Departments: Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment

WHEREAS CO2 is the building block of life and fuels. Photosynthesis CO2 is not a pollutant and to call it a pollutant is disingenuous.

WHEREAS any policies that are designed to punish the critical natural CO2 cycle are not only illogical but dangerous to the balance of natural food production.

WHEREAS Saskatchewan’s forests, grasslands and crop production zones rely on this critical CO2 but also sequesters more CO2 than any illogically created CO2 Reduction Strategy.

WHEREAS policies that vilify CO2 are illogical and unpredictable and will undoubtedly create an uncertain amount of negative impact to our existing crop production systems and economy.

BE IT RESOLVED that SARM will ensure that any policies that unduly target naturally occurring CO2 will be deemed as illogical and dangerous. We move that Saskatchewan remove itself from any national or international agreements that reference net zero.
