SHAM SOLUTION
Carbon offsets are like religious “indulgences” where you could absolve your sins with money. Not polluting, like committing the sin, is the only meaningful behaviour that will improve the world’s situation. Paying others for our pollution is just a pointless financial Ponzi scheme that rich people will manipulate for profit. Carbon offsets are just a distraction polluters will use to claim they are taking action when in reality they are doing nothing. Offsets will not fix anything.

JUST GIVE UP, ALBERTA
I think Alberta should just ‘leave it in the ground’ for a while. All the out of work oilpatch folks could get EI, and manufacturing in Quebec and Ontario wouldn’t be getting anymore oilfield-related orders. We could save billions by becoming a ‘have not’ province; and then be able to offer $10/day daycare by way of our national welfare system. I find it odd that there’s nary a peep about the environmental danger of Newfoundland’s offshore oil rigs in ‘Iceberg Alley’ though! That industry was even promised a multi-million ‘boost’, but then, that might have to be altered, once the CBC has received its consistently increasing chunk of the pie!
