Scientific American continues its descent into partisan polemics with “Wealthy Countries Have Blown Through Their Carbon Budgets”. And “Fast, Deep Cuts in Emissions Are Needed to Avoid ‘Climate Time Bomb’”. And “See How Much Climate Change Has Cost Different Countries”. Oh, and “Fascism’s History Offers Lessons about Today’s Attacks on Education” which, you don’t need to be told, portrays Republican governor Ron DeSantis as Mussolini.
Also Joe Biden’s Trade War III rages on, with “The threat of new US solar tariffs is back”.
Back in March we ridiculed the fantasy “Canadian Northern Corridor”, only to have an alert reader inform us that a similar project was planned with much fanfare back in 1967. Back then it was called the Mid-Canada Development Corridor” and nobody heard of global warming. But just as today, nothing ever happened.
Oh, and on the climate hypocrisy front, the Canadian environment ministry is pretending to mend its ways after the string of high-living travel scandals in our public sector like the Governor-General’s $1.3-million Middle Eastern jaunt complete with “beef wellington, pork tenderloin and carpaccio” on the plane and over $500 for lemons and limes, and the Prime Minister’s $160,000 Christmas vacation (despite spending $20k a month on his government lakeside cottage), turned out also to include “Canadian delegates to a climate change conference booked a luxury resort rated one of the least environmentally-friendly hotels in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, records show. Room rates ranged from $405 to $1,300 a night at the resort with a mediocre Green Star rating but 13 bars.” They do feel your pain at high energy prices… just not personally.
