PETITION: No Green Reset
Globalists are advocating for a green reset by pushing us to transition from fossil fuels to “green energy.” They believe this shift is necessary for the future of our planet. However, many people disagree with this idea and argue that it is unnecessary, unwanted, and unacceptable. If you share these concerns, you can sign a petition to voice your opposition.
The petition currently has 25,024 signatures, with a goal of reaching 25,000. People from various countries all over the world, including Afghanistan, Albania, Algeria, and American Samoa, have come together to express their disagreement with the green reset.
Recently, FortisBC vice-president Doug Slater advised Metro Vancouver to resist the pressure from climate activists and not ban natural gas for new residential buildings. He argues that such a ban would limit consumer choice and potentially hinder affordability. Slater believes that pursuing a diversified approach to energy systems is a more sensible solution, one that prioritizes energy affordability and does not overload the electrical grid.
In May, the Vancouver city council rejected a proposal to ban natural gas in new residential builds. The ban was originally suggested by Councillor Adriane Carr, who wanted to eliminate natural gas stoves and fireplaces in new homes and condos in order to achieve ‘net-zero’ emissions by 2050. Carr claimed that natural gas poses a threat to both human health and the environment. However, the council decided to rework the motion to align with the new provincial government Zero Carbon Step Code. Victoria, on the other hand, has already implemented a gas prohibition for new homes since last August.
Supporters of natural gas argue that it provides an accessible and affordable energy alternative for Vancouver residents. Jason Wolfe, director of energy solutions for FortisBC, emphasizes the importance of allowing consumers to choose what makes the most sense for them. Both electric and natural gas systems have the potential to reduce emissions and contribute to a more sustainable future.
Slater suggests that importing natural gas from outside the province could further reduce emissions, citing a report by the B.C. Utilities Commission. This approach could lead to significant emissions reductions and make the transition to renewable and low-carbon fuels more affordable.
Meanwhile, the debate over natural gas continues in Victoria, with some city councillors proposing a ban on gas ovens and heating for rezoned developments. They argue that this is necessary to meet the city’s targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. However, developers and builders have raised concerns about their ability to fully transition from gas heating to electricity due to technological limitations.
Despite these challenges, FortisBC remains optimistic about the future of natural gas. They believe that by using renewable gas and hydrogen, the province can transition to a net-zero gas system by 2050. Additionally, they believe that customers should have the freedom to choose their energy source, as this will help keep costs down.
In conclusion, the debate over the green reset and the transition from fossil fuels to green energy continues. While some argue that this shift is necessary for the future of our planet, others believe it is unnecessary, unwanted, and unacceptable. The petition against the green reset has gained significant support, with people from all over the world expressing their concerns. As the discussion continues, it is important to consider the different perspectives and find a balanced approach that prioritizes both environmental sustainability and consumer choice.
