Green Party Climate Roadmap

What were these guys smoking when they came up with this plan? Rotisserie? It’s not like they’re these guys.

And a $50 carbon tax is just one of their bright ideas. Here’s more:

  • A retrofit of all Canada’s buildings to a high level of energy efficiency by 2025 and zero net energy after 2025 using refundable tax credits, tax-deductible Green Mortgages, 100% Accelerated Capital Cost Allowance, revolving federal loans and changes to Canada’s Building Code.
  • Removal of all subsidies to coal, oil, gas and coalbed methane production, a cap on overall extraction levels of fossil fuels, and phasing out of coal, oil, gas and nuclear electrical generation.
  • A carbon tax or carbon rebate for forest companies to reflect either the net loss of carbon storage or the net gain of carbon sinks from their lands.
  • A methane tax on all landfills and mandatory methane capture after 2015.

See the complete list.

And have you read Green Party leader, Elizabeth May’s blog? The lady needs a writer. And if she has one, she needs to fire ’em and get a better one.

I like the Green Party.
