Carbon Tax and Paris Climate Change Targets Will Decimate Canadian Economy

Citizen’s Climate Lobby is cheering Prime Minister Trudeau’s carbon tax plan and efforts to meet the Paris Agreement climate change targets, but these will decimate the Canadian economy says Friends of Science Society. Citing the outcomes of similar policies in Europe and the UK, Friends of Science forecast an ‘industrial massacre,’ crushing debt for young adults, and that rapid decarbonization proposed by the IPCC will result in mass deaths, citing Cambridge professor Michael J. Kelly.



UN Climate Change SR15 Report Slammed as a Case of Goldilocks Thinking Without Cost-Benefit Analysis

The recent Summary Report (SR15) of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has been slammed as a case of Goldilocks thinking without any cost-benefit analysis or practical plan, says Friends of Science.

Carbon Kleptomania Report Denounces Clean Prosperity's Proposal as "Bribing" Canadians with their Own Carbon Tax Money

Canadians are being told they will have a net benefit from carbon tax rebates by a group pushing the concept of a ‘carbon dividend,’ which is like bribing people with their own money, says Friends of Science Society. Their new report “Carbon Kleptomania” shows that to reach Paris Agreement targets, all major industries in Canada would have to be shut down, meaning no jobs and no carbon rebates.



Climate Change Minister McKenna Challenged on Clean Growth Claims and Carbon Tax
