Yet you support increased GHG with allowing everyone to puff pot smoke into the atmosphere.

I don't think those two goals are congruent.

Does anyone else find it odd that when one of the usual climate change deniers submits a rude comment, he/she receives at least 4 'likes', but when someone else submits a well-thought out, science-based comment, only one (sometimes two) 'likes' are submitted?

This does not bode well for sane Okanagan residents, does it?

No, actually, they don't. They would die. But of course, even though your comment is dead wrong, it will be described as "science based", just like all of the gobble-de-gook we get every day from the man-made climate change zealots.

Does anyone else find it odd that when someone submits a well-thought out, science-based comment about how taxing natural gas is stupid and horrible for poor people, one of the usual Church of Global Warming science deniers submits a rude comment, and he/she refuses to answer the basic questions asked about why they want to tax poor people into starvation. All they respond with is sanctimony and virtue-signaling garbage.

This does not bode well for Okanagan residents who are poor and can't afford insanely stupid and draconian carbon taxes, does it?

“The B.C. government is sitting on a report commissioned by its climate-action secretariat that measures the greenhouse-gas emissions associated with developing a liquefied natural-gas industry… The report obtained through a Freedom of Information application is largely redacted – blanked out because the contents are considered advice to cabinet.” ~ The Globe and Mail | Justine Hunter | November 8 2013

You know when the Christy Clark government is not forthcoming with a report measuring greenhouse gas emissions associated with the development of her LNG pipe dream, it’s going to be bad news!

This is about as relevant as noting that if you try to breath water it must mean dihydrogen monoxide should be banned as well.

Oh wait people already think that......this is the left.
