We all know that mankind impacts the environment. Anyone who lives in Southwestern Saskatchewan knows that settlement of this area drastically changed this system – from short grass prairie to impressive agricultural food production, which has fed the world.
Scientists use computers to create future environmental scenarios. That computer modeling is sometimes accurate, sometimes not. Results depend on the data entered and that includes any number of highly-fluid components. Results can be easily manipulated if there is a goal that is desired. Trudeau’s Liberals are using these models to set their carbon tax policy.
Unfortunately for them, the real facts do not always fit the conclusions of these models. Polar bears have been adopted as a symbol of climate change but a report from Nunavut last week contradicted all that we have been told about them. Polar bears are not threatened by the present climate in the North. They are thriving to the point that they need to be managed as they are becoming a threat to the people in the area.
If something this basic is not true, on what else have we been misled?
