  1. You bravely fight on, but the global warming bs machine simply swaps from hemisphere to hemisphere reporting on “hottest ever” and fires with the occasional reference to melting ice thrown in for balance. You and those like you are simply overwhelmed by bs.

  2. Im here on Vancouver Island and we’re in for blizzard conditions-half a metre possible by Thursday with 90kmh winds. Then possibly more snow. Wood stove will be paying dividends with this global warming goodness!
