John Smith, the warming temperatures, especialy up north, is more rapid than the srientist predicted. CO2 is the main driver, look at the charts. But if you deny the man made causes , what specifically is the present cause? It happened before so we are not contributors now? These present changes are over a very short time frame. Weather Andy beleives in global warming or not, Igor damage is unlikely sufficient to show a increased pattern here of storm damage. But that will likey change. Maybe next rate hike. I guess John, you approve of this rate hike after the one 6 months ago? Needed right?

Give Andy Wells some credit for standing up alone instead of following like the rest of the sheep. PUB, although its days are numbered, serves a purpose and after all the consumer advocate has fumbled and dropped the ball pretty well.There are enough perks in place for Newfoundland Power without a markup for the climate change. Aboriginal rights are good but on their own dime-not with welfare and perks paid by those who work hard for the money.

Global warning and climate change are as different as night and day, not one and the same

For the record, climate change and global warming are interchangeable terms. The former was coined by pollster Gary Lunz during the Bush administration to make ithe phenomenon sound less dire.

Yeah Andy is an idiot for sure I mean snow used to be over the poles 50 years ago, that was every year. The glaciers are way smaller than they used to be, what a fool.

I'm no climate change denier, but I do think arguments for climate change are exaggerated and inconsistent. Whenever a denier says, "why'd we have our coldest winter in 20 years if the globe is warming?" or some such nonsense, a climate change believer will say, "that's weather, not climate." But then Hurricane Sandy strikes (and hurricanes have been hitting New England since colonial times) and all of a sudden THAT weather phenomenon is solid evidence of climate change. Climate change is happening, but it's happening slowly, and we're already taking measures to counteract it (fuel-efficient cars, energy-saving appliances, etc.). The best thing you can do is regularly e-mail your elected representative with concerns, specific or general, about regulating the carbon output of industry, by far the grossest contributor.

What was Danny Williams thinking when he appointed this clown to the PUB? He's the main reason why I didn't support sending Muskrat Falls to the PUB. Does anybody know when his appointment is finished?
