RESPONDING TO ENVIRONMENTAL DEFENCE – ALBERTA’S CARBON TAX
RED INK + SORROW
Environmental Defence issued a report at the end of December 2018 entitled “Carbon Pricing in Alberta – A Review of its Successes and Impacts”.
They paint a rosy picture, claiming:
“The aim of the levy is to reduce carbon pollution which causes climate change, while minimising any negative impacts to the province’s economy or to lower-income Albertans.”
Friends of Science Society has issued a rebuttal report entitled “Carbon Pricing Consequences for Alberta.”
This report will demonstrate that Environmental Defence is misinformed and is misleading the public.
We will evaluate the billions wasted on coal phase-out, the continued downward-slide in investment, the faulty premises underlying carbon taxes and climate change claims.
However, no one can put a price on the human wreckage – the lives ruined, small business dreams on the rocks, farmers up against a financial wall, citizens sliding into heat-or-eat-poverty – all thanks to an imposed carbon tax burden and climate change plan driven by foreign-funded ENGOs, acting as proxies for green crony capitalists.
