Danielle Smith wins AB Premier

Test
Nov 19, 2022 | 09:13 211 Those who claim humans aren't causing climate change and then won't have a fair objective discussion about the costs of global climate change don't get to make climate change policy.

With OPEC raking in billions daily and another energy crisis takes hold of the world because Russia is a pariah, the transition to low carbon energy is speeding up as every country on earth wants to have as much independence as possible from fossil energy sources.

Carbon taxes will play only a small part. Very high market prices and Russia are having much more influence than carbon taxes could ever hope to have in the short term

Meanwhile in Great Britain the Conservatives have put a windfall tax on the oil industry to help out consumers.
Chuck2 you never responded to my question for your on post 204. Why is that? It is in reference to your constant attacks on oil company profits. Reply With Quote

And that is why they are switching to coal. 2022 will be an all time high for coal consumption.

Tied for highest ever (projected) oil consumption.

Projected to be highest ever nat gas consumption.

Sounds like alternative energies are making a real dent in fossil fuel's market share.

They sure have been successful in isolating Germany from natural gas supply shocks caused by the war. Reply With Quote

And those who claim that profits are evil and capitalism should be destroyed in the name of climate change, then won't have a fair objective discussion about the costs of destroying the energy infrastructure and economy and global climate change don't get to make climate change policy.

    So are you in favour of OPEC and Russia manipulating the price and supply of oil and keeping it higher priced during an energy crisis? Sounds like it!

    So where is the utopian free market capitalism that you so dream of when it comes to OPEC and Russia? You are very naive! Reply With Quote

    Looks to me like Europe wants nuclear war more than they want nuclear energy.

    Not going to feel sorry for the willfully stupid of this world who would destroy themselves to follow the green cult into the abyss.

    Russia is just giving them what they want. Reply With Quote

    Correction. European politicians are guilty of all of the above mentioned crimes, the people themselves are hosting Mass protests against the war and against the sanctions and against closing nuclear energy and against giving aid to Ukraine and against the high energy costs from the failed green revolution.

    They will most likely get the revolution, it just won't be the red one that Chuck has in mind Reply With Quote

    I see you are slowly changing your tune and claiming that they get a lot of it back.
    More broken promises.
    Just thought I would bump this up since Chuck seems to have conveniently missed it during his hard-earned days off.

    So why did you change your tune? Remember when you and the liberals used to claim we get more back than we paid? Reply With Quote

    Alberta strong and free, take us along. There should be a western avalanche of support behind her.
