her decade long Astroturf campaign against NGOs doing environmental work in Canada.

Classic dirty tricks.
“If Krause were seeking a fair answer, she’d quickly learn that both investment dollars and philanthropic dollars cross borders all the time. There isn’t anything special or surprising about environmental groups receiving funding from U.S. foundations that share their goals — especially when the increasingly global nature of environmental challenges, particularly climate change, is taken into consideration.”

P.S. Someone in 2013 was getting documents from CBC:
A-2013-00115 “Provide copies of all documents, including e-mails, memos, media lines, analysis, reports, contracts, correspondence, etc. regarding the Tides Foundation or Tides Canada since January 1, 2013. Clarification Jan. 24/14 Please limit search to the English news networks in Toronto, Ottawa, B.C. and Alberta.”

Skunk In The Stinky FP

The FP published a ridiculous op-ed by Brad Wall.
business.financialpost .com/opinion/ brad-wall-canada-could-impact-emissions-were-ottawa-not-so-obsessed-with-carbon-taxes

“So, in Paris we were — without intention — a few prairie skunks at this low-carbon garden party.”

His intention was to stink. Wall has remained a skunk throughout his public life.

Remember a decade ago when he promised a Green Tech Fund to develop technologies to reduce emissions, instead of a price on carbon pollution? No? Perhaps because he never delivered it. His sole mission, that he shares with the odious (climate change Denial org) Heritage Foundation when he delivers his speeches in the USA, is to delay climate action.

I know most people reading the Financial Flop Post won’t agree with me, but his ideas are terrible, and are causing global damage.

The reason CCS is even close to making economic sense from his perspective is because it’s for Enhanced Oil Recovery. So the net pollution CCS reduces is offset by some unknown amount of oil burned for every unit of carbon dioxide re-sequestered underground.

Accepting, Avoiding, and Talking About Collapse

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.

We’re undergoing a collapse of insects and life support systems of our planet. There’s one good newspaper in Canada talking about this news, and drawing the connections.

“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%.”

-A woman who has heard Conservative lies and believed them said he should be hung. He still answered her 3 hoaxes.
-A student who wanted to pin him down on his criticism of boom-bust towns and their infamous abuse of women, when apparently she finds the oil industry and all the people around it entirely delightful.
-A woman expressing solidarity with First Nations opposed to pipelines that will poison their land, water, and air, and put the PM in his place for dodging answering too.

I Want a Home Without Fossil Gas

For at least 2 years I’ve said I’d like to build a home that doesn’t have a furnace, and doesn’t have natural gas. There are Passive Houses all over Canada. It was a technology invented in Regina 40 years ago, and rediscovered and developed by the Germans. You can order a home from Europe, or use a Saskatchewan builder instead.

New Brunswick

PEI example is interesting and well documented for you.

SaskPotty Cave Men Are Liars

It’s frustrating having cave men deciding your province’s future. If only they’d developed leaderships skills aside from being liars masterful enough to fool their voters.

Convert Canada’s Fleet to EV

There’s no reason why Canada can’t set a 100% electric personal vehicle goal today. Please sign this petition to tell our heel dragging Liberal government to get on it. There are huge benefits to EVs over gas burners, with cleaner air as only one of the perks. They save owners lots of money too over complicated combustion engine vehicles.

I hope Saskatchewan beats Manitoba in signature count. Right now, we’re neck and neck with them.
