You are correct if you think there have been other instances on record of the oceans rising. I draw on the very informative book of Gavin Menzies in which he follows the old Chinese maps which in turn, show sea levels to be 6 foot higher than they are now. Greenland was circumnavigated as the Chinese Treasure ships tried to get under the north pole to better measure the constellations.
They left their maps with every civilization they came upon to show these same countries the way back to China so they could pay homage. The Maps still exist. The Chinese Mandarins (First Conservatives) took over and the Treasure ships were left to rot at anchor and books and star charts and other maps were destroyed. Statues ripped down.
The Paris Agreement talked about put the heads of state and their science at the same table. The charts produced showed the introduction of coal, a 19th-century technology, and the rise in carbon dioxide levels matched perfectly. It was decided to stop the use of Coal as a corrective measure. Not a cure.
The earth orbit as measured by the same constellations the Chinese used in 1423 shows us the Earth is in an elliptical but concentric orbit. Concentric because we are knocked out of the loop by Jupiter’s gravitation. The last time we were in a circular orbit was 65 years ago! Year 0 in a 10,000-year journey.
The bottom line is: We have been moving away from the sun for 65 years in a cooling off period and, we are still heating up. If this continues unabated, we will not; NOT survive as a civilization!
The Conservatives continue to ignore, deny and put out false information on Climate Change. If allowed to continue they will be the end of us.
The Conservatives knew all about climate change before 2006. Here is an exert from a post, Letter to Ralph Klein October 22, 2004

The Occupation of Alberta by Ralph Klein
Honorable Ralph Klein,
August 26, 2003
Room 307 Legislative Building,
Edmonton, AB T4K 2C6
Re:- The occupation of Alberta by Ralph Klein.Dear Premier:
The compelling information you have regarding climate change is near catastrophic and puts Alberta on the course of a climate very similar to Southern Iraq or Turkey more probably on the short term rather than the long.
Extremes in weather and unpredictable weather such as storms, hurricanes, drought and flood are parts of the scenario. Ongoing drought and forest fires are going to be the norm rather than the exception. Forest fires and unprecedented pestilence are but symptoms of the climate change rapidly coming upon us.
Lakes will become mud holes and rivers will dry up. (The Prince George area has massive beetle infestation because the temperatures haven’t dropped to the -40 that is required to kill them off; All in the last 5 years!) The extending drought has already caused the earth to move away from house foundations around Alberta causing them to crack. I would think any one who has built in the last 6 years has recourse on the Government because of a lack of proper building standards to account for these known changes.
When your Environment department confirmed the above they also said studies were being made on how to use the unusable (un-potable) rivers of water from the Viking aquifer. Considering the oil companies have been accessing this “bad” water for year’s further studies would only be for the purpose of stalling for time.
Oil companies site only the added expense, by comparison to surface water, as being the only real draw back! I recall people in Parkland County complaining their water wells went dry after seismic went through their region. They speculated the seismic had damaged the upper water aquifer. Your response was less than caring. “Prove it” you said.
Knowing what you know about the weather change and dwindling water resource it is irresponsible for you to allow oil companies to use any drinkable water for injection into the wells for oil recovery! Your water plan amounts to a charge on Alberta residences for the water taken by oil companies and pumped down hole.When do the oil companies start paying for the damages they have done and the water they have already ruined or wasted?
It seems to be your plan to stall full public disclosure of information on climate change until the oil is gone, the drinking water is gone and the oil companies have moved on?
The Canadian History.
As a one time Conservative Riding secretary and of an age greater than 90% of Canadians I offer this glimpse into our past. More directly the Conservatives have known of climate change for more than 20 years. Insead of putting in a cure they embarked on a major course of mis-information.
The Liberals built Canada with little interruption to their base until 1919 to 1937 in which case the American Republicans working through the Morman Church, helped them establish “The United Farmers of Alberta” This party morphed itself into the Veterans and Active force, 1944 to 1948, again the US Republicans were fully involved. This morphed into the Conservatives which found a hard landing after Diefenbaker and the Avro-Arrow. (You now know the reason Diefenbaker scrapped the Arrow in Canada allowing the US to take up the design) and, Harper sold off the Canadian Wheat Board to US interest in leaving office. Related:
They again morphed into the Progressive Conservatives. This party was started by Peter Lougheed and company. Peter broke away from the Republicans, in fact, took on US oil interests in Alberta in the much-maligned NATIONAL ENERGY PROGRAM. Peter became the most popular Premier not only of Alberta but, all of Canada.
When Klein took over he doubled down with the US Republicans. All this happening while the Wild Rose Party kept the original foundation going with the Church. Now we had two political parties which could appear as opposition, one extreme and one tame by comparison. Doing what they do best, played both ends against the middle.
Notably, Klein started the bleed on the Heritage Savings and Trust by freezing the fund at 5% profit taking all above into General Revenue to support his 10% flat tax. The loss to Albertans 760 billion dollars most of which went directly back to US parent companies. Norway over the same period banked over 1 trillion dollars.
Take a look at The Huffington Post” to see the teamwork us/Canadian and the treatment you get if you enter an opinion on US politics.
In a final analysis I see the US is in a position to take over our country! By putting in a Conservative Government again will facilitate the end of our Dairy Marketing board and any other institutions that may hinder this process.
As if in confirmation of the above post
Jason Kenny backed the running of a Trump campaign worker in the Alberta by-election.
“In November 2016, Dreeshen and another conservative political activist penned a lengthy article in the Hill Times in Ottawa chronicling their work on Trump’s campaign.”
