It's crazy that despite making up 14% of the population, Alberta/Saskatchewan makes up 50% of the emissions.
Maybe could be due to the wildfires that happened recently in the last few years?

I live here and do not care at all about these useless 'emissions targets' under the Paris agreement when the world's largest polluter, China, gets a free pass under that agreement for the next 11 years and the 2nd largest one, America, is correctly not in that agreement at all.
We NEED the oil money to maintain and increase our standard of living and balance the provincial books (and pay off the record high NDP debt)
We WILL NOT TOLERATE idiots in Ottawa or elsewhere stealing more of our money to waste with nothing to show for it-we SHOULD be paying comparable or lower prices than the Americans for fuel.
Butt out of OUR INTERNAL politics (or at least this thread since you evidently like paying too much...)

That does, of course, not mean cheap food is inherently bad or expensive food is inherently better. It means that cheap and convenient food/fuel encourages bad consumption habits.
Well now, let’s take a look at your assumptions. Yes cheap food makes for bad consumption habits. If you have little money, then cheap food is the viable option. Those who live on, or below the poverty level tend to be more obese. Coincidence? Look at the United States. With the dropping of family income the incidence of obesity increases. Is there a correlation? Probably. Please do a little research. Then take a hard look at what’s happening in the States. Expand this into Canada, where the average income is dropping. This is the new, hard reality.
The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten....

Wildfires are because of climate change. #Science

Can you please be a little bit more considerate of my feelings? I don't understand facts and equalization.

Yes, I'm not placing the blame on the poor, at all. They have limited options because fresh produce is expensive and cities are poorly planned and transit is underfunded in many cities.

Fast-food companies profiting from the situation are to blame and car manufacturers and oil companies are to blame.

They all encourage poor consumption habits through saturation advertising because they stand to make a profit from overconsumption.

In both cases, the taxpayer is left with the bill of increasing medical due to obesity and disaster relief costs due to climate change.

I wouldn't say it's cause of climate change. Like what, did climate change cause a spark to light of the forest? If so please I want a spark out of no where to light up my blunt too.

Also I never asked what causes them I just said the burning of the trees and what not causes more carbon dioxide to be produced.

Nope, just Google "climate change wildfires." You'll get thousands of helpful results.

https://www.macleans.ca/news/canada/cli ... dangerous/

"These fires are different from forest fires in the past. They are often burning too hot, too fast and too big for firefighters to do much but stay out of their way.

There is too much fuel for them, not, as Kenney said, just because it has been too long between fires, but because it has been unusually dry for years, so that the top layer of the forest floor—which you would think of as dirt if you were walking on it—is catching fire."

"Climate change is making the state hotter and drier
Hot temperatures and dry conditions caused by global warming are taking a toll on west coast forests. The past five years in California have been the hottest on record, and the state recently came out of a nearly six-year drought, its second worst in history.

A lack of rainfall coupled with disappearing groundwater increases the likelihood of tree death. Dead trees act as explosive fuel when wildfires start."

I can google "climate change and why my dick is getting smaller" and get a lot of results.

Modern forestry practices, not climate change, are responsible for the increase in wildfires.
Shouldn't Vancouver be under water by now? Last time I walked around Stanley park the water level didn't seem any higher than it was 30 years ago.
Focusing on something real, Canadians should be outraged at the raw sewage that gets dumped into the Straight of Georgia by Victoria.

Yes, I too heard Trump’s explanation of the wildfire because stupid lazy forestry officials weren't raking the damn leaves, like they're supposed to!! Damn coastal elites!

And the fact any snow falls means climate change is fake.
