The “climate disaster” and anti fossil fuel rhetoric has ramped up again. With the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), we are told that “climate change is happening”; that this is a “code red for humanity”; that the evidence is unequivocal, and action has to be taken; that “billions will die this century” if we don’t get off fossil fuels...you’ve heard it all before.
It seems that some segments of British society are voicing their opposition to the potentially disastrous consequences of committing to Net Zero emissions.
The British Newspaper The Sun notes in a 7 July 2021 piece that the Boris Johnson Government’s “Net Zero” agenda will cost £50,000 per household. That’s British Pounds – which at today’s exchange rate is in the order of $86,000 Canadian. Per household!
Last week, the Trudeau Government received Royal Assent for the Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act. Net-Zero Emissions? Let’s take a minute to remind everyone what this is all really about.
Do you ever feel good when someone won’t tell you how much something costs – something you have to pay for? No? Me neither.
Last week, the National Observer, one of the voices of environmental activism in Canada, published an article entitled Natural Resources Canada probes net zero affordability.
