Alberta's on fire again. Another record breaker. Our slowest & stupidest (& our bought & paid for) will tell you it has nothing to do with a #ClimateCrisis. They're reckless, wrong & turning our land into an ashtray. Stop listening to them. THREAD #abpoli #cdnpoli #GentThreads
But don't take my word for it. Take the @globeandmail's:

Don't listen to me. Listen to National Geographic /2 @natgeo nationalgeographic.com/environment/20…
Why listen to me when you can hear it straight from the @weathernetwork? /3 theweathernetwork.com/news/articles/…
I'm just some dude trying to get to his Sunday morning fried egg sandwich. What do I know? But NASA? NASA is a groups that *KNOWS* stuff like this. Here's what they're saying /4 theweathernetwork.com/news/articles/…
And a guy could go on but the straight skinny on it is this: the #ClimateCrisis is creating a much hotter planet. A hotter planet creates longer dry seasons which creates more kindling/fire fuel, regardless of whatever initially causes the blaze /5
When #FortMac went up in flames *most* of us in the #ClimateCommunity kept mum on the climate connection to more & bigger forest fires. That was your freebie. There won't be any more. It doesn't help to *NOT* show the connection /6 ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=8…
7 out of 10 of the costliest disasters in Canadian history were in Alberta. The connection to Climate is clear to SCIENCE & the non-blinded. How'll our latest fire rate? Once the horror & sheer terror fades will we be getting tired of this anytime soon? /7
Alberta just overwhelmingly voted in another "conservative" government who's only response to the #ClimateCrisis is to axe the #CarbonTax & attack climate groups. Our smokey Augusts'll become smokey Julys. If you voted Conservative you voted for SMOKE /8 #abpoli #ableg #cdnpoli
We all want to villainize some careless halfwit for blindly tossing a lit cigarette from a passing car that torches our forests to the ground & by all means villainize them but the real folks to blame? If you do nothing for CLIMATE then look in a mirror. It's YOU. OWN IT /END
PT1: These images are not officially sanctioned by @smokey_bear who probably has a tough enough job just dealing with the halfwits & the cigarette butts. Smokey needs to make the #ClimateCrisis transition but with *this* American government? Maybe just keep your head down, Smokes
PT2: What's the kid-friendly informative mascot of the #ClimateCrisis? Like so much about all this, we don't have it yet. I don't even know if anybody's thinking about it. As a country and as a world we have not yet even BEGUN to fight. Happy Sunday everybody!
