No sign of "global warming" at "world's longest skating rink"

Brian LilleyArchive

When it freezes over every winter, Ottawa's Rideau Canal turns into "the world's longest skating rink."

And this is the 55th straight day it's been open to the public.

That's a record. Believe me, as a long time Ottawa resident, I should know.

The Rideau Canal normally thaws out at least once in a while during the winter season, rendering it unsafe for skating.

But not this year.

And speaking of global warming, did you hear about the climate change bigwig who's been charged with sexual harassment...?

Where you in the 1970’s Montreal was a perpetual -15 F and often drifted to -35 . Summers were often in the high 80’s F and a few days over 100F At -40 bot F And C are the Same temperature I spent the winter of 1972-3 in Faro Yukon noted as one of Canada’s COLD spots at many days of -67 F as a daytie high and -77 for a night time low . Dont ask me about the summers there. Evidence of Canadas HIGHS and LOWS are A/ cyclical B we have seen worse in a one time in a decade . since 1987 I have made a mental note of HOW hot BC has been and its steadily Rising and HOW cold our Winters they too have been abnormally WARM the Snowfall has been LOW and our Water Shortages no reaching critical the warpth of our winters has been rising from a typical of many days below freezing to not one day below 2 Degree C high and below -2 C ( Abbotsford BC ) these cold days are now RARE and Below our considered norm. in the 1760-80 Abbotsford was considered as the COLD spot of the Lower Mainland BC -10 C was common and +3 from December till march also seldom broken
Typically our Daytime High is + 12 C above 1964 the 50 year Mark You cannot compare last year to this. you must look back in Decades and half centuries.
Primarily the problem is the Misuse of terms A common issue of News Casters
GLOBAL WARMING YES our summers are Perpetually HOT and in some places winters also But in many Winters are perpetually frigid and Far colder than the last 50 year NORM . THE TERM IS CLIMATE CHANGE not Simply Warming. Lets DROP the term WARMING and look at the truth. We are MISUSING TERMANOLOGY to MAKE a POINT dependant upo Season we must look at the TRUTH and stop singularizing a few days . On average the temperature has risen 5 times faster than in any past century of period in the Planets environmentally stable period in billion’s of years. It was observed that the major Disasters caused sudden and long lasting periods of Cold or ragging hot. We can also point to Contaminants that became air born and circulated within the OZONE LAYER. We are doing the same thing with Carbon pollution and Freon and many more chemicals we MISUSE.
I spent my working life as a Environmental Chemist and I sold and Made clear the dangers of misuse. Knowledge of the history of chemical production and lack of facilities to produce Safely helped me change the way the Forest industry uses a single Product this ended Dioxin pollution and allowed the world’s major producers to produce the Main chemical DIOXIN FREE PARENT Chemical Thus impacting on EVERY user of the parent chemical. This non earth shattering observation has made the World wide uses and end product in your homes FREE of DIOXINS. YET People like SUZUKI and Green Peace MORONS still cry about Dioxin pollution Sorry Guy its a DEAD issue however you will until the globe is consumed by the Suns decay remain within our polluted zones of the 1980’s.Its like Global warming the Wrong Statement is applied. Your winters will get colder longer and summers otter and Longer we will have 2 seasons then one will slowly consume me the other. We will end in an Ice age or a Fried Planet like Mercury.
We must look at the total picture not simply the Rideau Canal.
WE mist pressure china to End its USE of Coal they are destroying the ability of the planet to buy the goods the Coal kelps produce.

Richard, were you not here in the 80’s this kind of weather was the norm. We are more than happy to see a return of the winters we grew up with. The weather this year has obviously sent all the bad weather to the east. We get a break for a change. There is a reason the global warming narrative was changed to climate change. It’s because the people in control of this hoax knew that the weather was not changing like they predicted it would. Hence climate change covers weather patterns both up and down. The useful idiots may have been fooled but the rest of us knew from the beginning what they were up to. It’s all about keeping the money flowing from the gullible to the con artists. The Goar’s and Suzukis of this world. The ones who follow these cult leaders are often the ones we so lovingly refer to as the " useful idiots"

MSM will NOT pick up on this story. It does not suit their agenda!

The skating path on the Rideau Canal in Ottawa has not been the “world’s longest skating rink” for quite a few years, Brian Lilley. Winnipeg took over that distinction at least 3 years ago, when we extended the Assiniboine/Red River skating path to be quite a bit longer. I think now the Rideau path is the “World’s longest skating path on a man-made waterway” – LAME!!!

The AGW scam is the largest fraud in history, and just look at the pseudo-scientits initiating this , Gore, Suzuki, PAchauri, they make a very good living out of it.

i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again. Lilley sure knows how to wear a scarf!

Did you hear about the climate change chair in the winter of his life who was hot for the cold front young things?

Oh dick, I’ve been in Alberta since 63. I remember as a child no snow til Christmas. It’s no different this year.every year has deviations but I stil have 2 feet of snow now. We’re nothing to this planet. We can’t change it. We can help humanity if we quit screwing around with helping the planet

Richard, it was actually in 1980, I left the east which was at the time in a very cold start to winter with above normal snow to AB, and the whole month of January and part of February was 10 to 15 C , played Frisbee football. Oddly CA was going through a drought, which is what it has seen this year, shouldn’t be a surprise they are part of a desert.

Funny, as out here in Alberta we’ve had literal downpours of rain during February. Not freezing rain, but the same kind of rain we normally would get in spring. In 30 years I have never seen such a mild February here in Alberta.

My point is: freak weather events don’t mean a damn thing. If 55 consecutive days of ice not thawing is proof global warming doesn’t exist, then I’m pretty sure that spring rains in February that have never occurred in Alberta until this year prove that it does.

More BS “reporting” from “The Rebel”.
