Will it be too extreme to say if our governors create a Canadian high-carbon National Energy Plan for 2014 for fossil fuel companies, we will be complicit to signing death warrants for future generations?
Our children and grandchildren are in the middle of this high-carbon energy policy being created. They are the least responsible for the GHGs we are now producing and expanding. Our future generations need a safe climate future legacy from us. Our leaders do the opposite using our tacit support.
Will we be quiescently docile as Canadian rulers promote, produce, and profit from/for fossil fuel corporations employing fantastic new opportunities, exciting new jobs, B.C.’s new legacy fund, new government revenues … all result of their propaganda? CAPP, Harper, Redford and Clark conducts a massive propaganda campaign to promote a massive Canadian GHG economy.
Natural gas isn’t clean. Toxic extraction, costly liquefying, mad marketing, burning gas amasses dangerous GHG’s. BC produces global danger selling clean GHGs. Burning Canada’s gas, bitumen and coal globally, adds problems of global GHGs.
Every dollar we invest in new GHG projects is an investment by death of our children and grandchildren. “Every Child Matters.”
A new high-carbon energy plan will help us pass the inertial 2C momentum mark four years from now (IEA) … by 2030, reach for 2 C by 2040-2060(?), possibly 4-5 C by 2100. Sir Nicholas Stern, author of the 2006 Stern Commission Report said in January, 2013, “I got it wrong on climate change—it’s far, far worse.” Stern says we are on track for 4 C. Now, “I would have been much more strong about the risks of a four or five-degree rise.”
Does Harper have a mandate from us to say this is wrong? Grandiosely, Harper says to the world, he will not take “NO” to new GHG development in Canada. Harper take the heat?
Now at 0.8 C, our children’s climate future is at risk. Arctic, Antarctic, Greenland ice sheet, glaciers globally, northern permafrost are melting as temperatures rise. Warming sea level rise. We experience unaffordable global weather extremes exacerbated from current global warming. Reversible? 0.8 C is unsafe.
Shall Canadians plan and move to a low-carbon sustainable economy by 2015, activated through 2020 and beyond for social justice and peace? Canadians? Shall we put an end to the human race? Make it so? Extremes?
