Some say we can't afford to stave off global warming. I guess they stand to make money off of recovering & rebuilding from the increase in incidents of flooding & wildfires.http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/saskatchewan/saskatchewan-flooding-36-communities-declare-state-of-emergency-1.2692213?cmp=rss

There's less rain today, but the situation in flood-wracked southeastern Saskatchewan continues to be dire, with another 20 communities declaring a state of emergency.
Some areas got as much as 200 millimetres (7.87 inches) of rain from Friday to Monday, causing bridges, roads and culverts to be washed out.
Some farm families were stuck in their homes — or in towns away from their homes — after flood waters rose on Sunday.
Highways and grid roads on the east side the province near the Saskatchewan-Manitoba border were under water in spots and some routes have been closed.
The area includes a big chunk of Saskatchewan's farm belt and for many farmers, the weekend rain will mean a poor crop or no crop at all this year.
