Canada Lagging Behind On Climate Change

The Climate Models have failed.  Temperature has never been linked to CO2 and now its impossible to ignore.  Other countries have taken steps away from the warmist cult but Canada is lagging behind.

China, home of the lake of toxic poison and slave labour camps, has collapsed the climate talks in Poland.  In a cynical sabotage move the worlds leading polluter led the gullible poorer nations on a walkout of Climate talks.  They are all back in the Climate talks again of course.  Once they realised that "Rich" nations are actually negative rich, or rich in nothing but debt, they all came back in hopes the negative rich nations would be even more gullible.

This comes after Poland fired the chair of climate chatter fest for not being Supportive enough of Fracking.  Poland has asserted its sovereignty and independence by advocating coal and shale gas exploration.  Energy independence is political independence for Poland who is threatened by Russia.  The energy bully can force obedience from Poland by withholding gas exports.  Fracking is very good news for Poland and its heartening to see a country standing up for itself both to the former soviet masters and the creeping fingers of the UN itself.

Elsewhere in the world Australia's parliament has voted to repeal its Carbon Tax.  Tony Abbott was given a mandate by the good and sensible Australian people to abolish the punishing green tithe.  Canadian Voters did the same when they rejected the Liberal "Green Shift" during the 2008 election.  Unfortunately Justin Trudeau's Liberals quietly want to try the insanity again.

While there are two provinces who already have irrational carbon taxes in Canada, there is some good news.  Parliamentary Secretary and rising star Paul Calandra had this to say about Australia's bold move:
“Canada applauds the decision by Prime Minister Abbott to introduce legislation to repeal Australia’s carbon tax. The Australian Prime Minister’s decision will be noticed around the world and sends an important message.
“Our government knows that carbon taxes raise the price of everything, including gas, groceries, and electricity. Prime Minister Abbott has said that, in Australia, the repeal of the carbon tax will reduce the average household’s cost of living by (in Australian dollars) $550 a year, take $200 off household power bills and $70 off gas bills.
“Our government has reduced greenhouse gas emissions while protecting and creating Canadians jobs – greenhouse gas emissions are down since 2006, and we’ve created 1 million net new jobs since the recession – and we have done this without penalising Canadian families with a carbon tax.”
The Liberal government in Ontario has lost its mind in tandem with the federal branch.  They have invited the Goreacle to help lie to Ontarians about her government's green lunacy.  Al Gore's visit will assuredly bring along the "Gore Effect."  There are as many peer reviewed papers on the Gore effect as there are linking large storms to CO2.  Rob Ford had better have the Army on speed dial because everything Gore touches turns white and fluffy.  It wasn't all bad though.  People hurt by Ontario's wind power scheme are protesting the Premier.  You can see why the Media Party only wants to talk about the Senate.

Paul Calandra's message to Australia is also one of hope for Canada.  This is an important step forward, but we need to do more on Climate Change.  Parliament should enact laws that prohibit the taxation of molecules essential to life.  Only then can we put this destructive tax ploy behind us.  Only then can Canadians breath easily that citizens and prosperity come first.

We can disagree about policy positions. But we shouldn't be disagreeing on basic facts that have been known for over a century (and constantly confirmed over the last 100+ years).

You write: "Temperature has never been linked to CO2 and now its impossible to ignore."

That's simply not true. Temperature has been linked to CO2 over and over again. To claim that more CO2 in an atmosphere DOESN'T lead to an increase in temperature (all other things being equal) is simply false.

It's at times like this that I wish I had more of a scientific background and my own private laboratory. I'm sure with those resources I could convince you of that one basic fact at least...

I think the Feds get it. Now, if we could only get our premiers up to speed.

1152: By "temperature" I mean Global Average Temperature which you should have inferred from the subject. You cannot put an earth atmosphere into a lab and filling a tube with millions of times the concentration of CO2 into it will prove exactly nothing. We've had this argument before in fact. I gave you peer reviewed articles showing CO2 and temperature wildly varying independently of each other. It was independent in the past and it is independent now. Was the Roman Warm period the result of all the camp fires?

Jan: probably not. Its the people who need to get up to speed. Until they figure it out we are headed for an Obamacare style WTF moment one of these days.

I assumed you meant "Global Average Temperature". And you are right that a bell jar isn't the same thing as our atmosphere. But the fact remains that CO2 concentrations are linked with temperatures. That's a well established fact. It's true you can find periods with higher CO2 and lower temperatures. But that doesn't mean I'm wrong. It just means that there are many different things that affect temperature. (Ocean currents, the position of the continents, solar activity, the earth's tilt, etc).


And... now that you mention it this debate does sound familiar. Do you recall the post where we discussed this? I'd like to take another look at the article you mentioned...
