Climate change likely to cause more sewage leaks, Environment Minister Catherine McKenna warns
McKenna said Tuesday that climate change is expected to bring about more frequent storms, like the flash flood rainfall in Toronto a week ago that left the harbourfront waters covered in debris from the toilets of millions of Toronto residents.
“This is a real problem,” McKenna said.
As the federal Liberals forge ahead with expensive tax-and-spend policies to tackle climate change, more and more Canadians aren’t buying into their agenda. In June, Ontarians finally disposed of their left-wing tax-friendly government in favour of one that will fight Justin Trudeau’s carbon tax. Albertans are likely to do the same next year.
With wildfires engulfing over 620,000 acres of California, there’s been a concerted media campaign to single out man-made global warming as the primary force behind the deadly blazes.
But that’s not what the data suggests, according to University of Washington climate scientist Cliff Mass.
Climate projections about rising sea levels and soaring temperatures increasingly dominate global headlines, but one climate story that rarely gets told is the tale of how women and girls are hit hardest by extreme weather and shocks.
Not only will the carbon tax render Canadian industry uncompetitive, it won’t even have a significant impact on global greenhouse gas emissions!
One year later, National Geographic has finally admitted to facilitating “fake news” regarding climate change. The magazine’s most viral video ever, which featured heart-wrenching images of a starving polar bear, perpetuated the narrative that the animal’s imminent death was caused by climate change. However, the climate change aspect of the story is void of any real evidence.
Canada is on the cusp of instituting a national carbon tax. Against push-back from normal Canadians in Ontario who are against the insufferable proposal, Liberal Minister of Environment Catherine McKenna explains how it will work.
A group of environmentalists are claiming “necessity defense” regarding their attempts in 2016 to shut down two pipelines, arguing that the threat of climate change is so imminent that they were justified in their actions. The Minnesota Court of Appeals in April ruled in their favor. The Minnesota Supreme Court subsequently declined to review this decision, allowing the protesters to fight their criminal charges using the necessity defense strategy.
In the article Liljestrand writes that because older white men deny climate change and also have a way of overconsumption they therefore cause the largest carbon dioxide emissions in the world.
The only person Liljestrand has met in recent years who “denied climate change” was an elderly Swedish man, he writes. “This single episode has caused me to blame all the fires, the chaos, (…) on older white men.”
The tech company has agreed to partner with UN Environment to increase the world’s access to valuable environmental data. Specifically, the two plan to create a user-friendly platform that lets anyone, anywhere, access environmental data collected by Google’s vast network of satellites.
Despite the calamity unfolding before our eyes, many people and organizations still cast doubt on climate science and scientists, and politicians and governments fight against the very measures critical to addressing the crisis and ensuring the planet’s climate remains stable enough for good human health and survival.
Because, thanks to you driving the kids to soccer in your fossil fueled minivan and bringing them oranges from far away places, the poor will be forced from their homes.
Simon Lewis is “professor of global change science” at University College London and the University of Leeds and apparently feels the need to justify his made-up position by getting people worked up into a froth over the apocalyptic evil that is “climate change.”
The scientist widely known as the “Father of Global Warming” has admitted for the first time that data used to promote his climate change theory was false and fradulently manipulated by Al Gore to suit an agenda.
Earlier this month, The New York Times featured an article titled “Hockey in the Desert.” The article concluded that by building a hockey stadium in Las Vegas, the National Hockey League was contributing to climate change. The phrase “contributing to” is used over and over by political leaders and the media to voice concern about human-caused global warming, but “contributing to climate change” is a meaningless phrase.
