Feckin peachy deal, mental loss.

Chance to see the family . . . Get to see what global cooling is all about as Ottawa and Paris will experience the same general change in the weather. Snow and wind and more snow.

Swedes.

They're so hot.

However, Sweden has come out swinging, promising that they will be off fossil fuels entirely by 2050.

That's awesome.

But only a complete moron can not understand the difference between Sweden and Canada.

Better yet, why don't you tell us who Sweden's claims play out on a Canadian scale.

I shouldn't have to. You should understand that there's nothing at all humans can do to affect "natural" climate change. So the entire program from it's beginning has been to change "human" climate. There will be change.

This conference is nothing but an all expense paid vacation for politicians!
Climate change, to whatever degree it exists, is not going to be halted or reversed by a bunch of politicians who probably don't know what they are talking about. They are just p***ing against the wind!
How long have they been having these 'conferences'? Has any country actually achieved their goal in reducing emissions?
It seems like a 'feel good' thing the politicians do to make the public think they are actually concerned about it and in control of the situation.
I don't believe we are all that stupid!
To quote a wise man, "You can fool all of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time but you can't fool all of the people all of the time".

Another vacation to la la land - so what else is new? Unfortunately, WE will have to shell out more $$! I'm wondering if I will ever be able to retire or my child or grandchildren. At the rate we're going, our taxes will take all of our income and we'll all be back in the "mid eighteenth century". That's likely what the Suzuki's et al are all about - they'll live in comfort while the rest of us peons can starve!

Yes the science is sound on this and we are the primary agent of warming.

He's such an idiot! But he's only one of the many so called environmentalists who haven't a clue what they're talking about!
Did you know that the XL pipeline was going to be 857 miles long but that since 2010, in the U.S, they've built 12,000 miles of pipeline?


So the hypocrisy is astounding.


Unbelievable!

When you explain what is happening here in full detail, we'll talk science and climate. Until then you are a just a f-cking ignorant wh0re being pimped by political thugs. A nobody.

What is happening here and how does it relate to earth?



Well?

Actually the science is not sound and there is still no proof that we are the primary agent of warming! I get that you want to go with the "crowd" but there are still those of us who actually believe that the science is politicized and not actual "science". The Al Gore's of the world simply see this as money in their pockets (he's a billionaire now when he wasn't even a millionaire before). How did that happen? Someone is ensuring that this propaganda is moving forward whether we like it or not.


I am NOT convinced that we are (overly) causing climate change or global warming and I do not want to pay a penny more for someone else to pocket and not have ANYTHING change as in the last 20+ years. I'm tired of OTHER people getting rich off of my hard work.


I might change my perspective if there had been any improvement over the last few years but all I see is rich people getting richer and us poor suckers doling it out! As far as I see it, its a scam and you've fallen for it BIG TIME!

Can we assume the ones in the field that originally gathered the data did it right and it was the ones at the top that sorted that into a predetermined theory are the ones the cherry picked what data was used and what was excluded?

Canada's climate holds the most interest to me at the moment and the factors point to the wind changing to blow from the south more than the west. BC should get California type weather and southern Alaska would get the weather BC is used to getting. The Rockies will see a bit of wind cross them but for the most part all the moisture will go north and be dry air by the time it reaches a northern Alaska and the -40C temps before it swings to the south and chills the warm wet air from the Gulf Stream. The winds will be quite dry by the time they get as far north as they go and then they head south and go over the UK before causing rain in Libya and Egypt, etc.
Might as play around with a model like that and see what changes would take place because of that. Example, the Mississippi flows a lot more water than it does now, enough that it flows in a straight line to the GOM. Water wheels would seem to be the way to go as far as gathering electricity over the long term. If the river basin gets more water then the drier parts of the south-west would be greener and support 2 crops per year.

Personally my favorite change would be sending all the ones 55 and older down to Mexico and let the young Mexican adults up into the places where the jobs are.

That was my best guess without looking for the answer.
