Canadian cities woefully unprepared for effects of climate change:
study

A study suggests most Canadian cities have yet to assess the threat
posed by climate change despite being the most exposed to any weather
disasters it could cause.

A survey of 63 municipalities of all sizes from coast to coast found
major gaps in how most are preparing for coming conditions and in how
they are reducing their contribution to the problem.

"Cities are the most vulnerable government to climate change in Canada
but have the least resources in order to manage the problem, so it's
imperative that they have some strategy or plan," said Jason
Thistlethwaite, a University of Waterloo professor and co-author of
the paper published in the journal Climatic Change.

Full of crap study. I don't believe Gordo even believes the shit. He's posting this stuff to help build socialism..... that's the only reason...

Let's take a look at Jason Thistlethwaite's degrees shall we.. ? ? ? Here we go.....

Jason Thistlethwaite of the University of Waterloo, Ontario...

B.A.: Political Science

M.A.: Political Science

Ph.D.: Global Governance

Ph. D. in Global Governance ? ? ? ? WTF ? ? ?

That's the first time I ever heard that you could get a Ph. D. in Global Governance...

This guy must be really a piece of socialist/Marxist//internationalist work......

No wonder Gordo loves the asshole.

Take a look at the uselss degree gordo got almost 60 years ago.
That degree makes him think that he is a scientist.
Now THAT is funny

Thistlethwaite and his colleagues measured the plans against 46 indicators that include baseline information, goals, implementation, evaluation and public participation.
"Almost all plans failed to include an assessment of the
municipality's vulnerability to specific climate change impacts," the
paper says.

Only seven communities had identified specific neighbourhoods that
might be vulnerable. A dozen identified specific local industries at
risk.

Many cities hadn't done enough research to be able to write a
comprehensive plan.

Scientists are increasingly able to attribute extreme weather events
to the influence of climate change. And when floods or wildfires
destroy lives and property, it's usually in a city.

Was it "climate change" when Hurricane Hazel hit my city in southern Ontario and also Toronto back in 1954 Gordo.... killing more than 80 people here in Ontario, Canada ?

Was it "climate change" when a powerful twister/tornado hit my city in southern Ontario on Monday, Sept. 26, 1898..killing five people and injuring more than twenty people.... and destroying buildings and homes?

We haven't had another Hurricane since 1954....

.....and we haven't had another tornado since 1898.....

How come my city hasn't had any more of those things in many, many years ? ? Why have things improved for us ?

Gordo....I guess we were having more global warming and climate change back in the old days then huh ?

A lot less extreme weather in the past 60 years or so for us here in my part of Canada... wouldn't you say ? ?

What have you got to say comrade ?

Those that matter in the emmisions debate are China, US, India and maybe Russia.. The impact of others is negligible. And actually so are the US and Russia since they are not INCREASING their emmision rate.

Trump deserves highest commendation for not participating in this blantant insanity.

However, the FAILURE of the grrenie program to address the forecast DOOMSDAY is not his fault or doing.
The carbon elimination regime WILL NEVER SUCCEED OR BE RETAINED IN THE US.

Hey Gordo
Staight up math lesson

China is increasing it's emmision rate to double US every 8-10 yrs.
Lets just say 10
If China is at zero to US emission rate in yr 1,
Increases from 0 to 1 US rate in 10 yrs
This means complete elimination of US emission rate would be fully supplanted in 10 yrs. No benifit to having eliminated US

If US stayed at same emission rate for 10 yrs, and during this 10 yrs China increased its rate from 0 to 1 (US rate), at the end of 10 yrs, the combined total quantity would be 1.5 US quantity for 10 yrs.

This increase of rate from 0-1 would produce the quantity 1/2.

China increasing from 0-1 rate, would produce the quantity of 1/2 according to Newton's calculus for uniform acceleration,

1/2 rate squared
Which is rate times 1/2 rate.

So quantity is reverse, or quantity x 2, square root
1.5 quantity x 2, square rooot, square root of 3, or 1.7 quantity.

This is 1.7 decades, or 17 yrs
Complete elimination of US co2 with China's increase would produce same quantity in 17 yrs that would have been produced in 10 yrs.

No benifit whatsoever.

If China is increasing their rate to equal or double US in 10 yrs, in 10 yrs this equals US rate, in 10 yrs same quantity is administered into the environment.

Like nothing ever happened.
If you add all actual factors, this math becomes a lot worse for how little time is gained by even immediate complete elimination of US ccontribution. Slow reduction, even to zero would have virtually no effect or benifit.

You shitheads keep calling for your damn carbon program in view of these Gdamn facts is gonna piss someone off someday.

In the meantime, you are clearly incompetent, annoying and dangerous idiots.

Your assault and condemnation of 'deniers' in the West, is unfounded and you all should hang for your futile and unwarrented aggresion.

Need some response Gordo and co. Where is your mathematical hero, Post Toasties?

Since you know no math, you rely on him to understand math any more than addition and subtraction of accounting or statistics, which he is piss poor at also,

You cant refute this basic mathematical outline or the fact that China and world emmision rates are INCREASING RAPIDLY. Making all attempts at emissions reductions, by reduction of emmision RATES UTTERLY FUTILE.

So you settle for falsified and forged statistics and worthless propaganda for the basis for your AGGRESSION AND ASSAULT upon the American people.

..It can be convincingly argued that mental illness is indeed a chronic
problem among many climate alarmists and their followers. ..

What do you mean? The belief in AGW is a mental disease.

Those entirely illiterate in basic math are most prone to this neurosis which stimullates basic functions and aggresions within the mind detracting wholly from their contact with reality and their human compatibility with others.

With their overblown and non-sensical self importance at supposedly percieving a threat, and then their narcissistic claim that by beating everyone else over the head until they conform to their useless program, they can save the planet from global warming, they have themselves become the disease.

A pathogenic mutation of humans that is set on the destruction of civilization and concurring genocide.

Only in rare cases can these impinged mentalities recover from their hostile intentions and compulsions to society of their neurosis.

This disease of the 'phobia of carbon dioxide' is extremely similar to 'hydophobia' or rabies.

Well... people scared of Global Warming could be said to have Thermophobia...... a type of anxiety disorder....

People in fear of climate change itself could be said to have G.A.D. Generalized Anxiety Disorder.

Fear of change is Metathesiophobia, often linked with Tropophobia which is the fear of moving.

Global Warming/Climate Change Alarmists are truly mental health cases.... possibly suffering brain damage of some kind..

They are zombies. As much as you hit them in the head with reason or sense, or even simle direct and unquestionable math, they keep coming.

Now the zombie creed are having a meeting in Poland. Outright planning their attack on our use of energy, thus our sanctity and survival. In this they are nonchalant but successful in collecting large amounts of money for their holy war by their scaremongering fraud and propaganda, and people generally don't take thwm seriously and try their best to ignore them.

They deniers should have a big meeting. And openly plot the demise of these perpetrators of the holy war against us and our way of lfe.

What is a "Turning" test? Was that an Unum-like "word choice?"


Shouldn't the proud papa of an AI understand what a Turing test is,
how it is conducted, and who passes/fails it?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turing_test
Turing proposed that a human evaluator would judge natural language
***conversations*** between a human and a machine designed to generate
human-like ***responses***.

An unresponsive bot cannot pass a Turing test.

Ph. D. in Global Governance ? ? ? ? WTF ? ? ?
It comes after a masters degree:
https://mccormack.umb.edu/academics/crhsgg/programs/global-governance-and-human-security-ma
Focus on solutions that matter to a wide range of global problems: how
to promote human welfare and economic growth, how to develop policies
that respect human rights and ecological constraints, how to reduce
insecurity while fostering human potential, and how to fashion
cooperative solutions to challenges such as these through ***global
governance.***


It's worse than we thought, Greenie-think has morphed:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Think_globally,_act_locally
"Think globally, act locally" urges people to consider the health of
the entire planet and to take action in their own communities and
cities. Long before governments began enforcing environmental laws,
individuals were coming together to protect habitats and the organisms
that live within them. These efforts are referred to as grassroots
efforts. They occur on a local level and are primarily run by
volunteers and helpers.

"Think Globally, Act Locally" ****originally began at the grassroots
level****, however, it is ****now a global concept**** with high
importance.


So "progressives" are muscling in ... after "the little people" drank
the koolaid.
