University of Waterloo weather station 

Well there's the answer - university students taking/recording the measurements.  The thermometer probably identified as "Two-spirit".

Found on the net FWIW... " My fellow Canadians, you are buying into a lie regarding our energy industry and the global environment. We are a mere 35 million people, just 0.5% of this planet's 7.3 bill

Been saying this for decades and from the very beginning of this thread. The oceans cover nearly 80% of the surface of our pale blue dot. Their average depth is 10,000 feet. All atmospheric weather is

Gator You are talking about pollution not climate change. I'm all for reducing pollution in all it's forms but to think that is going to change the climate is a big leap. The climate will ch

BUT BUT BUTTTTT...isn’t the carbon T A X supposed to stop this ??  Has Trudeau not mandated his nation killing policies yet to Mother Nature ??  

 

The Arctic was once lush and green. New research says that could happen again.

 

- A new study suggests that the Arctic was once lush and green, and may eventually return to this state as the region continues to warm from climate change.

According to research out of the University of Colorado Boulder, the Arctic was covered with vegetation and woody shrubs as far north as the Canadian coast about 125,000 years ago.

 

With the Arctic seeing a possible temperature increase of 5 C by 2100 -- the same temperature it was in the last interglacial period

World Adds Record New Renewable Energy Capacity in 2020

Despite COVID-19 pandemic, more than 260GW of renewable energy capacity added globally in 2020, beating previous record by almost 50%

IRENA Director-General Francesco La Camera hails start of ‘decade of renewables’ 

Abu Dhabi, UAE, 5 April 2021 – Global renewable energy capacity additions in 2020 beat earlier estimates and all previous records despite the economic slowdown that resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic. According to data released today by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) the world added more than 260 gigawatts (GW) of renewable energy capacity last year, exceeding expansion in 2019 by close to 50 per cent.

IRENA’s annual Renewable Capacity Statistics 2021 shows that renewable energy’s share of all new generating capacity rose considerably for the second year in a row. More than 80 per cent of all new electricity capacity added last year was renewable, with solar and wind accounting for 91 per cent of new renewables.

Renewables’ rising share of the total is partly attributable to net decommissioning of fossil fuel power generation in Europe, North America and for the first time across Eurasia (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Russian Federation and Turkey). Total fossil fuel additions fell to 60 GW in 2020 from 64 GW the previous year highlighting a continued downward trend of fossil fuel expansion.

How much would proper well made alliances save us in terms carbon emissions, metal/ plastic waste etc.

Remember tapered roller bearings in the front wheel of your car? You repacked them once a year and they lasted forever. Now you throw out the entire hub.

Remember that Viking fridge and freezer from your childhood? Well the ones from mine still work.

My extended family here is comprised of 3 separate households. In the last 12 years we have replaced 3 fridges, 2 stoves, two freezers and 2 washing machines. Two of the fridges and one of the freezers were actually on extended warranty at the time of failure. It's more expensive to replace individual components than it is too throw it out and get a new one.

Why not do the things we can do right now that have a big impact across the board. Things like driving the speed limit (rigidly enforced by photo radar), not dumping raw sewage into rivers/oceans, setting standards for appliances. A replacement drive motor that costs more than the entire unit it goes into is the very definition of systemic waste.

In a grocery store where virtually every item is either contained or wrapped in plastic, we get excited about the shopping bags.  

It seems to me that we are more wasteful now than we were before the recycling craze descended upon swift wings and a quick visit to the mall shows tons of expensive junk that will go to landfill within 24 months. We have collectively unlearned the value of value.

Yes CNN..... no question, people are fleeing California and New York in droves because of climate change. What other reason could there possibly be?

I couldn't get past the first two paragraphs.... spontaneous human combustion (SHC) is an ever present danger, it increases exponentially with exposure to incendiary BS. 

And a cautionary note for Republicans lest they gloat about the exodus.... these folks are bringing the same failed narrative and patented craziness that didn't work on the coasts to your town.  

As people flee climate change on the coasts, this Midwest city is trying to become a safe haven
