Who we are

Strengthening Canada – creatively & politely We are concerned Canadians We are Canadians, rapidly growing in number, who are deeply troubled by Climate Alarmism and the effect it is having on education, political discourse, energy policy and the economy.   We have the curiosity to explore behind the headlines. When we read that climate science

Why are we doing it

Unbalanced dialog is wrecking Canada Jobs are disappearing. In Canada we have many blessings. We have the freedom, business environment, infrastructure and natural resources that have enabled indigenous people and immigrants from around the world to become productive, raise families and live together peacefully. Canada has become one of the most desirable places to

How is it happening

Let’s discuss energy in ways that benefit Canadians The so called “climate emergency” is leading to energy and environmental policies that are  hurting Canadians, compromising our standard of living, reducing our ability to innovate and standing in the way of cleaning up real pollution.  Unless we do something it will get worse. We need

Canada is cold

Canada is the coldest country in the world. We need reasonably priced, reliable energy. Nothing is more important than energy. We use it for lighting, cooking, heating, cooling, farming and making a living. It is especially important in Canada because this is the coldest country on Earth. We need it to survive.  We are

Reduce Pollution

Let’s tackle real environmental issues. A lower proportion of people are living in poverty than ever before and the world’s population is growing. We are making, using and disposing of more stuff than at any time in human history. Much of that impacts the environment.   It is important to take care of our planet.

Climate Alarmism

Climate Alarmism threatens to harm Canadians for generations to come Belief in an imminent climate catastrophe caused by greenhouse gases has become a preoccupation of activists, a majority of journalists and many politicians. Whenever there is bad weather or a natural disaster of any kind “climate change” caused by “carbon” is blamed.  Environmental concern

No Climate Emergency

There is no “climate emergency.” Anxiety about extreme weather is justified; droughts, severe cold, wind storms and floods can be devastating and, over the course of human history, have killed hundreds of millions of people.  Is human-caused climate change making matters worse? Should we be more concerned than ever? The short answer is NO.

Reality Not Propaganda

Believe reality – not propaganda. Almost no one has the time to read scientific papers of any sort, including ones about climate. We depend on science journalists and academics to do the reading for us and figure out what is likely true, interesting and important. The IPCC, which is a political organization, has taken

Encourage Canadians

Canada needs policies to lead the world in wealth creation and innovation. As a country we have stood by as manufacturing jobs have disappeared overseas. Canada’s share of investment in research and development in new technologies, compared to the rest of the world, has been shrinking. Governments are paying more attention to reversing “climate

Anxieties

Public anxieties have been exploited. Politicians are closing down industries, destroying jobs and proposing tax increases on energy, which like food is necessary for survival, and justifying it because of a “climate emergency.” How did we get to the point where virtually no one is raising their hand and asking, “Are you really sure

Four Climate Things

Four things you need to know about climate change 1. Few take the time to explore the actual science There are several reasons why few people, including journalists, take the time to understand climate science.  Firstly, the volume of scientific papers is overwhelming. Over 150,000 papers are published every year that relate to the

Fudged

The hockey stick. Fudged data and heroic Canadians. The hockey stick graph was published in 1998 in the respected journal, Nature. The graph was the science used by Al Gore to galvanize opinion and assemble an ever-growing army of acolytes.  With the coverage from the CBC, BBC, Guardian and other mainstream media outlets, you

RenewablesNoAnswer

Renewables are not the solution – unfortunately The vision is highly appealing; energy that is free of charge, supplied courtesy of the sun and wind, and without producing any pollution at all! The many jobs required to manufacture solar panels and wind turbines are an added bonus. Admittedly some capital investment is required up front…

Catastrophes

Climate catastrophes have been happening forever Every particle of soil tells the story of climate change It is appealing to imagine that humans can control the Earth’s climate and if we are careful, we can prevent catastrophes from happening.  However, historians, epidemiologists, ecologists, volcanologists, anthropologists, archeologists, geographers, cosmologists and geologists routinely document the effects

Nurture Canada

Let’s nurture a country to love We need to appreciate what has made this country the envy of the world despite having a climate that is one of the most inhospitable. Increasing taxes on the energy we need for heating our homes, cooking, travelling and earning a living will do nothing to lessen our

What about the science?

What about Climate Science? The first question most visitors to Climate Realism Canada’s website want answered is, “What is your position on climate science? Do you agree with the scientific consensus about dangerous anthropogenic global warming or not?” Our answer is neither “yes” nor “no.” Let’s answer the question as clearly as possible point

Realism_Defined

Which climate change group do you belong to? Climate Change Realist Knows that the climate is complex, always changing and that dogmatism isn’t justified. We think that, when making decisions about energy and environment, all available evidence should be taken into account to optimize human welfare. Many climate realists are also climate skeptics. Climate

Good_News

Good news for everyone! Everyone is justified in being concerned about about extreme weather, as well as other potential natural disasters. We should construct buildings not only so they conserve energy, but also so they don’t get flooded or collapse. We also need to minimize harmful pollution including the emission of carbon monoxide, sulfur

Green_Interests

Overwhelming green interests Debate about climate change is commonly framed as a fight between underdog environmentalists against “deniers of science” who are backed by the limitless resources of “big oil.”   This framing is far removed from reality but the origins of dislike for “big oil” are understandable. The history of the oil industry in

Hockey_Stick_Graph

Is the hockey stick graph correct? Who hasn’t seen Al Gore’s 2006 documentary, An Inconvenient Truth? It presents a cut and dried scientific case that carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels is causing global warming and humanity needs to cut back back urgently.  Everyone presumes that the two graphs presented in the movie, one

ClimateScience_No

Is “climate science” science? “Climate science” has become a whole lot different to conventional science.  There is a “consensus” about climate science and it is “settled” whereas other aspects of science are founded on specific observations and data. The Earth’s weather and climate are mind-crushingly complicated. The only way to generate a consensus about

Three_presumptions

A theory founded on three presumptions. How solid is the theory that human-generated carbon dioxide is causing global warming?  Let us leave aside for the moment that the theory developed momentum becoming part of mainstream thinking because of the very persuasive 2006 documentary, An Inconvenient Truth that showed an apparently scientific temperature graph shaped

Policy

Towards better energy and environmental policies We are not here to push specific policies, rather our goal is to promote debate, recognizing that: •  Citizens have a right to be heard and their interests considered. • No single public policy position should be treated as preeminent or imperative.  • Policy should be based on facts, rigorous analysis
