Leaders’ Climate Plan Misconceptions


As the Federal Election approaches, we are all learning of how each party believes they can best address the challenges related to greenhouse gas reduction. We hear the opinions of politicians, journalists and now, children, all of whom are assumed to be knowledgeable on this subject. We rarely, if ever, are afforded the opinions of scientists and engineers who can accurately, unemotionally, and honestly render a meaningful diagnosis, and then propose remediation action in an effort to reverse the effects of human activated climate change. Many concerned voters will choose a candidate based on the five or six offered climate plans.

Dear Editor,

With the revelation during last night's leaders' debate that our climate change leader in chief, Justin Trudeau, is flying not one but two planes everywhere for his campaign, I thought today would be a good time to tell everyone about the Conservative Plan for the environment. It's called 'A REAL PLAN to Protect Our Environment', with a focus on conserving our environment for future generations, protecting our children from the effects of climate change, and making a real impact on global emissions reductions. It is a comprehensive plan with 55 different initiatives based on three guiding principles: 1) Green Technology, Not Taxes; 2) A Cleaner and Greener Natural Environment; 3) Taking the Climate Change Fight Global.
