The Prime Minister's Stephen Harper failure to address the AIDS conference in Toronto is another example of H his staggering failure at leadership and a slap in the face to the international community of activists, scientists and researchers engaged in the fight against the single greatest health enemy facing this planet. "In fact, 60 scientists wrote an open letter calling on Prime Minister Stephen Harper to revisit the science of global warming just this past spring. The letter started off as follows: "As accredited scientists in climate and related scientific disciplines, we are writing to propose that balanced, comprehensive public-consultation sessions be held so as to examine the scientific foundation of the federal government's climate-change plans."This also is not accidental. "Even by Prime Minister Stephen Harper's own unambitious standards, Ottawa is shrugging off its responsibility as a rich country to do more for the world's poor.Ottawa's failure to live up to Kyoto commitments to curb greenhouse gases poses a threat to poorer countries that are vulnerable to global warming. That makes us one of the least environmentally friendly countries in the group. Here too we are losing ground on the index."The Prime Minister's Stephen Harper needs to increase foreign aid sharply, reduce trade barriers and curb our fossil fuel use, ifhe is serious about easing global poverty, disease and despair. With bad friends in the Alberta's oil industry Obviously he wrongfully still does not care about anyone else but himself.No wonder that the news media now often Portrays the Prime Minister's Stephen Harper undeniably too as childish, immature, shows false partiality, discriminates, is false, a pretender, hypocrite, non Christ like for sure too.. for still he really is crooked underneath.. and eventually it all oozes out undeniably too for all to see.. with his has hidden agenda's too, and yes as we can see now it was a really big mistake to have voted for him and the Conservatives too.Thursday, April 06, 2006
An open letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper:Dear Prime Minister:
As accredited experts in climate and related scientific disciplines, we are writing to propose that balanced, comprehensive public-consultation sessions be held so as to examine the scientific foundation of the federal government's climate-change plans. This would be entirely consistent with your recent commitment to conduct a review of the Kyoto Protocol. Although many of us made the same suggestion to then-prime ministers Martin and Chretien, neither responded, and, to date, no formal, independent climate-science review has been conducted in Canada. Much of the billions of dollars earmarked for implementation of the protocol in Canada will be squandered without a proper assessment of recent developments in climate science.
Observational evidence does not support today's computer climate models, so there is little reason to trust model predictions of the future. Yet this is precisely what the United Nations did in creating and promoting Kyoto and still does in the alarmist forecasts on which Canada's climate policies are based. Even if the climate models were realistic, the environmental impact of Canada delaying implementation of Kyoto or other greenhouse-gas reduction schemes, pending completion of consultations, would be insignificant. Directing your government to convene balanced, open hearings as soon as possible would be a most prudent and responsible course of action.
While the confident pronouncements of scientifically unqualified environmental groups may provide for sensational headlines, they are no basis for mature policy formulation. The study of global climate change is, as you have said, an "emerging science," one that is perhaps the most complex ever tackled. It may be many years yet before we properly understand the Earth's climate system. Nevertheless, significant advances have been made since the protocol was created, many of which are taking us away from a concern about increasing greenhouse gases. If, back in the mid-1990s, we knew what we know today about climate, Kyoto would almost certainly not exist, because we would have concluded it was not necessary.
We appreciate the difficulty any government has formulating sensible science-based policy when the loudest voices always seem to be pushing in the opposite direction. However, by convening open, unbiased consultations, Canadians will be permitted to hear from experts on both sides of the debate in the climate-science community. When the public comes to understand that there is no "consensus" among climate scientists about the relative importance of the various causes of global climate change, the government will be in a far better position to develop plans that reflect reality and so benefit both the environment and the economy.
"Climate change is real" is a meaningless phrase used repeatedly by activists to convince the public that a climate catastrophe is looming and humanity is the cause. Neither of these fears is justified. Global climate changes all the time due to natural causes and the human impact still remains impossible to distinguish from this natural "noise." The new Canadian government's commitment to reducing air, land and water pollution is commendable, but allocating funds to "stopping climate change" would be irrational. We need to continue intensive research into the real causes of climate change and help our most vulnerable citizens adapt to whatever nature throws at us next.
We believe the Canadian public and government decision-makers need and deserve to hear the whole story concerning this very complex issue. It was only 30 years ago that many of today's global-warming alarmists were telling us that the world was in the midst of a global-cooling catastrophe. But the science continued to evolve, and still does, even though so many choose to ignore it when it does not fit with predetermined political agendas.
We hope that you will examine our proposal carefully and we stand willing and able to furnish you with more information on this crucially important topic.
CC: The Honourable Rona Ambrose, Minister of the Environment, and the Honourable Gary Lunn, Minister of Natural Resources
