Oil & Gas
Yes Or No
This whole thing is yet another cash grab!
I believe that money will be wasted and will to nothing to help the environment. We pay way too much tax!
We need a PM that is not destroying the democracy known as Canada. It is time to tell the P M running a country is not playing the game of Simon Says. Democracies don't want or need dictatorships.
Thanks for commenting. We recently boost posted 1,000 dollars into a post & poll asking Canadians if there was an election today would you vote liberal? After getting almost 8,000 comments, 3,000 post like engagements and 2,000 shares facebook deleted the post and all the comments. This will not happen here.
We need a prime minister that’s concerned about canada.
No more immigration, we can’t afford the ones that we have!
Carbon tax is just a money grab by the liberals. We have no leadership with this government and it will be time for them to take a hike the next election.
I've spent countless hours watching scientists making presentations about climate on Youtube, reading papers and books discussing climate effects of the sun, cosmic rays, atmosphere, clouds, geologic reconstruction of climate, basic CO2 physics as a greenhouse gas and its basic absorption spectrum, and the earth's radiation spectrum. Then I looked at data for CO2 in our atmosphere, the surface temperature record, the satellite temperature record, and the sea surface temperature record. Finally I looked at the UN IPCC CMIP5 models that our government relies on for its carbon policies.
Mauna Loa CO2 is rising.
UAH satellite temperature hasn't been rising since 1998.
HadSST3 Sea surface temperature has been dropping the past 3 years. There is almost no change since the record was started.
Sea levels are still rising but more slowly than the first part of the 20th century.
CO2 is already absorbing all of the heat the earth is radiating in its absorption spectrum. If you double or triple the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere you'd get perhaps 0.1C.
Emissivity is about how CO2 absorbs and transmits heat. The studies are suggesting that CO2 is an inefficient grey body ... very unlike the black body it is assumed to be in the climate models.
UN IPCC CMIP5 models are all predicting much more warming than is observed. The models are profoundly wrong
Government is relying on the false model predictions and isn't asking why the data shows very little warming for the past 20 years. Its making policies that will have an seriously disastrous effect on our lives.
Global warming hypothesis is the greatest fraud in our history. Anyone who thinks otherwise needs to explain the profound difference between the predictions made by the climate models and the actual observed temperatures.
How about where and how the tax is going towards reducing the amount of carbon. How about towards advancing cars that don't produce these emissions. Cities with jammed up traffic and in efficient transit should be able to have access to such funds. If these taxes are going to exist then they should be collected on behalf of the communities paying them to invest back into lowering transit fees and expanding services not just some other fee you have to pay with a big confusion as to what its being used for.
When someone asks 'carbon' when they mean 'carbon dioxide' ... its the first clue that person has no clue. Carbon is chemically and physically different from carbon dioxide. The carbon tax is meant to reduce carbon dioxide ... not carbon ... emissions. Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas that is being falsely attributed to causing the 0.8C warming observed since 1880 ... which marks the end of a cooling period known as the mini ice age.
Carbon taxes are intend to solve a false environmental issue. If you want to talk about transit etc ... its another issue that has to do with taxes in general. Please don't confuse the issue.
Carbon taxes discourage business from operating, drive the cost of goods up because of induced energy inflation, they are regressive in that its the poor that get the brunt of the taxes, and they don't solve the issue of climate change.
