Canadian elite special forces sniper makes record-breaking kill shot in Iraq


My perspective - Good work, quietly done - MyWestman

From: "John Feldsted" <>
Subject: Good Work, Quietly Done

Climate change fanatics ignore all mitigating factors to carbon emissions. It is likely that when carbon sequestering is taken into account Canada sequesters more carbon than it emits. Another factor ignored is that large quantities of carbon emissions are natural � but controllable. 

Consider the reduction in carbon emission if we were to increase our capacity to fight forest fires rather than building wind turbines and solar farms. It is an environmentally friendly approach that will reduce carbon emissions at far less economic cost than building electrical cars and the infrastructure needed to allow them to be practical. Even electrical vehicles wear out and have to be recycled � carefully and expensively, to avoid added pollution.

Consider the reduction in carbon emissions of we could create wide fire breaks in our forests planted with native grasses to limit the spread of wild fires.

Consider the value of using our abundant lakes and rivers as potential sources of fire fighting bases � with landing strips for water bombers and helicopters and reserves of fuel and pumping equipment on hand for emergencies. 

Not all farmers and ranchers are committed stewards of our lands and forests � just the large majority who care about the land they live on and sustains them.

We need to step back and use our vast acreage and sparse population to our advantage rather than pretending that we are a heavily industrialized, largely urbanized European nation and adopting solutions that do not work well for us. There is, after all, a thriving nation beyond the Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto triangle our federal government ignores as fly-over country. Central Canada no longer dominates. Our demographic, like our climate, is changing.
