WE CAN’t AF­FOrD tHE COst OF CAr­BON

Calgary Herald - - EDITORIAL -

B.C. and Al­berta are en­gaged in a car­bon trad­ing scheme of sorts, to no one’s advantage.

Al­berta sends car­bon-rich bi­tu­men to B.C. that (ul­ti­mately) con­tributes to global warm­ing.

Global warm­ing pro­duces long, hot, dry sum­mers, when B.C.’s forests ig­nite.

It hurts to think that the new nor­mal for our chil­dren may be smoky sum­mer skies, breath­ing masks and the eerie light of an or­ange sun. Clearly, it’s time for change. The cost of our reliance on fos­sil fu­els has sim­ply be­come too great a price to pay. Mike Ward, Dun­can, B.C.
