JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: A LOT OF NOISE IN CANADA OVER CLIMATE CHANGE – SOME MUCH NEEDED PERSPECTIVE TO KEEP IN MIND – OVERTONES OF A RELIGIOUS ENTHUSIASM RATHER THAN A FACTUAL DISCUSSION   Leave a comment

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN CBC NEWS

 

“Worried about climate change? You’ve got a tough decision to make

“3 parties share a broadly aggressive approach to the problem – but there are devils in the details”

 

Just a reminder for perspective, and perspective is always important.

Canada, with emissions of a tiny, tiny fraction of the world’s emissions, is realistically in no position to have any impact on global events.

And that’s assuming something that is anything but certain, that carbon emissions even have anything to do with the realities of climate change.

The cold hard fact is while climate change is proven, its cause absolutely is not. A lot of people have gone off into hysterics about a matter they really do not understand. We are witnessing religious enthusiasm, not thoughtful inquiry and discussion.

But if Canada somehow decides to go for broke in the name of feel-good slogans, its economy literally will be destroyed vis-a-vis its competitors in the world.

Then we’ll have no choice but use sailboats and bicycles for everything.

Yes, yes, it much resembles being called a heretic in the Middle Ages.

Dangerous and irresponsible.

[The article featured a photo of a rather insipid-looking Trudeau sitting, his chair near young Greta’s, with his hands in his lap, listening intently to her almost frighteningly-intense face.]

Well, although he pretends otherwise, we’ve all seen the effective loyalty to Trump that Trudeau has displayed in international affairs, and there is no greater angry child on earth than Donald Trump.

Trudeau has actively supported Trump’s views, ignoring Canada’s more worthy traditions while helping create a complete mess.

Response to a comment saying amongst other things, “We ALL have a conscience and we ALL know what we have done and continue to do is WRONG. We do not own the Earth – the Earth owns us! What our generation has done is worse than any other…”

Sorry, your words are religious words, not scientific or logical ones.

And look at what religion did to Europe in the Middle Ages.
