Oh the weather outside is frightful

It’s not often we get snow in Vancouver, but on this fine March morning much of the city woke up to a Christmassy surprise. There’s no question the weather has become more volatile in recent years. It was only a few years ago that we received the record breaking torrents of rain that resulted in the fatal landslide of a North Vancouver residence. Yesterday we had hail accompanying sun and today, in spring, a blizzard of snow has descended upon us. Can these bizarre climatic anomalies be attributed to global warming? Is this not a paradox? If the temperature is rising, why are we not woken by rays of sunlight and a warm breeze? Maybe the writers of The Day After Tomorrow had it right – the weather is simply becoming more sporadic, more volatile. Mother Earth, perhaps, is lashing back in response to the decades of abuse she has endured. This also fits with equilibrium – nature will not sit back and take a beating without beating us back in return. We live in a cyclical world and as Newton so accurately ascertained, “for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” Whatever the cause, the weather of recent should be seen as a sign that industrial progress should be viewed warily and if not careful, society will progress to its own destruction.
