Dear Minister Nixon,
When David Suzuki made his statement about pipelines getting blown up, he had long since destroyed his credibility. However, we now have yet another reason to be skeptical of anyone who demands that we “trust the science” about the so-called “climate emergency” and the ridiculous, expensive solutions to these supposed problems.
When I believed in Catastrophic Anthropogenic Climate Change (CACC), I stopped driving my VW Fox (80hp, 4cyl, 1000KG) and I became an avid cyclist year-round. I biked through the bitter, freezing cold and under the hot, blazing sun. Even now that I think CACC is fraud, I still bike over a thousand kilometers per year. If David Suzuki and his ilk really believe that we need to reduce our carbon footprint, why hasn’t he been promoting cycling since he was convinced that there was a problem? Bicycles are, by far, the most efficient form of transportation. They were readily available and affordable long before the first TESLA rolled off the production line. They were a viable option when Suzuki was a child. They improved a lot by the time he began claiming that fossil fuels were killing the planet and they have just gotten better and better. There is no excuse for the economically idiotic and unsustainable solutions that they propose to their fake crisis.
Deaths from weather-related events have declined dramatically in the past century. Storms have always happened and the data shows now alarming trends that I can see. Judging by the Prime Minister’s willingness to lye about his schedule on The Day for Truth and Reconciliation so that he could go surfing before and after the consumption of a large amount of jet fuel, Justin Trudeau is much less worried about CACC than I ever was. No major politician reduced his or her carbon footprint the way I did. No science/entertainment superstar like David Suzuki or Neil Degras Tyson seems willing to show the world how much fun it can be to ride a bicycle. What am I supposed to think when I see how slimy high-profile climate alarmists often are? David Suzuki’s foundation had a webpage to scare children with a cartoon of Santa’s workshop sinking into the Arctic. He even stated on Australian television that elected representatives who disagree with him should be prosecuted. That’s almost mafioso.
If the drought of 1540 happened today, climate alarmists would certainly blame human prosperity. I demand that the government stop towing the line on this issue. I don’t even want to hear about the need to make a “clean energy transition” when proponents of such policies are such hypocrites. The City of Calgary claims to have the most extensive network of bicycle paths and second busiest LRT network in North America. Calgary has been recognized as the cleanest city in the world. There is room for improvement but we are doing an excellent job here. I was recycling before Greta Thunberg’s parents even met.
Thank-you for speaking out against Suzuki’s comments. Please, don’t stop there.
