Climate Change is Real

Learn To Be There, When Needed

Climate change is real and it’s here to stay. We have noticed a drastic change in our weather system and scientists predict it’s here to stay and, will likely get worse. Flooding, out of control fires, droughts and the list goes on, but are we prepared?

Yes, we have always had bad bouts of weather, but they’re getting more severe and staying longer.

ARE WE PREPARED FOR CLIMATE CHANGE

MY QUESTION IS, In case of a catastrophic event, and this is our normal future weather, is our Country prepared, “are we as people” prepared for such events. Well, SORT OF, maybe.

We have an emergency broadcast system to tell us, in case of an emergency we should either move to higher ground or lower to the basement. Sirens go off to tell you something is happening and you should, at least … DUCK.

∞∞ Yes our government does research in climate projection data, effects of climate change and climate change organizations that give you more data. They have training and regional workshops on CLIMATE DATA collecting.  Thousands of dollars are spent on data information but nothing on real skills.

Skills for not only when it gets bad, but for when the weather gets worse.

If such a catastrophic event happens, are we trained in REAL LIFE-SAVING skills, or, ANY survival skills? Chances are, I would say NO.

Climate Change Real

As we speak we have ‘out of control’ fires in British Columbia We put out a call, and hundreds of trained firefighters from every part of the globe come to our help. In some small way, should all Canadian citizens have some form of training in firefighting? With all the forests and greenery in our country, I would say a definite “YES”

My point is if these catastrophic events keep happening and this is the normal weather pattern here and around the world, and the global warming is “Real” then we as a country and citizens, should prepare ourselves “IN REAL LIFE-SAVING Skills”

We should implement a “National LIFE SAVING PREPAREDNESS PROGRAM, and WORKSHOPS ACROSS CANADA” for young and old.

In Ontario, Canada we are prone to:

“State of Emergency Act”

Reading the State of Emergency Act, the government that first declared it has every right to pull you out of your car and force you to help.

But do they? NO. Most people do not have any real disaster saving skills to help in such tasks, but WE SHOULD.

♥ Trained skills such as: ♥

∞CPR

∞The Heimlich Maneuver.

∞Preventing Hypothermia.  flooding

∞Using an AED.

∞Controlling Bleeding.

∞Escape from a Sinking Car.

∞Exit a burning building.

∞Fire Fighting.

∞ Ice Rescue.

∞And many more to suit your area!

Learning basic survival in an emergency would be an asset to you, your family, friends, and Country when called upon. And, I’m not talking about stocking up on food. I’m talking about real life-saving skills.

Is Canada at War

Is Canada at war? NO! but Canada should have declared war on these 600 wildfires in  British Columbia, Canada. These fires are plaguing one of Canada’s most heavily wooded provinces in our country. Our Prime Minister should call it for what it is, a natural disaster of epic proportion. We should use everything, and I mean everything at our disposal to control this devastating event.

Declare war on these 600 wildfires IN B.C., well, maybe that’s going too far, but “State of Emergency” YES.

In my estimation, the federal government took far too long to send in extra help from our Armed Forces.  The feds. should have declared  “A state of Emergency” much sooner to fight these out of control forest fires. We all know that fires are unpredictable and dangerous.

Major hectares (acres) are burning by the hour and everybody is waiting for paperwork to be shuffled from one desk to the other. Bureaucratic Diplomacy, that’s what they call it.

By the time the extra help arrived,

∞ thousands of acres had been destroyed.

∞ 18,000 people affected.

∞ Wildlife just, “gone”.

Just in case anybody is watching, time is of the essence. The fire and smoke are now crossing borders and still out of control. Last time I checked the smoke has reached approximately 3300 kilometers east.

By law, the government declaring the emergency has the authority to direct any and all resources at their deposal to put this catastrophic fire out, “including manpower”.

When the State of Emergency is declared? 

THIS IS WHAT IT MEANS

  • In some cases, conscript citizens to help with efforts to manage the emergency
  •  In others, to authorize qualified citizens to assist in emergency management efforts
  •  Confiscate equipment and property that will assist in emergency management 
  •  Make goods and resources available for distribution to those areas impacted

Round up every able body, heavy piece of equipment, high pleasure water pumps, anything and everything. Bring them from across Canada and lets put out that fire. BC has approximately 20,000 lakes and that’s a lot of water, and we have a lot of water pumps. Drain all those lakes if you have to.

Everybody’s health is at risk from the smoke.

The smoke is now going global, and the long-term damage it will have on the health and welfare of all Canadians breathing these fumes will be second to none.

Undoubtedly the extra cost in finding and moving this equipment from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean would be great. But it would justify the long-term problems that a lot of Canadians will inherit inhaling all this smoke from these fires.

Put this fire out.

High-Pressure water pumps

These water bombers and all the aircraft equipment are tirelessly working day and night to put out these fires. I haven’t read anywhere that the water being dumped on these fires may, in fact, be evaporated before it even hits the fire.  Which means,  we need more of something to help with these fires.

As with most forest fires, you see a form of fire retardant is being used by the aircraft, which is on its own is not a good environment alternative.

Get more bodies and equipment to that Province and put that fire out!

Through all fairness, the B.C government has brought in many firefighters and equipment from around the globe, but they are still losing this fire.
