    If a nuclear bomb were dropped on Toronto my house would be outside the blast radius, Hamilton not so much, yes that’s the kind of person I am, I take big problems and reduce them down to me, not that I’m a narcissist or anything it just gives me a sense of realism away from the complications of any expert advice and in that vane I would like to present to you ‘climate catastrophe’ as it affects me.
    Burlington is 200 feet above sea level not only that but my house is 20’ above Lake Ontario and also not on a flood plain it has managed to survive for 120 years without any problems It is also within the Great Lakes Basin area which is home to the five Great Lakes with 5,500 cubic miles of water the largest freshwater system on earth, even without any replenishing rain it would take 300 years to drain.
    Also, the ‘Great Lakes-St Lawrence River Basin Sustainable Water Resources Agreement’ between Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Ontario, Pennsylvania, Quebec and Wisconsin protects the sustainability of the basin in regards to human life, note: All of these States mentioned have a ‘National Gaurd’ and I’m figuring it would need it, as coastal populations start relocating to the basin area to survive, my thinking here is that the Americans will take control of the basin area and I will be sworn in as a citizen of this new ‘Basin State’ I think I’ve got it covered but please feel free to add anything I’ve overlooked.

    On Wednesday the temperature dropped by over 20 degrees in the space of a few hours. On Thursday we experienced gale force winds. These days there are many cases of extreme weather events all over the world, and that, too, is climate change.

    The worlds climate has changed since time immemorial. Trying to create a link between man made climate effect and those two pictures is absurd. Weather on an hourly basis let alone a daily base changes. One picture is absent of snow the other taken at what appears to be a different time of day. Its Canada and it snows sometime, other times not so much.
