My name is Ted Taylor. I am 68 years old and was born in Coronation, Alberta. When I grew up on the prairies, winter temperatures regularly dropped to 40 below zero Fahrenheit. Winters were so cold that people poured hot water on car radiators to thaw them and used blow torches to warm their engines so they would turn over. Now we have winters so warm that the Pine Beatle thrives in the north. Throughout my lifetime I have witnessed changes to the weather that convince me that global warming is real. The majority of us have buried our heads in the sand, fallen victim to the climate deniers and the big money spin machine. We have chosen to marginalize credible scientist, ignored warnings and carried on with business as usual. I have been just as guilty as any. However, in the last few years I have become increasingly concerned. Hopefully you’ll read this document and become as concerned. Afterwards, if you still have doubts, Google “2 degrees centigrade environment”, start reading and decide for yourself. It’s time to get serious about global warming!
