Bill: But if we taxed some of those resources, what would happen?

Timothy: Less people would be able to mass up (consumption).

Bill: Yes.   We would discourage the consumption, because normally, the more you tax something"

Timothy: the less it's used.

Bill: Yes.   Then people would be trying to find other resources, or use less.

Timothy: That is a good idea.   That is a way where we could (live better). It's fairly obvious that in the end when there's no more left which might be very soon, like the next hundred years, or even less, that there will be another war, because there might be a little oil somewhere.

Scott: It's already happening.

Timothy: At the end where there's no more anywhere else, America might attack Canada for"trees.

Scott: Well, Canada is attacking itself.   They're drilling everywhere.   They've got the shale oil.   They're cutting down whole forests because of that, so even though it's a low population country, they're denuding huge amounts of the country.

Bill: Yes, parts of Canada are opposed to other parts.   The parts of Canada that are in the West, particularly like the province of Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, all those parts have resources that are being exploited and other parts of this country of Canada are opposed to that, like Ontario, Quebec and the provinces in the east.   So Canada is having a difficult time.   So right now, the conservatives"they're the ones that are in power now; they are prevailing .  

Timothy: I thought the conservatives wanted stuff to be always the same.

Bill: Well, different countries have different notions of what the word "conservative" means.   For example, in North America, the word "conservative" has a different meaning.   Conservative in the U.S. and Canada usually means very little government control and lot of free market liberty for corporations.   It's not the same as in France (where Timothy spent most of his young life).

Timothy: I'm not so sure. In France conservatives are radicals who want to go away from the EU, get all the foreigners out.

Bill: That's part of it.

Timothy: I'm not sure, but I don't really like them.

Scott: It's a misnomer, because they don't "conserve" the environment.
