CHP Canada recognizes that pollution is a serious problem and that immediate steps must be taken to address: air pollution from particulate emissions, NOX, SOX and Volatile Organic Chemicals (VOCs); water pollution from untreated sewage discharges, ballast and waste dumping at sea; and pollution of both water and soil from overuse of chemicals, including fertilizers. However we also know that CO2 and water vapour — the main so-called “greenhouse gases” — are not pollutants. Both are essential to agriculture—and indeed, to all life on earth. Furthermore the global temperature does not follow CO2 levels (as IPCC computer models assume), it leads it. That is, higher global temperatures cause rising CO2 levels, not the other way around.
Canadians are legitimately concerned about the environment, but their concern for protection of the environment has been seriously distorted by propaganda campaigns, such as the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and Al Gore’s Oscar-winning “documentary” An Inconvenient Truth.
Despite the release of the Climategate emails from the University of East Anglia, many Canadians still don’t know that several leading UN scientists have either been discredited or changed their stories.
Many don’t realize that in September, 2009, the National Post reported that Prof. Mojib Latif, one of the leading climate modellers in the world, revealed in Geneva, “at the UN’s World Climate Conference no less — an annual gathering of the so-called ‘scientific consensus’ on man-made climate change — that the Earth has not warmed for nearly a decade and that we are likely entering ‘one or even two decades during which temperatures cool.’”
His statements are all the more dramatic because he is the recipient of several international climate-study prizes and a lead author for the IPCC, who contributed significantly to the IPCC’s last two five-year reports that stated unequivocally, remember, that man-made greenhouse emissions are causing the planet to warm dangerously.
A majority of climatologists and meteorologists today agree that global temperatures are primarily driven by solar activity. The increased solar activity of cycle 23 caused rising temperatures in the 1990s; decreased solar activity in cycle 24 probably presages an era of global cooling—some even predict a new “ice age.”
Danish statistician Bjorn Lomborg has written in his scholarly book Cool It! that schemes like the Kyoto Protocols, “cap-and-trade” carbon-credit exchanges and/or carbon taxes will do more harm than good: by crippling our industrial capacity, they will hamper our ability to deal with real pollution. At the same time, they will deprive Third World countries of the development they need to lift their people out of poverty, disease, and starvation.
CHP Canada’s better solution is to use the resources that would be wasted fighting “climate change” to clean up the real pollution that negatively impacts the lives and health of Canadians, leaving future generations with a better economy, as well as cleaner air, water and soil. Funds for such projects can be made available through the CHP’s Infrastructure Program.
CHP Canada urges you not to vote for any party that continues to perpetuate this phoney crisis, or that plans to introduce any new carbon tax or cap-and-trade tax policy, while pretending that this will somehow benefit you, Canada, or the world.
CHP Canada would promote renewable energy initiatives.
CHP’s Better Solution for the Environment
Current Government strategy: (and how it falls short)
The Conservative government—like the Liberals, NDP and Green Party—has been duped by anti-industrial “global warming” propaganda. They are marching lock-step into policies that will be disastrous—especially if global cooling emerges as the real threat.
Opposition strategy: (and how it falls short)
Identical to the government’s misguided acceptance of “global warming” (now called “climate change”).
The CHP’s Better Solution:
Resources wasted on attempts to control climate should instead be used to clean up and control real pollution. Funds for such projects can be made available through the CHP’s Infrastructure Program (q.v.).
CHP’s better solution is to use the resources that would be spent fighting “climate change” to clean up real air, water, and soil pollution, leaving future generations with greater health and opportunity.
