Letters: Langley Advance reporter falls for global warming hoax

I just can’t let Matthew Claxton go unchallenged on his global warming alarmist fears and make-believe solutions.

Dear Editor

RE: Langley Advance, Aug 13, OUR VIEW, Too hot to not have a real debate.

I just can’t let Matthew Claxton go unchallenged on his global warming alarmist fears and make-believe solutions.

It’s truly amazing that some people are willing to kill our economy and trash our jobs for some unproven hypothesis that the temperature may rise or fall half a degree in 100 years. Who needs an economy? What jobs?

Sure global warming exists… as a contrived theory based only on hundreds of never-ending constantly changing computer models.

Garbage in, garbage out. Thousands of paid-for pseudo scientists couldn’t survive if they didn’t produce doomsday alarmist reports.

Global warming is now a $1.5 trillion global industry, the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on mankind. To put this into perspective, Exxon Mobile, the largest American oil company with annual revenues of approx. $365 billion, is only one quarter the size of the Big Green Climate Change Industry. (

Opportunistic on the current heat wave, Claxton claims ‘anecdotal evidence’ (no proof emotions). The thing is when it is not raining here, it is raining somewhere else in the world. When we get a dry summer, someone else gets a wet one, etc.

His solutions (ironically after the big defeated plebiscite) include spending more tax dollars on transit, and more tax incentives which are taxpayer subsidies.

Policies that involve government (taxpayer) subsidies like electric cars and solar or wind grants are a cost/benefit negative drain on our economy, resulting in higher taxes, higher costs, lower quality of life, etc.

They tried Claxton’s wind/solar solutions in Europe which disastrously failed, resulting in a new class of energy poverty.

Some 20,000-plus are dying every winter in Britain alone because they can’t afford to pay their heating bills.

They are now having to choose between food or heat. (

We have been Carbon Tax and (Carbon Trust Cap/Trade) ripped off in B.C. for well over $1 billion which solved nothing as carbon emissions have increased.

Such thinking resembles the same NDP and Liberal leftist/socialists program that are committed to shut down pipelines and the Alberta oil sands.

Life is hard enough without dreaming up more ways to be victim scammed by Al Gore and complicit followers.
