I need to applaud Danielle Smith for not taking a climate change position even in the middle of a hostile CBC audience. She stood her ground in front of a petulant and rude CBC crowd.
That is leadership my friends. That is the kind of person I will fight for.
Not even Stephen Harper has the guts to say what Danielle Smith said recently.
"We've been watching the debate in the scientific community and there is still a debate in the scientific community," -Danielle Smith, on air, on the CBC, in front of hostile insecure crowd.
She is consistent with what she said a few days earlier: “The science isn’t settled and we need to continue to monitor the debate. In the
meantime, we need to support consumers in making the transition to cleaner
'Heretic! Apostate! Seize the unbeliever! Turn her into greenhouse gasses!' You know the drill.
She didn't even say she doesn't believe in Climate Change. She reserves judgement. She isn't the expert. A political debate is not the time or place to discuss the failure of climate science. The science isn't settled. Too bad.
She didn't get bogged down like some GOP candidates. She is a Hero. You have to appreciate what a difficult thing it is to stand outside the established belief system when you are a politician. I can't think of one more difficult. She made the right choice. She didn't back down and she didn't take the bait. Full marks. Great respect for Danielle Smith.
Even warmists say Alberta's Energy isn't a problem for their climate change religion. Then you have the fact that climate change has failed to materialize. None of the scare stories have come true. Climate change today has been walked back a full 2/3rds from what the alarmists were predicting. -But we still have the calls for restricting the economy and human freedom in the most ridiculous and pointless ways.
Believe what you want. It's your mind. You have the right to fool yourself about the climate. But you can know in your heart the Danielle Smith and the Wildrose Party will not be throwing your money at green boondoggles and pointless schemes. You can take that to the bank.
I also have to congratulate the many Wildrose supporters in the crowd. You did us proud as well. You did not behave like the warmist babies when you tell them there is no green Santa. If I had manners like the warmists it would have been one uninterrupted stream of profanity whenever Redford opened her mouth. We aren't like that. We are good respectful people.
Bravo Mrs. Smith.
Keep up the great work.
