Hypocrites on climate change – and incompetents

Anyone who believes you can’t suck and blow at the same time has never met the Ontario Liberals when they’re explaining their plan to — insert laughter here — “fight” global warming.

Because of Premier Kathleen Wynne, Ontarians are now paying almost $2 billion more a year, ostensibly to fight climate change, through her cap-and-trade carbon pricing scheme.

And yet, also thanks to Wynne, we’re about to become part owners of a giant U.S. electricity plant in Montana that consumes one rail car of coal every five minutes, with all the greenhouse gas and pollution problems that entails.

    Follow the money and apply the logic rules of rent seeking thievery to pierce any smoke and mirrors screen.

    I just got back from a two week vacation in Nova Scotia and PEI. Gasoline is now cheaper in PEI than it is in Ontario.

    Would they declare a “war on global warming” or don’t they like the word “war”?

    Heres the twisted logic.
    They will buy the old coal fired plants in the states one at a time and use Canadian taxpayer money to build more wind farms here, then shut down the US coal plants and supply them with cheaper “green power”, again subsidised by canadian’s through utility rates that are through the roof. We will pay 10 dollars a kilowatt hour so our Amarican friends will be happy to quit burning coal and polluting ontario, while paying less than they do now for their existing utilities.
    Thanks for turning us into a slave nation, Liberal/NDP governments of Canada.
