Are Toronto City Councillors  Dumber Than A Sack Of Hammers?

Some climate committee wants them to spend billions to deal with huge new increases in projected rainfall.

“Toronto must overhaul its aging infrastructure to adapt to dramatic new climate change projections — a process that could cost billions — say some councillors and environmentalists.”

“The city’s roads, sewers, storm drains and electrical grids were simply not built to withstand the new climate, said Councillor Gord Perks, a member of the committee.”

What new climate??????

Here is rainfall data from Environment Canada for Toronto’s Pearson Airport from 1950.

There is no new trend in rainfall. Click on the graph to make it bigger. Values on the left are % of the 1971-2000 average. Each month with data is a dot. The blue line is the Loess Curve.

    – how does one adapt to a projection? Walk round it to avoid poking your eye out?

    I read recently (and will post on it soon) that homes and infrastructure around Puget Sound (Washington state) are threatened as the sea level “creeps up”. The creeps at city hall aren’t aware the water’s not going anywhere, but creeping down currently. These people live on a planet all their own – I wish they’d actually find their own somewhere – a few candidates exist around nearby stars.
