      the delta in emissions from those sources over alternative scenarios, yes.  I leave that up to the respondent in the poll without being more explicit about the various paths by which impacts occur.

      in those tailing ponds that are so deadly, they have to spray water cannons to keep migratory water birds from landing on them.

      Or the increase in cancers in the indigenous populations in Alberta, or the increase in fertility problems, no male children being born in some communities,

      Etc.

      •  Lots of impacts (0+ / 0-)

        I see CO2 rise as a potential (not assured) extinction level event, and the other impacts, however serious, as secondary and mitigable.
