Climate Change? Forget About It: McGuinty Liberals

Dalton McGuinty: Climate Change denier or just a realist?”

Dalton McGuinty is a fool. I’ve said it before and I will continue to say it until I’m convinced otherwise. As far as energy policy is concerned, he has allowed global warming fanatics like David Suzuki, Al Gore, Robert Hornung, of CanWEA, and the media to make the decisions.

We do not have leaders in this province or country. A leader would lead. Our elected officials are followers. They follow fanatics, polls and the media. Hell, Gordon Campbell, Premiere of BC, says his provincial budget is partly based on a book he read, that was written by Al, the scam artist, Gore.

Give the energy policy back to the people who know what they are doing. Energy is too important to be left to the whims of politicians.

The coal plants will never close. McGuinty even made a statement to that affect. He said he would shut them down but keep them operational in case we need them in the future. Instead of worrying about the C02 boogie man, put the scrubbers on the coal plants. Since McGuinty first came to power in 2003 he has put the health of thousands at risk, a risk that could have been removed by installing the scrubbers.

You can bet your last dollar that we are going to need the the coal plants. Look at Germany says Robert Hornung, they are the leader in wind power. Ya Robert, lets look at Germany, they have the most wind turbines, they also have very high electrical rates and the wind turbines work so well that Germany is in the process of building 26 coal plants.

The coal plants will never close in Ontario.

That’s a Fact! Jack

Climate Change? Forget About It: McGuinty Liberals
Liberal Premier of Ontario Dalton McGuinty: Climate Change denier or just a realist?

(Note: This is a perfect follow-up to my previous post, Higher Energy Bills Likely With Emissions Reductions: Harper )

I didn’t make this up. Ontario’s Liberal government yesterday brought down its socialistic budget… and, according to the Toronto Sun’s Lorrie Goldstein, did not really pay anything more than throwaway, afterthought lip service to the supposedly most critically important issue facing the planet, global warming/climate change. Emphasis mine.

This is interesing. And it speaks volumes…

What ever happened to fighting the greatest threat known to mankind in yesterday’s Ontario budget?

Incredibly, Finance Minister Dwight Duncan didn’t mention “global warming” at all in his 14-page budget speech. “Climate change” got only one mention, in one brief sentence, on page 10.

Even that was two pages back of his apparently all-important plan “to enhance the Ontario Interactive Digital Media Tax Credit.”

The budget itself devoted just three of 158 pages (1.9%) to all environmental issues, many of which have nothing to do with global warming.

(…)

Finally, and most tellingly, the media didn’t ask one question of Duncan, Conservative Leader John Tory or NDP Leader Howard Hampton in three separate news conferences, about Premier Dalton McGuinty’s plans to fight climate change — not even as we all merrily prepare for “Earth Hour” this Saturday.
