Doug Ford ends cap and trade in Ontario
The Toronto Sun ^ | July 2018 | Antonella Artuso

Premier Doug Ford has officially revoked cap and trade — and is now starting to wrap up initiatives funded by the doomed program.

“Cap-and-trade and carbon tax schemes are no more than government cash grabs that do nothing for the environment while hitting people in the wallet in order to fund big government programs,” Ford said in a statement Tuesday. “I promised that the party with taxpayers’ dollars was over and that this would include scrapping the cap-and-trade, carbon tax slush fund.”

Please tell me that Ford will be Canada’s next Prime Minister sooner rather than later.

Don’t know but he is throwing the gauntlet down by ending cap and trade since Trudeau has said he will impose a carbon tax on provinces that don’t buckle under.

Ford has put himself at odds with Justin Trudeau and invited Trudeau to respond with his tax threat.

Hummm, seems like I have heard something similar from the mouths of the Democrats about Trump. Sometimes you just need results regardless of the scruples of the delivery system.

3 Jul: International Meetings Review: Portugal: Obama Heads Climate Change Conference in Porto
The 44th President of the United States will land in Portugal on Friday, to help companies handle environment issues.
Barack Obama will headline a major event in Porto, Portugal, the “Climate Change Leadership Porto”, which will focus on climate change and solutions to tackle this problem. The 44th President of the United States is giving a talk in the city’s Coliseu, on the 6th of July, in a highly anticipated speech, moderated by Advanced Leadership Foundation’s Juan Verde, called “A Conversation with Barack Obama: The impacts and challenges of climate changes in the World”...

The organisation is a partnership between several entities, including Taylor’s Port, Porto City Hall, Associação Comercial do Porto (a local trade association), Instituto da Vinha e do Vinho (an entity that oversees wine production), the American College in Spain, and also the Advanced Leadership Foundation, that was responsible for bringing Obama to the event. Many other companies have also joined as organisers or sponsors...

***The event’s costs with the star speaker are around one million euros (US$164million), half of which for Obama’s fee, according the Portuguese newspaper Expresso...

Doug Ford got this issue exactly right.

I don’t care if he puts ketchup on a hot dog.

You are right, Ford and Trump want to revert to the 20th century.

Just as with Trump, business and industry will be defying him on carbon and co2 issues

Oh Barack is gonna make out like a bandit. I’m surprised that he wasn’t elected the closest thing to King of the World — like Secretary General of the UN — but this will have to do, oh the poor guy living on scraps.

Even high carbon footprint ketchup on a high carbon footprint hot dog.

Some volcanic belching and Gaia will be wondering why she was worrying about humanity’s feeble fires.

Obama’s getting $80 million to attend and speak at a global warming orgy in Portugal, eh?

The world can be a stupid place sometimes.

And Gaia gives them all a pass for all the fossil fuel they will burn going there (why? why? why? if they really believe that bullshit, don’t they use Skype or GoToMeeting etc.?) because they are the Elite that will Git R Done. Well except that it’s all going to be paper.
