"I've been saying 8 to 16 years but I really think it will be within the decade and could happen much sooner. The 9/11 of climate change will happen in the US or Canada."
It is already happening.
If you are interested in climate and the environment I recommend you look up Maude Barlow from the Council of Canadians. She has written many books and is an expert on the environmental impacts of trade deals and the sell off of Canadian water.
Jusr like Lascsrius, she is extremely articulate and her books will get your blood boiling. And she is a Liberal.
ETA: I shouldn't project a political party onto her. Forty years ago she wrote favourably of the Liberal party and against the PC's. She has always written like she is someone who is left wing. Then she would write in her books to put all political faith into the Liberal party. She doesn't do that anymore.
If you want a good history of government policy in Canada, read all of her books going back 35 years.
