Tar, TMX and Trudeau: Leave It In The Ground, Please
The world needs an aggressive plan with ALL countries designed to mitigate the volume of carbon that we are producing.
That means Canada has to have a plan.
Unfortunately, the Trudeau Liberals have green-lighted the TMX pipeline (again), backsliding on any real commitments we have to get off carbon. Just a few days after, the Senate declared that a moratorium on shipping tar from BC coastlines to foreign markets will continue, resulting in a sewage pipe with no disposal plan.
And, we see that Scheer’s ‘plan’ is nothing but a steaming pile of BS and that the Conservative plan will actually increase carbon emissions at the expense of taxpayers, but the media and sellout pundits will still try to give it some credence, giving him the chance to repeat well rehearsed nonsense fed to him by his bosses in the oil industry.
To top it all off, we still have people saying ‘would you rather we ship it by rail’. For me, the answer is just an absolute ‘No, I would rather we just leave it in the ground and stop destroying our country politically, socially, economically and environmentally just so that we can make a few American and international oil barons rich beyond belief’.
Folks, it’s time to shut this down. We can pretend to stop using straws and maybe slip in the odd reusable bag once in a while, but pretending that we’re the ones who are supposed to should ALL of the guilt related to carbon is complete nonsense.
We have to set our sights on the companies that herding us to the edge of the abyss. If we don’t, we won’t have a planet worth saving and will be an embarrassment to all future generations.
