Hwy 1, the Trans-Canada is ruined in Canmore
and houses ruined - the fence had good construction though!
Meanwhile Alaska is burning up!
The United States and Canada has no reason to not take climate change seriously except that policy makers think that wealth cannot be maintained or grown more if the governments act.
Has the public have already forgotten about the tornadoes in the US Midwest and the fires in Colorado earlier in the month (isn't there fires in California burning now?). Are people too busy fighting over insurance claims than to write and lobby their public government officials to act? Claims are going to be harder to recieve when insurance companies limit their losses due to climate change exclusion clauses. Are people even willing to make the connections because then it will force us to change how we operate day to day in our lives?
I really don't understand how the United States doesn't take it seriously because as the wealthiest county in the world, it's got the most ability, (biggest military, the most money, big intellect). I wonder if these times are kinda like when people were watching the United States do nothing while watching the Nazi's take over Europe. Will someone tell me if I'm missing something?
No Keystone, No Northern Gateway, No Kinder Morgan. (Pipelines).
Because getting evacuated from homes IS NOT the best interest of most homeowners I think. Not in lesser developed countries or developed countries. People who support development of the tar sands may believe it's a good thing for economic security, but I bet some of those same people own some of the fancy houses that are now in the rivers.
