Writer: the world ends every 10 years

Reader not happy with fear-mongering climate change

Dear editor;

As the evening news comes on TV these days, I am sickened by the way the commentators are pushing the climate change and environmental crisis agenda. I suppose that Trudeau spending $600 million for the media to spread this garbage has a lot to do with how it comes out in the news today.

In the 1970,s it was called, The New Ice Age, in the 80’s it was Acid Rain, in the 90’s it was Ozone Depletion. In 2000 it was called Global Warming and they have since changed it to Climate Change because global warming was such an obvious lie. Now it is called an Environmental Emergency because it sounds like it is something that we should be glad to pay taxes to fix.

For the last 50 years we have been brainwashed into believing that the world was going to end if we did not do something about it. That’s 50 years of being completely wrong in name of fear mongering for power and money.

Everyone including most of the schools in the country are teaching all the students that if we don’t do something about our Co2 emissions that the world is going to end. It is a known fact that trees capture Co2 and a lowballed figure of the amount of trees in Canada is 594.7 billion trees. Canada produces 559 megatonnes of Co2. To capture all of the Co2 that Canada produces it takes 25.7 million trees. We are more than looking out for our share of the Co2 that we are producing.

No amount of paying a carbon tax in Canada will have any effect on the amount of pollution caused by countries like China. This is the Liberal way of paying off some of the bad investments that they done in the last four years.

It makes me angry and very sad when I see our young people being led astray by our politicians and professors just to further their causes of fear mongering and to raise money.
