Anecdotal Evidence

We’re having a bit of a heat wave in the nation’s capital right now.

I haven’t been able to remember a spring that got this hot this early. Usually, there are warm sunny days and cold cold nights–perfect weather around March Break for sap to flow quickly, perfect weather for making maple syrup at the farm. It’s so consistently warm now that CBC ran a feature yesterday evening about syrup producers’ concerns that the industry will take a hit from the bizarre weather.

Just out of curiosity, I looked at the historical temperature data from my weather app:

On average, it’s going to be 29 degrees Celcius warmer today than it’s ever been in Ottawa.

This is so surface-level it’s almost laughable, but if anyone doubts that climate is changing, this should make them think twice.

Paddle your own canoe, guys and gals,
