IMO the weather that has been happening in AB this year is a result of the last 40 years of tree removal from the north. Have you ever been to north of Mariana lakes?It is virtually a desert up there. By creating a artificial desert in a historically colder area it has had serious effects on the weather patterns of said area. In 2001 I saw it rain snow hail and sleet in a matter of 15 min in the middle of February. 45 minutes north of Ft Mcmurray. Don't tell me climate change isn't a real thing.
