Clark Trudeau??

The Liberals' simplistic slogans are feeding a radical campaign that has cost Canada billions of dollars and tens of thousands of jobs.

“The environment and the economy go hand in hand.” —Environment Minister Catherine McKenna, March 10, 2018
The Book of Twitter

It is the most frequent iteration of our climate crusader minister and her fellow environmental superhero, “Clark” Trudeau — that the environment and the economy are halves of one project, that they go together, and in their most favoured formulation, that they go “hand in hand.”

First, the concepts are each too vast, complex and extraordinarily various for any attempt at assigning a one-to-one equivalence. The environment is, when you stop to think about it, literally everything there is except you; and even then you are part of the environment of everyone else. The economy, while not infinite like its partner in this spurious equation, is nonetheless comprised of millions or billions of subordinate elements and interactions.

Essentially Ms. McKenna’s simplistic slogan tries to pass off as a truism, a self-evident axiom, an impossible-to-achieve, equal and mutual correspondence between two of the most intricately dynamic, various systems known to peoplekind. What a dream that is.

As explanatory or descriptive of the dynamics of a modern industrial nation, it is simplistic mush.

Something many of us have been saying for a very long time…

Climate adaptation, not carbon taxes should be focus of debate

The Insurance Bureau of Canada wants to start a conversation about the effects of climate change that has nothing to do with charging Canadians a carbon tax.

And it’s something we should start paying attention to.
