$2 Billion Dollar For A Carbon-Capture Sideshow

Harper awarded close to a billion dollar to Alberta to go toward the untested carbon-capture project. Up to $2 billion have been set aside with half of that going to Shell’s project. This is nothing but a sideshow that does not really address the environmental pollution issue. Instead it literally buried the pollution in the ground with no clear scientific study done on it. Guess what else is under ground that these pollutants could seep into. Our drinking water! While nuclear waste storage have to undergo very stringent regulation and scientific study to ensure the storage site won’t result in migration of the waste, the carbon-capture have no such study and research. It only helps keep the oil and coal industry alive and divert the much needed effort to push toward clean energy. In fact $343 million is being taken from the clean energy fund.

This comes amid controversy over Harper’s continued use of taxpayer money to fund partisan advertisement and his MP have been caught by the opposition with handing out taxpayers fund to their constituent replacing the Government of Canada logo with Conservative logo. It’s good for Harper to keep his distant now. Whether he has prior knowledge or not, his past actions have made his MP think these actions are ok. Prior to this incident, the normally non partisan Government of Canada website were being plastered with Harper’s picture and the red color changed to Conservative blue. Pro-Conservative campaign style ad were paid for with taxpayers fund.

It’s so nice of them to waste taxpayer’s money at a time of deep economic difficulty.

  1. I’m just starting to figure out the fact that Tumblr is designed with a far
    more functionality rather than all that I was thinking.
    Even though I have not actually been an avid member untyil
    recently I personally have now learned that it happens to
    be quite a excellent site for people to bee able to
    learn a whole lot from mingling among other members, share insights and beliefs, and even boost website traffic
    towards firms that acknowledge its purpose. It is incredible that i’m merely finding out this at this point

  2. I am just beginning to notice that Tumblr gives a lot
    more elements than whatever I assumed. Even though I
    have not provesd to be an ardent member up to now I personally have found out that tumblr has grown to be quite
    a wonderful site for others to finally become familiar with a whole lot from networking among other people, impart ideas,
    and drive visitors for small businesses that identify its
    purpose. It is unbelievable that I am merely figuring out tumblr at this moment
