CO2 isn't the strongest greenhouse gas, it's just the one for which we have measured concentrations over multiple ice ages. Did you know that ice cores from the Greenland ice field show weather went from the temperature climate we have today to a full ice age in just 10 years? Many scientists though...

Oops. People stopped posting. Don't let me stop you, I really want to hear what you have to say. I feel the debt can be paid in a reasonable time, then we can completely eliminate one major tax; which tax is the question. But what do you think? As for only paying down to 25% of the current debt leve...

I worked for TransAlta from November 1995 through June 1996. They produced all the power for southern and central Alberta, including Calgary a...

The GST is not even being used to pay down the debt solely. It has itself tied in other programmes. GST takes in about 28 billion dollars every year. So when we have this so called surplus which was this year what 13.2 billion going down towards our debt? Where is the other 15 billion going? If GST...

I set a limit of 30 days for this poll. Let's stay on target, the fourth option is to slowly pay down the debt while slowly reducing tax. This won't free much money because tax reductions mean there won't be much available to make payments to the debt, and slow debt reduction mean the interest won't...

Assume for the moment that the government was able to completely pay off the debt. Which tax would you eliminate? There are 3 major federal taxes: Personal Income tax, Corporate Income tax, GST. Once the debt is gone you can get rid of one, but not two and certainly not all three. The government nee...
