Desmond Tutu calling our oilsands ‘filth’, lecturing us Canadians about ‘global warming’. {Yawn}

01 Jun

That delusional and cringe-worthy twit is at it again; this time, bitching about Canada’s oilsands:

South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu has described Alberta’s oilsands as “filth,” saying its production is a result of “negligence and greed.”

Tutu was the keynote speaker on Saturday at a conference in Fort McMurray, Alta., focused on oilsands development and aboriginal treaty rights. The 82-year-old — who won the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in the battle against apartheid in South Africa — spoke to a room of about 200 people, including First Nations members.

“The fact that this filth is being created now, when the link between carbon emissions and global warming is so obvious, reflects negligence and greed,” he said. “The oilsands are emblematic of an era of high carbon and high-risk fuels that must end if we are committed to safer climate.”

Oh, blow it out your ass, Archbishop-in-a-tutu; why should we Canadians give a damn about global warming?

As I said previously, what’s the downside for us?

Milder winters and warmer summers = longer growing seasons + the ability to grow new crops, as it turns out, plus increased length of camping seasons and cottaging = more tourist dollars!

And since then, I’ve come across even more evidence that Canada will benefit, overall, if global warming is as threatening as is claimed it will be; see the following graphic from a recent study:


Ontario may suffer slightly, but the rest of Canada, including Alberta and the prairies, where most of our grain is grown anyway (and, incidentally, where our oilsands are), will come out ahead. Again, what’s the downside?

As for Desmond Tutu and his hate of oil:

“Oil powered the jet that flew Mr. Tutu from Canada to Africa, produced the fuel for the helicopter tour he had planned of the oil sands, and helped manufacture the microphones and TV cameras for his press conference,” Davis Sheremata, a spokesperson for TransCanada, told The Canadian Press in an email.

Exactly.

We should just laugh off Tutu, and otherwise ignore the senile old bat.

    One problem Mr Tutu and the like won’t address that IS important to me:

    AFRICA FOR THE AFRICANS, ASIA FOR THE ASIANS, WHITE COUNTRIES FOR EVERYBODY??

    “Diversity” means being chased out of your neighborhood.
    “Diversity” means being chased out of your school.
    “Diversity” means being chased out of your job.
    “Diversity” Means Chasing Down the Last White Person.
    “Diversity” means White Genocide

    Anti-whites expect an entire race to disappear from the face of the earth without even mentioning, not even whispering about it.

    Nobody’s flooding Africa with Non-Africans and giving them free health care, affirmative action and special privileges.

    Only White Countries are doing it, only White children are affected, and only White politicians are allowing it.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

    Global warming becomes climate change and then morphs again. Motive never changes: wealth redistribution through theft, more taxation (ie theft) and bigger government.

    ENOUGH. NO more. Parasites OUT.

    It really is absurd that only white countries are expected to let in everyone else, while everyone else gets to keep their countries relatively homogeneous. Talk about a double standard…

    I suppose Third World countries like African and Latin American ones can reasonably claim they have enough unemployment in their own countries that they can’t afford any immigrants (though if said immigrants had money to open a business, that wouldn’t even be an argument, because they’d be employing others, buying supplies, and spending money). But I wouldn’t even begrudge them wanting to keep their societies homogeneous; that’s their business.

    But why don’t we see leftists protesting Japan or Taiwan not letting people immigrate, only letting some people in as guest workers? Why does nobody get upset with the Gulf States for doing the same?

    Only historically European majority countries are expected to let the world in. But indeed, why should we, alone, be expected to?
