Canada’s new finance minister is smart, which means Chrystia Freeland must know the first words out of her mouth about green energy following her appointment by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau were nonsense.
Asked about the future of green energy, she said: “To (the) question about decarbonization as part of our economic plan going forward: Of course it has to be part of it.
“I think all Canadians understand that the restart of our economy needs to be green. It also needs to be equitable. It needs to be inclusive. And we need to focus very much on jobs and growth.”
While it sounds lovely, this mimics Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s absurd and naive rhetoric that green energy is going to magically lead us out of the COVID-19 recession, making us cleaner and richer than we were before.
It’s utter gibberish. COVID-19 hasn’t changed the laws of physics.
