Makers vs. Takers: Academics tell Trudeau not to “bailout” oil & gas industry (that makes their jobs possible)

On March 25, 2020, a group of 265 academics from across Canada signed a letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau expressing concern that, according to a Globe and Mail report, the federal government was considering a $15 billion “bailout package” for oil and gas companies.

It's true. Just as economies were shutting down, governments were forcing people to stay home to stop the spread of the coronavirus, and entire nations were being hammered by the disease, the "green" movement saw their chance to finally stick a stake in the heart the goose they refuse to acknowledge lays their golden eggs.

Anti-oil academics are biting the hand that feeds them.

The oil and gas sector supports academia. The "makers" almost always are the ones supporting the professional "takers," even if the professional thinkers don’t like to be reminded of that inconvenient truth.

Joining me tonight to discuss their rebuttal letter to those 265 anti-oil academics, and so much more, is Michelle Stirling from Friends of Science.
