David Suzuki unmasked as clueless – unable to answer very basic questions on topics he sternly lectures us about…

For at least 20 years dear reader, I have viewed David Suzuki as a snake oil salesman. He lives a luxury life with multiple homes while lecturing us to make do with less. He’s paid to fly around the world where he lies and gives people bad information. He only takes softball questions and has […]

Climate reality kicks the butt of climate hysteria…

Graphs of the month courtesy of Dr. Roy Spencer and featured in posts at both his site and WUWT. Remember this dear reader, all those scary doomsday predictions of catastrophic man-made global warming are based on computer models. Computer models that are, to be polite, utter garbage.

Quote of the Day, April 4th, 2013…

An excellent read from Robert Tracinski at Real Clear Politics. A theory with this many holes in it would be have been thrown out long ago, if not for the fact that it conveniently serves the political function of indicting fossil fuels as a planet-destroying evil and allowing radical environmentalists to put a modern, scientific […]

Alberta – Upgrading vis-a-vis refining…

In the Good Friday edition of the Globe and Mail, the Report on Business section had an article on Total SA and it’s sale and writedown of its portion of the now suspended Voyageur Upgrader project. Attached to the story was an interesting graphic on the five operating upgraders in Alberta. Technical full load output […]

Getting value added products from the Alberta Oil Sands…

It’s been a busy couple of weeks. Lets catch up a bit. For me, one of the biggest bits of news was the announcement by Williams Energy Canada that it will build a $900 million propane dehydrogenation (PDH) facility. We need more value added products from the Oil Sands to be produced here in Alberta. […]

Canadian REIT’s, foreign assets…

February is slipping away. Two items in the Financial Post a week ago caught my attention. Canadian REIT’s with foreign assets. The existing one that I have considered is the Dundee International REIT, which currently has all of its assets in Germany. If the trend continues investors will have to pay more than $11 per […]

Mali needs our help…

People like to think Canada can have a positive influence in the world. Sometimes, that means Canadians have to fight. Mali is one of those places. On Wednesday, French President François Hollande personally asked Mr. Harper to extend Canada’s contribution of one C-17 transport plane beyond the week Ottawa offered, as well as to extend […]

Guns are not the problem…

In the aftermath of the horrible Newtown shootings, the folks who like to pretend they care are renewing their attacks on citizens owning guns. These attacks on gun ownership are built on wild emotion, abuse, wrong information and bad research. I came across this video at SDA where Lee Doren takes on one revved up […]

One of the things I love about Electronic Dance Music (EDM) is how so many of the songs just grab me so firmly. Here’s a shorter version of one of those songs. And an interview with Nadia Ali.

Real Warships, Real Icebreakers…

Another interesting read from Liberal Senator Colin Kenny in Monday’s National Post. Canada is down to two antique destroyers, 12 middle-aged frigates and one active submarine, with two more promised sometime soon. That’s what is available to defend a nation of slightly less than 10 million square kilometres, largely surrounded by water. Official navy documents […]
