Climate change predicted to transform Vancouver into San Diego, but at a heavy cost

Goodbye Vancouver, hello San Diego.
A major climate-change study predicts temperatures in Metro Vancouver will exceed those of present-day Southern California in the coming decades.

Frost and ice will become virtually a thing of the past, heating bills will drop, and farm crops will flourish virtually year-round in the Fraser Valley.

That’s the good news.

On the down side — and there is plenty of it — the region can expect: air-conditioning costs to soar; worsening smog and associated health problems; increased forest fires and water shortages; summer droughts followed by severe fall rain events; and an influx of invasive species threatening forests and agriculture.

The heaviest cost will be building that honkin' huge Navy base.

Leo took time out from flying his private Lear jet around the world to lecture us on the evils of flying around the world . Maybe he can fly up to Vancouver and help Petros yell at Trump tower tomorrow .

And moving Mexico up to our border. Maybe it will move itself.

At least you won't have to worry about relocating the Chargers. They're f-ing off to LA.

It's no coincidence that the army built POW camps in places like the South Thompson.

They are measuring the snowfall in California ski resorts in feet this season there is so much snow . Squaw Valley is completely buried . More snow on the way . I think the snow pack is over 200 % of average .

Does more snow fall translate as "colder"? It doesn't, you know.

Well it sure is rare the amount of snow we saw this winter , and as it usually rains here , yes I think cold has something to do with it .

It's a 'stupid person' argument.

Ever lived here in winter? People have stopped boasting and are rapidly losing faith in climate change and are begging for rain over beautiful cold, clear, sunny skies.

Guess what?


It's snowing in Coquitlam again right now.

But it can't be colder because the world is warming . Who are you going to believe your lying eyes or Mentalfloss ?

The additional snow in Vancouver is no doubt a side effect of the ice free north pole in effect since 2013.

Yes it is just a weather event . But when we have our regular August heat wave that will be definite proof of global warming .

Lenny De Crappio: Thinks chinooks are proof of global warming.
Lenny De Crappio: Apparently thinks his private jet runs on renewable, green energy.
Lenny De Crappio: Rented one of the world's largest gas-guzzling yachts for the World Cup in Brazil.
Lenny De Crappio: Keeps increasing his carbon footprint buy having new houses built for himself.
Lenny De Crappio: One seriously hypocritical douche bag.

I just love the way idiots like Flossie worship these false prophets of the environment.

I'm digging myself out of a rare beginning of March snowstorm in the Fraser Valley. It's been a cold and snowy winter, and they seem to be getting more severe since i arrived here a decade ago.

When will people realize that the AGW fraud has absolutely NOTHING to do with Climate. It's a political and philosophical agenda without an iota of scientific merit.

It is completely immune to fact, evidence. It has become something that must be accepted on Faith Alone. Radical Environmentalism has become a despotic religion whose arch enemy is the human pestilence.
