I’m not sure how the math works here.
Dutifully reported by the CBC, according to a Canadian report on climate ( Canada’s Changing Climate Report (CCCR)), “Canada is, on average, experiencing warming at twice the rate of the rest of the world, with Northern Canada heating up at almost three times the global average, according to a new government report. ”
Hmm. Okay. But how does that explain this. Botalia Morpheus: “After going through many headlines today, I’ve learned that that the entire planet is warming at twice the rate as the rest of the planet.”
If you haven’t taken a look at the link, Natalia Mateo put together a twitter thread that lists countries, regions and geography (e.g. mountains) that are reported to be experiencing rising temperatures at higher than average rates. Twice the average rate is pretty common: Sweden, Russia, the arctic, Norway, South Africa, Tibet, all of Africa, mountains in general, China, Alaska, Japan, Korea, Iceland, Britain, Adirondacks, Spain, Australia, Finland, the Himalayas, and Singapore.
Now, clearly, that’s not the whole world, but it certainly suggests a big chunk of the surface of the earth. So … who is bringing down the average? According to this “science” the rest of the earth is warming at below the average rate, to establish the average. Or perhaps even cooling. After all, we are talking about averages and it has to balance out on the other side.
Taking this information at face value (which would be folly), if all these regions are increasing at a rate greater than everyone else, shouldn’t the reporting actually be that Canada et al are increasing at the average rate. But, of course, that won’t suit the climate alarmist narrative. And I am certain the data is not there to support such a contention.
More cooking the data it looks like. Perhaps that is why temperatures are rising.
Update 280220: And this just in … “Alberta will warm faster than the rest of the planet because of human activity, causing a range of profound impacts on the province’s economy, infrastructure and public health, says a new report, prepared by climate scientists and published on a provincial government website.”
No, not as reported on the Babylon Bee. How is this even possible? Micro-climate alarmism? So Alberta is going to warm faster than its neighbors British Columbia and Saskatchewan? Surely, even climate alarmists must agree this is absurd.
