Columnist’s climate rants simply boring propaganda

To the Editor,

Re: Lakes research shutdown nonsense, Science Matters, July 12.

The recent column from the David Suzuki Foundation does not promote any positive ideas.

The whining and complaining is something that we do not expect from an environmental organization that is funded by donation. The slamming of political groups by this organization leaves one to wonder how many bridges they are burning in regards to the funding by people from certain parties.

The stories the David Suzuki Foundation are broadcasting are not in the best interest of the young people who read the nonsense.

We live in a democracy where the people in power were voted into a position to make some choices for everyone.

To continually look for evidence of political dirty laundry and then parade it has become repetitious, boring and ineffective.

The terms ‘greenhouse gases’ and ‘global responsibility’ and ‘climate change’ have become the tools of the Suzuki Foundation.

This propaganda is now being used by the media and politicians to control the resources of this country. Who and where we ship our resources to in the future will determine our quality of life.

The resources will be sold and delivered, but the choices that exclude Asia will leave us with one option, the U.S.

The U.S. is controlling your thoughts through pollution propaganda. The ‘terms of pollution’ have created an anxious population of people who believe they need to stand up and voice their opinion.

The ‘green Canadian’ is a hypocritical title, as we are known to be one of the worst polluters per capita on the planet. And as we support the underground hoarding of crude oil in the U.S. and they burn it to the tune of 19.5 million barrels every day.

Is it wise to pipe oil to the U.S. when they are so far in debt to China? Our Canadian quality of life will not remain the same without either the U.S. or China as trading partners.

The China debt will not be on hold forever, something will happen soon. The Chinese Yuan is being held low for a reason.
