Michael Moore Bombs His Buddies

dwr.jpgAs you would expect, radical environmentalist, Michael Moore’s latest documentary, The Planet of the Humans is all over the news lately.

Actually, not so much, and here’s why.

Moore and his associate Jeff Gibbs are lifelong, left-wing environmental extremists of the ‘Human burning of fossil fuels is causing atmospheric CO2 levels to increase, and that’s causing the climate to warm up rapidly, and that’s leading to catastrophic climate change, and the only thing that will save us to abandon fossil fuels and switch to renewable energy’ variety.

Moore and GibbsAlmost everything about that statement is provably wrong. But, environmental icons, Moore and Gibbs have now released a jaw-dropping documentary which actually takes on those renewables, and proves that they’re a scam.  The people being scammed of course, are us; the taxpayers who’ve been subsidizing this racket from the start.

For decades, headlines in the mainstream media have been dominated by the promise of solar and wind, but in fact, they still make up a tiny fraction of so-called renewable energy production. Overwhelmingly, renewables mean biomass, which originally was supposed to come from wood waste, and certain grasses.

But there’s not even close to enough of those, and so massive tracts of forest are being run through chippers, and artificially being turned into wood waste, and then burned in furnaces that produce massive amounts of CO2. (That’s the only upside to all this because more atmospheric CO2 is good for plant growth.) In the tropics, forests are being bulldozed and turned into palm oil plantations, which permanently destroys biodiversity. The destruction is sickening, but by comparison, reforestation of mined-out oilsands sites at Fort McMurray actually increases biodiversity.

So why are billionaires investing in “renewables”? Well let’s just say that people like Al Gore, and Tom Stier, and the Rockefeller foundation and the other staggeringly wealthy, phony environmentalists, don’t come off looking too good in this documentary. Their motivation for being in the renewables racket is revealed as being pure, unadulterated, greed.

Look carefully at this graph of energy sources until 2015. Coal, natural gas, and oil currently supply about 80% of our energy needs, and the demand is rising. The almost invisible sliver at the bottom is wind, solar, geothermal, and biomass combined. Anyone that says that the top three, fossil fuels which make up over 80% of energy sources, are a dying industry, is quite literally, delusional. And for that delusion they destroyed Alberta’s economy.Energy sources

So, expect the mainstream media to ignore Moore’s documentary, or else come out with blaring headlines like this one from the reliably left wing, Manchester Guardian. “Climate experts call for ‘dangerous’ Michael Moore film to be taken down.” You know, like they’d do in China.

When it comes to climate, or green ideology, the Guardian has exactly the same level of credibility as the New York Times, Toronto Star, the CBC, or any other mainstream media, which is exactly zero.

I strongly urge you to watch the documentary, and Share it with everybody on your mailing list, and on social media. Just click on the link above.

DSC5610_2-removebgAs you know, we’re backing Leslyn Lewis for CPOC leader. She happens to have a Masters in environmental studies, and I believe she will take the Michael Moore/Jeff Gibbs documentary seriously. It’s the perfect opportunity for Conservatives to promote the position that we must rethink this mad rush to green energy before we spend any more money on it. At least, that’s what I’m hoping will happen.

Singaporeans sacrifice some freedoms for security

dwr.jpgWe really hope that you are all staying safe, and reasonably sane during this difficult time! We took the car out yesterday because we had something to drop off, on the doorstep, at a client’s home, and then we washed the car. When we got home, we joked that that was our road trip for the week, about 20 km. At our current rate we’re getting about three weeks to the gallon.

On the virus front, some good news is that we’re told that Alberta is, at the moment, testing about 4000 people per day, more per capita than anywhere else in the world. And by the end of May the target is 20,000 people per day! South Korea with 51 million people is currently testing 10,000 people per day, down from 20,000 at the height of their crisis.

But 27 South Korean companies are currently manufacturing 350,000 test kits per day, and that will increase to an eye-popping 1 million test kits per day within the next few weeks. Many of them will come to Alberta, and Canada. One Korean company has developed a testing kit that can check nasal discharge for the presence of the virus within 10 minutes. It is approximately 85% accurate, and the test can be taken at home.

Singapore has had some remarkable success in combating the virus because they have actually been preparing for the last 15 years, while most Western countries have been talking about preparing. In this current pandemic, the Canadian government, and others, went so far as to listen to the WHO which in turn got its information from the Chinese Communist Party, which we now know has lied repeatedly.

SingaporeAnyway, here’s a video discussion with one of the key people in Singapore’s success. It’s about 30 minutes, but it’s absolutely fascinating, informative, and thought-provoking. One caveat about the video; in passing it implies that the Lee family and their political party have been in power since 1965 because there is no opposition. In fact, there are several opposition parties, but the Lee governments have been so successful in creating a balance between somewhat limited freedom and corruption free, entrepreneurial government, that Singaporeans keep electing them. You might not agree with their approach.

If you have personal protocols that you’ve developed to keep yourself safe from the virus, please share them with us! And if you know of good local sources for masks, we’re looking for some, and we’re sure others on this mailing list are as well.

Stay safe!

Alberta’s Choices

dwr.jpgRecently, I put up a Facebook post pointing out that Alberta was doing better than other provinces at testing and tracking cases of the CCP, or Chinese Communist Party virus, and that if we had control of our borders we could do much better. I even suggested that we’d be better off as a separate country!

A good friend who lives in Zambia responded that the people in Zambia would look on Canada as a place of opportunity, and security, and that perhaps we should just, “work it out.”

I responded that the citizens of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, DRC, which borders Zambia to the north, and which have an average annual income of $850 would look just as enviously at their Zambian neighbours who have an average income of $4100. And while I haven’t been to Zambia for many years, I would suspect that it’s still safer and far better governed than the DRC.

But that’s all quite beside the point. The issue for any national or sub-national government is not; how well you are doing, but, how well could, or should you be doing? Canada isn’t even coming close to its potential, and is, as a matter of policy, blocking Albertans from reaching theirs.

For 4 ½ years, the Canadian, and for 4 years Alberta’s own government, mindlessly focused on stopping Climate Change, by shutting down Alberta’s oil industry. They’ve been significantly and tragically successful, but even if they’re successful in shutting down Canada’s oil industry completely, it won’t reduce the world’s CO2 emissions by one molecule. The world will simply get its oil from OPEC. And, while busily destroying our own industry, Canada is spending $20 billion a year importing oil. If there were a Stupidity Olympics, Canada and several of its provinces would own the podium.

So, can we, “work it out”? As a young fellow who worked for me many years ago used to say: “It’s highly un-doubtful.”

Can Canada’s Constitution be changed to provide reasonably equal representation in the House of Commons?

Can it be changed to provide an Elected, Equal, and Effective Senate that can block a government from passing legislation unchecked?

Can the equalization formula be changed so that reflects economic reality, and potential, vis-à-vis each province?

Can the judicial system be restructured so that lawyers from across Canada have equal opportunity to sit on higher courts?

Can the law be changed so that Supreme Court Justices do not have to be bilingual, and not be required to live in the Ottawa region? We do have translators and airlines in Canada!

Unequal(Read these numbers carefully. Québec currently gets 50% of equalization, Alberta gets zero. In the past five difficult years, and, under constant attack from fellow Canadians, Alberta has paid a net 100 billion to the federal government)

So, can Canada be reconstructed so that every province and every region of the country is treated equally? Permanently? Irrevocably? To do that, seven out of ten provinces representing at least 50 percent of the population of Canada must agree with every one of the above changes.  That makes it impossible.

So, Alberta’s choices are:

  1. Status quo. If you’re okay with that you don’t live in Alberta, or you’re a masochist.
  2. Create a Canada wherein each citizen is truly, and permanently, equal. In my opinion, impossible. See above.
  3. Join the United States. The thought of an AOC or Sanders as my President, however remote, renders that unthinkable.
  4. Begin the project of leaving Canada and continue that project until our new nation is birthed. I absolutely and sincerely believe that’s the only real choice.

It will be a long and difficult, but not impossible project. And, it’s for our kids and grandkids!
