Suzuki Paying For Salvation – Gets Stranded In Purgatory

As I mentioned on February 5th, David Suzuki will be buying his way out of environmental Hell.

The foundation estimates the bus alone might produce about 20 tonnes of CO2. It is paying up to $35 per tonne to offset these emissions.

Whoop – Deee – Dooo.

They are compensating for the CO2 emissions to the tune of $23 a day. But in the meantime, their diesel bus will have driven over 3000 km spewing NOx, CO (carbon MONOXIDE, the POISONOUS gas), and particulate matter (soot). But that’s ok. They could have found a biodiesel bus. They could have found an hydrogen fuel cell bus. They could have gone by train.

Nope. Not good enough for Suzuki. Only a Rock Star style tour bus would do. So when our current government is working on removing chemicals and particulates from the air and fighting smog, the environmentalists continue to fight against the gas that gives plants life. I guess eating veggies is déclassé.

POI – On the last three trips I have made to Toronto, I have ended up with a sore throat which cleared a couple of days after I returned to Ottawa. My guess is that it was not me being sick, but that it was the chemicals in Toronto’s air. I have another trip scheduled to visit the big smoke and I will let you know whether the smog is the culprit.

In the mean time, I will let Suzuki keep OfficiallyScrewing the environment by buying carbon credits from some company in Switzerland.

    Your title reminded me of the old Catholic practice of buying “indulgences” to get out of purgatory. I guess that was what you were referring to. Great post!

    “They could have found an hydrogen fuel cell bus” Better yet they could have done it on the internet or some other medium that doesn’t pollute the environment.

    As an aside, wouldn’t it be cool to get someone like Dr. Tim Patterson and David Suzuki in the same room for a televised debate on climate change. I would suspect Dr. Patterson would wipe the floor with Suzuki.

    Canada is 200 Megatonnes over our limit. So at $35/tonne, that’s only $7 billion. Now that the Liberals have their hands out of the till, we’ve probably saved that already. Let’s pay it (to me; I can save the planet too!) just so they’ll

    lol!! Tom, I’m with you. This is extortion, but we’ll pay it, if they’ll just go away, and let us try to find some freaking gas somewhere!!!

    So its really not WHETHER YOU POLLUTE OR NOT, its how you justify it.

    Kooky Suzuki is a hypocrite of the worst kind. And when it comes to who supports his organization, he’s also not telling the truth.

    Suzuki isn’t the only hypocrite:
    * $14,200 in hotel expenses in Montreal for Stéphane Dion’s chauffeur
    * $5,550 spent on hotel/hospitality during Kyoto Conference in Montreal

    Heres the concept,much better that stuffing envelopes at home.I’m gonna idle my big honkin SUV each day and let “the sky is falling ” crowd send me money to shut it off in 15 minute increments.Sure fire winner as I see it especially if I throw in a free fir tree seedling.Then when I amass sufficient seed money,I’m gonna buy that liberal chicks big bus ,(I can’t remember her name but I’m sure I can find it on E-bay) and then go national.You guys gotta quit attacking Bore and Dr Fruitfly and get in on the new economy,they are ahead of their time!
