  1. In the Michael Schellenberger presentations I've seen so far, he does back up what he says with graphs and charts. If you claim he's merely an uneducated, unqualified "personality" then surely must have the same opinion of people like Al Gore and Greta Thunberg. The same could apply to Jennifer Granholm, US Energy Secretary. She has a Batchelor of Arts degree and a Juris Doctor from Harvard Law School. No degrees in science that I've seen. The world gets constantly lectured by woke politicians and brainless celebrities like DeCaprio about climate change. Schellenberger brings up accurate facts about wind and solar that we should all think about. They take up an enormous amount of land which does have an impact on wildlife and the environment. They cannot produce power on demand. There are valid unanswered questions about what happens to this equipment at the end of its life cycle. If you want the entire world to go all in with wind and solar, I can't begin to fathom how much resources will be consumed, how much wildlife will be displaced and/or face extinction. Wind and solar still require vast amounts of resources in the form of infrastructure and mining. Canada, the US and Mexico do have the capacity to support our own oil and gas needs without OPEC. Our political leaders just don't have the will. Nuclear is the way to go. Not perfect but way more reliable than depending on steady wind and sunshine. Schellenberger voted for Biden too.
  2. Don't take it from me, take it from Michael Schellenberger. I'm not entirely against wind and solar, I'm just not convinced they will solve all or most of our problems. Not to mention the problems that are created by wind and solar. There is a very interesting fact stated in this video regarding Germany and their rush to wind and solar. Had they invested the same amount in nuclear, they would be getting 100% of its energy for electricity from a zero-emission source.
  3. This article from Lorne Gunter sums it pretty well. There was no real threat from the convoy, it was only in the minds of some Liberals. GUNTER: Tardy Trudeau shows comtempt, again (msn.com)
  4. I'm pointing out that even with all the output from those wind farms there is still an energy crisis in the UK. I am all for domestic oil and gas production. I'll shrug off your latest insult just knowing you're the kind of person that wouldn't dare say it to anyone's face.
  5. Yes, I agree with that. In the meantime, people are going to have to deal with a severe energy crisis. Eat or heat?
  6. Wow, here I am putting up a link from CNN. It does seem like there is currently an energy crisis in the UK. Same old story, moving way too fast without a viable alternative ready to take up the slack. UK energy crisis is 'bigger than the pandemic' | CNN Business So with all this abundant wind energy, why am I still reading articles about the UK energy crisis?
  7. Do you feel the same way about people that didn't want to be forced to get vaxxed? Or do you, like Trudeau, feel that way about everyone that has the audacity to disagree with you?
  8. It's pretty clear to me that he did mean these things with regards to those that didn't want to be forced to vax. Misogynist? Racist? Very harsh and he didn't mince words. I guess it's par for the course for a man that has led a pretty pampered lifestyle and when people stand up to him he won't tolerate it.
  9. Ok, I found the same clip with English subtitles. Near the end he asks: "Do we tolerate these people?"
  10. He said it in French. He then denied ever saying it on the witness stand.
  11. Please sit back, take a deep breath and relax. Do you seriously consider everyone on the political right to be just like Nazis? You basically call Nationalist Hitler? "Treat them the same way our grandfathers did"? Don't you think you've gone overboard here?
  12. Mark Dice also had a great take on Joy Reid and her latest foolish opinion. I think it's safe to say that virtually every identifiable ethnic group/society or region had their share of violence at some point in history. Indigenous people in this continent were no different.
  13. In comparison, AOC is a relative newcomer to the world of politics and is a media rock star. She has not shown any signs of great intelligence or even that she is of average intelligence. She is like an amoeba compared to Clarence Thomas. I have yet to see any real examples of white privilege either. It doesn't help the argument when certain wealthy, people of colour who happen to have a platform to speak on talk about white privilege. Like Joy Reid for example.
  14. If guns are bought in a legal way, why shouldn't law abiding Americans have the right to hunt and have the right to own firearms for personal protection? In some cities, violent criminals are quickly let back out onto the streets on a regular basis (largely by Democrats). If guns are stored properly, what's the problem with having a collection? I have way more concern for firearms in the hands of criminals than I do in the hands of law-abiding citizens. Even free speech in the US is under attack. "I disagree with you, but I will defend your right to say it" has gone by the wayside. It should be pointed out that dictatorships have a history of disarming their populations.
  15. 'Intelligence' experts refuse to apologize for smearing Hunter Biden story (nypost.com) Hunter Biden story is Russian disinfo, dozens of former intel officials say - POLITICO Ex-intel officials silent over letter claiming Russian involvement in Hunter Biden laptop saga | Washington Examiner I was primarily referring to China and Russia with regard to Hunter. Ukraine is not hostile to the US, but the government there has a very well-deserved reputation for corruption. Most business done with the Ukraine government will not be handled openly and honestly.
  16. I agree with a lot of what you say except the part about the extreme right in the conservative movement. These days, being pro-life can be considered extremist when it is not. I think of the Chretien/Martin era when they were very aggressive in trying to balance the budget, and they were successful. Many of us didn't like how they did it at the time, but it did work. Currently, any Conservative politician that would propose these same kinds of measures would immediately be labeled a right-wing extremist People and the MSM have always been far more forgiving to the Liberals than they would to the Conservatives, even when both governments are enacting virtually identical policies. Liberal energy policy drives me nuts. The same can be said for the majority of democratic leaders world-wide. They are moving way too fast without a reliable alternative in place. Yes to more hybrids, yes to nuclear powered container ships. Yes to more nuclear energy. I think it makes more sense to adapt to the climate than to squander trillions while China and India sit back and laugh. John Robson had a good article years ago suggesting that Conservatives might have more success if they actually were more conservative and not emulating the Liberals.
  17. That's just not true. During the 2020 election, this story was downplayed by the MSM and very aggressively suppressed by big tech. And when I say downplayed, they lied and said it was Russian disinformation, nothing to see here. As we now know, that in itself was a lie. Fifty high ranking officials in the intelligence field either got it totally wrong, or they too lied. I'm pretty sure it's the latter. For the sake of comparison, the MSM did push Trump/Russia collusion for years almost nonstop when the entire story was clearly a nothingburger. The Hunter Biden story should be a big story when the drug addict son of the current sitting President rakes in millions of dollars from hostile foreign dictatorships. Evidence strongly indicates money does end up with "the big guy". How does that not sound like being compromised?
  18. Things are a bit sketchy with Ilhan Omar and her family. Remember the husband/brother controversy? Who knows how many relatives are working for her and in what capacity? Rep. Ilhan Omar slammed yet again for ‘anti-Semitic’ tweets (nypost.com) It's not a secret that she hates Israel among other things.
  19. What is frustrating for many of us is the complete 180-degree change in what leading public health officials told the public at the start about the efficacy of masks, then later told the public that masks were effective protection against Covid.
  20. Would the world be a better place if there had never been any kind of industrial revolution? It did lift countless millions out of poverty and give them a better standard of living. I can't speak for you, but I don't want to live a third world lifestyle in a cold climate like Canada has. People like Greta should be thankful for all the luxuries that surround her, thanks to oil and gas and the industrial revolution.
  21. This is long overdue and someone as awful as Ilhan Omar should never have been holding any kind of public office in the first place. She literally does come from arguably the worst sh*thole country on the planet and yet she never seemed grateful to have been taken in by the US.
  22. Is that your position? It is perfectly legal to enter the US without going through an open Port of Entry that is staffed with CBP officers? Crossing the border via foot, vehicle, or air without visiting an official port of entry (cbp.gov) If you are entering the U.S. through the Northern or Southern border, you must enter through an open Port of Entry staffed with CBP Officers. The only exceptions to this would be if you are entering with automatic I-68 program status, in which case your yearly registration and telephonic notification of entry is sufficient. There are currently no programs in place for individuals entering the U.S. by foot (i.e. backpackers, hikers, jogger's etc.) or air that exempts them from this entry requirement. Failure to enter through an open staffed port is considered an illegal entry and can result to you being fined and removed from the United States. Looks like you're incorrect on this according to the Customs and Border Patrol's own website.
  23. Foul mouthed? How about your own posts on here? Hook, line and sinker, you have totally bought into Joe's hilarious MAGA shtick. (He came up with that all on his own y'know.)😉
  24. This video concerns grocery prices but it's pretty much the same thing with big oil profits. This thing about record profits is a bit misleading when we have to consider that costs have gone up substantially for everyone.
