Conservative? Conserving What?

It’s hard to believe the leadership of the so-called conservative party of Canada would push the idea that EVs produce more CO2 than gas-guzzlers. Obviously, they can’t do the maths, like weighing the mass of gasoline that goes into the fuel tanks of gas-guzzlers. My last gas-guzzler eats its weight in gasoline every four years. It’s 13 years old… Some of that ends up as CO2… None of what my Solo EV will eat comes from hydrocarbons. My Solo also weighs a fraction of what my gas-guzzler weighs so the energy/carbon cost of its manufacture will be tiny.

Another reason not to vote PC next election… I just don’t want stupid people running my government. Oh, “Conservative”, means trying to conserve something. Are they trying to conserve the oil-industry which is trying to undo millions of years of carbon sequestration in a century? Are they trying to maintain levels of pollution in cities? Are they trying to waste energy? That’s not very conservative. The PCs are liars.

Then there are the Lieberals. They lie about lots of stuff too. They were years late bringing forth the carbon-tax and promoting EVs. They certainly are not leading the charge to save my planet’s ecosystem. The NDP want my banks and my firearms. They used to be looking out for the little guy but now they just want the power to control my life. That leaves (you know, the green things on trees that are actually doing the work of saving the planet…) the Greens. While I disagree with them about firearms. I think they give higher priority to keeping Earth livable for my descendants and other humans than the other parties.
