Reinstate the carbon tax and green energy rebates
Dear Premier Ford, please understand that there are more jobs and money to be made by trying to reverse climate change than by ignoring it. We must drastically reduce fossil fuel energy. Follow the Federal Government's lead to reduce emissions by any means possible. Discourage motor vehicles everywhere. Read Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming, edited by Paul Hawken.
Why is this important?
The number one issue for all governments at every level is to stop global warming. The biosphere will collapse if we don't all do everything we can to draw down fossil fuel emissions and prevent more from occurring. The environment is more important than the economy; the environment was chugging along nicely before humans brought the economy on board, but the economy will not chug along nicely when the oceans start to boil. We must rally to save not just your children and grandchildren, but the microbes, the fungi, and the whales with kilograms of plastic in them. Everything in the biosphere is at terrible risk, and we must all change our ways right now if we don't want all living beings to perish.
