Survival Trumps Comfort

Survival trumps comfort. And survival of my entire planet trumps everything. Until we get greenhouse gas emissions under control, everything else, including jobs, has to be secondary. Environment Canada says the effects of global warming are second only to thermonuclear war in destructiveness. Yet the term global warming sounds so benign. Even if Harper keeps his word, we are on track for a 5.0°C (9.0°F) rise by the end of the century. I am a glad I will be dead by then. Selling tar sands oil to China cheaply is really no different from burning it ourselves. It all goes into the same atmosphere.
