It almost seems that we are in an El Nino right now. This January in Eastern Ontario was the third warmest in the last 80 years so in other words it was warmer than in many El Nino years. This winter has been marked by an almost total absence of extreme cold weather -- very few days where the low was in the -20C range. We haven't had any record breaking warm days, just lots of days where the temperature was above normal. February brought colder weather but the last week has been pretty warm and we'll finish the month with above average temperatures. It's been warm out your way too -- Edmonton has been having warmer temperatures on average than Ottawa this month. I'll have to mention that to my daughter in Edmonton!
This is not good

Sad some of you don't get it. The biosphere is dying. Rapidly.
Yes, things like tardigrades and thermal vent creatures will thrive under the new conditions. But the rest of the biosphere will collapse.
You will get it, inevitably. Reality is a harsh mistress.

As far as I'm concerned, I would rather they continue to go to work and pay their bills right up to the end. No need to hurry the collapse.
If there was something that could be done, I would think otherwise. But in this situation, Ignorance is Bliss. Let them go on believing as they do.
It would be cruel now to enlighten them to a hopeless situation. Let them have their dreams.
