Many are. Take Summerland for example. Using our tax dollars primarily to install a solar array project. For what end? BC's hydro supply is cheaper and available 24/7 365 days a year regardless of the weather.
Those that believe we have to hurry up and purchase a taxpayer subsidized electric car or the world will end are another lot that seems to have blinders on as to where a quicker source of CO2 emission reduction can come from. The Stop Fortis gas pipeline expansion behind Penticton and Naramata group so we can purchase an expensive subsidized heat pump, that may well need back up heat.

Likely similar to environmental groups that want to stop logging, when a bunch of noise is made and protests occur, the donations flood in enriching the "managers" of these so called environmental groups.

Yeup, learned all about the affinity of CO2 to absorb heat back in grade 10- 1973.

I believe heat sinks might have been later that year.

Yeup, that was back in elementary school in the 60's. Some might argue women are from Venus, but there is also an argument that some come from some other gawd damn place...

Not sure what your point is but I hope I have answered your questions to your satisfaction..

How ironic. Well, we are talking about MSM, right. Apparently, this is a fairly well educated fellow considering we are talking about MSM. MSM up until now has been all in the climate emergency deception... except this fellow stood out on a limb and gave a truly different POV. People are realizing that warm is better than cold for animal survival.

It's always fun that people claim legitimacy based on the source even when something is an op-ed or essay ... nothing like reporting opinions from right-wingers that sound good ... versus reasoned reporting based on data from studies that can be verified ... part of the whole problem with believing that A/C will save us is the fact that while it's cooling our domiciles it's dumping that heat into the atmosphere ... we're paying to use energy to transfer energy from inside to outside, perpetual machines do not exist, there is a price in there we're ignoring

Weather people now instructed to push the man-made climate change fraud propaganda - the people just aren't scared enough. Stop being so upbeat when doing the weather, don't you all understand?? There's an evil sky genie flying around up there just waiting to wipe us all out!! Such foolishness. Such stupidity. So pathetic.

I didn't see anything in that article to conclude they've been instructed to do something differently ... did we read the same article?

This is what I'm talking about. How dumb are people? It's like no one ever died from naturally occurring events in the entire history of mankind until the 2000's. No, some magical sky genie wasn't responsible for this flood. And believing in such foolishness is just so freaking dumb.

It is called weather. Weather is chaotic and unpredictable. Natural disasters usually kill people. It's amazing only 1 person perished. Nothing unusual about it.

The hoax happens when YOU believe it is due to climate change, rather than weather and factors that cause water to backup or pool.
