    Symbols matter. They may be the only thing that does any more.
    It seems so. We're pulling down statues, butchering flags, renouncing holidays and inventing holidays.

    See and I think we should vastly narrow the age window people are allowed to vote.

    Say? 30-60?

    Maybe limit it to people who own land?
    I've been saying for awhile that your vote should be weighted based on your income tax.

    It takes a small mind to think a big bus makes any difference at all, to anything, anywhere, ever.
    It takes an equally small mind to think anything we do in Canada in regards to GHG output has any effect whatsoever on the world as a whole. If these politicians want to operate under this umbrella of mass psychosis they're calling "Climate Change" then they can't be hypocrites about it and expect any sort of respect or to be taken seriously.

    There's a balance. We do emit a lot of GHG per capita but that's partially reflective our resource industry, climate, and size.

    As individuals, none of us have an effect on the world as a whole but collectively, each and every one of us is the problem.

    My biggest problem is how climate has been used as a way to funnel government money to their friends and supporters or used for garnering headlines about climate action.

    With the money that's been spent to date, Canada should have smart grids and better electrical infrastructure, retired coal power plants, and made Canada a leader in clean energy tech.

    The biggest gap in all of this has been the trade agreements which render any sort of domestic carbon taxes pointless when the emissions and pollutions are simply exported to our trader partners.

    The one thing Alberta has done is retire a bunch of coal power plants. Less than 15 percent of Alberta's power generation is Voal now. Huge change over the last few years.

    I sort of wish we had vole power plants. Burning voles to charge my cellphone? Where do I sign?

    Do you have a source for that? The CER is still saying:
    About 91% of electricity in Alberta is produced from fossil fuels – approximately 43% from coal and 49% from natural gas. The remaining 8% is produced from renewables, such as wind, hydro, and biomass (Figure 3)
    though it does appear a lot of their statistics are from 2018.

    https://www.cer-rec.gc.ca/en/data-an...s-alberta.html

    Edit: And this 2021 Report shows nearly 35% from Coal and Coke and 55% Natural Gas as of 2021...

    2nd Edit: Forgot I had this real time power generation from AESO bookmarked: http://ets.aeso.ca/ets_web/ip/Market...DReportServlet

    At this moment, ~20% Coal / ~70% Natural Gas.

    People love to get into the science and morality of climate change. Who is at fault, how we are going to correct it.

    I've simply started telling people that even if we have climate change, as they suggest, I don't actually care.

    Then I tell them that Ron Swanson is my spirit animal, and the conversation stops.

    Yeah I use the real-time AESO thing. Total capacity of Coal plants according to AESO is 2530 and total Capacity in Alberta is 17,224. That marths out to 14.7%.
    That's capacity. Actual generation as I look at it right now is 2025 for coal and 10,303 total for 19.7%.

    Most of the coal plant retirements have been conversions to natural gas, so not surprised that "fossil fuels" are still a high percentage.

    The motion was put forward at the urging of Tim Takaro, a Vancouver-area doctor who occupies a tree in Burnaby
