Presumably, you've welcomed the Supreme Court's ruling on the "carbon
It never fails to amaze me how "climate
change" is being equated with "carbon
dioxide" (commonly referred to simply as "carbon") or even
termed "carbon pollution."
In fact, carbon

is absolutely vital for all life on Earth...!

Yes, "climate change" has been going on (up and down) ever since
this planet came into existence.
Just 22,000 years
ago, the whole eastern part of Canada was covered with a 1 to 3
km thick sheet of ice.
Since then, over a
period of around 15,000 years, it just melted away with natural

person really think it was because of some camp-fires by the

that natural process have stopped once the ice was gone?

well after the ice began melting, with a time lag of nearly 1000
The current cult-like desire for "decarbonization" of mankind's
energy needs is fostering severe negative consequences,
especially for future generations - and has no effect on
Yesterday's ruling by the Supreme Court of Canada (SCC),
upholding the legitimacy of the "carbon tax," i.e. the law of
2018, entitled "Greenhouse
Gas Pollution Pricing Act":
is a travesty...
As a chemist, I
surmise that the law itself, by its title alone, is a travesty!
While the SCC may not have had any choice to rule differently,
in terms of its legality, the law itself is based on
misleading/faulty language and interpretation of scientific
Of course, few of the learned justices have had the knowledge or

The undeniable fact
is that "carbon dioxide" is NOT a "pollutant" but an
absolutely vital trace gas in the Earth's
atmosphere, currently at around 0.04% of all its components.
CO2 in the atmosphere, all life on Earth
would cease to exist!
CO2 in the atmosphere, no oxygen would be
produced; CO2 is/has been the sole source of
molecular oxygen (that we breathe in with each breath)!
steady supply of CO2 from the thousands of
active volcanoes and fumaroles, life on Earth would have
already come to a standstill.
CO2 in the atmosphere, oceans and (most)
fresh waters would become "acidified."
