“What is even better than pricing emissions is ensuring that they never happen in the first place,” Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said to a United Nations audience in Glasgow for the COP26 summit.

“Which brings me to my next major commitment, we’ll cap oil and gas sector emissions today and ensure they decrease tomorrow at a pace and scale needed to reach net-zero by 2050.”
Trudeau made the commitment on behalf of Alberta as he stood in front of the United Nations flag.
“That’s no small task for a major oil and gas producing country,” Trudeau bragged.
“It’s a big step; that’s absolutely necessary.”
Last week, Trudeau appointed a radical Greenpeace activist to the post of Minister of Climate Change. Steven Guilbeault, the former Minister of Heritage responsible for the widely disliked internet censorship bill, was once arrested for scaling the CN Tower in a deranged global warming stunt in 2001.
