"Calling the Prince of Darkness, Calling Beelzebub": 
The Insurance Bureau of Canada has an unwelcome message for Steve Harper - global warming is real and it's going to cost Canada big time.

Telling the Weather Story, a report released this week by the Bureau, predicts climate change will drive a 50% or greater increase in wild fires in British Columbia by 2050.
The full report can be found here.

Previously there have been reports of interference with brush clearing around homes and cottages under the rubric of carbon dioxide sequestration in both the US - especially Texas - and Australia, resulting in escalating losses of homes. Does the insurance industry know about upcoming changes to Canadian regulation ? )

LOL You think about as much of Harper as I do. When it comes to science, though, I've tracked years of representations that the norm of back and forth contention does not apply to catastrophe. It can be difficult to summon the energy to challenge Authority when outside one's area of understanding. Or is it ? http://mclean.ch/climate/IPCC.htm That's the latest of many finds. You will find I've been 'on' this for a while. http://opitslinkfest.blogspot.com/2012/06/8-june-chasing-weather-whirlwind.html http://opitslinkfest.blogspot.com/p/environmental-challenges.html

Opit, I have read your stuff and I couldn't disagree more. This isn't a conspiracy, it isn't a hoax. The central theory of global warming is steadily corroborated by multi-disciplinary research in fields ranging from climatology, atmospherics, meteorology, geology, hydrology, botany and biology, medicine and epidemiology, chemistry, the list goes on and on. You might as well reject all these basic disciplines, all their research and, in some cases, generations of knowledge if you intend to reject the central thesis they all support. You can reject the consensus if you like but you're rejecting very powerful, well-researched and tested reality.

If you understand I come from the angle of energy geopolitics underpinning resource wars with the power of nations equal to squandering of trillions of dollars and millions of lives in the chase for dominance in a scenario spanning centuries...'reality' is manufactured. http://opitslinkfest.blogspot.com/2009/07/perception-alteration.html Try this. The foremost practitioners of economic warfare http://opitslinkfest.blogspot.com/2011/12/19-december-sanctions.html denied oil to Japan and Germany. The later change to denying nuclear power is a short hop of infrastructure destruction detailed in the NPT TRAP. Scientific literature verifying the awesome power of soothsaying is a slight perversion in such a scenario aligned to the imperial aspirations of the powerful. Yet that is what modeling is - and G.I.G.O. to boot. http://fabiusmaximus.wordpress.com/2010/06/27/18115/ Is there something about Politically Correct Science that is difficult to understand when promoted by Hollywood and its equivalents ?
