Calling all Canadians: Check your climate’s context

Back in my halcyon days, i.e. long before “global warming” aka “climate change” – aka whatever the dedicated “we must de-carbonize now” activists and advocates are calling it this week – crossed my radar, it did not even occur to me to give a second thought to or to question the message(s) being relayed by…
