Most people learn from their mistakes. Not Catherine McKenna, our illustrous Minister of Climate Change. She continues to tweet and prove her critics correctly nicknamed her #ClimateBarbie.
#DYK that 2018 will be @CanadaChina year of Tourism? Canadians – why not plan a visit to #China & check off the #GreatWall of China, a #UNESCO #WorldHeritage site, on your #bucketlist! pic.twitter.com/Oz3XoRZ9SW

It seems McKenna doesn’t know China is the world’s largest carbon polluter.
It seems McKenna doesn’t know China is building 700 NEW coal-fired power plants.
It seems McKenna believes she is China’s Minister of Tourism.
It seems McKenna is unaware of China’s atrocious human rights record, or that the Great Wall was built to keep people OUT of the country, not as a tourist destination.
On average a plane will produce a little over 53 pounds of carbon dioxide per mile & from Canada to China is 5900 miles producing about 620000 lbs of CO2 round trip.
Is this your save the environment strategy, promote airplane travel yet condemn those that drive a car to work?

And she wonders why people continue to call her #ClimateBarbie.
In the middle of being a tourist on our dime, you didn’t happen to drop by one of those 2500 coal plants. Inform the Chinese how Canada could show them how to remove 95% of the emissions with the scrubber & reburn tech used in Alberta.

This is right up there with her tweeting a photograph of puffins for #WorldPenguinDay.
And she wonders why we continue to make fun of her…
