Carbon Capture, O’Toole style.

Carbon Capture, O’Toole style.

Carbon is captured from cement plants or industry in general then it is pumped down hole into an existing oil field

where, acting as a solvent it mixes with the oil present there.

This puts the field under pressure. When the valve is opened there is a rush of Carbon Dioxide desribed as sounding like a jet plane. This will vent for a few hours then, oilshows up boiling because it is saturated with carbon dioxide.

Everything that is captured is turned loose again!

O’Toole has tapped into a Harper scheme without knowing what it is.

Critique of the English Debate

It is time to put the Liberals in strong! Trudeau made a deal with Quebec to put 8 billion dollars into their child care program. Today the Premier of Quebec said “it wasn’t needed” It is time to clean the slate of Conservatives!

My view is it is all Verbal diarrhea Can you Imagine what kind of shape we would be in now if O’Toole was leading us through this pandemic? We would have been on the “let God Sort it out” train for the duration. #leadership

Critique of the English Debate.

Much was left out and curtailed by the Conservatives because of their accounting methods!

They made much of “no Conditions”

Conservatives put all the incoming cash into General Revenues then, spend at random out of that account.

Health payments from Ottawa would go into General Revenues if they had their way!

Ottawa has asked for an accounting that health care money was spent on health care and, the Conservatives don’t care for this.

On the Quebec pipeline pushed by O’Toole.  Firstly Quebec lost a major electrical contract with the USA .  This, leaves them short billions.  They have suggested they will accept a pipeline from the west if, the west will agree to buy their surplus generation.   Unfortunately, Alberta’s electricity is owned by the cities, Edmonton (EPCOR) and Calgary (ENMAX) this supplements our tax base so, there is no way wean work with PQ on this item. Quebec, on the other hand picked up 3 billion a year from California when Ford cancelleld Ontario’s cap and trade program. However, that should be gone now, as in timed out.

O’Toole is fanning the flames of dissent trying to start something with a  pipeline. 

Irving Oil Company gets it’s oil off the ocean on the east coast and supplies Montreal refinery with I think, finished product.    Montreal Refinery gets its bulk oil in over the
Great Lakes.  Both these systems are far less expensive than is pipeline construction and oil paying for it.

So the debate went round and round, the truth was never heard.  Trudeau kept quite though the whole exchange, showing good sense. He did point out the 8 billion paid into Quebec’s daycare was the first province to get it, the plan is in mothion to cover all the other provinces the same way, to scale.

Trudeau came under attack on the Kabul people left behind. He barely got out that  20,000 people were on their way using a third country and Jagmeet Singh

 jumped in with the complaint about 20 or so people remaining even though Trudeau said they were working on it.  Sing spent the night trying to make a hit he lost ground from the French debate.

Mr. Blanchet made a good show for PQ even when he was on the defensive from Jagmeet.

Jagmeet bounced Trudeau on having the worse record of the G7.  Actually Canada has the lowest GDP in the G7, Must be what he was talking about. 

Canada has the 10th largest economy in the world, valued at around $U.S. 1.74 trillion as of 2019.

And, that is pretty dam good!

More on the G7 Comparison. 

In 2019 — the first year of the federal carbon pricing system, commonly called the “carbon tax” — Canada produced 730 megatonnes of carbon dioxide emissions, an increase of one megatonne — or 0.2 per cent — over 2018.

However, the economy grew faster than emissions did in 2019 — which means the country’s “emissions intensity” is lower than it has been in the past.

The 730 megatonnes of emissions recorded in 2019 is slightly higher than the 723 megatonnes Canada churned out in 2015, the year Trudeau first took office. This was because of increased industry!

From <>

O’Toole has said that, if he’s elected, he will push the reset button on Canada’s climate plan, returning to the previous national target of reducing emissions by 30 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030. Trudeau said O’Toole threatens to drag Canada back to “the Harper years,” when former prime minister Stephen Harper committed to less ambitious environmental action.

Typical Conservative who, a month ago had no plan at all has decided to go back to 2005 numbers because they are lower. The man seems to want to play it bent as a first choice!

From <>

“We have to win back trust on this issue — we haven’t met the expectations of Canadians on climate change,” O’Toole said. He defended his lower target, saying his plan is actually doable and would not tank Canada’s resource-rich economy.

He could have started with the current truth if he wanted to win back trust!

From <>

“Mr. O’Toole can’t even convince his party that climate change is real because they voted against that,” Trudeau said, referring to a failed Conservative party convention motion to declare that “climate change is real.”

From <>

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh also piled on, saying “Justin Trudeau has failed all of us. You had six years and you’ve got the worst track record in the G7 after six years.”  jAGMEET can go sit with O’Toole.

From <>

Canada’s housing stock is among the priciest in the world, with the average price of a single family home costing well over $1 million in the Toronto and Vancouver urban areas. According to the Canadian Real Estate Association’s MLS system, the average price of a home in Canada is $716,000, an eye-popping figure that means property ownership is a distant dream for many.

“There’s a housing crisis and Mr. Trudeau is making it worse,” O’Toole said. To address this, the Conservative housing plan commits to building one million new homes over three years while easing mortgage requirements and making more federal land available for development.  The point is, you have watched for 3 weeks while our lumber out of the midwest BC and US has been Torched.  This was our lumber inventory!  Lumber is now a semi precious commodity and housing is being built on current costs, older housing is going up to reflect the value of the lumber in them.  Don’t sell cheap.  In answering this O’Toole decides to game it. Make a deal with the most fluent party of our population giving them tax concession or access to cheap money.

What’s wrong with O’Toole?

He’s all over the place switching ideas and positions on just about everything as he moves forward In my reasoning, I can see a 5th wave and a 6th wave of the Corono Virus before it is done with it. This beasty is better at survival than we are. It will continue to change upwards than down as it doesn’t want to kill off its host.

Can you imagain a Federal Conservative Governmenet looking after you in these comming events? Hell, Kenny and Shandro can’t even get a vaccine passport moving! O’ Toole says he is againt it. Having a choices is more important than living or dying!

O’Toole was given the leadership by the extream right wing of the Conservative Party! None of their policies has shown up in his cuddly converations, to date. He was very proud to be accepted by the ugly right wing. It means, Corporate rule.

We continue to have troubles with the post media who were invited into Canada by Stephen Harper. The Calgary Herald will allow me to post then, change my posts to repetitave garbage. It seems to be their level on most things.

Why the new dam in BC?

Weatherford Project detailed.

First Published SUNDAY, APRIL 01, 2012  
Weatherford Project the start of a gigantic transfer of water to the US. The whole program is adequately explained here: NAWAPA  (Credit to Richard Weatherhill)  This #video is a US concept shown in its best light bought into whole heartedly by the Harper and Prentice Conservatives. (This is the US view of what they want)
The *Conservative Government has a fully mechanically engineered project sitting on their shelf from the 1980s.  It is as valid today as when it was paid for. Harper has removed the Navigable water protection from the River making it all possible.  It’s in play now!  #Trudeau killed the move.]

This is the Weatherford project, the design being to move up to 2/3rds of the flow of the Peace River into the USA! 
#The project has 8 large electrical lift stations in it, each one using the power of a large city.  This is immense and under a Conservative Government taxpayers will pay for the infrastructure and private companies will take home the profits.
Under a “good” Liberal Government the price of construction would be carried by those who need the water, not those who supply it.  Think here of our present electricity debacle!

Government’s direction will be handled by private industry and paid for by the Alberta Taxpayers.
For those of you in southern Alberta; the St. Mary’s system and involved in the Western Irrigation District; Did you sign up for this?  Many of you were kicked off the board while others with cash were able to buy rock pile so they could claim adjoining property thereby being put on the board.

Mike Cardinal reworked the Western Irrigation board while he was selling off Crown Grazing Lands on the East Slope of the Rockies to the Agra Food Industry.  Rules of water ownership run First in Line, First in Time and these properties are where all of our groundwater used for drinking originates!  
When a River drops to 1/3 of its flow it goes stagnant, the river dies.  Kenny is okay with this as is a long list of Conservatives before him.

The US has announced it will build a rail from our North Coast to the US to move oil.  Why would they do this when they are oil self-sufficient.   I think rail is to move The Peace River by rail into the US!

As far as the dam goes ; It can only produce 1100 mw. That means it cannot pay for itself. It will however create a sump from which to draw huge amounts of water. This is what you get if O’Toole gets in. These plans cover every major river and lake in Canada, not just Alberta.

The Conservative plan to export (give away) our bulk water is under way!


#Bills C48 and C69 strip away all the Conservative Controls they put on Canada’s water (Removed by Harper/Kenny) over all the water in Canada, not just the Peace River. Under the agreements, the US has the first call on the water. If there is enough left for one nation, the US gets it. We will be buying our water from the USA if O’Toole gets in and he will eliminate those two bills, It won’t be Nestle it will be Conservative individuals getting the graft from the water sales.

They have been after this for more than 20 years! If you set down for an evening read of you will find what #water titles I could find at the time some of the names on them will be interesting.

The Dam they are building now in northern BC will produce 1100 MW, not enough to pay for itself. It’ purpose is that of a sump, from which to draw water to ship south by pipeline. 6′ diameter pipe! This is why the bills C46 and C69 were so important to the Conservatives!.

Alberta–The Details: Haper setting up to export our water!
May 22, 2007Harper and the US dominated Fraser institute have made their declaration to include bulk water export into the NAFTA agreement! 39th Parliament, 1st Session The Standing Committee on International Trade has the honor .

And, back to the present. If O’Tool should get in, he will do away with bills C46 and C69 and rivers and lakes across Canada will become cash cows for Conservative insiders.

Bill C69 the Conservatives want to get rid of:

#Bill C69 did away with two pieces of Harper/Kenny legislation that was irresponsible, to say the least. 

Following is the effect of Bill C69

First off  National Energy Board Act:  This was legislation that allowed Harper to become a dictator in his own mind at least.  Any conflict with a native group could be set aside by the Minister in charge.   In action, it caused endless delays in the West coast pipeline.  Reason?  The US does not want us shipping off the west coast it will cut deeply into their markets in Indochina and China and, they will not be able to use their oil supply on or off as a bargaining chip!
Secondly: Canadian Navigable Waters Act; was changed by Harper/Kenny to a free-for-all.  One outstanding item is the BC dam on the Peace River.  A navigable river, the dam was built and was criticized for not being able to produce enough electricity to pay for its self.  It was however built to create a sump in the Peace River suitable for drawing large amounts of water out of.   This brings me to the #Weatherford Project.   So named after the company who designed and specked it.
Weatherford is immensely designed to move 2/3rds of the flow of the Peace River to the US border.  If Conservatives build this Canadian’s will pay for the build so the US can get cheap water.   If the Peace River has been turned back into navigable water that project is dead.
What do I mean by immense?  The design calls for 3 large diameter pipelines and 6 pumping stations.  Each pumping station to use the electrical power of a city!
The Conservatives again looking after US interests, not Canada’s!

How Conservatives Manage Climate.

Conservatives will write a glossy set of laws governing climate or any other thing. Then, they will fire the department that is to administer those laws. Usually there are not enough people left to handle the phone traffic loading on more inconvenience. There is no one left to enforce the laws.

The next step of the plan come in with their response. They pull out this set of shiny laws and say “look at the good things we did” and “this proves it’s not our fault.

It’s hard enough to work with this on a provincial level, on a Federal Level?

Conservatives do not have a climate change plan nor, do they want one!

The Conservatives when faced with an environment problem, will write a new set of laws to cover whatever situation they happen to have. Then, they will fire the staff or most of the staff who were to answer phones or enforce laws.
Then, when taking complaints from the public, will parade out this crisp new set of laws saying “look what we did!” and “this proves it is not our fault” Not only is this done on environmental issues it is done any time the need arises.

The Climate of Residential Schools

Yesterday at 12:29 PM ·
REBECCA AGAIN: And another one from the same pen:
When I did my Masters in Defence studies, I wrote my thesis on the Vietnam War, but on my own I did a “second thesis” on Aboriginal history in Canada, specifically the Hurons, the Algonquins and the Mohawks and the events leading to the James Bay accord. But to do so I had to look back and review the whole story. Some of the things I remember having consulted and read hundreds of pages from Archives Canada.
The situation on the Reserves was catastrophic, kids’ mortality was much higher than amongst the general population due to mistreatment from parents, starvation, sickness etc; the Covid of that period was called tuberculosis, for which there was no treatment. I remember my childhood where there were hospitals specialised in treating tuberculosis patients, they were called “sanatoriums”. Although it is well documented and explains why we find mass graves, nobody seems to remember. The same thing about unmarked graves… the important point here is that each kid received an individual burial. Look at those white crosses, maybe at the time they were marked, and then time and weather did the rest, paint decayed, crosses disappeared. The fact remained was that they had received an individual burial. Personally, I don’t see any scandal here. Where I come from, there is a large German cemetery outside town, where German war prisoners were buried. Most graves are not marked, they were all marked back then, but time, negligence and vandalism have done the rest.
The assimilation policy, which today has a very negative connotation, was at the time seen as a positive thing, the aim was first to save these kids from short term death, but more importantly to give them a future by teaching them to read and to write and to learn a trade. There was no such thing as a natural paradise from which kids were stolen by vicious and malevolent public officials. As to the ambiance of these schools, people forget that in those days authority was very strict and kids either white or aboriginal were seen as young animals that needed to be domesticated… You don’t have to go that far back in time, in 1971 and 1972 I spent my summers running a general store for about one hundred white lumberjacks and 60 aboriginal families. Malnutrition, beating at the hands of alcoholic or abusive parents was the norm. I even tried to organise a nutritional clinic so that a qualified community nurse would teach mothers the basics of a good diet, but was told to mind my own business, which I did. But if I had been a government official I would have had no hesitation to take away these kids to save them from abusive parents. Let me tell you that by August teenagers were eager to go back to schools in town to get away from that mess. I know because I was friend with many of them. By the way, things haven’t changed that much. I checked the statistics lately, they are right now about 2900 kids in foster homes across Canada, 52.2% of them are aboriginals, a disproportionate number. Nobody these days talks about assimilation, but these kids are taken away for the same reasons than before…and for the same reasons that White, Black or Latino kids are.
Even in the 50’s, discipline was physical in white schools as well, this is how I learned to become right handed. In Canada, until the 50’s, at which time the Criminal code was modified, the father had absolute authority over his children. Before WW1, women in Canada had no legal rights, they were the property of a man, first their father, then their husband. They could not testify in courts, they could not sign any legal paper or obtain a loan from a bank unless endorsed by their father or their husband. Human rights, child rights, feminism were concepts unknown back then.
In history, there is no bigger mistake than to read past events with today’s eyes. Things that were acceptable back then are no longer accepted. Just think about the physical discipline than you and I have experienced during our childhood both at school and at home.
No Canada is not a people of racists, and I am fed up with the eternal victimhood mantle Aboriginals use to manipulate Canadians. The truth is that there is a huge variation in the degree of development and self respect amongst the various Aboriginal tribes. Some like the Hurons, the Crees and others live in the 21 st century. They are modern tribes, economically self sufficient, transparent in their administration. By that I mean that the band council is not composed of relatives, the community knows how much they receive from the Federal and the Provincial governments, what that money is used for, and how much the band council members make, because it has been voted by the general assembly. On the other hand, you have tribes like the Mohawks were all council members are relatives, where there is no accountability neither to the government, nor to their own people. No one outside the band council knows how much money the band has received from the governments in any given year, what the band council do with these sums, how much each council member makes a year, there is simply no transparency whatsoever. Some bands like to be treated like children, because it pays. If you check Canada government website, you will learn that for this fiscal year alone, Aboriginals in this country, I mean those living on reserves, will receive over $16 B. It does not include what Provincial governments add on top of that and all the other programs they benefit from as Canadian citizens. Not bad for a population of less than one million people.
The fact is that there are two classes of citizens in Canada. The second class citizen, you and I and every one paying income taxes, sale taxes, property and school taxes, paying for mortgage and paying for their kids’ education. And there is the first class citizen, the Aboriginal living on a Reserve, who pays no taxes whatsoever, who get free housing and who can send his kids to university all expanses paid by us the second class citizens. – Dennis M. – Toronto, ON.

Up-date on Climate change

As I said before we have been moving away from the sun for 66 years, part of a 5000 year out then, a 5000-year trip back into the sun. We are overheating, hardly starting into the outward trip.

And yes we are going to hit an ice age even as our natural gas supply dwindles and disappears.
We have never been through anything like this before! if we do not reduce our carbon output we will die as a human race, that is the long and short of it. Our solar season runs 5000 years out then, 5000 years back to center.

If we change nothing, continue as we are, we will end up like another Venus, all humanity gone.

Much of our carbon dioxide output is being absorbed by the oceans where it turns into carbolic acid. This is killing reefs all over the world. When an ocean or a pond becomes acidic The fish only produce only males and the species die out. So there will be worldwide starvation long before the weather eliminates us.

Further afield, the Arctic is melting and the tundra beneath the snow is turning to mud. In this mud is underground lakes, now ice lens. Soon enough they will melt and cave-ins will be the result.

Greenland’s glaciers are melting at a rapid pace, enough to create a freshwater ocean from the glacier runoff. This freshwater ocean is being propelled slowly to the equator by the rotation of the earth. Many species cannot live in freshwater. They will perish.
The Antarctic glacier, the largest in the world has not receded in 8 million years. Yet, today it is melting rapidly from the bottom. The ice covering is 6.4 million tonnes. If it slips into the ocean it will maan an immediate
rise of 4 foot of water at the coastlines around the world!

The Conservatives do not have a global warming plan! O’Toole talks about carbon tax but no plans to go with it. To him, it is just another conservative tax. The comment I get from Conservatives is “fool, it is just the weather. it been with us forever.”

Heat waves will be ongoing with little respite.

The nuclear generation will continue to be in trouble because of warmer than usual cooling waters to draw from. AC power lines will be stressed so a switch to DC will be the order or the day. Nuclear plants will be restricted to 50% capacity or less because of the warmth of their “cooling” water.

Conservatives and climate actions.

Conservatives, in general, will lay off staff from environmental groups especially those in the enforcement of the laws. Then, they write flowery new laws governing whatever travesty they have going on. These new laws seem like a positive public position however, with no one left to enforce them or inspect them, they are empty!

Every now and again or in answer to a complaint they will drag out these newly minted laws so the public can read them and assume everything is fine, but, it’s not!
