Few children of the 70’s can forget Lex Luthor’s brilliant plot to enrich himself, given in Superman. Here is a description from Wikipedia.
Luthor plots to divert a nuclear missile into hitting the San Andreas fault, causing California to sink into the ocean, thereby turning its neighboring states into prime beach front property.
The insane genius of this plot involving real estate speculation is coming to life. Canadians can make a bundle selling tar sands to the U.S. and China, and then make an even bigger bundle by turning the maple-country into the most valuable piece of real estate on earth. This is the same as Luthor planning to get rich buying wasteland that would suddenly be turned to beach front property in a nuclear explosion. As the tar sands accelerate global warming causing the ocean’s waves to sweep over Florida and crash against the 3rd floor of Manhattan’s skyscrapers, Albertans will be growing lemons and avocados in their backyards. As the U.S. becomes a malarial swamp or a scorching desert, Canada will only be rivaled by Siberia for its prime real estate. But is it a plot?
Here are some links (here and here ) that hint at the plot. Check this image out (and it can be seen in the link to the Calgary Herald article), and ask yourself if Canadian’s aren’t channeling Lex Luthor.
Quoting from the Oilprice.com link:
The ruling Conservative government knows how important the energy sector is and has firmly backed oil sands expansion as a driver of economic growth, despite critics who say that Canada has contributed to, rather than slowed, the escalation of global warming, underscored by Canada’s rejection of the Kyoto Protocol in 2011.
The Prime Minister of Canada is starting to look a lot like this:
If you want to do something for your grandchildren, buy them land in Northern Alberta.
