in the future it will be California

Summary of the last 5 years of climate research in Canada = bad, bad news. Water shortages in summer = a) higher risk of contaminants, b) reduced hydroelectric output; meanwhile higher temperatures = increased AC use = increased power consumption. Reduced output + increased consumption = brownouts. Throw imminent hydro privatization into the mix and hmmm… California party in Ontario, Enron-style! (here‘s the actual Environment Canada document)

    I always wanted to visit California and the West Coast but I now I don’t have to – scary shit none the less.

  2. D says:

    Yeah, and if this shit keeps up there won’t be much left of Cali anyway, unless they turn LA into a giant underwater theme park – which might not be such a bad idea, really…

  3. And the worst is yet to come!
