Promoting Fear & Anxiety - The New Norm?

Government Deliberately Promoting

Concern & Anxiety? 

The following Weather Statement was issued by Environment Canada on June 22 2022, warning residents of summer-like weather headed our way. After months of damp, cloudy, dreary days this is welcome news for those of us who enjoy sunshine, gardening and frollicking on the beach.

For some reason the government has deemed it necessary to warn us of this impending disaster so we will be prepared.

Let's examine this dire warning and interpret what is being said with some old fashioned common sense.

We are being warned that we might experience the first hot stretch of summer over the next few days. This will expose us to the hazard of daytime temperatures rising into the upper 20's and overnight lows in the mid teens. Imagine reaching into the upper 20's in the summer time!!

Of course we are told that higher temperatures bring the threat of heat related illnesses. But there will be some respite from the sweltering heat as night time temperatures fall into the mid teens.

Being overcome by temperatures in the high 20's is not the only threat we are being warned about. The rising temperatures also bring the threat of snowmelt and snowpack instability and rising stream levels.

Leaving no threat unspoken we are also warned that althoug we may experience heat, the water temperture is likely so cold as to induce hypothermia!!!

The severe threat is expected to last only from Friday until the following Tuesday, when daytime highs will again be in the mid to high teen range.

I am reminded of the quote: The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Keeping the population in a constant state of angst creates it's own health issues which could be just as dangerous as the threat being promoted. There is a whole range of health issues that anxiety can bring on from affecting your immune system, digestive system, cardiovascular system, headaches, insomnia and depression to name a few. We have had over two years of constant fear enforcing narrative which some professionals claim has caused more harm than the virus. A skeptic might wonder if there is not a deliberate attempt on the part of government to keep us so worried we are not paying attentiion to what they are doing to the country.

Affected Area
East Vancouver Island - Duncan to Nanaimo

First hot stretch of the summer for the south coast.

Timespan: Friday through Tuesday.

Locations: Inland areas of Vancouver Island and Sunshine Coast.

Hazards: Daytime highs rising into the upper 20's with overnight lows down to the mid-teens.

The south coast will experience a stretch of warmer than average temperatures beginning later this week. On Friday, inland temperatures will reach into the mid to upper 20's. Through the weekend and into early next week, temperatures will remain in the upper 20's until Tuesday. There will be some respite from the elevated daytime temperatures as overnight lows fall into the mid-teens.

With elevated temperatures, the risk of heat related illnesses increase.

Freezing levels rise throughout this event and will lead to an increase in snowmelt and snowpack instability. Increased stream flows due to run-off are possible.

Although heat is expected, bodies of water still remain cool for this time of year and may pose a risk of hypothermia when exposed to cold water for a prolonged period of time.
