I've got 9 feet of snow outside my window right now and it's not forecast to stop until Jan 5th.

I'm beginning to doubt.

Just because the Earth's climate is getting warmer by almost 2 degrees Celsius on average does not mean that there won't be any snow.

Yes it does!  MAGA!

Climate change is resulting in increased precipitation in some areas. 

Google “what is the difference between weather and climate” to understand why your area will experience chimate change differently than, say, southern India.

" Over recent decades, the rate of ocean warming off Tasmania, Australia’s southernmost state and a gateway to the South Pole, has climbed to nearly four times the global average, oceanographers say.

More than 95 percent of the giant kelp — a living high-rise of 30-foot stalks that served as a habitat for some of the rarest marine creatures in the world — died. "

Watch the original movie.  Does a great job of showing how climate change will affect our part of the world.

You have no idea what you are doubting.

I'll give you a hint, science as reported by "news" is what you should be doubting.

Anyways, I'm really good with money, let me be your financial manager.  Wait, why do you care now if I know what I'm doing?

For those that missed it, three-sheets post was layered in sarcasm. I didn't want to say anything earlier as I figured I'd let him enjoy this little subversive victory for a bit.

Well it's a win-win then because a lot of people think that way, and it's why we shouldn't let home schooled east coat paint eaters like Jason Kenney take money away from education to fund propaganda ministries.

"The reality is that Canada has a far greater opportunity to help reduce the world’s carbon footprint by expanding the reach of its oil and gas industry than it does by keeping its vast resources in the ground."

Jesus.  That is some first-rate doublethink.

Below a link to an article in Nature on global weather and climate change, etc. The abstract says it all.
