Mr. President: For Next Energy Czar, Choose More Carefully – February 12, 2013

Breaking a Few Eggs – May 24, 2012
Prince Edward Point has been named a "Globally Important Birding Area" in 1998, and Environment Canada has declared it a wildlife sanctuary. Millions of birds migrate through this tiny area every year, more so than grace even Point Pelee. So it seems rather strange that just a few kilometres down the road the Ontario government has proposed installing the most efficient bird killing machines ever, in the form of a huge wind farm. All to protect the environment.
Eco Hypothesis Faulty – April 5, 2012

Climate Change, Greenhouse Gas Emissions And Canada: Do People Still Care? – June 17, 2011

The Present Climate – January 22, 2010
"A recent poll by Compas, paid for by the Frontier Centre for Public Policy, showed that 73 per cent of Canadians want any treaty on global warming delayed or not signed at all. They probably fear the economic costs, especially at a time when the worldwide recession is hardly over."
Global Warming Dismissed as 'Lies' – October 13, 2009
"Fluctuations in the earth's temperature have occurred throughout history and can be explained by various factors, such as changes in the sun", Monckton said. "Politicians motivated by money, power and glory are more than happy to jump on the global-warming bandwagon."
Climate Fears Based on Lies, Calgary Told – October 5, 2009
"As far as Lord Christopher Monckton is concerned, the debate on global warming is over as the science linking rising CO2 levels to calamitous environmental consequences is fatally flawed."
Is Man-Made Global Warming Real? – May 25, 2009
The sun is constantly emitting cosmic rays: Those that reach the Earth stimulate cloud creation, which has a cooling effect. But, when the sunspot cycle is active, the flow of cosmic rays is disrupted, fewer reach Earth's atmosphere, cloud cover is diminished, and the Earth warms.
Polar Bear Summit Allows Media In, But Not Churchill – January 16, 2009
Environment Canada loosened restrictions Thursday on media access to a federal summit on polar bears in Winnipeg today, but the mayor of Canada's polar bear capital said he's disappointed he was not included. "I think they're sending the wrong message by not including us... The biologists indicate the numbers are down, but we don't see it, in all fairness," he said. The summit will focus on the future of the iconic Canadian mammals, which some scientists say are in decline and some Inuit groups argue remain at healthy levels for harvesting.
Voice For The Poor Supports Oilsands – October 9, 2008
Artificially high energy prices, the work of politicians manipulated by radical environmentalists demonizing energies they don't like, are therefore "immoral," and a "de facto regressive tax on the poor. . . . They destroy jobs, erode civil rights gains and force minority and elderly households to choose between food, fuel and medicine."

The province made climate change commitments in Albertans and Climate Change: Taking Action, its 2002 climate change plan and in Alberta's 2008 Climate Change Strategy (which replaced the 2002 plan).

Oil Patch's New Ally – October 8, 2008
Alberta's energy industry has lately been made into an ecological bogeyman by environmentalist groups, portraying the oil sands as a "dirty," undesirable source because of its carbon footprint. "We say the economic frontier is the last frontier for achieving racial equality in society," Mr. Innis says. "And access to affordable energy ... is what we consider to be the master resource for the economic survival for our community. Rising energy prices represent an immoral war on the poor, because it keeps people poor."
