Climate change is occurring whether we like to admit it or not. For the 1st time in Earth history, Human activity is to blame. The data on climate change is refuted by very few scientists. Only those scientists employed by Big Oil companies and other major corporations that make huge money on mining, distributing and burning fossil fuels are the ones casting doubt on the fact that burning of fossil fuel by humans is the main cause of recent rising of CO2 in the atmosphere and subsequent Global Warming. I am going to keep showing this excellent graph of CO2 history for the last 800,000 years based on CO2 concentrations in bubbles of ice core from Antarctica with today's levels measure at Mauno Loa in Hawaii. I believe it is the best comparison of past CO2 compared to today's levels. These are astounding.
Politicians cannot deal with this. They refuse to do anything because they claim it will tank the economy and they do not want to be the “harbingers of bad news” because that won’t get them re-elected. Politicians are only worried about short-term issues that will get them re-elected, that’s it. Nobody wants to put their names, reputations and jobs on the line for the good of man-kind.
Just read the list of inactivity below, compliments of the Toronto Sun columnist Lorrie Goldstein:
Canada along with most of the world’s countries missed another informal UN deadline on March 31, 2015 by not providing publically how much it is prepared to lower greenhouse gas emissions.
President Obama repeated a pledge to cut U.S. emissions by 26-28% below 2005 levels by 2025. The Obama administration also announced that it was on-track to cut emissions by 80% by 2050.
This is nothing but smoke and mirrors because Obama will not be in power in 2050, so he won’t be blamed when it is missed. And whoever is in power at that time will blame the former administration for setting unrealistic goals and they’ll start again.
In addition, these targets are a farce because the U.S. has now become a world’s largest producer of oil through fracking for it’s own use and continues to mine coal for export at record levels, both of which produce huge greenhouse gas emissions.
Other Politicians False Targets
Brian Mulroney administration in 1988 pledged to lower Canada’s emissions to 20% below 1988 levels by 2005 and then did nothing to achieve this goal.
Then the Conservatives lost power and the Jean Chretien administration in 1993 pledged to reduce Canada’s emissions to 20% below 1988 levels by 2005 and then also did nothing to achieve this.
Jean Chretien then revised our commitment of “inaction” by signing the Kyoto Accord in 1997 to reduce our emissions to an average of 6% below 1990 levels between 2008-2012, again without doing anything to achieve this.
And now Stephen Harper administration is in power while emissions are 30% over the Kyoto Accord limits and he could easily say, that meeting those Kyoto targets he would have to tank the Canadian economy. So he has committed Canada to reduce Canada’s emissions to 17% below 2005 levels by 2020.
Of course Stephen Harper will not be in power by 2020 and whoever comes into power will just blame the former administration.
Climate change is coming and politicians won’t deal with it. We need to make them understand that if serious greenhouse gas emission controls are not adopted by the biggest Greenhouse Gas emitters (#1-China 23.4% of World Greenhouse Gas Emissions, #2-U.S 14.7%) that greenhouse gas emissions can soon become out of control, and all scientists world-wide know what that would mean....just look at Venus.
