Saving the Planet
with from "Kermit" CampBULL

BC liaRs' Christmas All Year Round Display!

Yesterday the CBC reported some results from Environment Canada regarding "facility" emissions. Thanks probably to the economic meltdown and mill, factory and other closures all provinces, except British Columbia had reduced GHG emissions from industry. In spite of the fact that most sawmills, pulpmills and other industrial sectors are on their knees or shut down, BC managed to increase its emissions, and buck the trend, thanks to the subsidization of the gas and oil sector by Kermit Campbell.
British Columbia was the only province in the country to report an increase in greenhouse gas emissions from major industries in 2008, according to figures released by Environment Canada.

The figures cover so-called "facility greenhouse gas emissions" from power plants and heavy industries such as mining, pulp and paper, and petroleum.

British Columbia's dubious distinction was largely the result of oil and gas extraction, Environment Canada said.

A commenter called JohnnyMan at the CBC site summed it up better than I can with:
So all you have to do to be "honoured in Copenhagen" is tax the poor and call it a "Carbon tax".

This is a very dubious distinction indeed!!!

I wonder if the BC Liberals changed the name of "Income tax" to "Carbon tax" would we be even greener? Maybe Campbell would have been up for a Nobel prize?

Every British Columbian, except the ultra Environmentalists, knew that this Carbon Tax was nothing more than another scheme by this Liberal government to suck more wealth out of the common citizen.

And the only reason the ultra Environmentalists didn't see the writing on the wall was because of their deep desire and hope that this government actually meant what it claims.

When the biggest polluters receive tax breaks and the tiny polluter (a British Columbian) gets taxed heavily for driving to work, you know there is nothing "environmental" in the Liberal agenda.

We are being conned and lied to by this government. Again.
But we British Columbians have built up such a tolerance for lies from the Liberals that after a while you stop listening - and then you stop caring.

Of course then there is slightly less polite, but just as accurate, Thanatos, who contributes:
B.C.'s emissions are going up because Fat Gordo and the mob let them go up. He's a slimey womanizer who is about as two faced as you can get. He preaches green and taxes you and I, but leaves his corporate task masters alone.

Then there is, the usually kinda tending toward right wing whack, Adrian of Unambiguously Ambidextrous who covers the hypocrisy quite well at his blog with B.C. Makes Money From Oil and Gas, Then Taxes Residents For Buying It. Adrian adds to his blog post over at the National PooP Post with the chart provided below and this comment, B.C. collects green award while emissions increase

"Facility" Emissions by Province - 2008

Of course we shouldn't forget the rest of Lord Gord's "green" (as in USD)initiatives, such as, promoting oil tanker traffic on the BC Coast, the ongoing efforts to kill off wild Pacific Salmon with his buddie's fish farms, the obscene Enbridge Northern Pipeline to enable the Goo-Pits of Northern Alberta, burning the forests of BC to provide "green" brown power, the urge to supply enough coal to China so they can continue opening a new coal plant every week or two, the massive amount of infrastructure being built on borrowed money to accomodate even MORE cars trucks and things that spew fumes.......and of course I could go on....but again, I have other things to do today.

Good stuff Kootcoot...I have a special post later tonight to give Marc Jaccard his just award.

And remember..Gordon Campbell stated before the carbon tax was implimented that "The carbon tax is the equivalent of taking 400,000 cars off the road each year"

Amazing how our emissions rose with 600,000 less cars on the road(18 months of the gas tax)

Warm wishes for a Happy New Year, and many more of them.

So it's "premier Kermit", eh?

Allow me to introduce "Fermit the Krog" as the most eligible person in government who should've received a lump of coal in his Christmas stocking.

And yes, I no longer separate The Opposition from The Government of B.C. Looks to me like they're both the same. Could Fermit the Krog have been LESS helpful than in July 2009?

Sheesh ... do you think we'll ever be writing some GOOD NEWS about the rotten government (including the so-called Opposition) in the province of B.C.? Let's hope, eh.

Meantime, I think the Citizens of B.C. are doing some very good work ... bless 'em all.

All the best, Koot. To you and your family.
