WITTEVRONGEL: The oil and gas industry is helping rein in Alberta’s deficit. Can it also help lower GHGs?

“If we want to have a chance of hitting this ambitious target, we need to shift the narrative from blaming the oil and gas industry to embracing it as an integral part of the solution.”

Alberta’s expected deficit will be less than half what was projected in February, largely thanks to the rebound of the oil and gas industry. Expanded oilsands production, improved oil prices, and increased oil and gas investment have resulted in higher than anticipated resource revenues. In fact, the province’s revised royalty estimates are now triple the original sums

    “Climate Change” is just a renaming of “global warming”. (Just ask what is meant by “climate change”, and follow up with “how does this “climate change” (if there is such a thing) happen? What causes it? The phrase “greenhouse gas” for CO2 says it all. Global warming was thoroughly discredited over the last 40 years or so (our own Prof. Ross McKittrick and businessman Steve MacIntosh (sp?) were significant parties to that. The globalists went silent for 2 or 3 years and then out came “Climate Change”. Its just a vehicle to advance the globalist agenda.

    Further more, its a trace gas, and any “emissions” of it dont all stay in the atmosphere due to such things as photosynthesis in plants. Back about 20 years ago or so, global temps were staying flat while China was building 2 large coal-fired electric plants per week (while not signing any of these “agreements”). (India was a significant “polluter” as well) Its all BS by paid clowns spouting nonsense about “science” while ignoring the actual science. (Bill Nye comes to mind).

    Kenney is a globalist. It only recently occurred to me and I googled “jason kenney bilderbergers”. He attended at least 2 of their meetings, as recently as 2014, while he was a federal minister, and took Poloz (head of the BAnk of Canada) with him where they both had private talks with someone or other. (Remember that Allison Redford was invited to one of their secretive clambakes and attended.) If memory serves, Brad Wall, while he was premier of Sask. met the Queen for some reason or other (I recall the picture in one of the papers). Murray Edwards cashed out and moved to London England, if memory serves. The City of London is the financial hub of the world. The Rothschields have an estate some couple of dozens of Kms from London, England.

    There is a fairly recent very interesting interview of Kenney by Danielle Smith that I found on the internet (cant remember if it was audio/video of her and audio only of Kenney (perhaps when she was a host on QR77, when the Covid lockdowns were happening) that is very much worth a listen. Is Kenney stupid? or Evil? Why has the Medical College gotten away from preventing treatment of “covid” (whatever it might be) during its early stages? On pain of threatening doctors who attempt early treatment with the loss of their medical license?

    When Trump was cured in a couple of days after symptoms appears, and his friend Rudy Guilani was cured in 1 day. And even Joe Rogan got medical treatment and by the 5th day after symptoms appeared, tested negative for Covid (his treatment included Ivermectine, a known drug with virtually no side effects that has been prescribed for other things for decades–but doctors are being prohibited from prescribing it on pain of discipline from the College). But the doctors for these guys wont be worried about losing their licenses, and I am sure just rolled up their sleeves, got to work, and got them cured.

    This should bring out the “conspiracy theory” denizens (as Dan Bongino would call them). As some wag once said: Just because you are paranoid, doesnt mean they arent out to get you. These waters run deep. We need to push back. However and whenever we can. Hopefully the AMericans will get this ship righted–perhaps by criminal prosecutions of their villains that are lurking in the shadows directing our villains. Perhaps some jail time or firing squads by the military would be a good start.

    Net Zero Emissions is Unobtainable . . . a complete Fantasy ! ! !

    Carbon Sequester is another idiot proposal . . .
    imagine hiding the gas that enables plants to Grow . . . this is just so friggin insane.

    We live in an upside down world . . . CO2 helps to stimulate Plant Production, more CO2 = more Food for the Growing Billions living on the Planet.
    Perhaps like Stalin their Goal is to Starve us out ?

    Molten Salt Reactors (MSRs) are another key in a carbon neutral future. Alberta could lead the way on this as well.

Guest column by Ven Venkatachalam and Lennie Kaplan of the Canadian Energy Centre British Columbia has been producing oil and natural gas since 1952. In fact, as of 2018, BC produced 32% of Canada’s natural gas production and 2% of Canada’s conventional daily oil production. British Columbia collects royalties from oil and gas development, supporting the economic prosperity in the province.

There are now dueling petitions circulating demanding action against eco-activist David Suzuki for saying if governments don't take drastic action on climate change, pipelines would be blown up. At an Extinction Rebellion event in Victoria, BC in November Suzuki crossed the line between peaceful activism and extremism, opponents say. “There are going to be pipelines blown up if o

In mid-November, a handful of Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs in BC spearheaded yet another attempt — thwarted by the RCMP — to scuttle Coastal GasLink’s $6.6 billion natural gas pipeline. The half-completed pipeline will run 670 km from Dawson Creek in northeast BC to Kitimat on the west coast, there to be processed in an $18-billion terminal financed by LNG Canada’s joint partnershi

We the undersigned call on the Canadian government to immediately cease all payouts to media companies.

No Media Bailouts

The fourth estate is critical to a functioning democracy in holding the government to account. An objective media can't maintain editorial integrity when it accepts money from a government we expect it to be critical of.

We the undersigned call on the Canadian government to immediately cease all payouts to media companies.
