Global warming would be a good thing for most of our cold country

It is time to end the climate change hysteria. The climate has changed all by itself for tens of thousands of years.

To the Editor,

Re: Professor talks climate change, Oct. 20.

It is time to end the climate change hysteria. The climate has changed all by itself for tens of thousands of years. Geologists and real scientists have core samples to prove it. The climate will change. So what?

Canada would only benefit from some warming. After all, it used to be covered in glaciers making it uninhabitable. It is feasible that the only reason Canada is populated at all is because it went into a warming period. Still, most of the population is clustered just north of the U.S. border because the rest of Canada is just too cold.

Climate change provocateurs use fear tactics to promote untenable changes to taxation law and to control both the resource sector and our day-to-day lives.

This presentation is to include “many critical topics.” Salient topics today in Canada are wars in the Middle East, massive migration to Europe that threatens European culture and demographics and Albertans losing their jobs and their homes.

Climate change? This is the most pressing issue for an academic? It’s no wonder academics are not taken seriously anymore.
