I am seriously contemplating leaving the Green Party of BC because of this tweet from our beloved leader

And because that link won’t work here is one that will

Now here are three images I have downloaded this weekend

Now I am not a climate scientist like Andrew Weaver. But I did watch that video on the NP link. I thought the estimates of the world’s potential refinery capacity for heavy oil was very informative. The calculations of how much oil is in the tar sands – and how long it will last – terrifying. And the idea that there will still be gas stations, but there won’t be any arctic ice appalling.

And I have one question for Andrew Weaver. What part of “keep it in the ground” did you not understand?

This from the Washington Post via Clean Energy Review – the Post is, of course, behind a paywall; sorry about that.

  1. Somebody must be pretty embarrassed about that video. The “working” link you provided doesn’t. Also, I dumped the provincial Greens when they proclaimed Uber a vital necessity for B.C. Anyone who’s followed the activities of Uber for any length of time should know that it’s not a company to view with any favour.

  2. Sorry you had problems – it still works for me. To see it go to Financial Post “Fuelled: Alberta’s Sturgeon Refinery open for business”. It was posted February 21

  3. The problem with any political party here in Canada is that none of them seem to know how to allow people to work for them: they have to be “The Decider”. Now, we can either all go off and be anarchists, but where does that get us? Weaver may (not will, but may) be weak enough that he will listen to… or feel… a rocket. The other ones (I’ve tried) don’t.
