Apr 4, 2021 | 08:39 4 The way the feds are going, the province won’t get any credits/offsets for clean coal. That was built and implemented before carbon tax liberal plan, no retroactive. Reply With Quote

    Dont forget the cement industry in Quebec being exempted....that's the biggest payment of all...an exemption is a subsidy....

    And that exemption requires others to offset it. Reply With Quote

    Why avoid answering the question? If you want to be paid for capturing carbon there must be a reason? Reply With Quote

    Yup there is a reason ...because I am paying for my and others emissions...and more than likely the farm sequesters more than I emit.

    And the fact that my farm is being used to offset other industries without compensation. Reply With Quote

    There would be no reason to pay farmers for carbon credits otherwise. Reply With Quote

    I think you realize that farmers have already reduced their emissions with the current farming practices...

    The only thing is farmers are not being paid to sequester which is an ongoing exercise..

    Every other industry that has done nothing to reduce their emissions will be given a government grant to do so and then be given credits after..

    Farmers have done most of the reductions on their own dime.

    This includes the investments in machinery and genetics and crop rotations. Reply With Quote

    Why are they going to pay carbon credits to farmers in the U.S.A.? There is no carbon tax in the U.S.A.!! Reply With Quote
