We’re still calculating sea levels. Give us a few days.
We’re getting pretty close on the sea level thing. The oceans have been rising by about 3mm/yr. That’s about a foot every hundred years. In a couple of centuries we’ll have to seriously consider raising those boat docks at the cottage.

Deaths more than doubled on Vancouver Island during last week’s record-breaking heat wave, according to preliminary date from the B.C. Coroners Service.
Ninety-seven Island deaths were reported to the coroner between June 25 and July 1. The average for the same period over the past five years is about 42.
Overall, the heat wave is suspected to have led to 579 deaths across British Columbia. A total of 777 deaths were reported in the province from June 25 to July 1 — nearly four times the five-year average of 198.

Just 25 big cities – almost all of them in China – accounted for more than half of the climate-warming gases pumped out by a sample of 167 urban hubs around the world, an analysis of emissions trends showed on Monday.

I suppose you all saw the incredible footage of the floods in Germany--but look at this from China today:
Subway passengers trapped in chest-high water.
What a nightmare.

A group of demonstrators calling on the B.C. government to take urgent action on the climate emergency plans to block a major intersection in Vancouver this weekend.
Extinction Rebellion's Vancouver chapter plans to block the intersection of Main Street and Broadway on Saturday (Sept. 25) following a family-friendly event in Prince Edward Park.
The demonstrators will gather in the park at 3773 Prince Edward Street at noon for a family-friendly event offering art, music, and activities for children.

Ever since the glacier that was three blocks from my house melted 10,000 years ago I’ve been worried about this global warming thing. The way things are going we’re going to have to move those picnic tables at Clover Point sometime in the next 400 or 500 years. Otherwise water will be lapping over their legs and ruining all the family events down there. It’s a worry.

I’d like to see the actual measurable evidence in View Royal. I suspect there is none. if there is it’s probably a net positive. Less space heating required.
A recent study on the global economic impacts of climate change by Moody’s concluded that Canada could be a “climate winner”: one of few countries that might benefit from a warming world. According to Moody’s, Canada’s GDP could increase by up to 0.3 per cent—about $9 billion per year—by the middle of this century. Other studies cite expanded farmland, increased economic productivity, and a decrease in cold-related deaths as potential benefits. Such findings have fuelled claims that investing in reducing greenhouse gas emissions here at home is a waste of money.

“June heat wave killed 569 people in B.C., coroners service”: https://vancouversun...oroners-service
“It is now officially the third most destructive wildfire season on record in the province, after updated statistics showed more than 8,580 square kilometres of land has been burned so far in 2021… The worst wildfire seasons in B.C.'s history were 2018 (nearly 13,550 square kilometres burned) and 2017 (more than 12,160 square kilometres).”:
I don’t think this is evidence of BC being a “climate winner”.

BC pop is about 5.1 million now, and in 1930 was 676,000 (StatsCan). So 569 people this year translates to about 75 people in 1930. You're saying there there was 75 hundred heat deaths in 1930? You have a source for that?
