Albertans are the worst polluters on the planet!!! Stop Albertan lifestyle!!! Thank goodness other countries, provinces, and states have more dignity than they do - how can you do this to the environment?!!!

Shameless Alberta!!!

Quote:
Independent Alberta would be the world’s worst climate polluter

Alberta would overtake Saudi Arabia as the worst climate-polluter on the planet per-person if the province secedes from Canada.

Saudi Arabia currently holds the title for world’s most dangerous nation, regularly ranking dead last in analyses of climate performance.

Again, you guys still do pollution better than we do.

But by all means, keep googling.

I knew you spent hours doing it. :)

it really helps to overcome all those articles and facts about how your town is the worst polluter on the planet!

Spoiler: show

Again, you're doing all the heavy work to make yourself look stupid.

My town? You spend hours looking for articles on the oil sands and don't even know where they're at.

Jesus, I'm arguing with a G.E.D.

It's such a dumb stat they way it is calculated. Any and all carbon or other form of pollution should belong to the end consuming nation.

In middle school when we took some trips to Canada, the highways were litter-free. And some of the places we visited were clean too.

Don't read too much into it. He's reaching pretty hard because he's backed into a corner he can never get out of.

Interesting move on the distributed grid front:


Mini nuclear reactors with key South Korean parts cleared by US:

There are much better techs out there, but smaller safe generation could really help speed up coal plant elimination

"I want to talk about the environment."

"Me too!"

That was a good moment last night.

Agreed. And nuclear tech has evolved interesting concepts over the years. I saw this earlier this year and has great potential.

At least 31 have died in the largest wildfires in California history. The east is defending itself against twice the usual number of tropical cyclones. And what may be the highest temperature ever recorded on Earth came in August in the United States. It's a torrid 2020 and it was forecast 32 years ago.

Quote:
The White House has rejected a California request for federal disaster relief to help it recover from wildfires that have burned through nearly 3,000 square miles in the state, killing at least three people and destroying nearly 1,000 homes.

In a statement from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, press secretary Lizzie Litzow said that damage assessments conducted by the agency had determined the fires last month "were not of such severity and magnitude to exceed the combined capabilities of the state, affected local governments, voluntary agencies and other responding federal agencies."
