As we move toward Rio+20 in 2012 expect more “climate trash” like the story below. I use story to describe… because that’s what it is. It isn’t news and it’s not science…..even though it’s presented as such by the CBC.
Those areas are in “hot spots” highly vulnerable to massive environmental changes this century due to global warming, the study states.

Much of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba is predicted to see major shifts northward of plant and animal species.
“By about 2100, the climate change projections that we have today would suggest that there would be pressure on that grassland so prevalent in [the Canadian Prairies] to move further northward — and at the expense of the forest moving further northward as well,” said NASA climate scientist Duane Walliser, who spoke with CBC News from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.
Walliser said that all across the globe, whole ecological zones such as deserts and tundra will be on the move because of “unprecedented” warming at a pace faster than at any time in 10,000 years.
But Western Canada will be among the areas hardest hit.
Now for a little truth –
“No matter if the science of global warming is all phony… climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.”

fmr Canadian Minister of the Environment
“…we need to get some broad based support, to capture the public’s imagination…. So we have to offer up scary scenarios,
make simplified, dramatic statements and make little mention of any doubts…. Each of us has to decide what the right balance
is between being effective and being honest.“
– Stephen Schneider,
Stanford Professor of Climatology
lead Author of many IPCC reports
This is not science….it’s politics.
MMGW is not real! It’s used as “the bogey man” to get us to give up our sovereignty and submit to a “world government”
Sustainable Development is Agenda 21 – What’s not sustainable according to the “wise men” – Private Property.
