Climate Plan and Coal Phase-Out Implications: Understanding Social Costs of Carbon. This is the full presentation that was given to the Agricultural Services Board in Grande Prairie on Jan. 17, 2018. Climate plans center around reduction of carbon dioxide emissions. Coal is a large emitter of carbon dioxide, but in Alberta, provides more than 50% of power generation and is the cheapest form of power. Carbon taxes are calculated based on assumed future damages. These economic calculations are tied to climate models (simulations) - but climate models have over-exaggerated projections of global warming. Working with materials of economist Dr. Ross McKitrick, we discuss the methods and implications of the climate plan and coal phase-out.   See Our Press Release!

Friends of Science Society has issued two reports responding to the City of Calgary’s Climate Change Plan.

The greenhouse effect has changed very little. Temperatures may increase by 0.3 C by 2100 in response to CO2 emissions. See report here.

Carbon dioxide is plant food. CO2 emissions increase crop yields and the forest's productivity.

Carbon dioxide is a wonderful by-product of fossil fuel use. 

See our report on the Alberta climate plan and the social cost of carbon, short version here, technical version here.

Greenhouse gas emissions are very beneficial, with net benefits in Canada continually increasing throughout the 21st century. The social cost of carbon best estimate on a global basis is -17 US$/tCO2 and is extremely likely less than -4 US$/tCO2. The social benefits greatly exceed the social costs.

This debate matters!  The science matters.  

Please take time to review the many resources available by the left navigaton menu. Contact your local MP click here and ask why Canada has committed billions of dollars for carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions reduction (here) to fight a problem that doesn’t exist? CO2 emissions have only a tiny effect on temperatures, but strongly enhance plant growth.
