The weather may belie their message but devoted fans of the outdoor hockey rink plan to brave Alberta’s arctic-like weather as part of a statement against global warming …
Michael Kalmanovitch, organizer of the event in Edmonton, says the skate will go ahead in Edmonton despite the -23 C temperature. He admits the cold snap is a touch ironic but stressed the above average temperatures that have dominated the winter thus far.
An apocalyptic vision of life 1,000 years from now has been painted by a team of scientists studying the effect of global warming.
If mankind does not put its house in order, temperatures could have risen by 15C (27F) by the year 3000 and sea levels by more than 11 metres (36ft), flooding much of London, the team, from the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, says in a report for the Environment Agency. Abrupt changes could make Britain much hotter, or even — such is the uncertainty of the predictions — first colder and then hotter.
How might we avoid this warming/colding/warming apocalypse?
The solution, the team says, is to reduce emissions to zero by 2200.
And if we don’t?
The risk was that of returning the Earth to a hot state it had not been in since 55 million years ago.
Hmm. Sounds like these God-playing climate folks want to delay the earth returning to its natural state. I’ll have none of this meddling.
