Stu is either smiling and lol'ing at us or calling us all a bunch of expletives.

Fuck lawns I have a front moss and Clover field. And the back yard was nothing but dandelions at one point it was great

I thought your lawn was all leaves...

It's leaves on the fall and Clover and miss every other time. I just mow it every other month to maintain the appearance of conformity

Friends on Lonsdale have a farm instead of a lawn.  It takes just as much water I expect, but feeds them with zero emissions transporting farm to table.   Potatoes literally pass through the dining room window!

I came here because I was shocked to read 2020 was hotter due to reduced particulate emissions.  Seems we are fucked no matter what we do.

"For a short time, temperatures in some places in the eastern United States, Russia and China were as much as 0.3 to 0.37 degrees Celsius warmer. That's due to less soot and sulfate particles from car exhaust"

HA! So KenN and his patronizing preaching about Tesla and EV's is all wrong!

Sunday, Monday temperature forecast is apocalyptic.

Be curious to see what people's thermometers show over the next couple days.

Lawns were not the intended focus, rather how the average Joe is scolded for not being earth friendly, all the while big corporations & really state rape the natural resources enabled by politicians. Eg; Apparently fracking takes up a lot of water. Apparently Nestle pays extremely little for all the water they want to use somewhere in the Hope area of BC. That reeks of someone being paid off to look the other way.

Bordering on ludacris but luckily not Abbotsford.  With the sun down now it's a bearable 31ish. 2 hours before this my car read 39c after it settled from 42. 

Tomorrow will be interesting based on today... 

Et vous?

It's a fools game to point a finger at someone else and say they're doing a really shit job of things so why does it matter if little old me just mucks with one or too small things? Unfortunately with everyone feeling like they are ok to do a little harm, all those little harms add up to hot fucking mess of savagery. Ultimately the end responsibility is with the modern consumer.

37° today at my parent's place in West Van, tomorrow is going to be the real kicker though.

This shit is terrifying. Be safe everyone.

I'm starting to panic about climate change too
