Apparently one must speak the truth quietly in Canada. More power to Danielle Smith for standing up and plainly stating her doubts about the catastrophic anthropogenic global warming scam.
A live audience heckled and booed Alberta Wildrose party leader Danielle Smith at a leaders’ debate Thursday after she said she isn’t convinced that climate change is real.
Smith, the front-runner in the race to become Alberta’s next premier, was poised and unflappable despite the deafening jeers from the crowd.
“We’ve been watching the debate in the scientific community, and there is still a debate,” Smith said. “I will continue to watch the debate in the scientific community, but that’s not an excuse not to act.”
Smith said she is frustrated by the climate change debate because politicians set impossibly high targets and then do nothing to achieve them. She said the Wildrose will take a different approach, putting in place “constructive policies” that reduce overall emissions.
“Having consumer rebates, so people can make home renovations, do energy audits, switch to micro-generation, get a new hybrid vehicle or natural gas, switch to natural gas powered electricity,” she said. “All of these things will have a really positive impact on reducing greenhouse gases, reducing overall toxic emissions and also saving Albertans a little bit of money.”
She also chastised the incumbent Progressive Conservatives for wasting $2 billion on the province’s carbon capture and storage program.
