Vancouver City declares Climate Emergency

Vancouver City declares Climate Emergency

Postby Jlabute » Jan 17th, 2019, 11:04 am

Disproportionately green, Vancouver city council unanimously vote to declare a climate emergency/crisis. The push began with Christine Boyle who is a Climate Justice Activist, & COP21 delegate, & graduate of Gr12.

Vancouver city is joining virtual-virtue signalling hands with a few other nutbar cities like LA and London to declare something that even the IPCC doesn't declare. In the wake of recent high winds and resulting damage, we have once again a weather event being blamed as catastrophic climate change by politicians, no science, or evidence involved. Rest assured, the financially starving city of Vancouver, with the highest debt in Canada, will find new revenue streams even if they are scams. To be seen.

On the good side, there is no such thing as bad weather anymore since strong winds are always 100% human generated. Sounds like bad science, science fiction, and conspiracies have found a home.

Good. They're a coastal city and it IS an emergency.

who votes for these lunatics? This is a big wake-up call to the people of Vancouver - you have inmates running the asylum.

Further lunacy from the lunatic Left - and you all knew this was coming - to "fight" the man-made climate change myth, we have to stop eating meat. Surprise surprise.

Scientific targets for a healthy diet
Despite increased food production contributing to improved life expectancy and reductions in hunger, infant and child mortality rates, and global poverty over the past 50 years, these benefits are now being offset by global shifts towards unhealthy diets high in calories, sugar, refined starches and animal-based foods and low in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds, and fish.

The authors argue that the lack of scientific targets for a healthy diet have hindered efforts to transform the food system. Based on the best available evidence, the commission proposes a dietary pattern that meets nutritional requirements, promotes health, and allows the world to stay within planetary boundaries.

Compared with current diets, global adoption of the new recommendations by 2050 will require global consumption of foods such as red meat and sugar to decrease by more than 50%, while consumption of nuts, fruits, vegetables, and legumes must increase more than two-fold. Global targets will need to be applied locally – for example, countries in North America eat almost 6.5 times the recommended amount of red meat, while countries in South Asia eat only half the recommended amount. All countries are eating more starchy vegetables (potatoes and cassava) than recommended with intakes ranging from between 1.5 times above the recommendation in South Asia and by 7.5 times in sub-Saharan Africa.

“To be healthy, diets must have an appropriate calorie intake and consist of a variety of plant-based foods, low amounts of animal-based foods, unsaturated rather than saturated fats, and few refined grains, highly processed foods, and added sugars. The food group intake ranges that we suggest allow flexibility to accommodate various food types, agricultural systems, cultural traditions, and individual dietary preferences – including numerous omnivore, vegetarian, and vegan diets,” says co-lead commissioner Walter Willett from Harvard University.

^^^ So, what is the coastal emergency you know of? Are you speaking of sea level rise? If so, how do you know it is an emergency and what is Vancouver planning to do about it?

It's an "emergency" because the Democrats say so. Vancouver is trying to out "Ocasio-Cortez" even the looniest American politicians.

So while Vancouver is busy banning plastic straws and trying to solve a problem that's already been solved in their city, other countries look like this. Ignorance is bliss I guess.

We're not changing our ways in even the small ways that have been set out so it must come to this ... not surprised and I won't be complaining about it ... we could easily make healthier choices that would benefit the state of the world if we'd realize what "convenience" is doing to us ...
