A new study came out saying that Global Warming will cost Canada billions... (awkward silence)
You're kidding right? How can a warmer Canada be a bad thing?
The study says that the increase costs "will range from effects on agriculture and forestry to rising health care costs in cities and flooding in coastal areas".
Here are a few questions I have about this report
- Wouldn't warmer weather expand Canada's now very short growing season?
- Most Canadians live in southern Canada, wouldn't it getting warmer allow people to live in more of their own country?
- Wouldn't it cause crops and trees to be grown further north into areas which are now under permafrost?
- Couldn't you grow different crops like corn and soybeans which don't do well in Canada now?
- Isn't most of Canada's coastal areas under ice most of the year?
- Wouldn't warmer weather allow Canada to build ports where they can't now like in Hudson Bay?
- If Canada becomes warmer wouldn't this create more tourism?
- I'm not sure what health concerns they're talking about but wouldn't you have less people freezing to death in the winter?
- Was this study paid for by Big Wind?
