Canada warming twice as fast as the rest of the world

Publication catches up to natural observation: Canada's accelerated warming is something that is congruent with facts of the warming in Alaska; forest fires in Canada's west; melting glaciers around Glacier National Park, USA; melting ice-skating trails in Ontario; the accepted mega-fact that the Arctic and northern areas are warming faster than lower latitudes; the rapid increase of methane from land in Siberia and Canada; the disappearance of Arctic ice, and so forth.  It can also be gleamed from prehistory: Canada is where massive glaciers like to form - and diminish.  This not only has to do with wider oscillations of temperatures in Canda, (due to changes in Pacific temps., to changes in the weakening/strengthening jet stream, etc.), but to with wider oscillations in humidity.  Thus, repetitive waves of cold and warmth, and humidity/precipitation, can lead to the formation of glaciers an ice packs.  Conversely, this same variability in warmer times can lead to rapid meltings, dryings, fires and floods.

Some think that Canada is in for good times because of global warming.  That will be partly true.  There will be more oil and natural gas to tap, yay.  There will be an increase of wheat and corn in the middle plains, and easier dairy agriculture, etc.  But there will also be an increase of flora and fauna disruption and conflicts.  There will be more wildlife entering the cities in an attempt to escape starvation.  There will be increased fires in the west and midwest.  Increased flooding, esp. around Winnipeg.  Tornadoes from the south.  There will even be sudden fires or animal die-offs due to methane releases in current tundra areas.  And  lets not discount rising urban rents due to an influx of American climate zombies.

(And mark my words: There will also be rare pockets of increased glaciations, as recently seen in Greenland, due to the humidity variations mentioned above).

These are all extrapolations of my own readings and naturalistic observations.  They are ghosts of what pretty much are going to happen.

Canada warming twice as fast as the rest of the world, report says

The federal government report warns Canada's Arctic is most affected by the changing climate.

ANOTHER POINTLESS NOTE FROM MM101: Seriously. I don't know why are are bothering to try to save the wolf and the Grizzly down here when those guys will all want to be moving north of the border pretty soon. Or should we build a wall to keep them in?
