And it's deja vu all over again - the goal posts just keep getting moved, but it's the same fear-mongering nonsense. These islands were all supposed to be under water 10 years ago. What's going on?? What aren't the models coming true???
As countries and the private sector make climate pledges, this island nation fears for its future

The president of Seychelles says his country remains in "grave danger" because of climate change and that developed countries must step up, as states continue to negotiate potentially more ambitious climate commitments at COP26 and the private sector pledges its own dollars to the global effort.

Wavel Ramkalawan says much of his country, which comprises more than 100 small islands in the Indian Ocean, could be erased by rising sea levels and erosion.

"We are being destroyed. But the sad thing is, it's not really the Seychelles that will be destroyed. It's the planet, it's the one planet that we have," Ramkalawan said in an interview on Sunday on Rosemary Barton Live.

He told CBC chief political correspondent Rosemary Barton that the failure of developed nations to reach a goal this year of committing $100 billion US to help the developing world fight climate change is a "disappointment."

Developed countries talked about providing billions of dollars when it comes to helping the climate, but trillions were already spent on priorities such as the military, Ramkalawan said.

I like this disclaimer that the CBC puts on every man-made climate change propaganda story now:

Our planet is changing. So is our journalism. This story is part of a CBC News initiative entitled to show and explain the effects of climate change and what is being done about it.

Yes CBC, our planet is changing. It always has, it always will. But what isn't changing is CBC's "journalism". That isn't changing at all - still reporting fear mongering nonsense and total BS. It's what the CBC does best.

Leftists also call COVID an existential crisis. If 1% of the population dies, there wont be any humans left at all. Makes one wonder what a leftist means by existential crisis. Probably has something to do with the personal existence of the brain cells that hold on to the lie. Climate change has always been low on most peoples priority list, even lower outside of the west.
It's good thing there was something that came out so that Covid didn't become an existential crisis.....peeps forget about things like that when a solution comes by in the neck of time. It's good thing climate change is a high priority in most people's priority list or it also morph into an existential crisis in the future.

COVID would never have been an 'existential crisis', with or without a vaccine or treatments. Climate is not an existential crisis either. Over the last 100 years, fewer and fewer people are dying from weather related events. No evidence exists it will ever be an existential crisis. This is more a political priority than public priority. This is why the Biden admin is failing. Too stupid too fast, destroying the economy, creating division, buying oil from Saudi instead of America which is worse.

where are the tens of millions of "climate refugees" that the "models" all predicted would be fleeing their "climate ravaged" homes due to the "climate crisis"? The UN keeps moving the goal posts and then having to re-introduce this fear-mongering nonsense, always with zero accountability or anyone saying "Hang on, you can't just keep making the same prediction and being wrong every single time, at some point this fairy tale has to end".

I've been saying this pretty consistently, through this entire man-made climate change fraud:

https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/world/te ... d=msedgntp
Terry Glavin: Climate change? We can't even address current threats to human life

Cynicism will come easily in any serious evaluation of the prospects for the COP26 jamboree in Glasgow mitigating the worst climate effects of humanity’s overloading of carbon from greenhouse gases into the planet’s upper stratosphere. But that cynicism isn’t necessarily warranted by the contradictions arising from the conference itself.
Worrying about fairy tales while actual real problems persist and hundreds of millions of people don't have any food or clean drinking water should have everyone shaking their heads. Clothe, feed and provide potable water to the masses of humanity on this earth, THEN worry about nonsense like man-made climate change. Fix what is real before trying to fix what is completely invented.

Has anyone calculated the dollar and C02 costs of our Dear Leader and his minions to attend at the latest climate crises get-together?

Remember 10 years ago - and yes 10 years ago we were already at the "tipping point" where we were all going to die but somehow didn't - when a rookie MP with a stupid "Three Musketeers" mustache and beard went ape-poop in Parliament because he wasn't allowed to go to Durban South Africa for the then "this is it, the world is ending, we must do something about the man-made climate change myth or we are all going to die" conference - and swore at the environment minister - who now under the idiot Liberals is called "the minister of environment and magical fairy tales" - anyway - poor old Justin, wasn't allowed to go to Durban on the Canadian taxpayers dime to go party with the world elite. BOO HOO! You are rich Justin, you could have paid to go on your own dime, you human piece of garbage.

I'm not sure if I'm pessimistic about climate change or not, but what really bothers me is me paying my puny bit of carbon tax, puny in the sense that it's just a drop in an ocean of carbon.

Some stats that question the good Canada's carbon taxes are doing. And this is just for coal.
Coal is the single largest source of energy production. 36% of global power and 27% of primary energy.
China accounts for 51% of coal consumption.
In second place is India at just under 12%.
The USA sits at 7%.
Canada? We're waaaay down the list.


I believe there are over 4,000 coal burning plants in China.

And what is the carbon tax in China? Does anyone know?
What is the average Chinese person paying for carbon tax to drive their gas burning SUV?
What is the average Chinese household paying in carbon tax to heat their home?

If someone can answer these questions, maybe I'll feel a bit better paying the current carbon tax, which we all know will increase.

Our federal government has been at war with its citizenry for the last 6 years. It pushed and shoved us up against the climate wall myth where it can pick our pockets freely in the shadows.

Rest assured, this is gonna cost us big time. The Chinese will be making hay and laughing.

Good points. I do not think Canadians have ever witnessed such propaganda and brainwashing as with this doomsday climate change campaign. The media is out of control with this. The government run state broadcaster here, we all know who that is, has to be the worst offender. Bob MacDonald had that quack Michael Mann on as a guest and treated him like he was a real expert. Unbelievable. All of these people are cashing in on it. Relate something to climate change and you will get funding. Its a taxpayers money gold rush. And now the entire world wants Canada and the USA to pay compensation for a made up crisis. Their goes our standard of living. Their goes our jobs. Suddenly the cost of everything is skyrocketing and out of control. There goes money in your bank account now because of inflation and great national debt. Little Canada who has no real impact on climate because our vast forests and croplands and seas eat CO2 for breakfast, lunch and supper, must now pay for the sins of the real culprits We know who they are. I guess we are now to be teachers, like Mr. Trudeau was briefly, to go and be like missionaries to spread the word of climate doom.
There have been four great glaciations in earths history and the last one formed around 2.6 million years ago and began to decline and melt about 11,700 years ago. This is known as the Pleistocene Epoch. The evidence of glaciation is all over the Okanagan. Hanging beaches in Crawford from the great Lake Penticton that once flooded the valley to huge scrapes in the bedrock and boulders all over the place. This whole area was a volcanic landscape of rock until the glaciers came and deposited all the soils we see around here today. The glaciers also created the amazing great lakes back east.

So for over two million years, Canada and some of the USA was a giant block of ice. Then suddenly, around 11,700 years ago the ice began to melt. The climate on planet earth was changing. Great torrents of water rushed everywhere, carving out the landscapes we see today. There is evidence of this everywhere in Kelowna. It seems odd now that this now roughly corresponds the the Younger Dryas impact theory. Interesting.

Whatever the cause, the melting of the ice and the warming of the planet allowed life to flourish once again. Both plant and animal. Over two million years locked in a gigantic gargantuan ice sheet, kilometers thick.
Ever since the planet begin to warm once again, it has not stopped. Perhaps we should be thankful that the glaciers are melting. They were killers. They were landscape changers. The made valleys and rivers and gouged out the sides of mountains. We would need to flee south, towards the equator.
It does seem apparent to me that certain people, such as people in the United Nations and others from first world nations, might be taking advantage of a naturally occurring phenomena for ulterior reasons. A phenomena that will likely allow life to flourish as it should be.
The day will come when the tide will turn. When the cycle begins again. We will know because the winters will be colder and longer and eventually the snow will not melt because summers never get hot any longer. They are also very short. Then they are gone all together and the mighty glaciers once again go on their march across the land.
