Record breaking snow falls. Streets undrivable.
Winter hit Toronto hard for a while. And I’m pretty sure it’s not over. Hail storms, freezing rain, and incredible winds. This is the new norm. I realized while driving recently that it’s not going to get any easier. Climate change is going to hit us hard. Many are still stuck on the idea that -31 means there’s no global warming. It’s an uneducated narrow understanding. The warming causes intense temperature patterns. The freak stuff becomes common place. So the freaky snowstorms, the freaky hailstorms, the freaky windstorms become regular occurrences rather than one off events. Sorry, if you already know this.
But I realized that this storm was from now on going to be a regular thing. I realized that my daughter’s winters will be harsher and more unpredictable. I realized that we’ve really screwed it up for our kids.
And what kills me is that we could’ve and we can do something about it, but we’re unwilling to. It’s like being told you’re going to have a heart attack at 50 but refusing to stop eating fast food.
Sorry to be a downer, but that’s reality and while I’m doing what I can, I’m only one snowflake in the snowstorm of pollution.
