Well, we’ve had a good laugh here in Alberta at the expense of yet another celebrity who has come to our fair province with an agenda. In this case it was the “Titanic” star, Leonardo DiCaprio who mistook our blustery Chinook Snow Eater for proof of climate change. As I have blogged several times before, our Chinooks can wreak havoc on those who are sensitive to sudden barometric pressure, but it can also within hours raise our temperatures from below zero to double digits.
