Something Must Be Done: We are Warming Twice as Fast as the Rest of the Planet

Who are we? Canada? Canada warming at twice the global rate, climate reports finds. No, it must be Australia: Australia temperatures rising faster than rest of the world.

Or maybe it’s the northeast coast of the United States: Northeast U.S. coast warming faster than rest of continent. Or maybe it’s Russia, China or Norway. The list goes on. Just plug a country into the search engine and add something like ‘warming faster than’.

According to the headlines across the planet, everything from the mountains to the Arctic, from Canada to Australia is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet. If this confuses you, you’re not alone.

However, please, remember these headlines when the next shock and awe headline hits, and don’t take it at face value. In fact, I’d ignore it. That includes information that is ‘leaked’ as if it’s something they don’t want us to know: Canada warming at twice the global rate, leaked report finds (CBC). This really gets the attention of those who might not be interested because we all love a “leaked report”.

But don’t believe me. Do your own research. I’m just someone enjoying a mild fall, hoping snow will hold off until late December or early January, and there won’t be so much that it will cover the posts in the pasture like it did that March from Hell a few years ago when I almost collapsed from exhaustion trying to keep shovelled access tunnels to the animals.
