"... caused by global warming? Maybe not but we can say we should expect more of the same - and worse if we don't do something to get our emissions under control."Thanks to the likes of Suzuki, "climate change" has become the go-to excuse for all bad weather and related damage (it would never be mentioned in connection with a bumper crop). Last night, for example, CTV's National news story on the Alberta floods had an 'expert' opinion from hydrologist, John Pomeroy, who predictably pointed his finger explicitly in that direction.
The worst of it is that "climate change" has been so thoroughly drilled into the public consciousness by an uncritical media and academia that it's accepted "wisdom" at all levels of government where you would be hard pressed to find a single plan or program that doesn't address it as a key issue. Any citizen who tries to object or criticize is met by 'officialdom' with anything from a blank stare to the derision due a "denier".
Getting rid of this mass psychosis is going to be a long uphill grind.
