You can’t argue with those numbers, skeptics! If you happened to be living in Canada, you will attest to the warm November we’ve had so far. I’m not complaining; maybe Canada will become one of the best places (climatically) to live in 25 years from today. But what about the Bangladeshes and the Sudans and the Maldives of the world, where rising sea waters and increasing desertification are creating climate refugees even today.
