COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN CBC NEWS

 

“Peter MacKay’s claim that our emissions [carbon dioxide] total is ‘minuscule’ doesn’t really work as an excuse for inaction [MacKay is a candidate for the Conservative Party’s leadership]”

 

I am not a Peter MacKay fan, at all, but his perspective on this matter is sound. Canada is responsible for 1.6 % of global green house gas emissions.

Trade-offs must be considered in every major act of government. It’s something we all do in our private lives.

Resources are always limited, and we need to commit them to where they will do the most for us.

If Canada cannot make a significant contribution to climate change, it is just foolish to commit great resources towards it, as Justin Trudeau intends.

We impoverish ourselves that way relative to other countries.

And of course, that assumes that carbon dioxide is even the cause of climate change.

Some good brains say that it is not.

Is it sensible for the entire planet to start a costly crusade against something we do not completely understand?

And the fact is that a great part of the planet is not joining this crusade.
