That is quite an accomplishment, even for the Times Colonist, which continues to invest in this completely discredited theory of anthropogenic so-called ‘climate change’ (previously called ‘global warming’ and before that ‘global cooling’ in the early 70s).
‘The amount of tree cover loss and the rate at which it happens in developing regions is cause for alarm’, rants the executive director of the Habitat Acquisition Trust, a special pleading group which produced a questionable study with the Capital Regional District, and the Real Estate Foundation of B.C., apparently using drones.
This gent seemingly contradicts himself when he says that ‘the cause wasn’t anything specific,’ but in the next sentence he blames ‘urbanization,’ according to the front page TC article by Sarah Petrescu.
“The cause wasn’t anything specific — which was interesting and a bit shocking,” Taylor said.
The disappearance of trees in Saanich appears to be the result of urbanization and a multitude of small, changing land-use projects, rather than major building developments.
Below that we have the assistant professor at UVic’s School of Earth and Sciences suggesting ‘Earth, as a habitable planet, is probably going to die sooner than we previously thought.’
Judith Lavoie reports that this man has a solution: ‘Move the Earth away from the sun.
‘”This is physically possible,” said the prof ‘who worked for NASA.’
Finally, to cap the alarmist lunacy, we read about self-important cyclists who imagine that they could save lives in a disaster. How?
‘Forty cyclists, each loaded down with heavy bottles of water and two fragile eggs, rode around Victoria Saturday in an exercise that aimed to show the value of two-wheeled transportation in the event of a disaster,’ reports Sandra McCulloch.
Not a mention of the very obvious stratospheric solar management or ‘chemtrail’ geo-engineering that is ongoing over the Capital Regional District, diminishing sunlight by 22%, killing plants and trees, and adversely affecting our fragile human health.
