So no one cares about fixing global warming if they have to pay for it.
In 2008 our government wanted to confiscate $30 to $36 a month just for the first phase of carbon tax. By 2022 that was supposed to explode to around $100 a month for "an average family of 4".
It's all about the money.
See the problem is they believe in global warming but also know allowing the government to fix it is a scam.

Someone's extreme bias is affecting reading skills.

Both record highs and record lows (and record droughts, as Europe is experiencing) drive home the point that the climate is destabilizing.
There were a record number of weather records in 2018... and that is a bad thing.
Barely mentioning it was -37 doesn't describe the scale, duration of the cold and completely ignores the snow.
