Europe Shivers Due to AGW Aka “Human Forced “ Global Warming? Ontario's Junta Picks Pockets

Global Warming/ "Human Forced" of course-  Oh wait a minute it's freakin' freezing!

 "Human Forced" Just taking note of yet another rebrand... as Ontario begins the new year with a big fat carbon tax- Driving up costs across the board- And further impoverishing Ontarians.
Ontario being the biggest have not province in Canada- 3rd world like is the best way to describe it!

 The latest tax grab from the junta in Ontario

 Unfortunately the small hydro rebates Premier Kathleen Wynne is doling out, as she finds herself at 13 per cent in the polls largely because her green energy program has made electricity in Ontario the highest-priced in North America, pales in comparison to what Ontarians will be shelling out due to her new “revenue tool:” the job- and economy-hurting carbon tax.

 Ontario businesses are already losing jobs to neighbouring jurisdictions, and we’ve seen a lot of capital and job flight to jurisdictions in neighbouring areas,” said Nathan MacDonald, policy and communications manager for the Ajax-Pickering Board of Trade.

 I recently invested in a gas stove in order to escape from the atrocious cost of hydro inflicted upon us by the premier of Ontario. Little did I know that the cost of natural gas was to increase, thus negating my decision to make this purchase.
Am I to believe that my contribution will force me to use less gas to keep warm? Or is this increased price simply a tax to enrich the coffers at Queen’s Park? I am unlikely to freeze myself, so it must simply be another tax grab.
That is not what the people of Ontario need at this time and it is likely the main reason for the loss of manufacturing jobs, with more to come.

 By persistently describing cap-and-trade as “not very much” added to a household, the Star has failed to remind readers that the largest and least-efficient industries are exempted, so cap-and-trade is a licence to continue polluting.
Getting poorer every day here in Ontario-

A glance at the global frigid temps– Including in Southern Italy! Where my Dad was born and spent his formative years- Where it  snowed BUT never stayed on the ground- He was surprised when i told him  that a "cold snap bites Italy" 

Rome, January 5 - Civil protection authorities have advised Italians to prepare for extremely cold weather as what meteorologists have dubbed the 'Epiphany blizzard' threatens to bring snow and ice to much of the country from Thursday afternoon
 . People are being advised to limit travel as far as possible particularly in those central and southern regions that normally see little snowfall

Here in Southern Ontario it’s frigidly cold at the moment and has been for the last few days-
-11C or 13 F right now
Tonight - 13 C or 9 F
Thankfully the furnace and my now carbon taxed heating costs will get a break in a few days
