  1. Canada is going to be the “canary in the coal mine” for global cooling… no doubt about it. At least for the first 2-4 years. Most Americans have this view Canada is always cold—not so. It’s a food superpower, or was until the cold & wet got going in earnest.

  2. so it would appear that the warm air over arctic has gone?
    this should see more ice developing then?
