Some Inconvient Truths for Mr. Suzuki

(UPDATE: Yes, I realize I misspelled "Inconvenient". Oops)

Thank you for being a reasonable, middle of the road newspaper, National Post, and for being willing to state something other than the "official" truth.

Is the world headed for a period of global cooling? According to a report in New Scientist magazine, we just might be. Some scientists are finally finding their voice, and pointing out that the Kyoto proponents have virtually ignored any role the sun might play in the recent increases in surface temperature. Namely, that the altering cycles of solar activity, such as the period of highly intense activity that is just ending, may have more to do with the recently recorded increases than Kyoto proponents would care to admit.

Could is be that all this garbage about "Global Warming" is really just political? Could it be that David Suzuki and Al Gore have pushing this theory so much because they've finally found an issue with traction that will help them realize their real political agenda... the de-industrialization of the world?

Here's my theory... Mr. Harper will be attacked continually by the media, the Sierra Club, Greenpeace, and Mr. Suzuki, over the new "Green Plan II" to be released this month. The new policy will continue to look into the issues of "climate change", but won't take much action on the Kyoto front, for the moment. The new plan will address the issues of urban smog, greater environmental protection, and cleanup of existing problems.

And the new plan will resonate with voters, because it will address their real concerns regarding the environment and pollution. They've been told that the Conservative Party is anti-environment, because they are anti-Kyoto. When the see Canada's New Government(TM) actually taking action on the environment file, they will tune out some of the Kyoto activists rhetoric. The only reason they've even cared about Kyoto is because they've been told that Kyoto was the only environmental policy anyone was ever talking about... therefore, they were duped into thinking that if you were anti-Kyoto, you were automatically anti-environment. When that lie is finally refuted, Kyoto will become less of an issue in the minds of Canadian voters. And we'll finally have some movement on the environment file, now that we'll finally be able to get beyond the whole Kyoto fiasco.

Maybe we'll actually be able to turn some votes in the Liberal MTV bloc. (Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver) With record numbers of smog days, a government that actually deals with an issue of concern to them might actually change a few minds.

    I doubt that the electorate will be able to dissociate Kyoto from environmental issues in general. Previous governments have linked Kyoto to environmental issues for so long that the two are practically synonymous.

    Agreed; too many people think the Kyoto targets are going to reduce smog in their cities.

    Not to mention that the individuals who really "belive" in the Kyoto Accord do so for political reasons.

    So far the Conservative government hasn't been too bad (though I suspect that this is because they only have a minority), and if they can actually do something about polution (and not just talk about it) I'd seriously consider voting for them in the future, but only if (and this is a major if) they can stay away from trying to promote the more conservative sexual values (which I believe to be truly evil and dangerous) and keep a huge wall of separation of church and state going.

    I think you'll actually get your wish Drew. With the SSM vote likely to fail in the fall, and the fact that the church has no control of the CPC (dispite what the Liberals and the media would have you believe), more conservative social values won't be imposed.

    The CPC, for the record, isn't interested in turning back the clock... most support civil unions, which would not turn the clock back at all. They're more interested in preventing the further decay of morality in Canada... preventing child exploitation, polygamy, etc.

    As for the enviro, you'd be surprised at how important it is to many CPC members, such as myself. (and I'm far from alone) Our beef is with KYOTO, not other green issues. Kyoto WON'T stop or even slow "Global Warming", because the data that Kyoto is based on completely ignores how involved the sun is, which, for the record, is ending a period of MAJOR activity. However, again, climate change is a STANDARD feature of this planet we've been given, NOT a problem that needs to be fixed. The data on which "Global Warming" is based is flawed... the "Hockey Stick", which is STILL used by the UN in their climate change publications. (though completely refuted)

    Then there's the "disappearing" ice sheets... I've heard that in fact, they're getting thicker. So, if that's true, though they are receding in terms of surface area, they're staying the same in terms of volume.

    Again, all I'm saying is that we're ONLY hearing one side of the story... the one that David Suzuki wants us to hear. And that's because the steps proposed to curb "Global Warming" fit right in with the "hidden agenda" he's had for the last 30 years... bringing global industry to a grinding halt. (though I agree with him in that we need to slow it, or we will really make a mess of things, both ecologically and economicly...)

    Good, good, although I would suggest that there is nothing wrong with polygamy and that it should in fact be legalized (as long as it is, like regular monogamous marriage (both gay and straight), between consenting adults and not children). My view on sexuality (and the law in general) is that anything should be allowed as long as it is not obviously harming other people against their will (yes, there will have to be exceptions, but they should be few and necessary, not just because something offends the sensibilities of certain people).

    I'm glad that the CPC is concerned with the environment and if your predictions about SSM come to pass and they both stay away from the more conservative sexual "agendas" and actually do end up doing some good for the environment I will definitely consider voting for them in the future.
