LASER TALK: Climate Dismissives Beware!

LASER TALK: Climate Dismissives Beware!
Political parties and politicians wanting to win any election should note that only 2 per cent of Canadians belong to political parties. Thus, their job is to convince 98% of us that their party is worthy of our vote. Here are two things to consider:

  • Canadians want centrist governments
  • According to an October 2016 NANOS poll, three-quarters of Canadians are in favour of a national climate plan to ensure we achieve our international carbon-emission reduction targets.

In conclusion, dismissiveness is a feeling or showing that something is unworthy of consideration. “Climate dismissives” who want to win in any election may want to rethink why they are being dismissive about climate change and carbon pricing. Otherwise, their dismissiveness may be something they regret at election time.
