Last night while listening to the radio, I heard a CBC rerun of a program called The 180. It was a most depressing experience listening to some brainwashed characters repeating the “must have a carbon tax” mantra as though they were totally oblivious to the results of such a policy in the U.K., Europe and Australia. The following was the “setup” (complete with scary meme pic):
The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has released its full report, and blames climate change on the human residents of the planet.
Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon said the report should spur governments around the world to action.
But Canada’s government says it’s already playing a leadership role in the fight against climate change.
And that’s the assertion we put to our Rogue Parliament this week.
I very much doubt that anyone at the CBC (or Ban Ki-Moon, his high and mighty self, for that matter) has actually read this latest sausage from the IPCC. But the CBC – not unlike the U.K.’s BBC which it continues to dutifully emulate in its shallow biased “reporting” (and/or facsimiles thereof) – is never loath to drum into the minds of its unwary listeners the purported perils of climate change and the demon CO2.
So I am very grateful to reader “Another Ian” whose comment a while ago, led me to some mirth-worthy “antidotes” to the depressingly foggy mush being spread by the CBC. Thereby proving, once again, that humour is the best medicine!
