    1. 𝓥𝓾𝓵𝓬𝓪𝓷𝓲𝔃𝓮𝓭 𝓜𝓲𝓷𝓮𝓻𝓪𝓵 𝓦𝓪𝓽𝓮𝓻 says:

      No… we literally drained the soil to dust from over farming.

    2. @𝓥𝓾𝓵𝓬𝓪𝓷𝓲𝔃𝓮𝓭 𝓜𝓲𝓷𝓮𝓻𝓪𝓵 𝓦𝓪𝓽𝓮𝓻 You uh, underestimate the amount of landmass there is in the west, and the amount of it that’s properly irrigated for farming, and the amount that actually gets utilized.

      What you’re describing is a real issue. It may have been part of the problem, but yeah. It wasn’t just depleted soil.

  1. Why were they called the dirty thirties?
    Some of our seniors living in a prairie provinces can give you the answer!

  2. Funny how arrogant humans are. As if we have any control over the Earth, the Sun and the cosmic cycles within this tiny blip of existence.

    1. @Bob1Barker2 they don’t have control over it! They only changed it. B/c if they had control the weather would be perfect all the time.

    2. @Bob1Barker2 No. The Sun is the primary driver for climate and weather phenomenon on Earth. You can fit about 1.3 million Earths into the Sun. How many HAARP arrays were there? One? And you are going to say that a tiny little array has ANY comparison to the Sun? GTFOOH…..

  3. “Heat dome??” Atmospheric dome, not heat dome. Increase pressure equals a higher atmosphere equals a thinner atmosphere equals more radiation equals more heat during the day, less rain and cool nights, like in California, now.

    1. Hey Mark you ever hear about the dunning kruger effect ? Id love for you to cite your sources 😀

    2. @John I had to look that up. That’s an expert level burn! Next level trolling for sure. I’m impressed

  4. Many States set their all time low temps for June, the world wide temperature average for 2021 is 0.2c higher that the 1979 to 2020 average.

    1. Snowstorms in Texas and Canada set their all time high with 49 C almost beating Death Valley! crazy how we screwed up the climate this much!

    2. @FeistyPapa no we didn’t, you just want something to complain about. Climate change while real is unbelievably exaggerated…kinda like covid.

    1. Apparently far right-wingers are claiming that Trudeau says that if we vote for him again, there wont be anymore heat waves. Idiots.

    2. @thimblemunch Agreed. The OP had to be from some far right winger with no education. He has to be a troll.

    3. @Tom
      If you were asked if Climate Change started the fires out west in B.C. what would your answer be.?..

    1. Remember the 90s that were warmer? Remember the 00s that were warmer? Remember the 10s that were warmer? Bet you $100 that the 2020s will be warmer.

    1. @Kloko Loko Battery’s are a huge problem with rare earth minerals & will continue to be a huge enviro disaster .

    2. @Bye-bye Trudeau Batteries are recycled and do not use rare earth minerals.
      You do not even know from what metals car battery is made of..

    3. @Trish Pharaon Type in YouTube “The Dirty Truth about Combustion Engine Vehicles” And you have excellent video that will open your eyes.

    1. You do not even understand the problem.
      This is just like saying that for winter you need diving-suit and not jacket.

  5. Many ancient civilizations performed human sacrifices offering their hearts to the “climate change gods” during these periods where the weather didn’t cooperate.

    1. You can’t fix climate change. It’s been happening for… well… Since the earth started. And it will continue.

  6. Temperatures and carbon emissions have been higher 6 times in the past. Geological records prove, each time was preceded by an ice age…now that’s factual Science!

  7. Nope, Covid, everything is Covid, nothing else but Covid is responsible for absolutely everything. Where have you been the past year and a half, like seriously?😒

  8. “Covid caused this heatwave guys get your shots stay in your home and vote for Trudeau, trust me Trudeau has super powers that makes it so heat doesn’t exist”

    1. Lmao, no one says it hasn’t. They are saying it is exasperated by human actions.
