David Suzuki and the rest of us Canadians, should be very upset at the current Conservative plan on climate change. This conservative "green plan," is not a sign of change. It is a sign of greed, and is exactly the type of thing that we have all become to expect from them, and from the greedy people who elect them. They continue to pad the pockets of the people who are directly responsible for our current global warming situation. The oil industry! There is one single, simple, solution to this "global warming" problem. It would require a complete lifestyle change, and a wake up call to all its inhabitants. The current trend of government, allowing industry to unethically pollute the air, will only cease, if we make this drastically needed change. This plan that I am proposing, has been grossly overlooked because of the amount of current monies that this plan is a direct threat to. It has also been shunned because it requires Canadian to get involved, instead of being a hypnotized and lazy puppet to the system. Fearful, uneducated people still believe all of the misinformation about the validity of this plan. Hemp/Cannabis/marijuana is a simple solution that is a direct threat to the oil industry. All of the products made with oil can be directly replaced by using hemp. And it can be done in a safer, more eco friendly manner. It is also the answer to processing tones of CO2, as cannabis processes more air than any other known plant species. The resulting infrastructure and jobs could be the answer to world's continuing CO2 problem. But the governments don't want people to know the truth. They still misinform people about the dangers of this miracle plant. Cannabis is a scheduled drug for one single unjustifiable reason. The governmental addiction to oil revenues, and the power it provides its supporters. And in case you have forgotten, I will tell you, again, the one and only real reason that it cannabis/hemp is so dangerous... “The only danger that Cannabis poses to humanity is its direct threat to the oil industry.” And, oh yes I’m sure the drug companies are part of the equation as well. But as long as we keep electing the officials into office that mirror this greedy agenda, we will remain stuck here, with government putting the burden of climate change on the backs of its hard working people, instead of on the backs the people who are directly responsible for this problem. If you are saying that my proposal is not the answer, I ask you to ask yourself one easy question? “What makes it wrong, and why do you really feel that way? When you can honestly and ethically answer that question perhaps on educated fact, you will see through this smoke screen. I dare anyone to discredit my proposal, so long as your efforts to discredit me are done without greedy intent, keeping in perspective a peaceful coexistence of nature, and if you’ve done some research about the sustainability of it all. If we started down the path that I am proposing, than the power and control of national destiny would be out of the hands of a certain selected few narrow-minded people, and into the conscious hands of the people who would push for real change.
