So, what do you do when the world's top scientists are telling you that there is an impending crisis that must be dealt with immediately?
If you're the government of Canada, the answer is to cut the funding for those scientists. 
Apparently its easier to stifle the problem than deal with it.
A news report out yesterday has top climate scientists in Canada standing up and putting the government on notice:
Nobel Prize-winning scientists from Canada say the Harper government is failing to protect the country from the dangers of global warming because it has shut down a federal climate change research network and blocked new studies on the impact of rising greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere.”
