Remember that bomb blast simulation I mentioned a few days ago? They have an interactive “how will climate change affect you?” map as well.
I was watching the CTV news while I was running on the treadmill this afternoon. They had some “scientist” from Trump’s team talking about the great myth that is climate change. And he was contradicting the hell out of himself. For example:
“Climate change is a myth that has been blown way out of proportion by the liberals. Climate change isn’t happening.”
Then, in the next sentence, “It’s important that the US not limit its coal and oil production, as the extra monetary protection will be beneficial once the climate changes.”
Like, seriously. That’s almost word-for-word.
I’m pretty sure we’ve screwed up the planet past the point of being able to fix it.
I mean, I’ve thought that for a while now, but the way the weather’s been acting this year (not just in Calgary but everywhere) and for the past, say, five years as well really suggests to me that we’ve gone past the tipping point.
Which is quite scary.
I didn’t think the major consequences of our destroying the planet were going to hit us in our lifetimes (the lifetimes of our children, yes, but not ours), but given what’s been going on, I’m going to say that they’ll be happening within the next 15 years or so, max.
