Wipe that smile off Trudeau. You are a turncoat and a slimy weasel.

I'm disappointed as well, but restricting supply is largely irrelevant.

Reducing demand is the real fight, and Trudeau leads on that.

The carbon tax is vastly more important.

Yes, but I can't stand political weasels. He has not loyalty to anything, not his own words, and I don't believe he has only real loyalty to the environment.

Coal, oil pipelines, those are our biggest problems. He's not helping.

I doubt it will have any effect on oil prices. Meanwhile, GW dries the forest and the fires burned the oil sands region. Whats it going to take?

The problem is Catastrophic Climate Change. Corrupt bought and paid for puppets like Trudeau are just one symptom. As long as the cost of fossil fuels is kept artificially low with welfare queen subsidies and other forms of corrupt profit over planet practices, the demand destruction that a carbon tax theoretically is supposed to obtain, will not materialize. A carbon tax is an empty gesture unless it is coupled with a policy to use all the subsidy money, hitherto given to the fossil fuel industry, totally to fund Renewable Energy Technologies.

As the article above stated, " As a reminder here, atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations are continuing to rise at a rapid clip — due to the fact that fossil fuel usage remains right around all-time highs. If anthropogenic climate weirding and warming is to be limited to any real degree, then oil use will have to fall drastically within just the next few years."

We are basically out of time for half measures. There is no way whatsoever that we can match the reduction required by the Paris Agreement any more (see below).
