What we currently know Conservatives support:
No carbon tax
Continued unrestricted GHG emissions
Expansion of pipelines using flawed Harper approval process
Expand coal electricity production
The comfort of never having to experience the loss of wealth due to restrictions on the development & sale of fossil fuels.
a) act now to prevent a problem; $30T
b) wait until tipping point reached; $20T fix + possible $100T climate damages
c) status quo but $20T for future economic loss + $35T geo-engineering before tipping point
Notice there is absolutely no consideration for anything but continued wealth development.
There is no cost analysis of the human suffering that will be the result of increased global temperatures.
No cost analysis of climate refugees.
No cost analysis of the loss of life & property due to sea rise, storm intensity or abrupt changes in climate.
Nothing but consideration of wealth development for those currently invested in fossil fuels.
It’s the economic engine.
Liberals restricting freedom to make money.
Environmental concerns hyperbolic.
FN & Courts have veto power.
Trudeau is killing oil industry.
It all fits
Consider again; most or all will be dead before the worst effects are realized. But in the lead up to that eventuality, they & their investors will be wealthy enough to avoid the pain & suffering it will cause.
We must take responsibility now and prevent catastrophic change later by stopping the Conservative agenda.
