gassed on about (a) saving the planet from global warming and (b) making sure Canadians don’t "waste" water, even though:
Perhaps they haven't read the memo, the climate climate has gotten colder. Nor, I'd wager, have they kept up on recent research which, in part, concludes:
(a) Canada’s contribution to global GHG emissions is negligible (assuming "GHGs" are a problem to begin with), and;
(b) Canada has the world’s largest supply of fresh water which might explain why we’re big users of the stuff. Apparently we have to wear a hair shirt because desert dwellers need to get by with less.
Climate scientists have greatly underestimated the uncertainty of proxy based reconstructions and hence have been overconfident in their models. Which means, one commenter says: "ie. they've done it wrong, and then oversold it."[via FOS]
