Alberta, Canada is subsidizing tar sands fossil fuel biosphere trashing!

How? The massive flooding that has recently hit Albert is caused by Global Warming. YET, it's the citizens of Alberta that have to foot the bill for flood damages. This is a SUBSIDY that is actually LARGER than the obvious tax breaks and depletion allowance subsidies given to fossil fuel pigs.

Just another TOTALLY IGNORED, IN-YOUR-FACE cost of burning fossil fuels that fossil fuelers refuse to own up to.

The Alberta Fossil Fuel  Tar Sands pigs should be the ones billed that BILLION DOLLARS! 


And THAT MASSIVE INVISIBLE SUBSIDY that fossil fuelers enjoy on the backs of we-the-people is the MAIN REASON the fossil fuel agents of mendacity and duplicity are going all out to convince people to DOUBT the ESTABLISHED SCIENTIFIC cause and effect link between burning fossil fuels and damages from Global Warming AMPLIFICATION of extreme weather events.

The Fossil Fuelers   DID THE Climate Trashing CRIME,   but since they have ALWAYS BEEN liars    and conscience free crooks     ,    they are trying to AVOID   DOING THE TIME or     PAYING THE FINE!     Don't let them get away with it!
