that looks crazy.

i remember a day when i was 3 or 4 years old and there was a massive forest fire in quebec or new brunswick whose smoke blew directly over and into halifax. i was at preschool as the sky changed from a normal bright clear blue to a hellish deep smoky orange by the time the day ended. all of us kids were absolutely terrified and didn't understand what was happening, and since it was pre-internet and there was no TV or radio in the daycare building the teachers couldn't explain it either. the memory of that day and what the sky looked like is burned (no pun intended) into my brain forever.

Vancouver BC is now getting the smoke! Not quite as bad as 2018 but still pretty gross out there. Good orange sun in the middle of the day! So I’m not doing any excercise today and staying indoors.

About 70 miles south of the border, it’s much, much worse than 2018.

Oh that sucks!! yeah for us here in Vancouver 2018 was really really bad (orange sun in the middle of the day and could hardly see a few blocks, looked like being on mars!). But today is definitely worse than yesterday grr. I hope you can stay indoors and not have to breath in this foul air. Stay safe my friend!

I really thought it was fake. I’m still not convinced it isn’t….but either way let’s continue to invest in fossil fuel!!

So here in bc last week, we suffered the worst heat wave we’ve ever had. Lytton BC almost hit 50 degrees Celsius. I was in Lytton the other day, 2 days later, the town has been wiped out of the map due to a very fast moving wild fire that burnt the town in just 15 minutes. Lytton also broke the record for the hottest temperature ever recorded in Canadian history. It did that 3 days in a row. BC now has over 180 active and uncontrolled Forrest fires and it’s barely July! 2017 and 2018 were considered to be the worst forest fire seasons in our history, 2017 season started around July 7. This season started in mid June and it’s looking like it will make the 2017 season look like nothing. Yeah there is nothing to see here, nope no climate change at all. BTW it truly sucks, myself like most in BC have no AC, hundreds died last week from heat. It was oppressive even with all the fans in my condo!

Looks like you crashed your car and it ended up on its side.

I truly wish it was 47 degrees F! 47 C = 117 F and many people
Actually died because of this heat wave. So yes 47 F would have been absolutely wonderful!

Absolutely no existence of climate change when those conditions exist in Canada

Indeed! Nothing to see here! This month Vancouver has seen one tornado (in November and in the west coast which NEVER happens!), 3 cyclone bombs and just yesterday we got 250 mm of rain so that’s almost 10 inches in one day! Not to mention the windstorm that followed! It’s chaos right now and many people stuck and lots of evacuation orders in my town alone as well as other towns underwater like in Merrit. Add to that, the heat wave that killed over 600 people in June and the crazy forest fires that wiped the town of Lytton off the map! Yep totally normal, nothing to see at all. I just can’t wait to see what next week brings!!!
