Here’s a headline that could change our financial security for the remainder of our lives and our children’s forever!
Baird last week was hand in hand with John Kerry welcoming him to the White House and basically trying to show the world that Canada is in “lock-step” with all the U.S. initiatives to fight “Global Warming” (LIE) and that whatever the U.S. does to fight it, we will follow suit!
Obama must thank his “green followers” for helping him win his second term into the White House and here comes the “pay-off”!
Huge deep pockets of “green money” have been thrown around to less than honest “charity groups” all dressed up in their “Cloak of Green” to basically stop our Oil Sands from producing one more drop of oil. Why?
The Hollywood/billionaires have all the same message: “ending all fossil fuelled electrical generation will save the world from a meltdown and has to replaced with wind and solar for the sake of our very existence”!
The truth is that these misguided and destructive people have all bee “hijacked” by a large group of elites all the way down the line like the U.N. and elitist foundations to make sure Agenda 21 is finalized and the transfer of wealth from Industrial Nations to the Third World is completed.
A Carbon Tax? Nice!
If Canada follows suit by being forced to introduce this TAX on all fossil fuelled industry products, get ready for life worse than when the Great Depression forced people to wander the streets looking food, clothing and a warm place to sleep!
There is one way out of this “road to hell”……………….Harper just has to say NO!…………….run the pipeline to the East Coast of Canada and let us here buy our own fuel!

Tax could provide cover for approval of oil sands pipeline
Hello Canada! Are you ready — ready for a new national tax on carbon that will ding pocketbooks across the country? My bet is that a new carbon tax is coming, made almost inevitable by Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s full-bore push to secure Washington’s approval of the Keystone XL pipeline.
For early clues on the carbon tax/Keystone trade-off, tune in Tuesday night to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address. As the president speaks, he will be alert to the chorus of Hollywood stars, environmental activists, editorial writers and industry leaders who are pushing for him to make the biggest climate-change decision he can possibly make: Impose a carbon tax.

It is time Canadians became aware of the giant trap being set in Washington over Keystone. The short version is this: The president approves Keystone, greatly expanding the flow of Canadian oil sands production into the United States. In return, however, Canada has no choice but to accept a carbon tax at home as part of a grand bargain.
I first mentioned the likely Obama pipelines-for-taxes strategy in comments at the annual Financial Post forecast luncheon at the New Year. “I see new taxes coming in the United States, including an energy or carbon tax, to try to cover the deficits. The new energy tax would serve as partial cover for President Obama’s approval of the Keystone XL pipeline.”
That Mr. Obama might offer some kind of carbon tax as a carrot to environmentalists and climate activists opposed to Keystone has since emerged as more than plausible.Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley Strassel recently outlined how the president might demand a carbon tax in return for approval of energy projects, including Keystone. Getting a carbon tax through Congress looks tricky. But Ms. Strassel reported that California Senator Barbara Boxer outlined how a carbon tax could be imposed administratively through the Environmental Protection Agency.
The Keystone-carbon tax trade off was also suggested in a recent editorial in Nature, the science journal. The editorial was big news in Canada, thanks to its endorsement of Keystone and Canada’s oil sands. “Regarding the Keystone pipeline,” said Nature, “the administration should face down critics of the project, ensure environmental standards are met and then approve it.” The science writers at Nature also benevolently said Canada’s oil sands are “not as dirty as many believe.”
UPDATE: Is this for real????
“[F]or the sake of our children and our future, we must do more to combat climate change. Yes, it’s true that no single event makes a trend. But the fact is, the 12 hottest years on record have all come in the last 15. Heat waves, droughts, wildfires, and floods – all are now more frequent and intense. We can choose to believe that Superstorm Sandy, and the most severe drought in decades, and the worst wildfires some states have ever seen were all just a freak coincidence. Or we can choose to believe in the overwhelming judgment of science – and act before it’s too late,” Obama will say, according to prepared remarks, suggesting Hurricane Sandy was a result of “climate change.”
And while Obama doesn’t label it “cap and trade,” he describes the program: “The good news is, we can make meaningful progress on this issue while driving strong economic growth. I urge this Congress to pursue a bipartisan, market-based solution to climate change, like the one John McCain and Joe Lieberman worked on together a few years ago. But if Congress won’t act soon to protect future generations, I will. I will direct my Cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take, now and in the future, to reduce pollution, prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change, and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy.
