Fine St. Patio's Day sounds alarms on climate change; Toronto, Canada

Fine St. Patio's Day sounds alarms on climate change -
What a (winter? spring? summer?) break: The thermometer hit a balmy 16C on Wednesday, St. Patrick's Day, and the Toronto crowd happily took to the downtown bars and patios. Following that, Thursday's high was 19C.
But are we frogs in the pot?
In the old story, an amphibian's bliss in a warm bath turns fatal when the water's temperature is made to rise.
It happens so gradually the frog doesn't notice. In fact, weather records show temperatures have been slowly rising in Toronto for decades and the forecast, believe it or not (climate change is a controversial science) is that warming will continue.
