The Justin Trudeau Liberal government thinks it is a leader on climate change and most in the mainstream media are his cheerleaders to that end. Yet, according to James Delingpole in a post at Breitbart, climate change warming is a scam.
Which begs the question: Why are the Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his Cabinet continuing with their march to a national carbon tax?
No I am not a “denier.” I am a former social science researcher who is looking at reality. Climate change or global warming, whatever you call it, is a scam that got started in earnest when NASA and NOAA scientists started using computerized climate models in the late 1990s. And, by using those models, they were allegedly able to fabricate new data that showed 20th century warming to be much more dramatic than previously thought. (H/T NewsWatchCanada).
Yet, interestingly, according to Delingpole, NASA’s James Hansen didn’t always believe in the warming narrative either. Was he a denier when he wrote in a 1989 report that: “In the U.S. there has been little temperature change in the past 50 years, the time of rapidly increasing greenhouse gases — in fact, there was a slight cooling throughout much of the country.”
So, what changed with the hard data between 1989 and now? What changed, was not the weather record per se, but the way the climate scientists use the computer models to get their results.
Which brings me to the climate change narrative we are hearing and reading about in Canada. The media not only does not question the changed assumptions, but is an uncritical advocate for Prime Minister Trudeau’s “sunny ways” mantra. Which is absolute folly when you realize that in 2010, Canada’s emissions were only at 1.7% of the worlds emissions.
The carbon tax will also be a travesty because, contrary to what the politicians tell us, they will “not” be revenue neutral. Not only will more Canadians lose their jobs, but many manufacturers and exporters will close up shop because their prices will no longer be competitive internationally. As well, we will all have a reduction in our standard of living because our hydro and home heating costs will rise significantly.
Which is why, when I watched the video when former PM Stephen Harper said good-bye on Friday, August 26th, 2016, I was reminded of how self-destructive so many Canadians were to elect a progressive Liberal government whose Prime Minister and Cabinet wants to be a world leader on an environmental approach that is based on a scam.
