Global warming is a fait accompli
Re: “The Davos Garden of Doom,” by Terence Corcoran, Jan. 25.

Like global warming alarmists, Terence Corcoran fails to realize that global warming has already taken place and no carbon tax can reverse it and it is not all bad.

In the chapter : “Go Global Warming!” about his 2007 visit to Greenland, of his book Silly Isles, Australian journalist Eric Campbell writes: “The icebergs were more plentiful this summer thanks to rising temperatures speeding up the ice cap’s annual melt. Glaciologists were warning the accelerating melt could raise sea levels around the world. But many of Greenland’s 58,000 residents couldn’t be happier, and none more so than Kenneth Huegh.

“Kenneth was a government agricultural consultant on an island that until recently had very little agriculture. Most food was imported from its old colonial master Denmark. But since the mid-90s the average annual temperature had risen two degrees. Now, in 2007, this inappropriately named land of ice was suddenly turning greener.”

Similarly, for a cold northern country like Canada, global warming means shorter winter and longer growing season and we can benefit from it. Instead of criticizing Davos participants, Terence Corcoran should write about how to adapt to global warming which is a fait accompli.
