I don't know if this has been posted here or not.

Quote:
Of the 192 countries that signed on in 1997, only the 37 developed countries had to agree to reduce emissions. The undeveloped nations — notably China and India — had no restrictions placed on them. They argued that restrictions on emissions would hold back their economic development.

“Since 1997, the 37 developed countries have reduced CO2 emissions by about 7 per cent, while exempted country emissions rose 130 per cent. And overall global emissions hit a new record in 2018, up two per cent year over year and up 49 per cent since 1997,” according to official figures contained in a report by former Canadian investment bankers who are now investors, Steve Larke and Adam Le Dain. “Driven by good intentions and accelerating energy demand, the world is facing an unintended energy crisis.”

Counterintuitively, Canada must prioritize the building of pipelines to export its oil, with relatively low emissions, and to build natural gas pipelines and dozens of LNG projects on both coasts. This is because every single energy molecule that is exported from Canada to Asia or elsewhere replaces their need to burn dirty coal, or to fuel their vehicles with electricity generated by coal. (This was a platform in the Tory energy policy this election, plus conservation subsidies for consumers.)

I don't understand how a smart country like Canada can do such stupid things like block LNG development.

There are vested interests that don't want to see Canada compete with foreign oil and gas producers.

The Trudeau regime has exempted imported Saudi Arabian oil from it's carbon tax.

The government has made a few modest improvements to the ridiculous power situation. Cancelling unneeded wind and solar contracts will help lower future costs a bit. As well, starting Nov. 1, power bills were amended to make the cost of electricity clearer.

Put a higher carbon tax on foreign oil and lower it for Canadians.

Saudi Arabian oil is exempt from Trudeau's carbon tax. :2r4ml1j_th:

Yes. The Trudeau regime has deliberately handicapped Canadian industry.

Good article by former finance minister Joe Oliver.

Minister of the Environment and Climate Change Jonathan Wilkinson graciously declared “I’m not saying liquid natural gas (LNG) in the future can’t be part of an overall structure” before adding the killer: “but the focus of the climate plan is on reducing our own domestic emissions.”

Follow his self-defeating reasoning: the government will concentrate on achieving its Paris accord commitments even if doing so precludes reducing worldwide emissions. Because in the end the only number that counts is total global emissions, this approach prioritizes bragging rights over a looming threat to humanity. The Liberal scorecard evidently is more important than whether the planet fries.

Building pipelines will combat climate change and enrich the Canadian economy
Adding pipelines would mitigate global warming by reducing the massive use of coal in China and India

They do seem obsessed with lowering Canada's emissions and not the earth's emissions.

The Liberals, NDP and Greens climate change plan should be reversed if they really care about lowering C02 emissions.
