    Here is a question that can FORCE M. P. ANDREW SCHEER AND M. P. MAXIME BERNIER TO begin to cooperate at least some..... The situation along the Bay of Fundy is too serious to ignore in the light of the melting that is happening this summer on the land based Greenland Ice Pack.

    "If average ocean levels rose by eight to ten cms (3 or 4 inches) could high tide...
    ... rise by one meter in the Isthmus of Chignecto in Nova Scotia, Canada?


    This question is logical because the geography of Canada's Bay of Fundy produces the world's highest tides. In my part of Nova Scotia in Guysborough County there is very little funnelling of tidal waters......... so high tide is only about one to one point five meters above low tide.

    In the eastern area of the Bay of Fundy high tide levels are up by ten to fifteen meters."

    https://www.bayoffundy.com/about/highest-tides/

    [​IMG]


    The fact that the Bay of Fundy is nearly two hundred miles long means that the previous high tide waters CANNOT FULLY DRAIN before the next high tide waters pile on top of them. Also the land form of the Bay of Fundy has a funnelling effect that produces the world's most extreme tides. Anchorage, Alaska has the second highest tides in the world and thus.... I fear that people living along the Bay of Fundy and Anchorage, Alaska should be very interested in every new replica of Sorek that Israel and other nations build because mega-scale desalination of ocean water for agriculture in nations with lots of deserts is really good news for them!

    In my opinion an article put out by the CBC can make either M. P. Andrew Scheer or M. P. Maxime Bernier Prime Minister of Canada in October IF THE TWO OF THEM WILL BEGIN TO DISCUSS WHAT REALLY MATTERS REGARDING THE FUTURE OF MANY HOMES ALONG THE BAY OF FUNDY BETWEEN NOVA SCOTIA, NEW BRUNSWICK AND THE STATE OF MAINE!

    This is also highly relevant to people living in Anchorage, Alaska because they have the world's SECOND most extreme tides after the Bay of Fundy.

    Although Mr. Maxime Bernier is my number one choice for the new Prime Minister of Canada in our October election I also worry that Splitting the Vote can lead to P. M. Justin Trudeau being given another four years in power and frankly..... I don't trust him to be objective and honest with Canadians and simply admit that a Carbon Tax will do NOTHING to protect the eastern Bay of Fundy from the threat of rising ocean levels!

    The COLOSSAL amounts of H2O being ADDED TO ANTARCTICA
    to my thinking prove that the implementation of a Carbon Tax or Cap and Trade System in
    Canada would do ESSENTIALLY NOTHING TO PROTECT LAND ALONG the Bay of Fundy
    from the possible threat of rising ocean levels!

    NASA Study: Mass Gains of Antarctic Ice Sheet Greater than Losses

    Isn't it amazing how QUIET Mr. Al Gore and various Green Party candidates were about these statistics????

    Since Canada produces less than two percent of global atmospheric emissions it is fairly obvious that our implementing a Carbon Tax..... and spending billions, tens of billions or even hundreds of billions of dollars on it over the long term..... would do very, very little to protect vulnerable land from the threat of rising ocean levels!




    Bay of Fundy | Tides | New Brunswick, Canada


    So... to my thinking the way to protect the vulnerable land along the Bay of Fundy is to promote large scale desalination of ocean water in Israel, Australia, California, Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Morocco and any other nation with lots of desert and people who can use desalinated water for agriculture or drinking or......

    Should Sorek 2 be in Australia or California?

    Thank you for that image........
    If I understand this correctly this means that relatively speaking we cannot yet see a significant
    melting of the Greenland Ice Sheet in spite of the record breaking melt back in 2012 or so far in 2019?

    That is certainly encouraging..... and it may have been you who let me know that the land form of
    Greenland is somewhat like a bowl which means that most of the H2O that melts during the summer will
    probably reform into ice during the winter?

    You have made me somewhat less worried about the short term results for my friends who live along the
    Bay of Fundy and Anchorage, Alaska. Thank you for that..... but I still do think that mega-scale desalination of ocean water in nations
    with lots of desert is so much more logical and productive than a Carbon Tax or Cap and Trade System?


    Greenland Sees Massive Ice Melt
    (August 8, 2019)
    PPC leader Mr. Maxime Bernier has urged us to not be alarmist but what I understand him to really mean by this is to not go off and spend billions, tens of billions and hundreds of billions of dollars on a plan that really will do very little, perhaps almost nothing to really protect vulnerable towns and cities from the threat of rising ocean levels?

    I personally really like the idea of Canada withdrawing from the Paris Accord.... because it promotes solutions that will not protect vulnerable communities from the threat of rising ocean levels!

    An astonishingly well informed member of this forum gave us an explanation for climate change several
    years ago that may indicate that the methane is beginning to be released from the permafrost in the Arctic.

    Methane has an insulation capability about seventy one times greater than CO2 has.
    Mr. Maxime Bernier is correct.... we should not give in to alarmism and embark on some sort of
    hairball Carbon Tax or Cap and Trade System here in Canada because it will cost Canadian companies
    and Canadian taxpayers tens of billions of dollars..... and will NOT do much of anything to protect the parts of Canada that are especially
    vulnerable to rising ocean levels.

    IF.... CPC candidates and PPC candidates all across Canada would cooperate to a degree and
    would discuss what really could work to assist in stabilization of the climate...... they could
    grab the attention of the media away from P. M. Justin Trudeau who sure seems intent on
    forcing Liberal M. P's and candidates to toe the party line and discuss nothing other than
    the politically correct Al Gore plan that frankly........
    seems like a joke to my thinking.

    Canada produces less than two percent of Global Atmospheric gasses so how is our implementing a
    Carbon Tax going to protect the Bay of Fundy from the threat of rising ocean levels???????/

    IT WOULD NOT!!!!!!

    When a political party gains a high level of control of the media decisions can be made for
    very different reasons than those that are published and promoted to the general public.


    To what degree are supposedly Green organizations being used to....

    Oh..... M. P. Bill Casey might just be ready to walk across the floor to a party where he is free to express his opinion. He has been awfully quiet but you can be assured that he has been thinking about this idea that I sent to him through Facebook and e-mail a while ago.



    M. P. Bill Casey... President Trump has a 4.3 trillion dollar problem....

    If.... the physics and mathematics of the Bay of Fundy combined with the Greenland land based ice pack melt is the
    key to getting Canadians to understand how astoundingly obtuse a Carbon Tax would be..... then this would be a major
    step toward keeping the province of Alberta within Canada....... .because the Alberta Independence Movement has gained
    a great deal of momentum since the election of P. M. Justin Trudeau.

    There are several massive problems confronting the Canadian, USA and world economy that are so serious that they could inspire the CPC and the PPC candidates to begin discussions all across Canada. One is how best to begin to make up for the terrible way that Ottawa has treated Alberta for these past six decades!

    The threat of rising ocean levels in the eastern area of the Bay of Fundy needs to be discussed seriously because a Carbon Tax would be completely ineffective whereas promotion and financing of large scale desalination of ocean water has many obvious advantages. Every cubic meter of sea water that is desalinated and added to the water table of Israel, Jordan, California, Australia, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Morocco or any other nation with lots of desert is great news for towns and cities that are vulnerable to the threat of rising ocean levels. This actually could be much less expensive over the long term than the construction of dikes, sea walls and levees.

    CIA economist Mr. Jim Rickards back in 2014 warned us about the possibility of a one hundred trillion dollar meltdown in the world's seven hundred and ten trillion dollar Derivatives markets that could spread like a virus to other markets. This could look like another 1929 but there are a number of possible ways around this that........ could be led by the province of Alberta..... as opposed to Ottawa........ that has been behaving in far too Neo- Malthusian a manner since 1974.



    CW Alexander for Alberta Independence
    Wow!!!!!!

    I have a very simple two part plan to keep Alberta within Canada.

    1. A five hundred dollar per month unconditional but taxable income supplement to all thirty seven point six million Canadians that needs to be financed in the same way as much of the money supply of Canada was created from 1938 to 1974. This would cost roughly nineteen billion dollars in 2020.

    2. A one hundred billion dollar repayment toward the six hundred and eleven billion dollars that Ottawa taxed out of Alberta in a manner largely made necessary by the really unwise error by then Prime Minister Pierre E. Trudeau back in 1974. Once this error is properly understood perhaps we will decide that Alberta should be repaid three hundred billion but it must be created in the same manner as Ms. Betty Krawczyk explains in her blog:

    Responding to a BEAR market vs a Bull market?

    I did the following video back in 2010....



    I wrote the following in my 2008 campaign:

    Mr. Carl Cantrell and I even had some fun with all this back in 2007:

    My two somewhat humorous submissions for $25 million Virgin Earth Challenge.


    I admit that I did try my best to understand how a Carbon Tax or Cap and Trade System might perhaps work.... but as you can see....... it has always been the alternative theory on stabilization of the climate that I have been promoting for over twelve years!

    Things are about to get very interesting here in Central - Nova, N.S., Canada!



    Country music star George Canyon to run for Conservatives in Nova Scotia
    Mr. George Canyon has himself a truly worthy opponent in Mr. Al Muir who within two hours of meeting
    I was trying my very best to convince him to represent The People's Party of Canada here in Central - Nova rather than
    for me to do it........... for many reasons.

    Mr. Al Muir, in my opinion, does a phenomenal job of listening to all of us who are willing to show up to the PPC
    meetings that he hosts at his restaurant.

    I consider Mr. Muir to be a better writer than I am and as this campaign gets into full swing I will
    elaborate on more reasons why I wanted him to be the candidate rather than me even though I did
    do all the paperwork to represent the PPC as their candidate! Here is a link to one of his writings:

    Ivany Report leaves out direction for growing N.S. economy.


    I have a question for People's Party of Canada candidate Mr. Al Muir as well as for Conservative Party of Canada candidate Mr. George Canyon. My apologies if my question is stupid............. but the mathematics of this do worry me quite a lot and I have several Math and Physics teachers working on this over the summer.


    "If average ocean levels rose by eight to ten cms (3 or 4 inches) could high tide...
    ... rise by one meter in the Isthmus of Chignecto in Nova Scotia, Canada?


    This question is logical because the geography of Canada's Bay of Fundy produces the world's highest tides. In my part of Nova Scotia in Guysborough County there is very little funnelling of tidal waters......... so high tide is only about one to one point five meters above low tide.

    In the eastern area of the Bay of Fundy high tide levels are up by ten to fifteen meters."

    Actually... .Mr. Maxime Bernier and President Trump would get along quite nicely..... and I think that Andrew Scheer deep down admires President Trump but will not admit it to the Canadian public.......

    The Arctic is burning and Greenland is melting, thanks to record heat
    Blazes are pumping record amounts of CO2 into the air, which could make the problem worse



    Greenland Is the Center of the World
    The Arctic island offers a harrowing reminder of the environmental damage, and political dangers, already imposed by climate change.

    I do hope that you are right to not be worried about this but......
    although I do believe that a Carbon Tax is indeed a Tax Scam but.... deliberately turning deserts green through large scale desalination of ocean water may be one of the only possible ways to begin to prevent another 1929 because in 2014 CIA economist Jim Rickards warned us about a possible ONE HUNDRED TRILLION dollar devaluation of the worldwide SEVEN HUNDRED AND TEN trillion dollare Derivatives market??????

    FORGET IRAN, IRAQ, UKRAINE
    THIS IS WHERE WWIII STARTS...



    Traditional politics would involve saying NOTHING ABOUT THIS during an election campaign but....
    I am not really a politician and I believe that pressure should be put on all major Canadian political leaders
    to rise above their concerns over their own careers and genuinely discuss what they believe should be done
    about the possible threat posed by the melting of a large amount of ice off the land based Greenland Ice Pack.....
    not to mention the West Antarctic Ice Sheet?

    Antarctic ice sheet is melting, but rising bedrock below could slow it down

    I just got back an exceptional comment on this:

    Interesting........ now I don't know if he is correct or not but Dr. James Hansen did state that the last time that atmospheric temperatures rose by about three degrees ocean levels rose by about twenty meters over four centuries.

    This could be really good news for the Israeli desalination company that is nicknamed Sorek?
    Should Sorek 2 be in Australia or California?

    The reason it is unreasonable to try and turn the deserts green is because deserts are natural and caused by Hadley cells and will always be naturally dry. It would be like spitting into the wind.

    So what would you prefer........
    another 1929 style Bear Market that plunges the USA and world economy into another Great Depression........
    or........
    waste a few bucks on turning deserts green in order to produce some excess in the supply of food?????????

    Why waste money on something that will not change? There is still plenty of arable land but much of it is unused or blocked by environmentalists. BTW, guess how they would react to changing the desert.

    Yes........ a number of well financed and well planned proposal were put forward to desalinate ocean water on a large scale
    and pipeline the desalinated water to Los Vegas....... but the Greens and Environmentalists were able to kill all of those proposals........ .but..... . Mr. Donald J. Trump is President.........
    and he has the courage / chutzpah to play the role of the bad guy..........

    ... and if anybody on this third rock can humble the left wingie dingie wingnuts..... it is President Donald J. Trump!!!!!!!!

    Oh....... as he does this many more Christians will become afraid of him....... so...... I am thinking that I might just have to
    see if I can take some of the negative publicity off President Trump and onto myself???????

    But........ CIA economist Mr. Jim Rickards back in 2014 did warn us that the seven hundred and ten trillion dollar worldwide DERIVATIVES market is facing what could potentially turn into a ONE HUNDRED TRILLION DOLLAR MELTDOWN that could spread to other markets.

    President Donald J. Trump did mention buying Greenland at a time when it seems to me that many of us Canadians should take his statements seriously and perhaps assist because back in 1974 P. M. Pierre E. Trudeau set in motion a series of events that has led Canada to the place where we are in no position to protect the Arctic..... .so..........

    YOU SIR.... .and each of the M. L. A. candidates who campaigned along with you ARE PERFECT to be actors in a series of semi- reality science fiction films set perhaps in an alternate universe from 2012 - 2020 and on and on and on........ (one in which voter fraud in the USA is dealt with and Mr. Mitt Romney is elected President).

    What is happening in Greenland this summer could force Canada's political right to begin to look at the larger picture in a way that will truly defeat the silly idea of a Carbon Tax.

    Here is the question that I believe can be used to defeat the idea of a Carbon Tax........
    "If average ocean levels rose by eight to ten cms (3 or 4 inches) could high tide...
    ... rise by one meter in the Isthmus of Chignecto in Nova Scotia, Canada?

    This question is logical because the geography of Canada's Bay of Fundy produces the world's highest tides. In my part of Nova Scotia in Guysborough County there is very little funnelling of tidal waters......... so high tide is only about one to one point five meters above low tide.

    In the eastern area of the Bay of Fundy high tide levels are up by ten to fifteen meters."

    I wrote the following yesterday:

    Obviously........ since Canada produces less than two percent of global atmospheric CO2 a Carbon Tax would DO NOTHING to protect the eastern Bay of Fundy from the threat posed by rising ocean levels. So far..... the amount of H2O ADDED to Antarctica has prevented ocean levels from rising but that will not likely continue for too many more years considering what is happening in the Arcitic. I've been promoting the alternative theory on stabilization of the climate of large scale desalination of ocean water to turn deserts green since 2007.

    I have NEVER promoted a Carbon Tax because I felt that it was A JOKE PLAYED on an under-informed population. But... I sure do like this idea:
    Israel has already developed the technology needed to accomplish this but.......... Canada's politically left government is too close to the enemies of Israel to give the Israelis credit for what they have set the stage for.

    (MY POINT IS THAT A REPUBLIC OF WESTERN CANADA ARTISTIC ALTERNATIVE CURRENCY NOTE COULD PLAY A HUGE ROLE IN DEALING WITH THE IMPENDING DEVALUATION OF DERIVATIVES AND I BELIEVE THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP WOULD VISIT ALBERTA AND ALL OF YOU IF YOU WOULD PUT SOMETHING TOGETHER)

    (Yes... earning them would be taxable just like earning Calgary Dollars.... so create one part of it as a company...... one part of it as a profit making film production cooperative and perhaps another part of it as a profit making kibbutz Ltd.)

    (ALL OF THIS IS INCIDENTALLY AN ATTEMPT TO ACTUALLY ADDRESS THE PROBLEMS IN CANADA THAT HAVE ALBERTANS CLOSER TO SEPARATING FROM CANADA THAN AT ANY OTHER TIME IN MY SIXTY YEARS)!

    HEY DAVE... .MR. MAXIME BERNIER WILL BE IN NEW BRUNSWICK AND NOVA SCOTIA SEPTEMBER 18 -20 so footage of you and him watching the tidal bore could become artistic gold that could back up a shift in the way money is created...... and by whom?

    What power source will you use to desalinate these HUGE quantities of water?

    Personally..... I don't care if it is done with solar power or with natural gas or whatever good source of energy is available at each location.

    Israel will likely use large quantities of natural gas to fuel their new desalination facilities so I suppose that the newest desalinations facilities for the nation of Jordan may also use natural gas.

    We now have one technology by itself.... that is far, far, far better than a Carbon Tax or Cap and Trade System. This one development makes further talk of the massive bureaucracy necessary for a Carbon Tax....... ENTIRELY UNNECESSARY!

    I personally am NOT worried much at all about the use of fossil fuels for desalination .....
    I am worried about desalinating a similar amount of H2O over the coming
    five to ten decades as is melting off the land based Greenland Ice Pack, the West Antarctic Ice Sheet and
    the world's glaciers because I want to see ocean levels kept stable..... and maybe even lowered perhaps fifteen to thirty centimeters as a buffer zone just in case.

    B.C. company says it is sucking carbon from air, making fuel
    But... it does look like eventually solar powered desalination will be low cost as the technology improves.

    The Sahara Forest Project combines existing technologies to generate power and grow cucumbers, barley, and arugula in the desert using just sunlight and seawater.

    Hi Emily:

    Back in 2008 I cast my ballot for Green Party Leader Ms. Elizabeth May because when she replied to my
    campaign writing for Municipal Councillor she told me that "turning deserts green was one part of a full
    response to climate change." Her answer was extremely useful to me as well as encouraging.

    Ms. May also stated that if she was elected M. P. for Central - Nova she would make Central - Nova a hub for
    film production. Semi-reality science fiction films set in 1939 and / or 2012 - 2020 could become a major
    job creator for Central - Nova for many reasons. Here is the quotation from Carl Cantrell that was in my
    2008 campaign writing that Ms. May responded to:

    "So how is our problem of continental drying causing global warming? It all has to do with vegetation and sunlight. When sun light hits a plant, it causes a process which we call photosynthesis where the energy from the sun light creates oxygen for us to breathe, water for us to drink, and is stored as sugar for plants and animals to use. When the same sun light hits the soil, all of its energy turns into heat and is radiated back into the atmosphere.. ."

    "Therefore, the less vegetation you have on the planet, the more sunlight is being turned into heat and the warmer the planet becomes...."

    "Just take a look at any satellite picture of the earth showing heat and you will see that our deserts are the warmest spots on the planet by far. More heat is being generated by just one of the top four or five deserts than by all of our cities combined.... "

    "The truth is that you can do more to decrease global warming by just reducing the average temperature for the Sahara Desert by one or two degrees than if we humans completely quit using fossil fuels and returned to the cave…."

    "So, how would you start working to resolve this problem? Easy, cool the deserts and get some vegetation growing on them as soon as possible. But the method is much more complex than that. You have to use the prevailing trade winds in relation to the deserts to get the best results as quickly as possible and it will be extremely expensive…."

    "Then we build desalination plants along the coast near these water sheds and pipe water to the tops or ridges of the water sheds…"

    "We need to start working on this as soon as possible because, if the planet reaches a point to where it is warming faster than our technology can possibly stop or reverse this warming trend, then our planet is lost and all life will cease to exist on this planet within a relatively short period of time. We will need to start with the largest and hottest deserts because cooling them will have the greatest benefit in the least time (Global Warming II by biologist Carl Cantrell)."

    I now have a question relevant to all PPC and all Green Party candidates all across Canada but it is especially
    relavant to all candidates in areas along the Bay of Fundy for both New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. I have several
    Math and Physics teachers working on this question and spreading it around to interested colleagues and students.

    "If average ocean levels rose by eight to ten cms (3 or 4 inches) could high tide...
    ... rise by one meter in the Isthmus of Chignecto in Nova Scotia, Canada?


    This question is logical because the geography of Canada's Bay of Fundy produces the world's highest tides. In my part of Nova Scotia in Guysborough County there is very little funnelling of tidal waters......... so high tide is only about one to one point five meters above low tide.

    In the eastern area of the Bay of Fundy high tide levels are up by ten to fifteen meters."
    I personally have never promoted a Carbon Tax due to the fact that because Canada produces less than
    two percent of Global Atmospheric Gas emissions it seems unwise for us to commit ourselves to a multi-billion
    dollar burden on taxpayers and companies that depends on cooperation from the USA, China and India.
    So although I believe very firmly in Climate Change itself......... I DO NOT believe in a Carbon Tax or Cap and
    Trade System. I agree with New Mexico biologist and coach Carl Cantrell that mega-scale desalination of
    ocean water for agriculture, reforestation projects and for population centres experiencing shortages of
    water is the way to go. EVERY CUBIC METER OF OCEAN WATER THAT IS DESALINATED AND ADDED
    TO THE WATER TABLE OF ISRAEL, CALIFORNIA, AUSTRALIA, JORDAN, QATAR, SAUDI ARABIA,
    MOROCCO OR TUNISIA IS REALLY GOOD NEWS FOR THE OWNERS OF REAL ESTATE ALONG THE
    BAY OF FUNDY!

    Within two hours of meeting him I was trying my best to convince Mr. Al Muir to represent the PPC here
    in Central- Nova as opposed to my being the candidate. I got my wish and I want to be in contact with the
    Green Party candidates for Nova Scotia and New Brunswick because my question related to the
    possibility of the real estate along the Bay of Fundy being in the position of proverbial canary in the coal
    mine is too serious to ignore.

    Thank you.

    Dennis Tate
