What matters most

It doesn’t matter that human are responsible for the increasing level of green house gases s in the atmosphere.

It doesn’t matter that Albertans emit 71 tonnes of GHGs per person.

It doesn’t matter that the rising concentration of GHGs in the atmosphere contributes to global warming.

It doesn’t matter that global warming will have a catastrophic effect on the climate.

No, what matters most is that we accelerate the development of the oilsands even though the development of this unconventional fossil fuel is extremely destructive to the environment and to the climate because of GHG emissions.

Dear Peter,

I saw your letter this morning in the Edmonton Journal. Have linked to your letter and posted a response on my blog at www.andrewleach.ca. Thanks for being engaged in the policy debate in Alberta.
