Kinder Morgan protestors

Just wondering, do whale conservationists also protest whale watching operations, whos business it is to directly interfere with whales? Ships don’t go looking for whales, to spend the day encircling them and sometimes crashing into and lacerating them with propellers. Maybe whale conservationists would have better success going after the whale watching industry, where there is an observable issue.
The Strait of Juan de Fuca, and Salish Sea, are turning into an open-water zoo.

Discarded fishing nets and ropes are another issue affecting ocean life.

That's now two indigenous groups bidding on the TMX. Where are all the eco terrorist idiots going to go when they can't use the indigenous card in their propaganda?

:up: :D :clapping:


Ahhhh .. Maybe they will go consult with George Heyman!

Climate change might be caused by more than just man burning petroleum. Climate change is likely caused by natural events as well.

Project Reconciliation says the bid will be underwritten by contracts with pipeline customers and not rely on taxpayers. The group says almost 340 Indigenous communities across B.C., Alberta, and Saskatchewan could choose to share ownership of the pipeline, which is designed to ship crude oil from the oilsands to the West Coast.


Project Reconciliation says it plans to set aside 80 per cent of future proceeds from the pipeline into a type of sovereign wealth fund to ensure longer-term benefits for Indigenous communities in Western Canada.

I don't have any real hope that it will work but I sure hope it does.

The Alberta government is holding a public inquiry into funding of environmental campaigns it says have prevented the province's resources from getting to new customers.


Kenney says environmental groups funded by deep-pocketed U.S. charities have been deliberately trying to landlock Alberta resources for years.


Maybe it can show exactly where the money for the professional protestor originates.

I didn’t know there are ocean floor volcanoes that spew oil, gas and bitumen. I’m not saying this is good or bad, it just didn’t occur to me as something that happens.

Check out the oceanic research video in this link:

Whatever happened to that protesting Grandpa, the guy that was arrested after swimming into the Trans Mountain oil terminal? They caught him just as he was coming ashore. He was also arrested for climbing a tree and planning on staying there.
He's kind of disappeared, nothing in the media about him.

Probably the most concentrated source of GHG generation in BC is YVR. I commented before that the "protestors" and "greenies" are all over the TMX but did nothing about a new tanker port and pipeline to supply YVR.

https://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/what-on-earth-newsletter-air-travel-green-1.5240306

"Scientists calculate that a person taking one return flight from eastern North America to central Europe generates about the same amount of carbon emissions as they would commuting 25 kilometres a day for an entire year in a fuel-efficient car.

And it turns out that flight can actually cause twice as much warming as you'd expect from the CO2 emissions alone because of the nitrogen oxides, contrails and cirrus clouds it generates in the atmosphere."

Well "greenies"? Whatcha doin' about that? Are you flapping your arms all the way to Costa Rica to go on your "eco tour"?

When are we going to see the "greenies" chaining themselves to airport gates? Elizabeth? Kennedy? Where are you? Get out there and chain yourself to the gates of YVR! Bring some drummers, build some shacks! You can get there by Skytrain.

Nope, not George.

I found him:
https://www.burnabynow.com/news/update- ... 1.23892619

Terry Christenson, plays the senior citizen role, goes on a hunger strike and is supported by Stand.Earth, an American based eco group.
He's been arrested three times and is now charged with criminal contempt of court. He's back in court the end of this month. Let's hope he comes up against a judge that frowns on disrespect of the law.
