On the air-pollution scale, consumers have a counterpart to the oilsands, only bigger—much bigger. Call it the skeleton in the kitchen. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) exposes the startling results of rich eating and drinking habits in a report titled The Role of Fossil Fuels in the U.S. Food System and the American Diet.
“Use of fossil fuels to produce the foods and beverages consumed by Americans in 2007 accounted for 13.6 per cent of economy-wide CO2 emissions from fossil fuels,” says the 90-page document.
“Domestic fossil fuel use linked to U.S. food consumption produced 817 million of the nearly six billion metric tons of CO2 emissions economy-wide,” it says.
The role of everyday American grub in the exhaust blamed for global climate change is 12 times the current annual oilsands contribution of 70 million tonnes and exceeds the Canadian total from …

I studied weather as aircrew and an operations officer with the Canadian Air Force. I learned how little we knew and how bad the forecasts were. They were almost useless beyond 48 hours then, and sadly it is the same today.
Despite this, similar computer models are used to make climate forecasts that tell us with 95 per cent certainty it will be warmer 50 years from now. What is going on? A massive deception is the simple answer.
As Albertans, we know that we live in
one of the most beautiful provinces in one of the best countries in the world. From
the spectacular Rocky Mountains, through the foothills, the boreal forests and
into the grasslands of the prairies, we have it all, except a coast line of
course. We are blessed with impressive natural
resources that are the envy of many, that provide, through development and
export, a great bounty for all Canadians. It should be no surprise that the 3
provinces that contribute substantially through equalization payments to the
rest of the other provinces and territories of Canada are Alberta, BC and Saskatchewan,
all with a high natural resource economic profile. There are challenges however living,
working and playing in northern latitudes due to the extremes in weather
conditions and difficulty to access those resources for portions of the year, but
with a population that is small, relative to the vast expanse that is Canada, we
have become leaders …
