"From Failure to Failure"
|"Sold Out" Indeed -|
The federal climate commissioner has passed judgment on our governments' efforts to fight climate change. It's a well-deserved "F."
Despite three decades of effort, Canada's carbon emissions have risen 20 per cent since 1990, the country remains unprepared for climate disasters and recent subsidies for the oil and gas sector have not delivered promised emission reductions, according to new reports from the federal government's chief environmental watchdog.
That damning verdict applies not only to past Liberal and Conservative governments but to the current government led by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
"Canada was once a leader in the fight against climate change. However, after a series of missed opportunities, it has become the worst performer of all G7 nations since the landmark Paris Agreement on climate change was adopted in 2015," said Environment and Sustainable Development Commissioner Jerry V. DeMarco in a media statement.
Yeah, that's Justin Trudeau he's talking about, Canada's greenwasher in chief. This bullshit artist has been in power since 2015 and the "landmark Paris Agreement." On Justin Trudeau's watch Canada has become the worst performer of all G7 nations. The Worst.
"We can't continue to go from failure to failure; we need action and results, not just more targets and plans."
