Dust Bowl and an end to oil

With southern Alberta and Saskatchewan turning into dust bowls that will far exceed the ravages of the 1930's, the question will quickly come down to available drinking water versus water available for oil processing. Humans can live without oil, they can't live without water. With the mountain glaciers all melting or melted because of global warming, and thus with no means of replenishing prairie rivers, except random rain storms, it would appear that the once mighty economy of the bastion of climate-change-deniers will be reduced to little if any activity for generations, it's as if some Biblical wasteland will have been reaped by all that rapacious sowing. Michael Ignatieff's suggestion that the future lies in Alberta, has to be treated with serious scepticism, since it is far more probable that the province will revert to pre-1947 poverty levels, with populations having dwindled to the core of obstinancy that appears to govern the ideological blindness of Alberta politics.

Since half the stories are from Fox news that makes them least likely to trustworthy as actual fact, or fact out context to make the case for Fox corporatist agenda. Here is an interesting site however as antidote to your list http://www.skepticalscience.com/himalayan-glaciers-growing.htm

You also just proved to me once more that Anonymous commenters lack the strength of their own convictions and the validity of the talking points that the mouth with increasing regularity. When the future comes to pass, history - and your own grandchildren - will look back on all obstructionists and deniers and curse you to the hell you deserve for getting in the way of human survival.
