Snowbirds would be Nobirds Meaning $22 billion loss to US Economy says Friends of Science Citing their New Report and TD Economics






According to the Friends of Science Society’s report analysis by energy economist Robert Lyman “Climate Change Targets for Canada – Examining the Implications” the reality of implementing climate change emissions reductions would be very grim. Canadians are renowned as ‘snowbirds’ for their common habit of vacationing in warmer climates like Mexico, Arizona and Hawaii in winter months. The loss of some 500,000 ‘snowbirds’ would decimate these economies too.

“Access to air travel, which is totally dependent on petroleum fuels, would have to be severely limited,” says Lyman, retired economist and federal public servant who spent much of his career working on energy, transportation and environment issues.

Lyman’s assessment is further confirmed by a new Troy Media article published June 22, 2015 that he wrote for Friends of Science entitled “What signing the climate change targets will mean for you: A heart-to-heart conversation with Canadians.”

However, few people would have the money to fly anyway, as Lyman points out that most major industries in Canada would have to be completely shut down in order to reach the emissions reduction targets, leaving millions of Canadians unemployed.

During the meeting of the G7 industrialized countries in June 2015, the group agreed to a “common vision” of supporting the upper end of the latest IPCC recommendation of 40 to 70% reductions by 2050 compared to 2010 recognizing that this challenge can only be met by a global response, as reported in the Wall Street Journal on June 8th, 2015.

However, Lyman points out that would mean reducing emissions by at least 495 megatons, more if Canada’s economy grows at a normal pace. That is equivalent, in today’s terms, to eliminating all oil, gas and coal production; ceasing all transportation by cars, trucks, aircraft and ships; eliminating all use of coal and natural gas for electricity generation; and shutting down a significant portion of Canada’s energy-intensive industries like vehicle manufacturing, cement, pulp and paper, mining and metal fabrication. Reducing emissions this much would cripple the overall economy, while doing virtually nothing to ‘save the planet’ since the growth of emissions in non-OECD countries would continue to grow by leaps and bounds, as shown in the graphs of Figures 140 and 142 of the US EIA 2013 Energy Forecast Report [Forecast link: eia.gov/forecasts/ieo/pdf/0484(2013).pdf]. In fact, if every industrialized country cut emissions by 70%, and the developing countries like China and India continued on their current path, the global emissions would still be higher in 2050 than they are today.

“Reaching these emissions targets would shrink Canada’s ‘carbon footprint’, relative to its economy and population, to levels today seen only in poverty-stricken countries like Haiti, Afghanistan, North Korea and Chad,” says Lyman. “It is difficult to imagine how an energy-hungry, highly developed country whose population is constantly growing through immigration could realistically cut emissions so drastically in so short a time.”

Friends of Science Society recently hosted a distinguished speaker, Dr. Nir Shaviv, whose research shows how the sun drives climate change. Stringent targets may not be necessary.

About

Friends of Science have spent a decade reviewing a broad spectrum of literature on climate change and have concluded the sun is the main driver of climate change, not carbon dioxide (CO2). The core group of the Friends of Science is a growing group of earth, atmospheric and solar scientists, engineers and citizens.

WorldView Mirror, Live on Kickstarter, Helps Drivers Travel Safer This June by Lowering Stress Levels and Eliminating Blind Spots


Houston, TX (PRWEB) June 18, 2015

WorldView Mirror makes traveling easier and safer for vacationers this summer as holiday traffic increases. It gives drivers the ability to keep their eyes on the road while simultaneously checking on passengers and pets, as well as eliminating the hazard of blind spots. WorldView Mirror’s Kickstarter campaign has already raised a total of $ 17,569 through the help of 150 backers.

WorldView Mirror is a total of 46 inches long, making it easier for drivers to switch lanes by increasing visibility and removing blind spots. With a one-inch, convex arch and two adjustable pivot joints, WorldView Mirror is easily adjusted to fit any driver, no matter their height, making it ideal for switching drivers during road trips. It also has a two-point attachment system that easily fits in every car model, so drivers can easily transfer their WorldView Mirror from car to car when traveling.

The design of WorldView Mirror was created to improve driving safety. It gives drivers maximum peripheral vision, while enhancing driver visibility and safety. Having this kind of visibility helps reduce the risk of car accidents and, overall, reduce the stress level of the driver, especially when driving in unfamiliar areas.

“WorldView Mirror was made to keep drivers and their families safe during any season, be it spring, summer, winter, or fall,” said President of SharmaTech, LLC and creator of WorldView Mirror Sumeet Sharma. “With vacationers traveling to their destination getaways, we want them to get there safely. Luckily, with WorldView Mirror, they can. Summer is supposed to be a stress-free time, and we hope that our product will help to decrease stress while driving in unfamiliar or high-traffic places.”

WorldView Mirrors are still available on Kickstarter starting at $ 99, which is just over 50 percent off the market retail price. For more information about WorldView Mirror, visit http://bit.ly/WorldViewMirrorKS or email olivia(at)worldviewmirror(dot)com.

Van Rental Center Announces Push to Serve More Airport Travelers in Response to Recent Travel Report


(PRWEB) June 17, 2015

According to an article published in USA Today on May 18th, this summer will see the largest amount of air travelers on record. It is estimated that U.S. air travel will see 222 million passengers between June 1 and August 31. “While it is the airlines’ responsibility to get travelers from one airport to another, it is up to rental agencies like us to bolster our airport resources to provide these travelers with reliable ground transportation once they land,” says Los Angeles rental agency Van Rental Center. “We have been serving the area for years by providing the cheap van rental Los Angeles travelers have counted on for reliable and affordable transportation.” According to the rental agency, there are several other reasons why they are the “preferred van rental agency for Los Angeles travelers.”


“Increased Capacity” – Many rental car companies try to push small economy vehicles on their clients that may not have enough room for everyone in the family and their luggage. Companies like Van Rental Center offer a wide range of options including an 8 passenger van rental Los Angeles vacationers can rely on for its ability to provide ample space for everyone in the family. “We have vehicles that can carry up to 15 passengers, so large groups do not have to split up or feel cramped,” reports Van Rental Center.
“Incredible Customer Service” – A perk of going with a smaller company instead of a national chain is that Van Rental Center is able to offer personable, one-on-one customer service to address any client desires or issues. Their service representatives assure that with “Van Rental Center, instead of getting the run-around, you will always be able to speak to someone who can help you resolve any questions or issues that you may have with your vehicle.” Yet, they report that issues are uncommon when travelers use their fleet of vans. Van Rental Center takes pride in keeping all of their vehicles in outstanding mechanical and cosmetic shape, and they assure that “when renters drive off the lot, they do so in a van that is clean and running smoothly.”

About Van Rental Center

Customers often find that the quality of the agency’s fleet, matched with the prices for a daily rental, makes for an unmatched value in the field of vehicle rentals. For more information on Van Rental Centers fleet of vehicles or rental rates, travelers can call them today at 1-855-267-VANS or at http://www.vanrentalcenter.com.
