More Denial by the Friends of Science in the Calgary Herald

Re: "Wildrose vows to kill $2B carbon capture plan," May 25.
The Wildrose party's plan to scrap the $2-billion carbon capture and sequestration program makes a lot of sense.
Worldwide, there is a groundswell of public opinion to take a second look at the alleged role of man-made carbon dioxide in driving global climate change.
This change of opinion is driven by emerging new scientific data.
The Kyoto claims have never been proven. Therefore, public programs should not be based on highly suspect arguments. The taxpayers' money can be put to far better use.
