If Canada Shut Down Our Entire Economy, It Would Make Almost Zero Difference To Global Emissions

Even the smallest emission changes in China can totally overshadow anything that happens in Canada. Yet, the Trudeau government continues pushing the carbon tax scam.

The Trudeau government keeps telling us that the carbon tax is needed to ‘save’ the world from rising emissions.

Yet, the federal government website itself reveals how little Canada contributes to global emissions. Here’s what the government says about it:

“Between 2005 and 2013, global GHG emissions increased by 18.3%. During that time, emissions from China increased by 61.5%.

Canada’s emissions in 2013 made up 1.6% of global GHG emissions.”

Here are two charts they put on the site:

Canada GHG Emissions World Comparison

Note how Canada’s total emissions are just a blip compared to the increase in China’s emissions. It’s also interesting how the chart combines all the nations of the European Union (many of them far bigger emitters than Canada) into one ‘region,’ just so they could push Canada into the ‘top 10’ emitters.

The charts above reveal how massive a scam the carbon tax really is.

We could shut down our entire economy, and the world would barely notice any difference in emissions. China is building hundreds of new coal plants around the world, and that output will totally cancel out any change Canada makes.

The makes everything more expensive, weakens our ability to compete, and makes our country poorer, and does nothing for the environment.

The government knows this. Their own website makes it clear that Canada can’t do anything to impact global emissions.

That’s why more and more people are seeing that the carbon tax isn’t about the environment at all. It’s about money and control. The government wants more of our money, so they can have more control over us. Plus, imposing the tax lets them fulfill their fevered virtue-signalling dreams of being global heroes – all at our expense.

We should be – and we can be – the wealthiest nation in the world. But that will never happen while our own leaders betray us through lies and harmful taxes.
