Climate Irony

Mar. 14, 2014

McGill University biology professor Dr. Catherine Potvin was scheduled to host a lecture on global warming at the University of Windsor on Wednesday, but Mother Nature decided to throw in another hard dose of irony. According to a promotional in The Windsor Star, her discussion was going to focus on “halting deforestation in the tropics – one of the strategies that’s hoped to mitigate the changes that industrialization is wreaking upon the Earth’s climate.” However, the school, located just outside Detroit in Windsor Ontario, Canada, was hit by heavy snowfall, forcing the event’s cancellation. Unfortunately for alarmists, there was another ironic twist: Wednesday’s storm also helped shatter the city’s snowfall record, and guidance suggests more to come in the coming weeks. Mother Nature always gets the last laugh.
