Despite all the evidence showing a carbon tax in Canada can’t do anything, Trudeau and McKenna refuse to believe the facts and are ignoring the science.
Justin Trudeau and Catherine McKenna often claim to use ‘facts’ and ‘science’ to justify the hated carbon tax they’re imposing on Canadians.
Yet, the actual facts, and the actual science shows a carbon tax in Canada is a total waste of time, and will do nothing about global emissions.
Take a look at the charts below shared by Bloomberg writer Noah Smith on Twitter, which destroy any possible justification for a carbon tax in Canada:
Take a look at the chart directly above. Emissions went down in almost the entire western world – including Canada. And during the entire time emissions declined in Canada, we didn’t have a carbon tax.
So, the idea that a carbon tax is necessary for emission reductions is totally debunked.
As we can see, China is the real driver of global emissions increases. That’s because China went from being an incredibly poor country, and went through massive industrialization which increased emissions.
The same is also happening in India, where they are increasingly industrializing.
All of the charts above show the same thing: Canada contributes almost nothing to global emissions, our emissions are already below where they were in 1990, and nothing Canada does will matter because the increase in global emissions is from China, India, and the rest of the non-Western world.
The charts I’ve shared above totally destroy any possible justification for a carbon tax in Canada, and totally debunk the lies of Trudeau and McKenna.
Share these charts far and wide to help spread the truth.
