Civil War Brewing at the U. of Alberta
Now this is indeed interesting.  Anthony Watts, over at, is reporting that the University of Alberta is about to step all over its Johnson, by honoring a famous AGW Kook.  And many graduates are on the war path.

Quote:Suzuki Climate Theater at the University of Alberta Sparks Outrage.  Outrage over University of Alberta Honorary Degree to David Suzuki Expands into Calls for Investigation into Rigged Climate Change Policy says Friends of Science.

Friends of Science Society says outrage has erupted in Alberta over the April 10, 2018 announcement, reported in the Edmonton Journal, that Dr. David Suzuki would be awarded an honorary degree at this year’s convocation. Despite Suzuki’s success as host of the popular CBC show “The Nature of Things,” in recent years his anti-pipeline/anti-oil/climate change catastrophe rhetoric has influentially led to pipeline blockades keeping Alberta oil sands product landlocked, exemplified in Suzuki’s blog article of April 19, 2018.

The public outcry comes from thousands of University of Alberta graduates in the sciences, engineering and business, many of whom are now jobless thanks to a long-term strategic attack on Alberta’s oil sands in the “Tar Sands Strategy,” an economic siege, funded by numerous foreign funds, as reported by the Financial Post on Feb. 9, 2018.

In 2011, Dr. Suzuki hosted a documentary co-produced with CBC entitled “The Tipping Point: Age of the Oil Sands.” Despite a plethora of factual oil sands information available from Alberta Environment and various industry organizations, the filmmakers included only one industry expert and reported by omission and conjecture, according to critics.

The research and the documentary drove virulent hatred against the oil sands world-wide and the term ‘dirty oil’ was coined by anti-oil sands activists.
Many Canadians say climate policies have been rigged by foreign funded ENGOs and are calling for a repeal of any policies stemming from the advocacy by groups and individuals like Dr. Suzuki. In 2013, the Canadian Chamber of Commerce reckoned that Canada was losing $50 million a day due to pipeline blockades.

Friends of Science Society says climate change is a handy ‘umbrella’ for what they say is simply a trade war cloaked in green.

If they go through with this presentation, there could be a huge riot.  I want to see how this all ends.  S13

It may be the Russians who are behind this. They do not like to see competition for their petroleum in the West. They want to keep all of Europe dependent upon their Siberian oil. I am surprised they have not been able to sabotage the British North Sea oil industry.

Right now, the USA and Canada are both net oil exporters, and could bail out Europe if Russia threatened to cut off their Siberian oil. As long as this remains the case, Russia is economically doomed to third-rate status, and Putin knows it.
Suzuki is Canada's equivalent to Al Gore, both got filthy rich pushing global warming. The Australians made a fool out of Suzuki a few years back. Suzuki is a geneticist, not an environmentalist, his specialty is fruit fly genetics.

The true purpose of democracy is not to select the best leaders — a clearly debatable obligation — but to facilitate the prompt and peaceful removal of obviously bad ones. 
Incidentally, here is what Canadians are having to do in order to keep the oil moving, even if it isn't what it should be.

The support of Suzuki reminds me of the attack on EPA Secretary Pruitt.

The anti-science people love disinformation.
Here is more on Alberta outrage at Trudeau, and the possibility of Canada's breakup.

I doubt the idiot will be re-elected in October.
