A question I have been asked by many voters is, “What is your position on climate change?”
In answer to that question, I agree with the arguments raised by Dr. Bjorn Lomborg in his 2021 book, False Alarm: How The Climate Change Panic Costs Us Trillions, Hurts The Poor And Fails To Fix The Planet. in which he argues that climate change is happening but current policies for dealing with it are economically unviable and unsustainable.
I recognize that this view is not shared by a local political action organization called One Cowichan, which is very active on climate issues and has been very successful in getting its candidates elected to City of Duncan Council, Municipality of North Cowichan Council and as CVRD Directors. Candidates supported by One Cowichan included Duncan Mayor Michelle Staples and Duncan Council members Stacy Middlemiss and Jenni Capps.
Here are some videos showing Dr. Bjorn Lomborg discussing his views:
