In Monday's opening essay, Jian proposes that the quintessentially Canadian question "hot enough for ya?" has a chilling answer: yes, and it's only getting worse.
The world is experiencing unprecedented, high-impact climate extremes. A recent report by the World Meteorological Organization says that in the period between 2001 and 2010, global warming broke more countries' temperature records than ever before
"It seems we've lost a little focus since Mr. Gore pointed out that little inconvenient truth back in the summer of 2006," said Jian. "Climate change chatter isn't cool anymore . . . and that is a problem."
