So, no answer in that "answer" by Gordo, just more shapeless, senseless blah-blah-blah gibberish by Gordo, triggered by someone making a "climate change" sound.
Climate has been changing for as long as there is a dry piece of land which is now Calgary. And it will keep changing. If there is 1.2 Mpersons occupying that spot, they should be doing something to adapt to those changes. Wow!!! What a concept, eh Gordo.
The only issue with this "adaptation" is that it serves the politicos to hit reach deeper into peoples' pockets. Using natural phenomena to tax people excessively.
When will Gordo start advocating taxing oxygen?
