Why Harper’s vow to slash Co2 emissions is meaningless

The Harper government has vowed to reduce Co2 emissions by 30 percent by 2030.

    And in another example of why we need less government in our wallets, the cbc is excited this morning about the plight of federal scientists. The spokesman for the scientists is a federal shark expert. I didn’t know the government had a shark scientist. Are sharks a major problem in Canada’s lakes and streams?

      Well, some sharks are sharkier then other.

        Sharks are not a problem in our lakes, streams and toilet bowls because of the fine work done by our federal sharkologists. Defund them at your peril.

          not to forget provincial sharkologists (just love it). at least if you live in the Some People’s Republic of Ontario.

            Sharkophobia is in evidence here.

      Sharks? I think they mean lawyers and a major problem on land rather than in our lakes and streams.

    • Well, now, they are sharks.

      But seriously, there are sharks in the Atlantic.

    Meaningless enviro announcements by political parties is good.
    It helps the easily confused no information voter concentrate on more important stuff, election issues like
    “What ‘cha gonna gib me, huh?”.

  • DMB

    Empty political rhetoric pandering to low information voters and MSM who wouldn’t vote for them anyways!

    all harper vows are meaningless now that he has decided to acquiesce to the supreme court as final decision makers on everything

  • Carbon dioxide isn’t a pollutant.

    In order to reach those objectives, one would have limit or remove people and technology.

    Harper is grasping at straws here.

    I think Ontario might meet that goal if we keep voting for the liberals.
    We all be unemployed and hungry, but that’s an other topic.

    This better only be some sort of empty promise media manipulation campaign because if he makes any real move to slash CO2 or tax CO2 or participate in any sort of CO2 cap and trade I guarantee that I will NEVER vote conservative ever again.
