No Scientific Basis for Canadian Carbon (CO2) Tax plan

We are in a new era of professional politicians. Not professional in their ability to do the job, but in their ability to perpetuate themselves. Proof of this statement is that Donald Trump was elected because he said from the start he was not a politician. He succeeds because the professional politicians supported by their PR people, the mainstream media, keep misinterpreting his actions as if they are those of a professional politician. The facts do not matter, it is what suits their agenda that gets support. Cowper’s poem from 1782

The professional politician’s greatest talents are self-serving and the only thing they are good at are, finding new ways to tax, new ways to waste the money and new ways to feather and protect their nests. This is true across the political spectrum, they are all in the swamp. Trump illustrates the difference. Professional politicians promise many things to get elected. Shortly after getting elected they announce the financial conditions are far worse than they thought so they can’t keep any promises. Trump said conditions were worse than he thought, which means he had to do what he promised.

Andrew Scherr was elected Conservative leader opposing the human-caused global warming claim. One of his first actions as leader was to have the Conservatives vote to support the Paris Climate Accord. The Conservatives knew the science was wrong because we told them. We told Nancy Green and anyone who would listen all to no avail.

The farce begins with the fact it is not a carbon tax. What they intend to limit is the amount of CO2 that Canadians produce with the false belief it will stop global warming. There are three areas, any of which invalidates the plan.

1. Science: CO2 is only 4% of the greenhouse gases and the human portion is 3.4% of that making it on average 0.032% of all atmospheric gases. These numbers are so imprecise that even if the complete Paris treaty was applied the atmospheric difference would be undetectable. Estimates say it would reduce the global temperature by 0.048°C by 2100. That assumes that a CO2 increase will cause a temperature increase. Every record shows the opposite, temperature increases first. The only place where a CO2 increases raises temperatures is in the computer models of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). This is partly why the model predictions (projections) are consistently wrong yet that is the basis of the Paris Agreement and the Canadian tax plan.

2. Economic Context: Trump exited the Paris Agreement because it is a bad deal for all developed nations including Canada. While they roll back production the developing nations, including China, Russia, and India can develop unrestricted some until 2030. Worse, the developed nations must put $100 billion a year into the Green Climate Fund (GCF) from which even China, now the world’s biggest producer of CO2 is entitled to draw. The developed nations are in a bar fight with both hands tied behind their back and blindfolded.

3. Comments of Proponents: The entire global warming deception was never about the climate. Don’t believe us, take it from the people at the center of the scheme. Climate was a convenient global threat that allowed the UN planners, primarily Maurice Strong, to overcome nation-states claiming only a world government could handle the problem. Elaine Dewar said after 5 days with Strong at the UN, “Strong was using the U.N. as a platform to sell a global environment crisis and the Global Governance Agenda.” In 2015, Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the UN’s Framework Convention on Climate Change said, “This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution.”This follows former US Senator and now Vice Chair of the United Nations Foundation and the Better World Fund Timothy Wirth’s earlier (1993) comment that, “We’ve got to ride the global warming issue. Even with the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing…” look at his self-described manipulation in this PBS interview. A former Canadian Liberal Minister of the Environment, Christine Stewart said, “No matter if the science of global warming is all phony, climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.”

We will not take the politicians off the hook even though they are victims of the deep state, in this case Environment Canada (EC). All politicians are victims of Strong’s organizational legerdemain. He set up the IPCC through the bureaucrats at the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), an organization made up of bureaucrats from every UN member nation. He knew that if he controlled the bureaucrats he controlled the politicians. ADM of EC, Gordon McBean, chaired the IPCC founding meeting in 1985. He also knew this would block normal scientific testing of the hypothesis by other scientists acting as skeptics. A bureaucratic scientist is not going to tell the politician that what they based their careers and policy on is wrong. The politicians failed by being slavish puppets of the bureaucrats. Most know nothing about science and would not even know where to start asking questions. Much easier to be green and go along. Catherine Mckenna is a lawyer and Dr. Ball knows from his recent legal battles that they are almost all Arts students who know nothing about the law. However, as a lawyer she knows there are two sides to every debate, sadly, at massive cost to the public all politicians have listened to only one side.
