Government and industry virtue-signalers continue to trip over one another trying to support, defend, and justify Trudeau’s “net zero by 2050” climate policy “conversation.” And what a conversation it is! It celebrates a radical green agenda to destroy the prosperity of modern society. How? By taking away the foundations of that society, perhaps the most significant of which is affordable energy.
This winter is proving to be a severe one across much of the northern hemisphere. Extended cold snaps, lots of winter storms, and then more of the same.

As we pointed out in our previous blog post, the Trudeau government has made net zero by 2050 the central policy of their platform.
The world is a mess, the economy is a mess, and our governments continue to accumulate debt at an extraordinary pace even while there is serious talk of interest rates starting to spiral up. And what is our Prime Minister’s focus through all of this? Paris!
On January 20, 2021, which was Inauguration Day in the United States, the Keystone pipeline finally died.

What shouldn’t be blurred is clear vision when it comes to Trudeau’s carbon tax agenda. Just before Christmas, Trudeau told us he plans to raise the existing carbon tax 566% over the next 10 years. And quietly but determinedly, the Liberal government re-rolled out their second carbon tax – the so-called Clean Fuel Standard or CFS.
