It's 2021.

It's difficult to know what to write, given that it seems so obvious to me (a trained scientist) that new coal mines should not be discussed during a climate emergency, especially for a province that has abundant sun and wind, and potential for geothermal energy. If you do not already grasp this, then I don't think there is anything else I can say to convince you. It has been talked about loud and clear for the past 10 years, the past two years especially - in 2019 a series of climate rallies were held, culminating one which 10,000 Albertans marched through Edmonton to rally against inaction on climate change. The scientific concept of GHGs causing a climate emergency isn't even difficult to grasp, so if you can't do so then you are likely not fit to be in office. Children can grasp it. Ask a child if they think we should destroy mountains so we can pollute the water and atmosphere and they will wonder which super villain you are, or whether you think you live in 1950.

No coal, please. Stop this colonial greed and destruction.
