By Letter to the Editor on October 12, 2018.
Three days ago, Jason Kenney and Ontario Premier Doug Ford led a crowd of some 2,000 Calgarians in a chant railing against carbon taxes. They offered no alternative means of dealing with climate change, or of meeting our Paris targets set by former PM Stephen Harper.
However, then the Nobel Prize for economics was awarded to William Nordhaus for his work on the economic consequences of climate change, and the cost-effectiveness of putting a price on carbon to address these impacts.
Going into 2019 with no policy on climate change, which is becoming the greatest challenge of the century, is not an option. Jason Kenney has painted himself into a corner on this issue, and it will not go well for him or for any ship where he is the captain.
