There is an organization that uses the acronym HEN – Halton Environmental Network.

Earlier this week they put on a webinar that we will report on when we have finished our formatting of the visuals that were used in the webinar.

We became aware of the event when we saw this promotional piece:

It was a rainstorm that came out of nowhere. We can expect more like this.

Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot???

Did you know, that by mid-to-late century:

1. The average summer temperature is expected to reach 30 degrees C (without humidex);

2. That days over 34 degrees C (without humidex) are projected to increase 10-fold; and

3. The hottest day of the year is projected to reach 39 degrees C (without humidex)

Are you interested in how your communities climate is projected to change toward the end of this century? Join the “Warmer, Wetter, Windier & Wilder” webinar to learn about how your communities climate is projected to change throughout this century, how these changes can impact the environment, people and properties and what you can do to better prepare yourself.

While driving home, working my way through the traffic I was struck by the number of newer SUV’s and the number of vehicles with those green lettered license plates.

There were more of the big cars than there were of the electric cars – and that is a large part of the rising temperatures problem.

This is much like the pandemic we are still enveloped by – we need to get everyone vaccinated – that is what will put an end to the life of Covid19.

We need to get rid of the big gas guzzling SUV’s and convert to the electric cars to cut down the Co2 emmissions

Most people seem to know that the internal combustion engine will eventually be phased out and electric cars will be the only option and that they will prove to be very efficient.

If you’ve not been in one for a drive – try it – they are a really good car.  But right now they are expensive.

That’s the problem.
