During the final Conservative leadership debate, candidate Roman Baber said he would fight climate radicals just like he fought mobs of COVID fanatics.

When asked about a Conservative net-zero climate plan, Baber took a different approach than the other candidates. Rather than reasoning out what Canada should do infrastructure-wise to reduce climate change issues, Baber rejected the tacit assertion that Canada needs to restructure industry and society over climate change.

“I was not afraid to take on the radical COVID mob, and I will not be afraid to take on the radical left-wing environmental mob,” Baber began. “We should not, as Conservatives, be afraid about talking about the environment. We know that Canada produces less than 1.5% of all global emissions, and there’s no certainty that even if you were to cut all of those emissions that that would make a material difference in the climate.”

“We know who the polluters are,” Baber stated. “They’re in China. They’re in Russia. They’re in India. And the Paris Accord does not hold them anywhere near to the same standard as Canada is held to. So, I’m going to reframe this conversation.”

Baber continues, saying that of that 1.5% of Canada’s contribution to global emissions, most is likely naturally absorbed by Canada’s large forests. Thus, rather than attacking Canadian energy, Baber argues that Canada should simply look to expand its already impressive forests.

“Canada is blessed with so much forest that much of our greenhouse gases are actually naturally absorbed, and we don’t get credit for that under the Paris Accord. And I do not believe that taxing Sally $10 at the gas pump every time she fills up her car is actually going to affect the global climate. I don’t think that many people actually believe that anymore…”

“So, I will not impose a regressive tax that only serves to punish Canadians. However, I would like to look at planting more trees. Right now, we’re planting about 360 million trees a year. I would like to increase that to half a billion a year.”
